There are many times when a complete home renovation may be unnecessary and/or out of your budget. The situation may just call for strategies that help with the reorganization of your home and maximizing its potential. Let’s discuss 7 incredibly easy ways to make your home more functional.
- Utilizing closet rod brackets
For under $5, you can upgrade your garage shelves to a more functional version by installing closet rod brackets. They come equipped with hooks that allow you to hang tools and other gadgets which might otherwise take up valuable space in your closet or other living space. These are readily available at any hardware store.
- Create more free space.
This is especially handy in bedrooms where space comes at a premium. Make use of storage containers to hold children’s toys, stationery supplies, and other miscellaneous items. If you find that beds are taking too much space, consider upgrading to murphy beds, and bunk beds for the kids. Conserving space in children’s rooms allows it to be double up as a play space so that kids are not left playing tag in the living room!
- Living room upgrades.
Your living room can be upgraded with coffee tables that feature storage space. This will help accentuate the living room with a beautiful piece of furniture that allows you to alleviate space restrictions if you live in an already cramped apartment. This will allow for extra storage of books, or other non-essentials and spare items such as light bulbs, batteries, etc.
- Replace tub with a shower.
Replacing your tub with a shower is a smart move due to its decreased risk of accidental falls, and showers are also more economical as they use less water. Alway make sure you hire a professional plumber for this and don’t try to do it yourself.
- Upgrading Lighting.
The good home interior design is always accentuated by good lighting. To increase the presence of natural light within your home, ensure that your windows are outfitted with clear glass windows.
- Upgrade your closet space.
If you are looking to maximize the space in your home, consider replacing some or all of your bulky shelf storage for some narrow bookcase shelves. This will allow you to use more vertical space in your home, freeing up floor space to give your home a more spacious appearance.
- Add more shower shelves.
You only have one showerhead, you will quickly run out of space after hanging a small number of items. If you face this issue, consider investing in shower shelves that are drilled into the wall, or held up by a plastic anchor.
