How to Create More Space in Your Home

(Last Updated On: August 14, 2022)

The problem with some homes is that we have too many valuables to store. We just need to create more space in our homes. But how? Items just pile up in a corner of a room and especially in cabinets. You often come to a point where you cannot find anything anymore.

There are many ideas on how you can make your house look bigger by creating more space in your home. The best way is to do it yourself in order to get the best results. Buying more furniture that will supposedly increase storage space might not fit properly and end up becoming something that will just pile up with the rest of your valuables.

How to Create More Space in Your Home

Pans and pot lids might be hard things to organize that’s why one way to increase storage space and be more organized is to put stick-on hangers on your cabinet doors. Put one pair of hangers near each other, so they can hold the lid and repeat with other lids.

Another creative idea of placing a pegboard on a wall and placing hooks on it. This will give a solution to hang different kinds of utensils. If you have a reasonable storage space between your fridge and wall you can measure this space and create a DIY hidden kitchen cabinet. Learn how to do it step by step by watching the video we have provided you with.

Having too many small items placed in a cabinet can make something you want harder to find. You can organize these by separating them into different jars (store q-tips, cotton balls, hairbands, etc.). On the lid of the jar place a magnet using hot glue and add a magnetic strip on the bottom of the cabinet to place the jars. This will let you store larger items on the cabinets.
