How To Create More Space In Your Home
There’s nothing quite as fun as having the chance to decorate your own home. From adding new furniture to choosing a style of décor that’s just right, it’s such a popular pastime that it’s become an industry of its own. But more and more modern homeowners are finding that their houses are too cluttered, especially as we move away from the common tradition of keeping generations worth of items. Having a cluttered and messy house isn’t just a serious chore to keep clean, but it can even have a negative impact on your mental well-being.
This is why we’ve put together a list of ways you can use to make your home more open, which means easier cleaning, less clutter, and a more inviting space for your family and friends.
Start With Entryways
The entrance of a house is the first part of your home that guests are going to see, and it can be fairly off-putting to struggle to get into the room when there’s a lot of stuff in the way. It can help to start by moving everything away from the entryway to open as much space as possible, and then carefully deciding what to put back. Instead of having drawers, tables, or cupboards in the way, consider making use of more wall space and hanging up hooks or shelving.
On To The Kitchen
It’s perhaps the room where you and your family spend the most time in, and because it’s where all the cooking takes place, it also tends to be the part of the house that’s gets messier the fastest. Kitchens can quickly become a nightmare to maintain when there’s a lot of different items to contend with. This can include multiple tables, chairs, cupboards, and ornamental items that might be taking up space. A kitchen should be clean, minimal, and functional, and allow for everyone to get around the room without any issues.
Cleaning Up The Bathroom
Another room that gets messy quickly, everyone needs to use the bathroom, but it’s never that much fun to keep clean. Old bottles of shampoo, hair, grime, and even mould are all things that can affect an unmaintained bathroom, and one of the best ways of preventing all this is by adopting a more minimalistic approach to your bathroom. Rather keep only what’s necessary within reach, and the items that are only needed every now and again should sit in a cupboard or drawer for most of the time, keeping everything clean and accessible.
Your bedroom is meant to be a peaceful place where you can escape the business of life, and having a TV can make it that much better to watch shows or follow the FIFA World Cup. This is why so many minimalists focus on keeping their bedrooms as clutter-free as they possibly can. Try and use closet space as efficiently as possible, and even under-bed containers can come in great use if you’re trying to cut down on how much clutter is strewn around.
