Making the Most of Your Small Condo


Just because your condo is small, it doesn’t have to be inconvenient. In fact, with some simple changes and tips, your small condo may not seem so small at all. Making the most of your small condo isn’t as difficult as you might think. It just requires some rearranging, re-purposing, and “higher” thinking. In no time at all, you could be living more comfortably, with much more room to move around.

Break Up Rooms Into Sections
According to GulfLand Structures, whether your small condo has one room, two, or three, you can make the most of the space by breaking up the rooms you have. Dividers are one common way to separate areas. You might also forgo this extra furniture and break up the areas with purpose. For instance, the study area could be a corner that would consist of your desk and other appropriate items. Another area might be an eating or dining area, and so on. Some might break up the areas by placing more seating in between them, such as a long footstool, ottoman, or bench. This provides extra seating while separating the areas accordingly.
Utilize Elevation
If you need extra shelving, but don’t have the space for it, consider wall shelves. Installing them up high can help keep that floor space available for other purposes. You can also use the ceiling to hang bicycles, plants, and other items. This allows you to store many more items. If your condo has an attic, remember that space can be used as well. Even if it’s small, you can always build shelving into certain areas of the rafters to create more space.
Hideaway Items Are Your Friend
There are many options available for hideaway seating, sleeping, and storage. Consider furniture that has more than one purpose. For instance, you might purchase a sleeper sofa so that you can hide your bed away when you have company. Another way to do this is to install a wall bed that also serves as storage when folded. These are readily available at many furniture stores. Other options include seating that includes storage underneath or inside.
Consider Working and Dining Alternatives
According to GulfLand Structures (click here), if your space is too small for a large table, consider alternative eating areas. Some may opt to buy fold-out trays that can be hidden away in a closet or corner when not in use. Others may decide to eat at the work table or desk. Similarly, if there isn’t room for a desk, fold-out dining trays might be suitable for both eating and working if you’re using a laptop computer. Supplies can be kept inside the coffee table, an end table, or within other easily-accessible storage areas.
Limit Spending
This can be very beneficial for your budget, as well as for your living space. If you limit how much you spend, you won’t have to keep finding extra space for new things. Living minimally also might be good for your health, in addition to keeping your space de-cluttered. If you already have a large amount of personal belongings, the above advice should help you get it under control so that you can live comfortably and functionally.
