In a home, especially where there is growth, it is a challenge to find space for all that you have. With technology today, there are several little clever tips that can help homeowners create or define extra storage space in nearly all rooms of your home. Let’s look at a few ideas that will free up space plus provide a way for you to save money.
Would you like a door to save you space? How about installing a sliding barn door. They are so easy to install, there are barn door kits for those that want to do it themselves. It doesn’t matter how wide your entryway is, a sliding barn door can fit any size doorway because they don’t need to fit a frame precisely. A small door frame is perfect for these unique room dividers. The space-saving feature is that they don’t open outward, they simply slide aside! These innovative doors can be used in any room of your home.
Vertical Bathroom Organizer
A vertical bathroom organizer with multiple shelving and drawers is perfect for saving space in the “throne room.” Vertical storage is always useful and practical especially in the bathroom where there are lots of little things that need to be stored or displayed. Vertical organizers in your home’s restroom is situated over the toilet.
The sofa in your living room that you have placed close to the wall, can be pulled out from the wall where you can place a long narrow table behind it. On the table, you have now created an extra place for books, knickknacks, or lamps. Adding a long table behind your sofa frees up space in your living room for your creative mind. If you would like to think outside the box, why not set some colorful canvas bins on top of the table and inside the bins, you have more storage.
Kitchen Shelving and Organizers
Home decorative stores have many clever space-saving ideas when it comes to innovative shelving schemes. For the kitchen, thin shelves with hooks beneath them to hang cups or cooking ware would free you up of counter space and pantry space. Additional organizing shelves and accessories are designed to fit inside your food pantry and your wall cabinets. There are accessories like wire racks that simply slip onto an existing shelf. You can use Command tapes to hang things or place a lazy susan onto your shelves for spices and more.
Dining Room or Living Room Ottomans
This space-saving idea is my favorite. It will help to transform your living areas. Furniture designers have created ottomans with removable tops for storing anything you want to be out of sight. An ottoman is most noticeably used to place your feet on top of. Well, with modern ottomans you still can, with the added benefit of storing magazines, or anything else, inside of it.
Crown Molding For Hanging Footwear and Clothing
This thinking-out-of-the-box idea is a Martha Stewart creation. With a few screws, hang long strips of crown molding inside your bedroom closet to hang your heels and clothing. Crown molding fits snugly against the wall with a slight overhang for shoe heels and hangers.
A Bed With Space
If you are thinking about buying a new bed, why not buy one with built-in drawers. These storage drawers would be great to store sheets, pillows, blankets, and more. Storage beds are a great space-saving idea. There are no outside handles for you to stub your foot on or to trip over, yet the drawers open rather easily.
Fold-out wall desks are the most innovative space-saving creation that can be found in many homes. To tidy up your home office or just to create a tuck-away workspace, fold-out desk furnishings are great. Your fold-out desk starts with a decorative looking box on the wall until you pull out the different sections revealing a tabletop and a leg that sits on the floor. When you are finished fold it back up and out of the way.
