One of the most boring things to do as an adult is laundry. Come home and it feels like it’s taking over all your rooms. Go one section at a time and bring home laundry bags to segregate laundry from various rooms. You could put all the bedsheets, cushions, napkins in one laundry bag, and your day to day clothes could be dumped in another one. By doing so, you would be able to clear up a lot of space from your seatings, bed, beneath the wash basins and every other imaginable corner of your home.

One of the best ways for creating more space is to opt for furniture that allows you to store in them. Get a storage bed, sofas, ottomans, coffee tables so that you can tuck away all the extras from sight and keep your space neat and expansive. You can get them custom made or simply buy them based on planning your home layout well in advance. Either way, furniture storage will reap spacious returns, pun intended!

Racks and racks full of stuff can make your home feel suffocating and crammed. You can find a way to beat all that by making way for shelves. Use them to put up your planters, books, containers, gadgets and other odds and ends. Shelves are available in varied materials like wood, plastic, macrame - depending upon your aesthetics and the overall theme of your home, you can pick the right size, shape and texture for your shelves. Shelves take away a lot of clutter from the coffee table, side table and countertops and serve almost the same purpose as a bulky cabinet or cupboard, but only more sleek.

When it comes to space optimisation for your home, you have many storage options to rely upon. Before you select a particular storage option idea, make sure to research well, and see how it fits in your home.
