How to Free Up Space in Your Home

How to Free Up Space in Your Home

Make your home look and feel twice the size with these easy ways to free up space in your home! You’ll be surprised at what a difference it make’s and how large your home really is!

Have you been feeling space is a bit tight in your home as of late? Is it starting to get difficult to find a place for everything and move through the house without feeling like you are in an obstacle course? If so, it’s probably time to start looking for ways to free up space in your home. This will leave the space feeling bigger, brighter, and just more enjoyable to relax in. Here are some tips you can use as you work to free up space in your home.

Go Through the Cupboards

One of the biggest culprits when it comes to wasted space in a home is our cupboards. There is bound to be items there that you no longer want or need that are just taking up space. Think about it, if you manage to clear space in your cupboards, then it allows for more storage space for all those items that are currently causing clutter in your home.

You will want to start by taking everything out. Once you’ve got an empty cupboard, you can then start to decide what will be going back in. A general rule of thumb that will help you decide what to keep and what to get rid of is the one-year rule. If you haven’t used it or worn it in the past year, then there’s a good chance you won’t miss it.

Tip: Before you do put everything back into the cupboard, it would be a good idea to consider a cupboard organization system. This could include racks, shelves, drawers, and hanging rods. These types of system provide you with a massive amount of storage space in an organized manner.

Invest in Smart Furniture Pieces

Rather than just looking at furniture to serve one purpose, it’s time to start shopping for smart pieces. Today, you can find furniture that is able to multi-task and act as both a place to sit, rest, or place objects and provide storage.

Great examples include ottomans with storage under the top, a bench seat at the front door that offers storage underneath, a bed frame with built-in shelves and drawers, and even storage chests that can double as tables.

Start Using those Nooks in Your Home

Does your home have an odd shaped nook or area that is pretty much just dead-space? There’s no reason it can’t be functional and act as the perfect place for a bookshelf, a small desk or workstation, or even a coat rack and umbrella stand. If you’ve got small kids, this could even be their designated toy corner. You can also make a window nook look bigger by adding flooring to ceiling curtains that make your ceiling look taller, and your windows longer.

Install Shelves on the Wall

For those looking to free up space in their home, shelves can be your very best friend. Think floating shelves that don’t take up any floor space but offer you spots to store items, collections, and even a place for your decor pieces.

What to Do with the Junk?

Now that you’ve gone through the house and reorganized and gathered up a pile of things you no longer want or need, it’s time to get rid of all that junk. Enviro Waste London can help by removing it for you. You won’t have to do any of the work and Enviro Waste will even re-use and recycle items where applicable.

Enjoy the Added Space

By taking these steps to reorganise your home, you will suddenly feel as though you’ve gained all kinds of valuable space. Not only that, you will find it’s much easier to locate items once they have been stored and placed in a more organised and uncluttered manner.

Things to Put on Your Fall Maintenance List

Things to Put on Your Fall Maintenance List

Spruce up your home this fall season with some of our easy tips to make your home more cozy, beautiful and welcoming for the long holiday season to come! Plus learn some simple maintenance tips that will make a huge impact for your home!

Fall is officially here, which means that the leaves are turning, people are gearing up for the holiday season, and it’s time to complete some last minute to do items before the temperature drops and fall turns to winter. Here are some chores you may want to include on your list to keep your home in beautiful condition as we ease into cooler weather.

Look Up

People often forget about their home’s roof, chimney, and gutters because they’re not at eye level. However, keeping these important pieces of your home is vital for its infrastructure and can help prevent water, ice, and other damage to your home. Start by cleaning your gutters of any leaves, twigs, or other debris that may have built up over the summer months. Gutters with a clear pathway allow water to flow freely away from your home, which protects your foundation from water damage. You should also spot check your roof for any cracks, holes, or tears that may be present. If you notice anything, have it repaired right away so winter weather doesn’t make it worse and cause leaks inside your home. If you plan to use your chimney throughout the winter, you may want to have someone come clean it out to keep it clear of debris, which can cause a chimney fire.

Complete Final Lawn Maintenance

Once winter weather arrives, chances are you won’t be doing much lawn maintenance. Making one last lawn care effort should be on everyone’s fall home maintenance list, as it prepares your landscaping for the winter months. Decide what you want to do with your leaves. Some people rake and bag them while others choose to mulch them, which can provide your soil with extra nutrients.

Tip: If you have trees or other plants with special lawn care needs, you may want to wrap them to keep them in good condition during the long winter months. You should also get rid of any weeds or other debris that may have built up in your yard, since they can serve as a home to many unwanted pests seeking shelter during colder months. Put away any yard furniture and lawn equipment so it isn’t exposed to the elements.

