Having a child takes up a lot of space. Honestly, how can someone so small take up so much space?! There are toys everywhere! They come with so much stuff. If you have more than one child its hard to remember what the house looked like before being covered with lego and nappies.
There are ways to make the most of your space, here are a few little tips and tricks I’ve found helpful.
Mount the TV – we have a toddler who will climb anything he can and he loves mauling the tv so we have mounted it above the fireplace. Saves so much space a TV unit would take up!
Wall shelves – Instead of traditional book shelves we have the mounted shelves from IKEA for my books and Adams comics
Multipurpose furniture – Make seats out of cubed furniture as well as using them for storage!
“Clever storage solutions! In our current home I’ve had to think clever to create more space as there just wasn’t enough for our family. A divan bed and mirrored wardrobes really helped in our bedroom, while a well-known Swedish brand massively helped downstairs!” Https://www.refinedprose.com
“Keep surfaces as clear as possible. Coffee table, side tables, kitchen work tops, it makes rooms look so much bigger.” Https://www.theparentgameblog.co.uk
Get a smaller dining table – it gives you less space to store crap, I’m awful for using the table as a drop off for stuff.
Neutral colours – Even tones in a room can make them seem more spacious
