How to make efficient use of your space

Small spaces can be a challenge to live in, but there are plenty of ways to make them feel more spacious and comfortable. Here are a few ideas:


The first step to creating space in a small space is to declutter. Get rid of anything you don’t use or need. This will help to free up space and make your home feel less cluttered.

Use light colours

Light colours can make a room feel more spacious and airy. When choosing paint colours, furniture, and décor, opt for light shades that will reflect light and make the room feel bigger.

Use mirrors

Mirrors can help to create the illusion of more space. Hang mirrors in small spaces to make them feel larger and brighter.

Choose multifunctional furniture

Multifunctional furniture can help you to save space and make your home more functional. Look for furniture that can serve multiple purposes, such as a sofa bed or a coffee table with storage.

Get creative with storage

There are many creative ways to store your belongings in a small space. Use baskets, bins, and shelves to organise your belongings and keep your home clutter-free.

Use vertical space

Don’t forget about vertical space! Hang shelves on the walls, use tall bookcases, and stack boxes and baskets on top of each other. This will help you to maximise your storage space and make your home feel more spacious.

Bring in natural light

Natural light can make a small space feel larger and more inviting. Open your windows and let in as much natural light as possible. If you don’t have a lot of natural light, use artificial lighting to brighten up your space. You can even use energy efficient led bulbs with a variable colour temperature to change how a space looks and feels.

Introduce plants to your space

Plants can help to add life and a splash of colour to a small space. They can also help to purify the air and make your home feel more comfortable and warm.

Use rugs

Rugs can help to define spaces and make a small room feel more cozy. Choose rugs that are the right size for your space and that complement your décor.

Hire a building company

If you’re struggling to create space in your small home, consider hiring a building company. A building company can help you to add an extension to your home, remodel your existing space, or build a new home that meets your needs.
