How To Get More Space Out Of Your Home

Love your new home, but find yourself struggling to make your space work for you?

There are countless ways to get more from your space, and the team here at The Mobile Attic is here to help!

Decorate Strategicallystorage box

When it comes to decorating and adding furniture, there are a few tricks to keep in mind that will help to make your space look bigger. First of all, invest in mirrors. Mirrors can make the inside of the home feel like there is more going on, and if you can get the mirror to capture a scenic landscape outdoors, then that’s even better.

Be careful when adding furniture, as well. The right pieces will enhance your room, but balance is key. A bunch of bulky items won’t do your smaller home any favors, but you don’t want to keep things tiny, either, as this emphasizes the fact that you don’t have much space to work with. Move things around and find what works best for you.

When it comes to your walls, the right paint color, art, and lighting can take you far. You can add a lot of depth and height with certain types of light fixtures, and the right combination of colors can open things up, too. Do your research, and stick with what you love. And, once you’re done, be sure to keep those windows open to show off your look and ensure your home doesn’t feel confined or constricted.

Maximize Storage Space

Finding ways to maximize storage space in your home is easier than you’d think. Benches and ottomans are great for both seating and stashing blankets and other items, and you could utilize the space under your bed for storage, as well. No coat closet? Put hooks on the wall or invest in a coat rack! No room for pots and pans? Make a potholder than you can place on your wall. They’ll be easy to access and out of the way – a win-win!

All in all, there are countless ways to turn unsightly storage into a piece of decor or you could purchase (or make) items that serve multiple functions. Get creative, look for ideas online, and get your home looking great today!

Tips For Keeping Your Move Simple & Cheap

Looking to make your move less stressful and more affordable? We’ve got some great guidelines to help you out. Check them out below, then reach out to our team today. The Mobile Attic is happy to serve you!

Find Free Boxes

Grocery stores, liquor stores, hardware stores, and countless other businesses typically store up boxes pretty quickly, and most are more than willing to give them away at no cost. Buying a box or two from the store won’t put a big dent in your budget, but if you need a lot of them those dollars can add up fast. Why pay for something that you can easily get for free? Ask around, and you should be all set in no time.

Don’t Buy Packing Paper

If you have newspapers, old magazines, junk mail, or even old phone books, all of these things can be torn apart and used to keep your breakable items safer. We also suggest using pillows, sheets, and clothing to provide some extra cushion.

What Can You Sell?

Moving requires you to go through everything, even closets and storage spaces that you stashed stuff in and forgot about years ago. Fortunately, this lends the perfect opportunity for selling items you no longer need, which will lighten your moving load and bring in extra cash. Go through it all – toys, games, electronics, books, clothing, and more – and relieve yourself of any extra baggage.

Try To Save

If you still have time before you pack up the house, do your best to set aside money here and there, so you have some cushion for the weeks surrounding your move. Extra expenses are bound to pop up, and many times people find themselves needing to take off work, as well. A small nest egg can provide you with that peace of mind you need, and you’ll be able to focus all of the attention on your move.

Create An “Open First” Box

It’s not uncommon for homeowners to get to their new house, only to realize they need some essentials. Fill one box with things like toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, eating utensils, basic tools, garbage bags, a shower curtain, and anything else you think you’ll need in the first few hours. This will save you an emergency trip to the store, and it will make everything a lot easier, too!

Make sure this box is marked well, and it might be a good idea to stash it in your car or somewhere easily accessible.

Do Your Research
