You just made an appointment with Classic Home Concepts to give you a bid on a sunroom. You’re in the process of making major changes to your home, and one of the things you want to focus on is how to create more space.
Here are 4 tips to create more space in your home. Let’s get into it!
1. Declutter and Remove Bulky Furniture
One of the first things you should do if you’re looking to create more space in your home is to get rid of clutter or furniture that you don’t use. Take inventory of what in your home takes up space and see if you can’t swap it for more space-friendly pieces. Clunky, large furniture is a thing of the past.
Decluttering and removing bulky furniture are one of the easiest ways to make your home appear more spacious. Do you really need that large sectional that’s only ever full of guests a couple times a year? If you’ve grown attached to some pieces of furniture, consider putting them in the basement or somewhere that’s not in your daily living space.
2. Hideaway Spaces
If you have a home office or playroom that takes up a lot of space in your home, you should consider making them “hideaway spaces.” There are plenty of choices and options when it comes to hiding areas in your house that you’re not using as often. This is your chance to get creative with the rooms in your home.
Check out some pieces of furniture that are hybrid or foldable. This can come in handy when you want to put your desk away after you’re done working. As for a playroom, keep a toy box in there to make sure you don’t have your children’s playthings strewn about the space. Check out Pinterest for some ideas on how to make hideaway spaces in your home if you’re not sure where to start.
3. Staple Furniture
Once you’ve got rid of the furniture that takes up too much space, it’s time to invest in smaller, more functional pieces for your home. Take some time thinking about the seating you want in your house. If it’s just you – a quaint reading chair and loveseat will be just enough for your living room space.
You want to also think about other areas in your home – the kitchen being a big one. There’s no need for a massive dining room table if it’s hardly used. You want your dining room table to have just enough seating for the people in your home. When guests come to visit, it’s easy to put a few more chairs up. It’s also well worth it as you won’t have all that space taken up throughout the year.
4. Minimalist Décor
It’s a great thing that the minimalist look is in. If you have your walls covered with décor, this could actually make the room appear smaller. In a sense, you’re shutting and enclosing everything in. Decide on minimalist décor when it comes time to rearrange your home for more space!
