How To Make The Most Of The Smallest Rooms In Your House


Anyone who has a box room in their home knows that they can easily go unused or become havens for storing all of the items that you haven’t used in the past twelve months. It’s about time that you put all of that stuff in the garage and started to utilize your small but beautifully formed room. Just because of its diminutive stature, doesn’t mean that it can’t be a useful addition to your home. Take a look at these ways to get the most out of the smallest spaces in your property.

Organization Is Key

When you don’t have a lot of space to play with, the room will be less forgiving when it comes to clutter. Just one book removed from a shelf and placed on the window sill can make the space look like a bomb has hit it. Even though space is limited, consider purchasing a piece of furniture that allows you to hide clutter away and keeps the space as ornament and item free as possible.

If you’re considering making your small room into a study, get a desk with plenty of drawers and utilize box files to keep paperwork from seeing the light of day. If a home gym will be gracing your room, grab some funky swimming lockers to store your weights, straps and energy drinks. Think a little outside the box and go quirky for all of your storage needs.

If you’re a big fan of shelving units, ditch the main frame and opt for the floating shelves. By mounting them higher than you would in a larger room, you will be drawing the eye upwards and generating a feeling of space.

Become A Master Of The Art Of Illusion

As with any small area, you want to create the feeling of space even if it isn’t really there. Begin by going back to basics and painting the walls and ceiling a light color. You’ll need to keep the deep burgundy and rich plum hues for your larger rooms. Don’t obstruct windows and put up a mirror to reflect the light around the room.

The best way to get inspired is to visit a showroom and immerse yourself in different interior design pieces and high-quality fixtures and fittings. Some stores like World of Renovation have their own in-house designers to aid you in creating the perfect small space. They’ll arm you with many tricks to emulate the feeling of space and make your room feel bigger.

Think About Materials

If you’re creating a home office, it might pay to purchase a glass or perspex topped desk. This way, even more light can be bounced within the room, and there are less harsh lines to break up the already minimal space. You may want to utilize glass bricks and mirrored surfaces that won’t take up too much visual space.

It can be tough to renovate the smaller rooms of the house and give them a purpose. However, it would be such a shame to leave these smaller areas of your home without any use as this would mean wasted square footage. By thinking more creatively about your space and utilizing these nifty little tricks, you’ll be able to make the most out of your small room.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
