The population in Australian cities is increasing. This makes it even harder to find a suitable space to live in. These days, small homes are all the rage. Inevitably, the answer lies in creating additional small homes with space-saving designs.
You can also adapt to this change and incorporate space-saving designs in your home. Here are some of the best multi-purpose, space-saving designs for every room in your home:
These are the best space-saving doors because you don’t need extra space to open them. You have to slide them sideways. They are not just for closets and your shower’s enclosure. They can serve a lot of purposes in your home, in particular, the main entrance in your living room.
To make a sliding door in your living room even better, use a metal door jamb and of course, a metal sliding door. Doors and door jambs made of metal are durable, fireproof, economical, and eco-friendly.
Don’t have an extra room for your overnight guests? A sofa bed can provide a solution to this problem. Add one or two to your living room.
Alternatively, if you have a spare room that you use as a home office or study room, you can add a sofa bed so that your spare room will also be an extra sleeping area.
These are also great if you frequently have guests at home. You can put one up if you’re out of seating in your main dining table.
A folding table in the kitchen can also be useful. You can use it as a breakfast nook or a work counter where you can prepare ingredients when you’re cooking.
Staircase Cabinets and Drawers
If you have a staircase at home, maximize the space underneath it by installing a cabinet or set of drawers. This will give you extra storage space in your home. You can use it as a space to keep linens or your children’s toys. You can also use it as a coat rack if your stairs are near your front door.
Vertical Nesting Drawers
These are thin racks that can be used to store almost anything that can fit in small spaces between a kitchen appliance and kitchen wall. Vertical nesting drawers can also be used to provide small spaces in your closet or bathroom. You can buy them in home furniture stores, or you can build one for yourself.
Built-in Wall Cabinets
To maximize space in your bedroom, you can have your closet and drawers built in the wall. It’s a lot of work, but once it’s done, you’ll have more room for your other stuff.
Other Space Saving Ideas
In your kitchen cabinets, maximize space by adding hooks where you can hang cups above plates. You can also add a basket inside cabinets to organize their contents.
In your bathroom, you can add a vertical organizer on the wall above the toilet. You can use it to store towels and stock your toiletries. You can also add an overhead cabinet above the bathroom door to add storage space.
There you have it! Apply these space-saving ideas and get to enjoy the extra space in your home.
