Ways to Use Extra Space in Your Home
Moving into a new home is always an exciting time. Not only does it symbolize a new beginning and a fresh slate, but it is also a chance to assess your belongings. Determine what you can live without so you can free up valuable space. Before completing your move, you may have opted to give away or sell some items that you no longer needed or could not move and now there is more space in your new home. If you have just moved into your new home and find that there is still some space left to use, our Kissimmee residential movers can help you decide what to do with the extra space in your new home.
How to Put Extra Space in Your Home to Good Use
Our Kissimmee movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage know that as soon as you unload your belongings into your new home, the first thing you will want to do is unpack and start settling in. Part of that process is figuring out where you want things to go. Once you have decided on the perfect place for everything, you may find you actually have extra space. If you are unsure of what to do with that space, we have some ideas!
Using extra space in your new home for storage is a great way to both decorate and free up some shelving space. Whether you have a spare room or a corner of the house you don’t know what to do with, you can always use turn that extra space into a small office complete with a desk, bookshelves, and a filing cabinet. Additionally, you can store seasonal linens and clothing in the extra closet space.
How about turning that extra space into your home gym? Just like a home office, an extra bedroom can easily become a home gym. All you will need is the proper flooring – readily available at major retailers like Walmart – and the equipment for your preferred exercises. You can also create a crafting space or play area for either adults, kids, or both! Who doesn’t love a family game night?! Turn that extra space into a great hangout spot for your kids and their friends. For the ultimate game room, opt for comfy couches and cozy chairs, choose a table that’s big enough for board games and puzzles, and you can’t forget about gaming consoles or a TV. To take your game room to the next level, add a snack bar replete with your kids’ favorite treats and a mini-fridge to keep their beverages ice cold. You can also use this extra space as a craft area with all your colored pencils, paints, scrapbook supplies, or other craft materials organized in bins and jars. If you are interested in home improvement projects, you can also turn a spare room, basement, or garage into your workshop!
