Keep Utilization of Space in Mind While Remodeling

January 13, 2022

Regardless of the size of your house, you’re likely always looking for more space. It seems to be a law of nature that you end up filling the space you have. If you’re in a small home or apartment, you may find it essential to come up with space-saving tricks.

For those considering remodeling their home, you want to make sure that you’re using that space to its maximum potential. Read on for remodeling tips for small spaces.


This is a room that may give you trouble if you don’t have adequate storage space. Ideally, you’ll have a space that will allow two people to work together cooking, so you want to avoid items that clog up space or get in the way. Buy some baskets or boxes to help organize items, and store them more effectively. If you have a kitchen that’s longer than it is wide, you’ll want to go with vertical storage solutions.

Living room

This is often one of the most used areas in the home—that means choosing the right furniture is essential to create a room that feels welcoming and not cramped. Find multifunctional pieces like ottomans or extendable couches that offer storage. Sleeper sofas are a great option for homes where a guest room isn’t possible.


Homeowners who are remodeling their bedrooms are often looking for more storage space. Adding a walk-in closet can make your bedroom feel much bigger, as you move all that clutter into a designated space. If you’re considering furniture for the room, try taller dressers that won’t take up too much floor space.

Tables with tucked away seating

Many homes have a combined dining and living area—this means that you have to squeeze a dining table into that space. Chairs will inevitably get in the way, creating a tripping hazard that blocks off parts of the room. Choose chairs that will easily tuck away under the dining table to create a bit more room.

Finish a room

Often, homes have areas that are left unfinished, like basements and laundry rooms. During remodeling, you can finish these areas and take full advantage of your home’s square footage. This can provide additional storage or a sanctuary to relax in, depending on what you’re looking for.

Find the right colors

Does your home feel cramped? Warm colors like red, orange and yellow are welcoming but can make the room seem smaller. Instead, choose cool colors such as light blue, green and purple to magnify the room and provide some depth. It’s incredible what changing a room’s color can do to make it feel more open.
