_Our homes are getting bigger & yet we still feel like we need more space. Most often we want more space to store all the things we've collected. Seldom do we consider how we could let go of this stuff to free up space in our homes.
There's a place you can turn to for ideas for finding more space in your home. These places have a lot less space than homeowners can imagine living in ... apartments, especially in huge cities like New York City.
A typical one bedroom apartment in NYC has a separate living/dining space, a full or alcove kitchen, a full bathroom & a single bedroom averaging about 750 square feet (costs about $2,700 per month).
This apartment shows one way in which city apartments find more space. Like a bunk bed, they double up vertically. Here they've added a sleeping loft over functional space in another room. _
Where can you find extra space in your home?
- Traditionally homeowners finish attics, basements & garages for more living space ... or less finished, for extra storage.
- Our homes have a lot of hidden space under stairs, inside walls & we're getting more creative about using this space.
- Like this photo, you can & should double up on how you use the space in your home, like turning my dining room into a crafts room because you're not doing these at the same time.
