Find More Space In A Small House

download (23)Our homes are becoming smaller. In fact, research has shown that British build homes are around 30 per cent more compact than they were 50 years ago. If you live in a modern house, you’ll already know what we’re talking about. Older homes can feel small too, particularly period properties with low roofs and rooms barely big enough for a double bed. Even if your house once felt like it was plenty big enough, the appearance of a child or two can turn your once nice residing into something rather pokey. If yourself you and family members are desperate for space for everything in your house, here are some top ideas for discovering more space, even in the smallest of residences.

1. Use height for storage: Look to advanced level racks, ground to roof book cases and wall hung cabinets to increase the storage space area by using that wasted walls surfaces above the eye line.

2. Built in where possible: Using integrated cabinets to make the most of unevenly shaped rooms can help make space where there was none before. If you have exposed stairways, use that space beneath to make useful toy or shoe storage space for the family members.

3. Divide and conquer: If you have large rooms, you could partition an existing space to make an extra bedroom, study or snug.

4. Use multi-purpose furniture: Footstools with built in storage space, nesting tables and divan beds are all very useful in small sized house. Store towels, bedding, DVDs or games in these sneaky areas to free up storage space for other things.

5. Use the attic: Attics are great extra areas for those items you don’t need very often. Periodic supplies like Christmas or Halloween designs are ideal for the attic space, and if you like to keep on to boxes for your electrical items, the attic space is the best place for these too.

If you find that you are still looking for more space. You may want to consider additional storage options. Residential Steel Buildings may be a great option for you. They offer the additional space you may need and can be customized to fit your needs.
