Find Your Floor Space to Make Sure You Don't Go Bump in the Night

UK homes are the smallest in Europe. Even though not many European countries have homes that reach American sizes, they're still bigger than the average British home. That means that you don't often have a lot of floor space to work with and you need to do your best to make the most of it. Unless you're used to living in a larger home, this is probably something you think you're quite good at. But anyone can be faced with trying to squeeze their life into a smaller space than they're used to. If you're struggling, there are a few things you can do to free up some space.


Use Furniture You Can Easily Hide Away
If you think about your home, there are probably several things you can think of that you don't need to use all the time. Perhaps you only use your desk for an hour or two every day. You only need a table to eat at for breakfast and dinner most days. One solution you might consider is furniture that you can easily hide or fold away. For example, what about a hinged table that is attached to a wall? When you're not using it, you can fold it up onto the wall, so it's out of the way. Or you might have a nest of tables you can stack together when you're not using them.

Make Everything Vertical
One of the best ways to save floor space is not to use the floor at all. Instead, you can make use of the walls and make some of your interior features vertical. For example, vertical radiators are a great way to save space and efficiently heat a room. They also give any room a contemporary look. You can find them here if you want to explore what options might be available to you. Vertical space is also excellent to use for storage. You can put up shelving and hooks, or even hang things from the ceiling if you want to. Do anything you can to get things off the floor.


Create Multifunctional Spaces
If you don't have that many rooms in your home, you might need some of them to serve more than one purpose. Perhaps you have to have your home office in your living room or bedroom, for example. Creating multifunctional spaces will help you use your floor space as wisely as possible. You can use multifunctional furniture to help you with this, such as sofa beds or any items that have storage hidden inside them.


Pick Smaller Furniture
This may seem like a no-brainer, but smaller furniture will help to leave you more floor space to move around. You might have certain requirements from your furniture like maybe you need a sofa that seats three. But you can still consider the design of that sofa to ensure it's not too bulky and won't take up space you can't afford to lose.

Make sure you won't be trying to squeeze through every room in your home by using the available floor space wisely. A few smart choices can make all the difference.
