Are you struggling with a small space? Do you have too much stuff lying around? Do not worry, as this guide can help you with that.
Maximizing the space around you can be difficult, especially when you don’t know where to start. Well, fret not because everybody struggles with it. You may be tempted to just throw out some items to make some room for other things. While this will definitely free up some space, the stuff you would be throwing out may hold some sentimental value or may still have some use or purpose in the future.
Working with the space available will be tricky, whether it’s a small studio apartment or a large warehouse. Here are some things you can do:
Use wall space
Sure, you can use your walls to hang paintings and photos. But did you know that you can do so much more with those walls? Instead of wasting your wall space, you can use it to hang or stack some of your items in a vertical manner. You probably were not using the space on the topmost part of your walls anyway, so why not maximize it?
An example of this can be seen in warehouses. The installation of mezzanine floor systems can help you stack different items on top of each other to fully utilize all the space you have. You can do the same in your place.
By hanging your items, you now have less stuff to deal with in the middle of the room. You will also gain easy access to those items.
Using drawers should already be easy to understand. You get a drawer, you put your items inside, and you are done. While that is the function of the drawer, there is still much more you can do.
For example, instead of shoving everything into your drawers, you can organize everything before putting them inside. Store certain items grouped together in one area while you set aside another space for winter clothes. You can use the space on top of the drawer for additional items, such as a small bookshelf, a place to put your photos, or even stack another drawer if you want.
Use the underside of your bed
Some people might have already done this, but if you haven’t, then you should consider using the space under your bed. It might be a little dusty, but after a few minutes or hours of cleaning, you will have more space to work with. The underside of your bed can be used to put in small or large boxes, depending on the size of the bed. Other important belongings can now be safely stored under the bed for easy access should you need them in the future.
There is so much you can do with the space you have in your place. You only need to get a little more creative and plan properly. After all of that, your place will be less cluttered and more organized. Get the help of professionals if necessary to achieve better results.
