5 Ways to use space in your home

Whether you have lots of space, or hardly any to spare, how you use it can transform a room. Here are some of the ways in which you can utilise the space you have to bring simplicity, uniqueness and style to your home.

1. Let no space go to waste

The awkward space under the stairs doesn't have to be filled with coats and pairs of old shoes. Every space, no matter how small can be turned into something useful and unique. By fitting a desk and a quirky wallpaper under these stairs the space has been transformed into a quiet nook to study. Or, whilst a sloping roof may restrict a room, tuck in a mattress and you can make a cosy and simple bedroom.

2. Storage and Display

Whether you choose to display or hide away, it's a good idea to invest in some storage space. If you like your home un-cluttered and simplistic, choose storage that blends in, like these sleek built in draws under the sofa or the wicker baskets that not only act as storage but compliment the overall feel and design of the room. On the other hand, a beautiful shelf along one wall will allow you to display all your books and knick knacks, as well as adding character and colour to any room.

3. Make something beautiful from 'space takers'

Why not make something beautiful from the everyday things that take up space in your home? This stairway is a necessary fixture, but the design makes it into something beautiful in it's own right.

4. Running out of rooms?

Not enough rooms in you home? Make your own! By simply putting up a pair of curtains, this house has made a study room with no fuss and messy building works. The advantage of this is you can open and close the curtains depending on your needs, making the space work around you and your lifestyle.

5. Be unconventional

At the end of the day, it's your home and you want it to reflect your personality! Don't be afraid to be unconventional and find unique designs for your home to make the most out of the space you've got.
