November 18, 2013
Working with a small living space can be challenging—but with a few easy additions, your small space can be stylish, functional, and you may realize that if it’s used correctly, you don’t need as much space as you might have originally thought. Here are a few ideas to help make the most out of a minimum of square feet!
Not only are Murphy Beds a unique selling point in themselves, they’re an easy way to add an extra room without buying an extra room. With your bed folded up into the wall, the bedroom can be used for working or entertaining, without any hassles, fuss, or added expense.
Not enough storage space, but empty space near the ceiling? A drop-down ceiling closet allows you to transform empty space into a functional storage area, and can be a unique selling point when it’s time to put your house on the market.
Add-ins, Built-ins, and Storage Space
Furniture that does double duty as storage space will keep clutter from piling up, one of the main problems for small space home. However, building storage into hidden shelves, the bottom of open staircases, of multi-purpose cabinetry can make use of wall space that could be smart-looking and utilitarian for the homeowner.
Stacking Stands and Racks
Stacking stands and racks are ideal choices for kitchen and bathroom areas, allowing easy access to commonly used items in a vertical storage design, taking up less floor space. In the bathroom, this allows the countertops to stay clear, while providing a place for toiletries, linens and paper products to be conveniently accessible.
