Maximizing Space Ideas
If you own the house it will open up more avenues than if you are renting your home. Maximizing space in a small house can include design changes to the building itself that will create additional space without adding any square footage. Many types of folding and spinning shelves fall within this category.
However, even if you rent, you might be able to convince your landlord to let you add them. Only do this if you have a good rapport. Even then, the owner can say no for other, unrelated reasons.
Small House / Big Family Ideas
For those organizing a small house for a large family, it is important to provide everyone with some space of their own.
Small houses have SMALL bedrooms – to create more storage space, try the ideas in the pictures. For example, you can put some tall cube-shaped shelving or cases in or near the entryway. Everyone can pick a cubbyhole near their eye level and use it for dropping things off when walking through the door and for things they intend to take back out. Not only can this help with morale, it keeps stuff off of the floors, chairs, tables and other flat surfaces of the home.
Designate specific uses for the extra cubbyholes. For example, you might use one to store anything related to a community service position and another for library returns.
Storage Hacks for Small Homes
One of the most affordable and useful small house storage hacks in the pictures above is to take advantage of hidden spaces. As you see, there are many of the unusual storage opportunities no matter HOW small your home is. These are areas that aren’t the most obvious, but can totally help your storage situation.
For example, under your bed. There are many ways that this area can be used, including to store out-of-season items. For best results, use a vacuum suction device with those Vacuum storage bag thingys.
