When Two Becomes Three And Your Home Seems To Shrink!

February 25, 2014

Starting your own little family is honestly one of the most rewarding things that you can ever do. Knowing that you’ve bought life into the world, and they’re the most beautiful human being to you is the best thing. But, one thing you’ll notice as your little family grows, is your house seems to shrink. We’re not talking about a spare bedroom finally being filled, we’re talking about the whole house being taken over by toys, baby clothes, baby changing equipment, and everything else baby related you may be able to think of. As they grow, so does the mess they seem to be able to produce. So to try and make things a little easier for you, here are some room expanding tips that you may like.

Storage Ideas

So, one of the main reasons why it always feels as though there isn’t enough space is because there’s a million and one toys spread across the house, or shoes, or anything else. So, one unique storage idea we’ll think you’ll like means a little furniture purchase as well. You can now get sofas and footstools that lift up to reveal a big space for things to be hidden away. It gets rid of any clutter, without actually having to get rid of the clutter. They’re quickly accessible for play time downstairs, or perhaps emergency nappy time, and they’re really nice. All of the sofas are modern, big, and you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference from the outside. They’re also too hard to open for little children, so once the mess is gone, it’s gone!

Take It Outside

Sometimes the house literally feels like it is overcrowded, so why not consider using the space you’ve got in your backyard. An outhouse, or a summer house, or whatever you like can be built to use at your leisure. There are plenty of companies out there, and plenty of information about the work they do it and how well they do it. Just check out these Armstrong steel building reviews to see what people think and what you could potentially have built. Yes, it might cost a little, but the benefits in the long run will be more than worth it. For example, you could use it as a little play area. Have toys and a ball pit etc. for your little one to spend hours of the day in. When it comes to selling your house, this will have added enough value to hopefully make the money back that you would have spent.

Out With The Old

There’s no in with the new bit of this, because we’re trying to focus on maximising space for now. You’ll already know that you child is going to be growing at an alarming rate. Each month it can feel like you’re replacing clothes or shoes. So when you do, don’t hoard them. Send them to a charity shops along with toys that they’re outgrowing. It is fine to keep a few things for memorabilia, but don’t overdo it.
