Maximizing Your Small Space: Tips and Tricks
If you have a small space, don’t despair. While you may not be able to make it bigger, there are plenty of ways to make it feel roomier. Here are some tips and tricks for maximizing your small space.
Maximize your vertical space.
- Use the space above your head. If there’s a loft or attic, use it! You can store extra blankets and pillows up there, or even use it as a guest bedroom.
- Maximize under-the-bed storage. The space under the bed is often overlooked because most people don’t think about using it for anything other than storing toys and clothes that are outgrown by children (or adults). But if you have an empty wall where you could hang something large like an artwork or mirror–but don’t want to take up valuable floor space–hang them from the ceiling instead! This also works well in dorm rooms where beds are pushed against walls rather than tucked into corners with no room on either side of them at all.* Maximize under-couch storage: Many couches come with built-in storage areas underneath them; if yours doesn’t have one already built into its frame then consider adding some yourself! Just make sure whatever material you choose matches well with both your couch fabric so nobody notices any gaps between pieces when looking closely enough at both sides simultaneously…
Get rid of furniture that you don’t need or use.
If you are trying to maximize the space in your home, the first thing that you should do is get rid of any furniture that’s not being used. There are several ways to do this:
- Sell it at a thrift store or consignment shop.
- Donate it to charity (such as Goodwill).
- Throw away old items that don’t work anymore or have been broken for years.
- Give unwanted items away to friends or family members who may need them more than you do! You can also post them on freecycle.org if no one else wants them–it’s like Craigslist for free stuff!
Use shelves and hanging storage.
Shelf storage is a great way to maximize space. You can buy pre-made shelves or make your own out of wood and brackets, which will allow you to customize the size and shape of the shelves depending on what you’re storing.
Shelf storage is useful in any room, especially small spaces, as they require less floor space than regular cabinets or cupboards.They also make it easier for you to find what you need when looking through your belongings–and that means less time spent searching through drawers!
If hanging storage isn’t enough for all your clothing needs (or if there’s no room for extra dressers), try using tension rods instead! These hooks are practical for hanging clothes with hangers without taking much additional space. You can easily hang them behind doors or on closet walls as needed.
Make use of built-in storage.
One of the best ways to maximize your small space is by taking advantage of all the built-in storage options available. This can be done in a number of ways, including:
- Built-in cabinets, which are often found in kitchens and bathrooms. These cabinets give you plenty of room for storing dishes, clothes and other items without taking up much floor space or giving off an cluttered look.
- Wall shelves or hanging rods that can be installed on walls with enough clearance (usually at least 9 inches). These can help reduce clutter by keeping things like books, DVDs and magazines organized so they’re easy to find later on when needed.
Use a bed that converts into a couch or seat.
If you have a small space, consider getting a bed that converts into a couch or seat. These types of beds are great because they can be used as either a couch or bed and save you lots of space. They’re also easy to store when not in use and can be used by the whole family!

Put down rugs and area rugs to create seating areas in small spaces.
Rugs are a great way to define seating areas. They can also be used to create spaces that you want to be able to move around in, like a play area or work area. A rug can be placed under a table and chairs, so that there is still room for movement underneath the table while it’s being used as a work surface.
Rugs also help define conversation areas by creating boundaries between different parts of the room. This encourages people who are sitting together on chairs to stay within those boundaries when talking with each other rather than wandering between them randomly (which happens often).
Install a Murphy bed to make room for other items in your small space.
A Murphy bed is a great way to make a small space feel bigger. They can be installed in any room of the house, and they can be used as a sofa, chair or bed. When not in use, the bed folds down behind an attractive cabinet door so that it becomes a piece of furniture.
Murphy beds are easy to install and require no special tools or expertise beyond basic carpentry skills.
Small spaces don’t have to be drab!
- Furniture that is multifunctional. A small space doesn’t have to be drab! Use furniture that can serve multiple purposes and hide storage areas. For example, use chest of drawers for your clothing instead of a dresser or nightstands. This will save you valuable floor space and make the room appear larger than it actually is.
- Hidden storage units are another great way to maximize your small space without sacrificing style or comfort. These units offer a sleek solution for storing items like blankets, pillows and magazines without taking up valuable floor area in the room itself (and they’re often more affordable than freestanding pieces).
- Make use of vertical space by installing shelves above doors or windows–these areas are often overlooked but provide an excellent opportunity for creating additional storage options where none existed previously!
