If you are a growing family, you most likely face a daily battle with storage solutions. Your bedroom furniture is overflowing with children’s clothes which no longer fit and an ever increasing amount of toys are consuming your home. It’s an uphill battle to find places to keep everything. That’s without considering your own belongings, too.
Storage or lack thereof, becomes an almighty problem. Perhaps you have reached breaking point, when enough is enough, and you are considering moving into a larger property. This is a drastic decision and is one which comes with sky high stress levels, not to mention huge financial ties. It’s not a decision to take lightly, so you should consider other solutions before jumping in to such a weighty commitment.
So, how can you maximise storage space without moving home?
The good news is that moving house isn’t the only way to combat your storage woes. You can get so much more from your current property! With minor investment, you can utilise and maximise the space you already have.
How, if the space simply isn’t there?
Well, the solution is actually quite simple; fitted bedroom furniture. You have far more space available to use than you think you do. Corners and alcoves, slanted ceilings, doorways, and windows mean that right now, the majority of potential storage space in your house is wasted.
Imagine your bedroom right now and think of the possibilities. There is probably a foot of space either side of your wardrobe that isn’t being used. What about the space above your wardrobe? Again, it most likely isn’t being taken advantage of. There’s likely no use for the space above your bedroom door, or beneath your window. All of this space could be put to better use by implementing unique storage solutions.
Imagine floor to ceiling wardrobes, custom built to fit the exact specifications of your room. You could also have cupboards built in above the door. Perhaps even a cupboard built in beneath the window ledge. With a custom design, you could increase the storage potential of yours and your children’s bedrooms ten-fold, practically overnight.
How is fitted bedroom furniture different to standard furniture?
Sloping ceilings, awkward alcoves and unusual shaped rooms are simply no match for shop bought flat packed wardrobes. Normal furniture is bulk produced in standard dimensions and more often than not, it comes flat packed. Once you’ve assembled it, you have to fit normal furniture into the best space you have available. This leads to a lot of wasted space where furniture with standard dimensions just won’t fit without creating unsightly overhangs.
With fitted sharps bedroom furniture you don’t have to make do with what is available. You can get bespoke furniture designed to suit the shape, size and quirks of your current bedrooms. For example, you can turn that alcove in your son’s room into a walk in wardrobe, fitted with shelves to store all of his toys. Meanwhile, the wall opposite his bed could become a complete set of fitted full height wardrobes ensuring you never run out of space to store his clothes. A padded seat bench beneath the window could open to store his school things. Whatever you need, you can tailor your fitted bedroom furniture design specifically to your requirements.
The same can be said of your own bedroom. With a new walk in wardrobe and a whole new range of cupboards, storage solutions will soon be the last of your worries. At the same time, inject a new luxurious lease of life into your bedroom with a beautiful new design. Then, not only will you have a fully functional storage space, but a space that feels like a true treat to relax in once the kids have gone to bed.
So, before you leap back onto the property ladder consider what you can do to maximise the potential of your current home. With fitted bedroom furniture, you can maximise storage space without moving home, saving you time, stress and money with one simple solution.
