Ideas for maximising storage space in the home

One thing that I’ve discovered over the past couple of years is how much space having a little one takes up in our home! It’s not just the obvious things like having a cot and a pushchair, but the endless amount of toys can also cause a bit of headache when trying to keep things nice and tidy!

So I’ve been doing some research to see how ottoman beds, storage cubes and some basic DIY tips can make all the difference in making sure that our home stays neat and functional for everyday living.

Whilst it would be nice if we all had bigger houses that had space for extra arrivals, the reality is that most of us can’t afford to keep moving home. Thankfully by using a few basic ideas like room dividers even the most tight space can become a little more multi-functional.

It’s organising the home into separate zones that’s key to making sure that things stay under control. Having a dedicated kid’s playroom is a great idea as the last thing you’ll want is for the little one to create chaos in your home workspace!

But it’s always clothes that seem to present the biggest challenge for any homeowner who wants to keep thing tidy. It would be nice to have a walk-in wardrobe, but I don’t think that’s a realistic possibility. However, my neighbour has one of these lovely ottoman beds that you can get at retailers like Bedstar and they are really handy as they can be used to store winter jumpers in summer and can provide a space for beach towels in the depths of winter!

Of course, there’s only so much that you can fit into the storage space of an ottoman bed, and that’s why I’ve been checking out some of these fun canvas storage cubes. I love the bright colours that are perfect for a kid’s bedroom, plus they are light enough to be easily moved around depending on your room design.

It’s the multipurpose aspect of many pieces of furniture like ottoman beds that can be a real life-saver for anyone seeking to maximise their living space. Although having a footstool might seem like a little luxury, the ever-helpful House To Home website have shown how a multipurpose footstool can even act as a portable office space!

So with some imagination and some great space saving furniture like ottoman beds, it should be a little easier to gain back some control over your home!
