Whether you live in a small property or simply want to embrace the ever-popular minimalist look, you may be looking for interior design options that save space in your home. Start this process by decluttering. This will remove any non-essential and non-sentimental items that you may have accrued over the years. Once everything is as clear as possible, you can start trying out some of these genius design ideas to save further space!
Every home needs some sort of table, and if you take a look at most properties, you’ll find somewhere around the house. Coffee tables, dressing tables, dining tables, writing desks, computer desks… there seems to be some sort of table for every use and occasion. Now, if you have plenty of space in your home, you probably have sufficient room to just have a table left in the middle of the room or against a wall somewhere. But for smaller living spaces, they can just get in the way. There are only so many times that you can hit your knee or shin off a corner before becoming frustrated and consider throwing the whole thing out. Luckily, there are options out there for you. Adjustable tables come in various shapes and sizes and under different names, so do a lot of research before picking one out. Some dining tables can be extended to accommodate more guests should you occasionally find yourself with more guests than usual over to dinner. You can also get “nesting” or “stacking” tables that stack on top of one another when not in use or can be separated when you need extra tabletop space. Then there are tables with wheels that can be moved into cupboards when not in use!
Now, sofas are rather large pieces of furniture, and with many designs, people are left with little choice other than to leave them in the middle of their room, taking up much needed valuable space. So if you’re living in a more humble abode, why not consider investing in corner sofas. These suites are designed to fit snuggly into the corner of your room. While they will still have the same number of seats, they make good use of otherwise disused space and free up the middle of your room, making the overall space feel larger!
Shelves are the perfect storage solution for smaller spaces. They make use of vertical wall space that would otherwise be plain and disused. You can also store near enough everything on them. From books to houseplants, DVDs, photo frames, and small lamps. If you are planning on storing heavier objects on the shelves, make sure that they are properly fitted on a sturdy wall by professional. This will prevent the weight of the items pulling the shelf out of a wall.
As you can see, there are plenty of options out there when it comes to saving space. You just have to be a little more creative with your design ideas!
