Friday 24 September 2021

Do you like space and light in your home, but don't know how to create more space or save space? Is your home very dark or not very big? Then please read on. In this blog, we will give you some tips on how to create space and light.

Useful furniture

When you make a new purchase, you can create a lot of extra space by thinking about the function of your furniture. Foldable furniture is simply functional when unfolded, but when folded it takes up much less space. Think of a folding bed in a small studio or bedroom. Do you only get the occasional visitor or dinner party? Then get out a couple of folding chairs. They are easy to store when not in use. A folding table or desk takes up no more room when not in use. You don't need an extra room to dry your laundry. Instead of a big, bulky drying rack, you can install an extendable washing line between two walls.
The pull-out bed settee is, of course, an indispensable item in a small home. Other furniture combines functionality with extra storage space. Think of the bed with those handy storage drawers underneath, a chest table or a sofa with drawers. Do you have a good idea about this yourself but don't know exactly how to go about it? You can easily arrange a good carpenter via Zoofy.

The stairs

The often unused space under the stairs is ideal for creating more storage space. Think for example of a shoe cupboard. But you can also create a beautiful staircase cupboard by using a frame, some framework and plasterboarding. Don't feel like it, don't have time for it or are you two left-handed? Simply call in a professional via Zoofy.


To the height

Have you had a good look upstairs in all the rooms in your house? Do you have a room with a sloping roof? Perhaps it's possible to create an attic underneath by placing a floor. Take the bed upstairs, it will create a lot of space. Place a nice shelf high up and along the whole length of a wall to store things, possibly in nice baskets. You can save space by putting your dryer on top of the washing machine instead of next to it.
