If you’re struggling for space at home fear not, I have compiled my top 10 savvy space-saving tips to help you maximise storage and space.
1. Ditch your bedside table for a shelf
Make effective use of your bedroom wall. Pop a shelf on there and you have a bedside table that saves a ton of space.
2. Pop your TV on the wall
Another space-saving tip involving your walls. Mount your TV to free up space on your dressing table.
3. Add a bookshelf
If you need to create the illusion of taller ceilings invest in a vertical book shelf. It’s a great storage piece and will draw the eye upwards.
4. Built-in bench
This works great in a kitchen, lounge or dining room. Opt for a bench with a hollow bottom and it can also double up as extra storage.
5. Stick to white
Not only do white walls give a fresh and clean feel, they help to make a room look bigger than it actually is. You can add flashes of colour with cushions, prints and throws.
6. Keep window ledges clear
We all have photo’s, nice cards, flowers, random objects from your holiday in Spain, but refrain from putting them all on your window ledge. A simple vase with flowers or a set of candles is quite enough.
7. Floor space
Use the space under your bed effectively. Buy some storage boxes if they will fit or use flat pack bags to store clothing.
8. Towel storage
Add a rail to your sink to hang hand towels. Roll larger towels and store in drawers or on bathroom shelving.
9. Use your ceiling
Buy a pan rack to store pots, pans and other kitchen utensils on. These items take up space in cupboards that you don’t necessarily have. Hang them on a rack and create a country feel and stylish kitchen.
10. Clutter free
Clear your worktops of anything that you don’t use daily, use cupboards and drawers to store all the bits and pieces that don’t need to be out all the time. You’ll be amazed at the difference this makes and the extra space you will create.
