Do you have a credit card? Great! You can go to a nice furniture store and buy space-saving furniture to make additional space in the rooms. It is easy. However, creating some space in your home without spending money is certainly a tough decision. The latter one definitely represents the lifestyle of genius people. Here are a few things that you can do right now to make a difference.
Declutter Your House
The dusty shelf filled with books is attracting insects. It has also acquired lots of space in your house. Similarly, the pair of jeans and shirts, which do not fit you now, are making your closet messy. Clutter and unused items also attract insects like cockroaches and silverfish. Start by removing the clutter from your house. You will also find many reusable items in the house. You can take them to thrift stores and earn some money to spend it later on useful items. For example, you can sell the unused books and buy extra plates for the house. Keep them in the empty and clean bookshelf.
Evaluate the Space
Every room has eight corners and six walls (including the floor and roof). The objects placed on the walls help you make space on the floors. The objects placed on the floors acquire some space on the floor and some space from the wall.
Consider your room to be empty. Make its drawing on a paper. Now plan to re-organize your furniture in a way that it makes extra space in the room.
Do Major DIY Project
Sometimes, the clutter is not sold at a satisfactory price. Therefore, have a look on the items before selling them. See how you can transform the items into multi-functional objects. For example, you can convert discarded wooden crates into laundry baskets or bookshelves placed on the walls.
Shift Your Bedroom
Did you choose the biggest room in your house for making your bedroom? Most of the people spend their maximum time in the biggest rooms of the house. Therefore, you should always use the biggest room as a living room. Secondly, a bedroom should be used for sleeping purposes only. Many people complete their college assignments and office work in the bed. Some people watch movies and TV shows while lying in the bed, which is unhealthy. Shift your bed to the smallest room of the house. This will make your lifestyle healthier, and provide you extra space in the biggest room of your house.
Reorganize Your Closet
You can hang two shirts in one hanger, or stack three pairs of jeans in one hanger. Not everyone can afford a walk-in closet. However, you can make at least 20% extra space in your closet simply by re-organizing your goods. Add screws on the doors of closet to hang your jewellery. You may sell your jewellery stand in the thrift store. Similarly, put your shoes in paper bags instead of shoeboxes to save space.
Remember that a well-organized and spacious house is more liveable and attractive than a packed and tacky house.
