Find More Space in Small House

1. Use height for storage: Look to high level shelving, floor to ceiling book cases and wall hung cupboards to maximise the storage space by using that wasted wall space above the eye line.

2. Built in where possible: Using built in cupboards to make the most of awkward shaped rooms can help create space where there was none before. If you have exposed stairs, use that space underneath to create useful toy or shoe storage for the family.

3. Divide and conquer: If you have large bedrooms, you could partition an existing room to create an additional bedroom, study or snug.

4. Use multipurpose furniture: Footstools with built in storage, nesting tables and divan beds are all very useful in the smaller home. Store towels, bedding, DVDs or games in these sneaky spaces to free up cupboard space for other things.

5. Use the attic: Attics are great additional spaces for those things you don’t need very often. Seasonal supplies like Christmas or Halloween decorations are perfect for the loft, and if you like to hold on to boxes for your electrical items, the loft is the perfect place for these too.

6. Make a wet room: If you enjoy a shower more than a bath, consider getting rid of the bath entirely and turning your bathroom into a wet room. This will allow you to make the most of the floor space offered in this room, and will give you the scope to install cupboards, shelves and rails in order to store towels, cosmetics and toiletries.

7. Go outside: Most people’s outside space is wasted, having only a damp old shed for tools and bikes. Consider building an insulated summerhouse which could double as a workshop or office for you and your family.
