Creating storage space in a small room is usually is a very tedious task and often challenging. For this reason, a good number of factors have to be taken into account before any measures to create more space in the room can be put in place. The truth of the matter is that your room is small and you actually need more space in it. Therefore, what you have to do may not go far beyond rearranging your items or removing some of them. As a matter of fact, there are only a few questions that you have to ask yourself. One of the most important questions to ask is; how much space would you be able to create? Once you have asked this question, the next thing to do is to begin identifying the items in your room that are worth keeping and those that are not. If you want, you can list down all the items in the house to be fully aware of the total number of items that you actually possess. In case this is turns out to be a more tedious task to perform, you can count your items on a weekly basis. In this way, you will be more accurate and your counting will be more convenient.
Identify what is worth keeping and what is not
Now you actually know the total number of items in your small room and if you had tried the method of counting your items on a weekly basis, then you will probably not have any issues with the counting task. After you have managed to take note of the total number of items that you have in the room, you will have to single out a few items that are worth keeping and those that are not. In short, you have to make sure that you classify the items in accordance to their value to you. This task usually requires a strong character and discipline because most people usually end up choosing wrong items. Nonetheless, the items are all yours and the pain of not having to keep the most important ones will be felt by no other person but you. Doing this is always necessary if you have no choice but to get rid of some of the items in order to create more space. It is important to always seek alternatives to the idea of getting rid of some items. This is particularly because in some situations, you may have items that are still too important to be discarded.
Make good use of the upper space
Make use of the upper space as much as possible. In most cases, the upper space is usually much bigger than the space at the bottom because it does not take a lot of items. Therefore, it is usually the best for storage. If there are possibilities of using the upper space as much as you can, then do not hesitate to do so. For example, you can take your time to create shelves and also include a good number of hangers for items that can be hanged. In this way, you will be saving enough space for items that cannot fit into the shelves.
Separate the big items from the small ones
Apart from making use of the upper space, you can take advantage of the fact that it is not proper for the small items to actually coexist with the big items. This is because the combination of the big and small items usually leads to taking up more space than would be taking up if the small and large items were stored independently. For this reason, it is always advisable to keep the small items in storage areas where they actually belong. The aspect of creating shelves that has been indicated above is one of the best ways of taking care of the small items. It is quite easy to store small items in shelves. On the other hand, hanging the small items that can be hanged is also a brilliant idea. The big items can take up the remaining space after the small ones have been put in the shelves.
