How much storage is enough?
Can we ever have enough space in our homes? Whether you’re renovating or building a new house, this is the perfect opportunity to think about setting up enough storage space throughout your new home.
Over the years we tend to accumulate lots and lots of stuff; kids’ toys, Christmas decorations, books and electronic gadgets to name a few. No matter how spacious your home is, finding the space to fit all of your belongings can be a tough task.
If you’re struggling to find space in your home, check out three clever storage ideas below:
- Make use of the hidden space
Storing items under the bed or at the top of closets are great way to hide away the clutter and keep your room organised.
Some bed frames come with draws underneath, so you can keep your items tucked away neatly whilst ensuring they’re easy to access.
- Multi-purpose furniture
Whenever possible, pick furniture items with built-in storage space, for example: a bed with a storage drawer underneath, a trunk coffee table, or built-in bench seats.
- Invest in shelving
If you find your house is short of storage, consider installing extra shelving or cupboards to keep your items organised and out of the way.
If you are in the process of choosing a floor plan for your new home, take a look at Smart’s SO BIG range of homes. These home designs were created to give you plenty of storage for the long-term and help you maximise every inch of space on your block.
