Common Areas Of Your Home That Waste The Most Space

Needless to say, we all feel a lot better when there’s a lot of space in our home. It’s never nice feeling cramped and worrying that one day you’re simply going to run out of room and have to upgrade to something bigger.

While this might not be a problem for some people, the thought of selling and buying a new house isn’t fun for others. It’s no secret that buying a home is a very costly procedure, but selling one can also cost a lot of money, and there’s no guarantee you’ll get a great price for your property. As such, we want to ensure we get the most out of our house and don’t fall victim to a lack of space.

To do this, you should focus on the areas of your home that waste the most space. That’s right, certain parts of your property could be better utilized, but are currently wasting so much valuable space for you and your family. Today, we’ll look at these areas and show you how you can fully utilize the space available to you.


Most houses have an attic, and most families don’t make as much out of theirs as they should. As a result, it becomes one of the chief space-wasting culprits in your home. The main reason is that there are many ways in which an attic can waste space. Primarily, people have one but don’t make use of all the space up there. They might chuck a few storage boxes in there and leave it at that. While using your attic for storage isn’t a bad idea, you have to make sure every inch is used properly. Organize all the boxes so you can fit more things in and really de-clutter your home. Take up as much space as possible, so you feel that your attic is serving a proper purpose instead of housing one or two boxes.

The other way attics waste space is when they’re not properly boarded up. This means there are no proper floorboards up there to allow you to store stuff or make use of the space. So, you end up with space at the top of your house that can’t be used. Thankfully, you can get your attic boarded down and transform it into a better area. As you can see in the images of these attic conversion ideas, a lot of people turn their’s into a bedroom, which is a great idea.


The basement is another classic example of somewhere in your home that wastes loads of space. There are so many people that neglect their basement or use it for very pointless things. It’s popular to stick your washer and dryer in the basement and make it into a sort of laundry room. While this will utilize it in some way, it doesn’t properly use all the space.

A washer/dryer doesn’t take up a lot of room, and you have so much more space to play with. Plus, you may find that you have room for a washer in your kitchen or elsewhere in your home. Either way, most people end up with a basement that’s hardly used and taking up a lot of wasted space. But, as you can see in the pictures of these basement renovations from Mayfield Renovations, it’s possible to turn yours into a fully functional room. It can be renovated and converted into extra living space which means your family has an extra room to use in the house. There’s no end to what you can convert a basement into. One thing’s for certain, it will finally help this area of your home stop wasting space.


Finally, we have your garage, which can be fairly large and waste so much space. The problem is that garages are meant for cars, but some of us don’t bother storing ours there as it’s more convenient to use the driveway. So, we end up with a fairly large space that doesn’t get used for anything.

Again, like the basement, there are often small things placed here like a washing machine, but the garage itself serves little to no purpose at all. Instead of wasting all this space you should make more use out of it. It can become an organized storage area, a place to keep all your garden tools, or even converted into a home gym.

I picked these three areas as they’re the main culprits with regards to wasting space in your home. Not only that, but the chances are you’ll have at least one of these things in your home if not all three! So, use the advice and start making the most of the space you’ve got.
