Top Tips for Saving Space at Home


It’s important to make the most of the space you have. Luckily, we’re experts in storage at Incredible Bulk in Bradford and have years of experience providing personal storage units for your belongings and household possessions. We’ve also put together some top tips for saving space at home and ensuring your living space is clutter-free! 

Use a chest as a coffee table 

Using a chest, trunk or ottoman with storage as a coffee table can be an effective way to save space in your living room. The top can be used as a coffee table, somewhere to pop the TV remote, your most recent book and some drink coasters while inside can be used to store toys,DVDs, blankets and more. Using a coffee table with drawers and wicker hampers as a side table can also help to reduce clutter in your home. 

Put shelves up above doorways

Putting shelves above or around internal doorways in your home will help to make the most of space that would otherwise be unused. It can also be a stylish way to present some of your favourite books, ornaments or photographs without making the room feel cluttered. Lining your room with high-shelving or placing low bookcases below windows can also improve storage and create extra space in your home.  

Create window seats with storage 

Creating a window seat can also help to make an additional seating area in your home and a place to relax and enjoy the view of your garden. Choosing a window seat with lids means you can also benefit from some extra storage space in your home. 

Let the light in 

Allowing natural light can be a great way to make a room feel more spacious. Try to arrange your furniture so that it does not block the view of windows and doors in your home as the further you can see into a space, the bigger it will seem. If your room has darker areas and shadows that can make it feel like a tighter space, then consider installing some additional light fixtures. 

Don’t Cross your wires 

Your phone charger and electronics cables can often tangle and make a space look cluttered. Using cable clips can help you avoid getting your wires crossed and will make a space look neater. For a cheap hack, attach binder clips to the end of your desk or table to organise your cables. 

Throw it under the bed 

It may seem obvious, but if you’re looking to save space in the bedroom then a bed with storage underneath is one of your best options. It’s the perfect place to keep clothes, files, extra bed sheets and collections.
