It’s hard for small spaces to not feel cluttered. Whether you’re simply in need of a deep spring clean or struggling to find a functional use for the space, getting a little creative can open up new and exciting possibilities! We’re here to help.
Here are our Nesta Storage tips on how to make the most of small spaces.
1. Floating Shelves
One of the best ways to organize a small space is to invest in shelving that doesn’t take up floor space. With floating shelves, you can add a bookcase, additional storage or display your valuables without taking up flooring space. The best part? They can fit almost anywhere!=
2. Small Space Friendly Furniture
There are lots of pieces made specifically for small spaces. These also tend to be multifunctional, such as fold-out desks, daybeds and coffee tables with storage inside, so along with adding space you are also adding a touch of style. Be picky about your furniture in this space. Larger pieces tend to open up the space more than multiple smaller pieces. Think minimalism.
3. Create zones
Often one small space needs to serve a number of different purposes, from working and sleeping to relaxing and eating. Creating zones for each of these actives can often help to make a space feel bigger than it is. This trick is easily achieved by strategically placing furniture, curtains or using different paint to create “rooms”. Having dedicated areas for all of these activities is also a great way to mentally separate work and play. We promise you’ll sleep better if your bed isn’t doubling as your desk!
The oldest trick in the book, but an effective one! Mirrors will always make your space feel larger and lighter. One large, full-length mirror should make a big difference in a small space as well as adding to the decor.
5. Add Height
Another way to make the room feel bigger is to think vertical. Take bookcases and cabinets all the way up to the ceiling to make the room feel higher. This also has the added bonus of giving you back more floor space!
If you’ve decided to take the leap and are in the process of decluttering, you want peace of mind that the items you’re storing will be there when you need them.
