Have a Small Home? Use These Tips to Create Extra Space!
Living in a small space can feel cozy, but it can also feel challenging to find the space you need to comfortably store your things.
Luckily, there are things you can do to find extra space in your home—no matter how small it may be.
So what, exactly, are those things?
A recent article from realtor.com outlined strategies homeowners can use to add space to a small home, including:
Add loft space.
If your home has high ceilings, you can create additional living space by adding a loft. It’s not the most affordable option to add space, but it will add useable square footage that can be an asset if and when you decide to sell your home.
Create more vertical space.
If your closets and cabinets are at capacity, consider creating additional vertical storage space by building cabinets between stud walls (for example, in the bathroom or entry way) or using the space behind interior doors for slim built-in cabinets.
Scale down your office.
If your home office is taking up a large portion of your usable space, consider taking a more minimal approach to working from home. Swap out your large desk for a smaller option you can stick in the corner—and then repurpose the rest of the room for additional living space. (If you want more separation, consider adding a curtain or folding partition to separate your office space from the rest of the room.)
