People always ask me how do we cope as a large family living in a not so large house.
It’s not so bad if you just make the most of the space available and always remember the following tips.
Bed Space not Dead Space
High beds make the most of the wasted space under the bed.
In a small room, a bed should not only be a bed, it should also have other features, such as a wardrobe, drawers, desk, storage and much more.
Only Multi-Tasking Furniture Allowed
You’ve all heard the phrase furniture must be “both useful and beautiful”. In smaller houses furniture has to work even harder, just like this play table, and have more than one function.
Extend in ALL Directions
As children grow older they need more of their own space. This means we will need more bedrooms. We will do this by extending upwards into our attic and putting in VELUX windows and new flooring for a bedroom for us.
I know I will enjoy picking out the VELUX Blinds and new flooring for a tranquil, grown up space in the eaves and the kids will have an extra bedroom on the second floor.
To make more space down stairs we will extend into the garden and create extra living space and maybe even an extra bathroom.
Always think positively and remember that a smaller house means less house work to do!
