Tiny living is all the rage right now, but Phoenix homeowners often find they lack storage space. Homes are constructed differently in the southwest and are often built without basements that would otherwise offer plenty of additional storage space. Whether you’re living in a truly tiny house or simply feel like you are, there are a lot of options that can maximize your space and help you live beautifully.
Properly placed mirrors are a great way to help capture the light, spread it around the room, and make your space feel larger. We love large mirrors that hang flush with the wall. Consider one with a natural oak frame for an airy look. Remember never to place your mirror directly across from a window. According to principles of Feng Shui, this bounces light right back out the window. Instead, place your mirror on a side wall where it can have maximum impact.
Built-in niches, nooks and tilt-out features can lend function to your tiny room. We often recommend items like folding ironing boards, swivel mirrors, tilt-out hampers, and other concealable accessories to help streamline living spaces without taking up valuable square footage.
Custom organizational systems can be designed to fit into even the most unique spaces. Whether you have a slanted ceiling, an under-stair area that needs some love, or an awkward foyer that needs to accommodate more storage, a custom unit is the solution.
We can’t rave enough about wall beds! Parents love these for their kids’ sleepovers, empty nesters love to repurpose the kids’ old rooms with them, and everyone else just loves the versatility they lend to otherwise usable spaces. There are endless ways to conceal wall beds in your own home, all of which render your new guest suite completely functional – and attractive – during the day.
Use wall beds for:
- Party guests
- Holiday guests
Wall beds can be customized with various lighting options, luggage storage, night tables, or even built-in desks. This is one of our most popular recommendations for homeowners trying to make the most of their small homes, and we often hear that this is one of their favorite home investments!
Use Vertical Space
Draw the eye up with attractive art, simple roman blinds or even a modern lighting fixture. Use wall space to hang floating shelves or stack family photos. This design trick will help create the illusion of a taller ceiling and a larger space.
With these simple tricks, it can be easy to create a more visually appealing space while organizing your belongings and even creating more storage space. Discover solutions for every space in your home today with a completely free in-home consultation.
