Space-Saving Hints

Any home can benefit from some space-saving tricks and tips. Here are some easy fixes for opening up some room in your house:

  • Use All Available Space
    Whether you save cabinet space by hanging coffee mugs on hooks beneath your cabinets or put your flip flops and loafers in hanging shoe organizers, seeking out unused space will offer major rewards. One of the most useful wasted areas is under the bed. Store luggage, seasonal clothes or extra bed linens in bins that slide under the bed.

  • Repurpose Containers
    A metal bucket can become a magazine holder (you can even decorate it to match your room), a set of wire mesh hanging baskets can come out of the kitchen and be used to hold accessories and save space in a closet or bathroom. Used margarine tubs can be used to hold small items in the garage, like nails, screws, and washers.

  • Keep Clutter Under Control
    Regularly sort drawers and get rid of the junk. That will open up more space to store needed items in handy places. Sort your mail when it comes, donít just lay it on the counter or side table to languish for days.

  • Buy Space-Saving Furniture
    An armoire with a fold-out desk can be tucked into the corner, eliminating the need for a space-hogging desk. Itíll provide some extra storage as well. Pieces that are made to fit into corners can utilize wasted space and open up space where itís most needed.
