When you need to maximize the space in your home, it’s tempting to think that you’ll have to move—but there are plenty of ways to make room for more stuff without having to move anything. From hanging things on walls instead of shelves and using under-bed storage spaces, there are plenty of ways to add a little extra space utilization into your life without spending a fortune or losing valuable square footage!
Make use of under-bed storage spaces.
The next time you go to clean out your closet or under-bed storage spaces, consider whether there are any boxes or bins that could be moved into the room with them. You may have no idea how many things are hiding in those secret corners of your home–but it’s likely that they’re taking up quite a bit of space!
If there’s enough room, consider storing these items in an under-bed storage space. The most basic way is to use a sturdy box (or plastic storage bin) that fits all of your stuff, then lift up your bed frame and slide it underneath! This way, when you want access again, simply lower down onto its surface again and voila: instant access! Make sure though before doing this that all items will fit inside; otherwise some parts may end up sticking out underneath where others can see them… which isn’t always ideal if privacy matters most here 🙂
Use the space above your kitchen cabinets and hang pots, pans and dishes there.

- Put hooks on the inside of the cabinets, then hang pots and pans from them. You can also hang plates from these hooks if you don’t have room for a rack.
- If you have extra room on top of your cabinets (or if you’re building new ones), consider installing shelves there so that you can store things like cups or bowls that might otherwise take up valuable countertop space in other ways (like by sitting in plastic bags).
Use hooks for hanging things in your bathroom instead of cabinets or drawers.
Hooks are a great way to store towels and other items in your bathroom. They’re easy to use, inexpensive and can be used for many different things.
Hanging up clothes is one example of how you can maximize space by using hooks instead of cabinets or drawers. This will also make it easier for you when getting ready because all of your garments will be visible at once instead of being piled inside a dresser drawer where they can easily get lost in the shuffle!
Remove the doors on your armoire to make room for more clothes and to get an entire closet’s worth of storage out of a single piece of furniture.

Store frequently-used items in baskets or bins on the floor rather than on shelves that take up valuable vertical space.
If you’re like most people, your kitchen cabinets and drawers are packed with stuff. And let’s be honest: it’s a pain in the neck to pull out all those items just to find one thing.
There are two solutions for this problem: either organize your kitchen better or store frequently-used items on the floor instead of in cabinets or drawers (and invest in some baskets). Storing things on shelves takes up vertical space; putting them on the floor frees up that vertical space and makes it easier for you to access what you need quickly and easily.
Take advantage of a wall by mounting shelving units or hooks directly to it rather than storing them on floor.
You can mount shelves directly to the wall with a hammer and nails. You can also use hooks, which are available at hardware stores. Alternatively, you could buy a ladder rack and mount it to your wall in order to create extra storage space for things like coats and umbrellas.
Use vertical space in other ways outside of your closet. Mount a pegboard on an empty wall to store tools and supplies, or hang a ladder rack over a workbench to hold materials and equipment while you work on them.
- Use the wall space in your home.
- Use the floor space in your home.
- Use the ceiling space in your home.
- Use the vertical space in your home.
- Use the horizontal space in your home (and don’t forget about diagonal spaces).
Stack books according to size rather than by subject matter so that they don’t block views through bookcases or shelves; if you want to keep track of titles, use clear plastic covers instead of dust covers so that you can read titles easily from across the room without having to remove covers from each book individually.

There are many ways to add space utilization into your home
There are many ways to add space utilization into your home. Here are some suggestions:
- Use vertical space. Use all of the space that you have, even if it’s just a few inches at a time. You can do this by hanging things on walls or ceilings, such as plants and pictures, instead of keeping them on shelves or tables where they will take up more room than necessary.
- Use the space under your bed! If you have room under your bed and aren’t using it for storage already (like me), consider getting rid of that box spring/mattress combo so there is more room for storage containers underneath there instead! This tip can also help reduce trip hazards if children are running around in the house without shoes on all day long 🙂 They’re less likely to hit their head on something sharp when there isn’t anything else underneath their feet besides carpeting because nobody would ever want something sharp poking out from underneath something soft like foam padding.”
