5 Ways to Save Space in Your Home By Redecorating

Posted on November 20th, 2015 by

If your home is feeling cramped, don’t build an extension or reach for real estate listings just yet. Instead, the design experts at Carpet Mills of America in Carrollton suggest you try out one of these creative ways to save a bit more space through redecorating.

1. Mount Furniture to Walls

For a sleek and modern look, switch your desk or bedside table out for one that’s wall-mounted. This can free up space beneath the desk or table for things like books, files, blankets, or other office or bedtime necessities.

2. Get a Loft Bed

Loft a bed to create storage space beneath it. This is an especially fun hack for a kid’s room. Using a bunk bed frame or other device, create a nook that’s perfect for a desk, a play area, bookshelves, or storage. Add fairy lights and some seating for a fun secret clubhouse feel.

3. Create a Faux Walk-In Closet

Skip fussing with clunky, oversized armoires or dressers and instead use shelving to create a wall-mounted wardrobe area. Wall-mounted shelves or hanging racks are ideal for this purpose. As well as looking chic, this method usually takes up much less space than traditional forms of clothing storage. If showing off your wardrobe isn’t your style, add some curtains to hide your clothes from prying eyes.

4. Use Available Space Beneath Your Bed

Put that space underneath your bed to good use. Using convenient bed-length storage, this can be the perfect place to store items like off-season clothes or other things you don’t necessarily need at the moment, but want to hang on to nonetheless.

5. Add Shelves Above Doorways

If you’re looking around and thinking there’s no possible way you can add storage to your space, there’s probably one place you’ve forgotten: that oft-neglected area right above the door. Mount a shelf above any doorway to get the most out of your home’s storage capacity. This can be especially effective in kitchens and laundry rooms.
