Whether you’re having your first or your fourth child, you might be wondering how you’re going to make space in your home for the new arrival. You may not be able to afford to move into a bigger house, but you will be happy to know that there are ways of making your home appear bigger if you follow the below advice.

Preparation is key

With a baby on the way, it’s important to prepare before it’s time to head to the delivery room, so that your bundle of joy has their own space when they get home from the hospital. Once they arrive, rearranging your home will be the last thing on your mind.

Use your space efficiently

The good news is that at first, little people don’t need a lot of space. Consider repurposing your man cave or home office in order to make better use of the rooms in your home.

If your home or apartment is very small, you could even consider removing the doors from a cupboard and using that as a nursery, with the cot tucked away where clothing would hang. Keep the remaining layout of your home simple. Position your furniture so that it allows for maximum freedom of space.

Declutter 

Declutter while reorganising and get rid of unused items that are taking up unnecessary space – you’ll be surprised how much extra space you will accumulate. A trick to opening up space within the baby’s room is to make use of shelves. Self storage is a great solution to getting rid of clutter that you can’t throw away or donate.
