4. To Make Your Space Bigger, Look Up
One of the easiest ways to make your home more comfortable and organized is to simply look up.
Vertical spaces are a notoriously underutilized component of any home space, and a few practical tweaks will elevate a space, both literally and figuratively.
You can implement vertical thinking in almost any space in your home:
- Hang tiered baskets in the kitchen to stack fruit, rather than letting apples and bananas pile up on the counter.
- Add floating shelves in the bathroom to store necessary appliances like blow dryers and razors. More elbow room in the bathroom is always a good thing.
- Prop a ladder in the bedroom to hold any books, clothes, or accessories you want to keep handy. This will keep them from piling up on the bed (and eventually, landing on the floor).
The simple act of putting items higher up allows more breathing room in each area.
As a bonus, this also draws the eye upward, making tiny rooms and nooks appear larger.
