Keeping your home tidy and clutter-free can be challenging, especially with many of us spending a lot more time at home. Regardless of size, it’s easy for the mess to accumulate in any home. But, when it does, space will often become an issue – particularly if you’re also working from home.
The good news is that there are lots of ways to make the most of every inch of your home, without compromising on style. And, if you’re looking for clever space-saving home ideas, you’ve certainly landed in the right place.
Here are our top 10 amazing space-saving ideas for the home.
Sliding drawers within your cabinets
If you’re looking to save space in your kitchen, installing sliding drawers within your cabinets is a great way to create a clever storage system and maximise the available space. Providing space for bottles, spices, utensils, and food, the addition of sliding drawers can help to keep your surfaces clear and create more space for other essentials.
Opt for a corner sofa
If you’re working with a small living space, investing in a corner sofa is a great way to save space while providing a comfy seating area for your family. Remember, crowding a room with too much furniture can cause it to feel a lot smaller than it actually is – so opting for one more spacious sofa, rather than two smaller ones, can really help.
Coffee table with storage
A coffee table not only creates a great focal point in any space, but it is also a great way to integrate extra storage into your home. Coffee tables with shelves or drawers provide the perfect spot to store books, magazines, electrical products and any other everyday items that take up space in your living room.
Blurring the lines between function and form, a console table will enhance any living environment, providing enough space for decorative items as well as everyday essentials such as letters and keys.
Sideboards are a great way to organise items you don’t necessarily want to be on full display in your living space. As well as offering plenty of discreet storage space, sideboards also provide the perfect spot to display decorative items such as lamps, candles and photo frames.
Linen, towels and bedding can take up a lot of space in our homes. It’s amazing how quickly a mountain of towels can take over a storage space! An ottoman will not only provide plenty of hidden storage for your linen, towels, and bedding, but it will also look great in any room and let you put your feet up.
It’s easy for your everyday toiletries, lotions and potions to overwhelm your bathroom. A bathroom organiser will provide clever compartment space for your bathroom essentials including toilet roll, toiletries, towels and much more. So, you can keep your bathroom organised and clutter-free, regardless of its size.
Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, shelves have long been used to optimise floor space and keep different rooms in the home neat and tidy. Providing the ideal space to store away books, plants, decorative items and photo frames, wall shelves are also a great way to add personality to a room.
Built-in Staircase Chest of Drawers
If you haven’t already utilised the space under your stairs, you should definitely consider a built-in staircase chest of drawers. Providing space for shoes, sports equipment, umbrellas and any other items that are cluttering up your hallways, it’s a great way to utilise space that would otherwise be wasted.
Above and below dish baskets
Above and below dish baskets are a great way to save much-needed space in your kitchen cupboards. Allowing you to stack your dishes on top of each other with ease, these baskets ensure no space is wasted.
Have a clear-out
Of course, as well as adopting the space-saving tricks above, it’s also important to ensure you’re only holding on to items you really need. Sorting through your belongings and rehoming or recycling anything you don’t want, need, or use can help free up lots of extra space in your home. And, if your space is severely limited, you could also consider using a storage unit to keep any non-essential items safe, while freeing up space in your home.
