If you’re living in a small home or flat, you’ll know the struggle of trying to fit furniture into a limited space. But what if I told you that you could create the illusion of more space simply by utilising your walls? Yes, it's true - by making use of all that great wall space you have, you can free up your floors and create a more open, spacious feeling in your home.
In this blog post, we’ll explore some creative ways to make use of your walls, from suspended TV units to practical hooks and rails.
Living Room: Wall-Suspended TV Unit
Let's start in the living room, the heart of the home. If you’re currently using a TV stand, why not consider the addition of a wall-suspended TV unit? This not only frees up floor space but also gives the room a nice focal point. With the amazing TVs out there that double as artwork, you can really make this a feature of your space. Not only does this give your living room a chic, modern look, but it also makes the space feel more open and airy.
Practical Hooks: Organise Your Home
Consider adding practical hooks around your home, including your hallway or bedroom. Hanging up coats or bags will help organise your home, all while keeping them within easy reach. Install rails in your kitchen and bathroom to help declutter and free up space in your cabinets. Don’t have much wall space left? If you have shelves on your kitchen walls, try installing a rail to the underside of your shelf. Now you can hang up kitchen towels, or with the addition of a few prized mugs, chopping boards or utensils.
Furniture That Attaches to the Wall: Maximising Space
If you’re looking to purchase new storage furniture in the near future, consider items that attach to the wall and don't have feet. For example, side cabinets, media units, and bedside tables. Because you can see the floor, the space will look bigger, and it is much quicker to clean underneath! This is a great way to maximise your space and create a more open, airy feel in your home.
