Millions of people dream of a bigger home. Something with space to breathe, move, and let’s face it - they are easier to tidy. But often you will have to create your own space to achieve that. And, it isn’t always expensive - you can work with your budget and time scales to get the job done. 

So, if you are looking for great ways to create more space in your home, here are some tips for you. 

Loft Conversion

If you have some cash to spend, you can actually just physically create more space. After some careful planning with a loft conversion company, you can have something beautiful made. Of course, this will take some time, but once you have finished, you can have one large space or two smaller spaces added to the top of your house. Of course, what you choose to use them for is up to you, but in general, it is a great way to add value and space to your home. 


Most of us simply have too much stuff in too small a space. We are nesting creatures. We like to fill up our spaces with shiny objects, things that make us happy, and soft furnishings. Not to mention the fact that if you don’t have a brilliant storage solution, then you can find ‘stuff’ piling up around you. It might just be time to make like Marie Kondo and donate or bin the things you just aren’t using. It might not be the easiest of things to do, because we get pretty attached to our stuff, but for most people, once it is done the space that is created is huge. 


If you have darker walls, unless your space is pretty big, it can make the room look very small. It is always better where possible to opt for lighter wall colours. Pastel shades are great if you want to add some colour, and white is usually the winner in all cases. 

If you can’t stand the idea of white, then magnolia and other natural stone shades will be perfect. 

Mirrors are an excellent idea too. They bounce the light around the room and can make the place feel much more extensive. When you place more than one at just the right angle, they can elongate the space with ease. 

Less Is More

While it might be tempting to get a cover unit, and a table, and then some extra bookcases… consider if you really need them - or you are merely filling space up. Floating shelves often provide the ideal solution for lighter items, and you can check out Pinterest for cool bookcase solutions. Think about what is vital in your rooms - for the living room a sitting space and a coffee table, perhaps? What is a must? Then once you figured out the minimum - what do you have that is excess? 

It might even be time to think about if you are potentially a minimalist at heart. Splashes of green plants against white walls - with exactly what you need and no more - might just be the space creating solution you are looking for.
