How to maximise space by refurbishing your home

maximise space with house refurbishments

Choose multi-functional furniture

Investing in multi-functional furniture is an excellent method to maximise space. Look for beds with built-in storage, expandable dining tables, and sofas that can transform into beds. These pieces fulfil two tasks without taking up extra space, making them excellent for compact homes.

Use light colours and mirrors

Light colours make spaces appear larger and more spacious. Consider painting the walls and ceilings in pale colours to effectively reflect natural light. Mirrors are another wonderful method since they virtually double the space by reflecting light and the room itself, resulting in a larger sense of openness.

Implement smart storage solutions

Effective storage solutions are critical for optimising space. Tall shelving units can make good use of the vertical space in your rooms, and built-in cabinets that blend into the walls can help you save valuable floor space. Consider using the space beneath the stairs for storage, or perhaps as a tiny office or utility area.

Open up the layout

If possible, consider removing non-structural walls to create an open-plan concept. This can make the living space feel more open and connected. An open floor design makes better use of space and can make entertaining and daily life more enjoyable.

Use natural light

Increasing the amount of natural light can make any room feel larger and more welcoming. If space and regulations allow, expand existing windows or install new ones. Alternatively, make sure that existing windows are not blocked by thick drapes or furniture.

Select appropriate flooring

Flooring consistency throughout various rooms can generate a sense of flow and make the space appear larger. Choose the same style of flooring throughout to visually enlarge the space, especially in open-plan layouts.

Declutter regularly

Keeping your space clutter-free is vital. Regularly assess and discard goods that you no longer require or utilise. A minimalist approach to goods helps keep the area open and airy.
