Space Saving: Use Every Inch of Your Home

Not everyone can own a huge home. Sometimes you have to make do with the space you have available. Even when you do have a larger house, you might feel like you don't use it to its full potential. Using every inch of your home to provide some sort of function helps you to ensure that none of it is going to waste. There are several things you can do to make the most of the space you have, whether you live in a smaller-than-average home or you have a lot of space to play around with. Think about the following methods for claiming all of your space.


Get the Right Furniture

When you're low on space, it can be hard to find places to put everything. In particular, you might find that it's hard to find storage space. One way to solve this problem is to choose furniture that has storage inside it. There are a few different types of furniture available that have extra storage. You'll find plenty of beds that have drawers underneath them, or perhaps lift up to reveal storage space. Coffee tables often have a space for storage in the middle too, and some chairs or foot stools can also be used for storage.

Convert the Storage Spaces

Sometimes, you have too much storage space. Attics, basements and garages are often used to store anything you don't want in the rest of your home. However, sometimes you don't need them. If these spaces are going to waste, you could use an attic, garage or basement development company to turn them into living spaces. Usually, they're not set up for living, so you often need to make some adjustments. You might need to put in insulation, damp proof the space, or even install proper electricity or plumbing. It can take some work to make it a liveable space, but you can turn it into whatever you want.

Make Use of Small Spaces

You might have some small spaces you're not sure what to do with. If you have some seemingly dead and unusable spaces, it's almost guaranteed that you can do something with them. Some small alcoves can become reading nooks or hideaways for kids or pets. Other spaces are perfect places to put up some shelves or use as storage space in some way. You can also simply make use of a space by putting a plant or home accessory in it.

Go Vertical

Don't forget to use the vertical space in your home too. You only have so much floor space to make use of, but you also have space on your walls and ceilings. Put up shelves and hooks to use for storage, as well as decoration. You can have photographs and other artwork, and you can even hang plants indoors. The ceiling can be great to use as a storage space to hang things, particularly in the kitchen or in the garage.

Whether your home is big or small, make the most of the space you have. Don't let any of it go to waste if you want your money's worth.

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

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.
