As we change and grow throughout our lives, our collection of belongings tends to expand too. Whether you’re recently married, have or will start a family, or just find yourself picking up a growing number of possessions, you may find that your Austin home lacks the space you need to accommodate all that stuff.
Before you call a local contractor and have another room built or a wall torn down, consider the possibility of more affordable space-saving solutions.
Re-thinking the way you arrange and navigate your furniture and other belongings is a great place to start. De-cluttering and getting rid of items you no longer want or use can not only free up space—donating it can help someone else get a fresh start of their own. Once you have fewer possessions, you’ll be able to approach your space-saving project with a clearer vision and fewer items to rearrange.
Storage doesn’t have to be about plastic containers stuffed into closets, or walls of shelves crammed with junk. Plenty of items exist to help you maximize your living space in style.
Now is the time to think about your lifestyle and how it affects your space. If you spend a lot of time entertaining or have a studio apartment, a Murphy bed might be the perfect solution. Beds that spring out of the wall may seem like something relegated to 50s sitcoms. In reality, today’s Murphy beds are stylish, comfortable and versatile. Many models sport built-in nightstands and headboards lined with shelves for even more storage space in your home, condo or apartment. A Murphy bed will allow a single area in your home to serve multiple functions by providing additional options for organization.
Custom closets may seem like a luxury reserved for the rich or fashion divas with hundreds of pairs of shoes. Fortunately, closet organization systems are available at a more accessible price than you might think. Your bedroom closet isn’t the only space that can benefit from custom configuration—even your pantry can be transformed into a shining example of efficiency at its best.
These space-saving methods and some professional help from a designer will leave you better off in the bank than knocking down walls or adding another room to your home. Give the household efficiency experts at More Space Place in Austin a call and get started on your transformation today.
