One of the most rewarding experiences in life is watching your children grow up. 

As your family grows, often so does the clutter, which usually means your living space gets smaller. Finding more space within the home for your expanding family can be a headache, so in this blog post we share five storage tips to help you along.

1. Declutter

It’s not always about the size of your home, but rather what’s inside your home. Decluttering on a regular basis will make your home feel bigger and open up extra storage space. You need to be ruthless as you decide what’s staying and what’s going. You might be surprised at how making every effort to declutter in the home will create extra space.

2. Organise your space

A growing family in a small space starts and ends with appropriate planning and organisation. Keep your home layout simple and make sure your furniture is best positioned to create freedom of space. Don’t overload area with toys and clothes – once your kids have outgrown things, pass them on or put them into storage for future children. Make sure everything has a place and is packed away after use. 

3. Think vertical

Is your floor space limited? Try going the vertical route by transforming unused spaces, such as walls and overhead areas, into suitable in-house storage areas. This is a great optimisation tool to use as it creates additional space, giving your family a more spacious environment to live in.

4. Purchase multifunctional furniture 

Purchasing furniture that has multiple functions is a great way to optimise your space. For example, nesting tables which can be stacked together when not in use to keep them compact or ottomans which can be used as seats and storage areas.
