Whether you have a lot of stuff or not, they should be stored properly to avoid mess and clutter in your home. This is extra challenging if you don’t have a lot of space for storage. It’s important to get creative and be smart about utilizing unused spaces in your room and turn them into extra storage.
Follow these brilliant storage ideas for small homes:
Layer your shelves
Make use of your walls! Install some shelves and layer them up in one row. Shelves are a great way to store books, bags, shoes and other small items that could cause clutter.
Vacuum pack chunky clothing
To save space in your closet, take out all your chunky clothes like coats, chunky sweaters, big jackets and other clothing that you only use seasonally. Vacuum pack these clothes and store them inside your suitcase or in a drawer.
Replace your regular night stand
A night stand is very useful but it takes up floor space. If you have a limited space, try a wall-mounted night stand instead. Just install a small corner shelf by your bed and you can place your books, alarm clock and daily necessities there.
Double your desk as a night stand
If you can’t do with a small shelf as a night stand, another option would be to use your desk as one. Simply arrange your small work desk near or beside your bed and it can double as your night stand!
Invest in a clothing rack
A huge closet isn’t ideal for a small bedroom. Try a clothing rack instead! This way, you can hang just the clothes you use regularly. Toss, donate or vacuum pack the others you don’t use or rarely use.
Get smart with shoe storage
One space that’s often wasted but can be used for storage is your door! You can buy a shoe storage designed specifically to be hung from your door!
Opt for a floating desk
A desk is one of the bulkiest pieces of furniture. Free up some floor space by using a floating desk – you can choose from the regular wall mount or the window mount for lovely views while working.
Ditch your hamper
Hampers and laundry baskets take up floor space. To save space, try a laundry bag/hamper that can hang from either the inside or outside of your closet door!
