Make Efficient Use of Small Spaces

One of the worst things in life is feeling confined and crammed in your own home, but living in a small space doesn’t mean you have to constantly be tripping over your own belongings! Slipping into the habit of cluttering your home is an easy slope to go down especially when your living area is restricted. Reorganizing where your appliances are located and tidying up your belonging will go a long way to help restrict or eliminate clutter. Check out the tips below to maximize your living space and improve your storage which will make you feel more comfortable and happier in your own home!


Laundry Room

Your laundry room is constant havoc with loads of clothing and it’s easy to leave items around and ignore organization. We often view the laundry room as storage and that is why clutter easily accumulates there. Shelving is the most important thing to keep in mind, a tall shelf with bins or baskets is great to keep unwanted items out of the way. Place products away like laundry detergent, dryer sheets and anything else that doesn’t always have to be out in the open. Once you organize these items, you have already eliminated more than half of the clutter problem! Another tip to keep in mind is labeling bins or cabinets so things are not placed in the wrong area, this will maintain clutter. Lastly, this may not apply to everyone but if you are looking into a new set of washer/dryers, consider buying a front load washer and stacking the dryer on top and this will create additional space.



The last place you would ever want to have clutter in your bedroom; it is a place of comfort and relaxation you do not want to feel cramped or overwhelmed. Organizing and maintaining clutter in your bedroom is a lot easier than expected, below are some quick tips about how to organize your bedroom!

  •  Hang up big jackets and sweaters because they are bulky and take up too much room
  •  Store items like beach towels, clothing, and shoes that are out of season in bins and slide them under your bed
  •  Window sills are useful as shelves for books or small items.
  •  A shoe rack either in your closet or hanging from your door optimizes floor space.
  •  Install shelves to place candles, picture frames and little items of that sort
  •  Invest in a storage ottoman
  •  Get a nightstand or small dresser to put your everyday items for easy access on top or in the drawers. 


It is appropriate to say that kitchens are the busiest rooms throughout your household with groceries, appliances, and your kids doing homework on the counter and who knows what else! With a little bit of time and creativity, your kitchen can feel like a relaxing area that you’ve always wanted! Here are some suggestions on how to begin reorganizing your kitchen.

The first thing to do is to organize your refrigerator, throw out old food, organize bins and baskets, and wipe down the inside and outside. It is important to think about food items you actually need and food items that just sit in your refrigerator. This will make it easier for the next time you need to clean out your refrigerator and you won’t have to clean it out as often. The key is to change the way you view your food storage, think about making it as efficient as possible. Start by throwing out food before it expires or make sure you use it before then, and when putting away leftovers, place your food in sealed containers rather than large boxes to minimize the space used. After you have done this make it a goal to keep up this process and monitor what you put in your refrigerator.

Kitchen drawers and cabinets typically always have miscellaneous items where we have no recollection of how they got there. Go through each of your cabinets or drawers and get rid of items you don’t need like, old cookbooks or random gadgets you come across that are useless to you. If you have large enough cupboards or space on your walls, hang pots and pans on hooks so there is more room in your cabinets. Use plastic bins as storage to keep loose items like cans or just random items you don’t always need. Keep these little hints in mind when organizing your kitchen to fulfill a friendly, spacious vibe in your home.


Living in a small space doesn’t have to entail living in clutter and being stressed out or uncomfortable in your own home. Get rid of what you don’t need!! We all hold onto things we believe we may need but end up throwing it away anyways. Think creatively, adapt to these new methods of organization to de-clutter your home. With a few adjustments and dedication to controlling clutter, your home can be inviting and more comfortable for your own living!
