As our population grows and space becomes more expensive and smaller, we have to create more clever ways to maximize the space to fit all of our stuff.
Try some of these ShopRTO tips to maximize the space in your home or apartment.
Look at your doorways and windows. If there is some space on the sides and/or on top, you can frame them in to create shelves.
Place your books, knick-knacks, photos, decorative pieces or whatever fancies your taste.
How bout a wall desk mount? You mount a closed in cabinet that when you open the lid from the top, the lid becomes the desk.
Put your laptop or tablet on to check the weather, e-mails, fantasy scores on your way out.
Have some cubby holes on the side to store bills, your keys and what not. Then, you just close the lid and the clutter is closed up and looks simple and clean.
Storage behind doors. You can hang hooks, rods, pockets or any hanging storage device to put towels, linens, toiletries, shoes, etc. Works great on the back of closet doors to increase closet space.
What about a closet office? If you have a wide closet and are good at not accumulating too many clothes or junk, create a hidden office. You open up the doors and there is a table, filing cabinet and a work space.
Keep the doors open while working and shut when not. Sounds kind of Batman-like with a hidden room.
But the easiest is always hooks and shelves. You can place hooks and shelves almost anywhere. It’s all about using the vertical space of your room and sides of open faces of cabinets.
Our world is getting smaller and so is our space. Use these tips to create the most space you can get out of your home. Just another ShopRTO home decorating tip.
