Looking ahead to the new year, it looks as though there will be more time spent at home. While there is the hope of the COVID-19 pandemic being over one day soon as vaccines are becoming available, it is still not over and who knows when it will be. With that in mind, you might want to think about how you can create some more space in your home to make it more comfortable for you and your family. 

Extend What You Can

If you have the money to and the room to do it, then this could be the perfect time to see how extensions could work in your home so that you don’t have to move to get a bigger house, you can simply keep the one you have and make it bigger. If a home extension is out of your price range, you can get creative with how to extend rooms, for example, if you have patio doors then perhaps you could put up a temporary gazebo to create the illusion of more space and a place where people can come and sit and visit in the garden at a safe distance.

Maximize Space In The Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home and it’s not just a place for cooking, but a place where people sit and chat, where the kids do their homework, and the place you may now call your office. The kitchen must be functional and so it’s essential to maximize the space you have in there. Kitchen storage solutions are the best way to do this, so think vertical shelving, drawer organizers, and food storage containers. Make the most of space high up for things you don’t use very often and perhaps instead of chairs at the kitchen table you could have a bench with storage in it.  

Use Clever Storage In The Bathroom

Bathrooms are also places where you need to have lots of things. Today so many bathrooms are small however there are lots of clever storage ideas that you can use to make the most of the space you have. Using baskets on the floor to put your shower gels and shampoos in can look nice and tidy, open shelving can be really useful too and you can get yourself a cheap fabric shoe organizer for things like makeup and hair accessories and hang it on the back of the door.  

Get Rid Of Clutter

One of the best ways to make space in your home is to sort through your things and work out what you need and what you can live without. It’s only natural to accumulate things over time, think about every time you go out shopping and buy something new, you don’t come home and throw something away. Eventually, you end up with a load of clutter and find you have no space. Now is the perfect time to have a big clear out and make space for all the new things you got for Christmas. It’s a new year, so time for a new start.