Insulate

Having a well-insulated home can not only help keep you and your family warm during cold weather months, but it can also save you money on your monthly utility bills by reducing the amount of energy you need to heat your home. Caulk and use weather stripping around your windows and doors to block out drafts. If you have energy-efficient windows, inspect them to ensure they’re still in good condition and don’t have any gaps. Head up to your attic to inspect your insulation. If you can see the joists in your attic, chances are you don’t have enough insulation and should add more.

Service Your Furnace

Fall is a great time to have your furnace inspected before you turn it on for the winter. Call an HVAC professional and request an inspection and cleaning. Regular servicing can keep your furnace running efficiently and help reduce your monthly heating bill and even help prolong the life of your unit.

Tip: Make sure you have your filters replaced regularly as well to improve airflow, keep energy costs low, and keep your system running efficiently.

Check Your Plumbing

The last thing you want to happen is to have a water line freeze or burst in the middle of winter. Prep your pipes by wrapping them in insulation, which can not only provide peace of mind knowing your plumbing is protected, but can keep your plumbing running efficiently. If you have any hoses outside, detach and drain them so they don’t freeze and cause damage.

Maintaining a thorough fall maintenance checklist can help keep your home in great shape. Most of the tasks take a weekend to complete and can save you a lot of money in the long run in costly repairs.

Know Where to Save and Where to Splurge on Your Bathroom or Kitchen Remodel

Know Where to Save and Where to Splurge on Your Bathroom or Kitchen Remodel

Give your bathroom and kitchen a new remodel for this season with some of these smart ideas and advice from home reno experts!


Photo: Laura Burleson

The bathroom and kitchen are two of the most common rooms when it comes to redecorating a home. As a homeowner, you should know where to spend and where to save while you learn everything you need to remodel your home kitchen and bathroom to make the process a success. Doing so goes a long way in making the most of your investment and your remodel.

Where to Splurge in the Kitchen

In regards to where to invest your money in the kitchen, since you’ll get a lot of use out of your appliances, you’ll want to spend money on energy-efficient designs that come with warranties. While you’re picking out appliances, make sure you think about how much you want to spend on cabinets so you don’t blow your budget on a new fridge that will likely need to be replaced in about 15 years instead of countertops that are likely to last longer.

Speaking of countertops, you should splurge if your counter is the centerpiece of your kitchen remodel. Just make sure you’re fully aware of your countertop options and different materials to get the best buy.

Where to Save in the Kitchen

Cabinet material is definitely one place where you can save in the kitchen. This is because home remodelling technology has advanced to a stage where it’s hard to tell the difference between actual wood and veneer. Drawer inserts are another aspect of your kitchen remodel in which you can scale back on the price. Theres no need to spend more than necessary on the pulls, handles and knobs on your kitchen cabinet doors.

In regards to the backsplash in your kitchen, your priorities are where you can save. For instance, don’t make any changes to the mechanics, plumbing or walls, which adds more to the overall price. You should also stick to your original decision to avoid being stuck with the cost of returning materials.

Where to Splurge in the Bathroom

While you can save on the cabinetry in your kitchen, the same doesn’t necessarily apply in your bathroom. This is because your bathroom experiences more moisture than your kitchen, and you want cabinets that are made to withstand the rigours of that moisture and continue to perform. Plumbing fixtures are another aspect on which you’ll want to make a solid investment. This is because high-quality fixtures can help you save on future water bills, and they’re much likely to last longer.

The floors of your bathroom are likely to be a bit of a middle ground in regards to spending and splurging. To stay balanced, opt for a slip-resistant floor to better avoid slip-and-falls, which can also cost you money on medical bills.

Where to Save in the Bathroom

The background tile of your bathroom is one place where you can save money. If you really want to add a bit of pop to your bathroom tile, you can add a few expensive tiles to your shower or a vanity backsplash. As long as you don’t do an entire wall, your overall expense shouldn’t be too scary. When it comes to bathroom countertops, you want something that’s going to be low maintenance. You can also get a laminate for your countertops that resembles a more expensive material like granite without paying a granite price.

If you don’t take a lot of baths, you may prefer to have a shower installed in your bathroom and remove the tub. That being said, if your home has two bathrooms, you might want to leave the tub in one if you later plan on putting your home on the market. Knowing where to save and where to spend in your bathroom and kitchen remodel better ensures you get what you want without compromise. Know that you don’t have to go broke to have the best design!

Trying to sell your home? If you are tired off all the remodelling and renovations there are companies that will actually buy your home as-is and offer you are great sum upfront. See this link for more info on this subject: https://southerncaliforniahomebuyers.com/sell-your-house-fast/
