With limited homes on the market right now, buyers are having to sacrifice some of the things on their wish-lists to achieve their home ownership goal. Here are some space saving ideas ideas for buyers or even home owners that are starting to outgrow their home
Instead of using floor lamps or table lamps try installing wall sconces.
It will free up some space on your nightstands and make your bedroom look polished and refined.
Now you can use a slim and small nightstand for essentials only!
Installing spacious sliding drawes inside your cabinets will help clear up room on your countertops and maximize the space in your cabinets.
Aside from cooking essentials, spices and maybe a wine collection, try keeping your trashcans and appliances in a cabinet.
This will make the whole room look cleaner and clear up unnecessary clutter in your kitchen and possibly bathrooms.
If your home is lacking a dining room and you have enough space to do it, create an eat in kitchen. A bench or booth style seating fits great in a corner to maximize all of the space in your kitchen.
If you choose something sophisticated it can take a normal eating nook to a quaint formal dining area! Plus if you customize it to the space, it will not look big or bulky. Floating shelves on the wall next to the eating area are a great way to store plates that can double as decor.
Before you commit to building a custom kitchen island or eat-in bar with stools, consider how realistic it is for you space.
In a narrow galley kitchen it may be better to go with a small island or extending the countertops slightly to create a stylish,
functional kitchen without taking up all of the useable space.
While it can be a little more costly, it is a great investment not only for you but future buyers should you ever decide to sell will gravitate to this update filled with character. If you build shelves into the wall, you wont have to take up space on your floor with bulky furniture to store your things. If having one less furniture item makes you feel like you'll have less room to show off your personal style—don't fret. A bold paint color or fun wallpaper will do the trick--- and it takes up exaclty zero square footage.
If you dont think any of these options will work for you and your home, try using a storage unit! This website is a great resource for storage facilities in the DFW area and prices them out for you!
