Whether it’s your home office, your bedroom, or just your house in general, you may wish you had more space than you do and just feel like there’s not enough room for all the stuff you have and so it ends up cluttered and messy which just makes you feel even worse.

The good news is, that having a smaller space to work with can actually have its good points and it really isn’t all bad.

In this post we’re going to share with you some of our favorite tips on how to make the most of a small space and what that can actually do to benefit you.

Declutter:

Whether you’re moving into a new, smaller space, or are already in a place with less room than you’d like, then there’s always a good reason to declutter and get rid of any old stuff that you no longer need or want. Having clutter is not only annoying on a practical level since it can make it more difficult to find things, but it’s actually been proven to reduce stress when you declutter and have a clear and tidy environment.

Get good storage:

Good storage solutions will always make your life easier, but when you’re trying to make the most of a small space, then storage is pretty much everything, and is going to be something you’ll absolutely rely on all the time. Whether it’s in-built wall storage, shelves, rauch wardrobes, or even under-bed storage, there are so many amazing and practical solutions out there that can really help you maximize the small space you have whilst keeping everything organized and tidy.

Give everything a place:

When it comes to keeping your small space in order and making the most of it, then one of the best ways to go about doing this is to make sure that everything has its own place. The general rule of thumb should be, if you can’t find a place for it, then it’s probably something that you can live without. This is often the hardest thing for people to do when decluttering, but it makes such a difference when you come to the realization that you actually have far more stuff than you need and once you get rid of them, you’ll see that you weren’t really all that attached to the stuff in the first place.

 

Keep everything tidy:

As with any space, it’s always easier to maintain when everything is kept tidy and organized, but this is especially important when you’re dealing with a smaller space since it will feel cluttered and messy a lot quicker than a larger space would. Even if you’re not used to being a tidy person, it’s a habit you can develop and it also doesn’t take long to maintain a clean and tidy environment with a few minutes each day, so just by taking the time to get into the habit of putting things back where you got them from and washing dishes as you go, you’re going to make your life a lot easier.
