Tips for Creating More Space at Home

In Singapore, extra space is quickly becoming a luxury that not many of us can afford. As such, we often long to have more room for all our additional purchases from special sales such as 6.6, The Great Singapore Sales, Black Friday, and more.

However, we can create additional space at your home with a few simple tips and tricks! To create physical space, you may need to declutter or even make a slight change to the layout of your home.

Here are some tips on how you can create more space at home.

Declutter your mess, reduce your stress

The first step that you can take to create extra space at home is to tidy up your living space. This is important as it allows you to add order and airiness to your home by setting aside everything that is not essential.

On top of that, you should keep clutter from building up. Clutter drains energy and is essentially bad Feng Shui as it clogs the natural flow of energy throughout the room.

The best way to declutter your home is to work on them room-by-room. Be quick and ruthless about what you can lose and what you want to keep. If there is just too much stuff that is precious, you can always opt to bring them over to Extra Space Asia for safekeeping!

Look into the ‘hidden’ areas

Once you have dealt with the visible clutter, it’s time to work on the ‘hidden’ areas that are out of sight. You might ask, why do you need to declutter these areas since it is out of sight?

However, being out of sight does not mean that it is out of mind. Moreover, if these spaces are packed to the brim, you will not have any additional storage space for new purchases!

Start with your fridge. Check on the expiry dates and eliminate any items that have gone bad. Clear empty packets, stray lettuce leaves, and anything that no longer belongs inside. The same goes for your pantry cupboards. Get rid of any expired snacks, and do not keep cracked cups, chipped plates, or stained cutlery.

Recycle or donate unwanted wardrobe

You should also treat your wardrobe the same way. The ideal advice is to recycle or donate any clothes you have not worn in the past year.

Get back on trend by culling outdated shirts and dresses. Once done, you will find yourself with more space to shop for the latest trendy clothes!

If you really want to keep those shirts for future use, why not explore storing them with Extra Space Asia?

Make use of lighting and mirrors

Making effective use of lighting and mirrors can make your room feel a whole lot bigger.

Often, lighting can help lighten up the interior and make it feel bigger than it really is. As such, you should allow as much natural light as possible.

In an enclosed room, use mirrors to reflect the lights all around. The reflective properties of the mirror make it an ideal choice to bring in natural light from the outdoors, giving the same effect as natural light while it tricks the eye to make the room look bigger!
