4 Ways to Make the Most of Limited Storage

Living in small spaces has become increasingly popular over the years, probably because of the increase in cost of living. But in part, it is also popular because of the simplicity. Smaller living arrangements can be really welcoming and comfortable, if done right. However, if it is done wrong it can feel crowded and overwhelming. Here are 4 ways to maximize limited space in your home.


1. Minimize What Takes Up Space

In smaller living spaces, you only have so much square footage to use for furniture and walking. So, unless you want to play a permanent game of “The Floor Is Lava” and climb all over your furniture, you need to minimize what goes on the floor by using things that hang on the wall. A great example of this, is this hanging Coat Rack that features 3 rows of pegs that can be adjusted to different heights. It can hold approximately 12 coats, jackets, scarves, and other assorted outerwear.


2. Choose Your Decorations Carefully

Choosing decorations can feel complicated when decorating a small area. The trick is to make your decorations useful. You could also make your useful things beautiful so they can be decorative as well. For example, plants are a great thing to have in every home because they can boost your mood, reduce stress levels, and improve productivity up to 15%. This beautiful botanic tray is a simple, yet sophisticated to liven up any living space and make it feel more roomy.


3. Make Sure Furniture Has More Than One Use

When you live in a small space, having items that can play double duty is invaluable and should be done as often as possible. If you look at this beautiful wood stool, it is a great height for sitting, at 16.5”, yet, with its flat top it is also perfect for setting plants, or photos on when it isn’t being used as a stool.


4. Be Creative

Creativity is arguably the most important trait to have when living in a small home. This is because you have to be able to find things that fit your needs rather than fitting what the item was intended for. If you look at this fun wooden coat rack that comes with 12 pegs that can be moved around and adjusted, you can see that it would be awesome in a kitchen holding coffee mugs. If you look at some of the other items mentioned above you can see other uses for them as well. The coat rack mentioned first would be great to store shoes; and the botanic tray would be great in the bathroom to hold makeup, and other personal items.

By utilizing these simple suggestions, Teak online, and in-store can help you realize your dream of a minimalistic approach to small space living.
