Bebington Glazing - How to make the most of the space in your home
We all fantasise about our perfect home, whether that be a condo on the beach, a New York penthouse or a countryside mansion. Whatever your preference, there’s something we all have in common when it comes to our ideal place – space. Unfortunately, not all of us can live in a property with high ceilings and huge rooms but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the luxury of more room in our home. We’ve put together a list of our top five tips to make the most of your property.
1) Utilise all the features in your home
Many people struggle to find storage space in their homes and they often overlook the potential of the features that already exist in their property. A fireplace or windowsill, for example, can be used to display a small selection of books, candles or other decorative items. The key is not to over-crowd these features and leave some room to avoid the feeling of clutter.
2) Opt for glass finishes
Glass is the perfect material for giving the illusion that your space is larger than it is. Solid materials block the view of your room, whereas glass changes the feel of a room by making it appear brighter and more spacious – bear this in mind when selecting furniture such as coffee and dining tables. Here at Bebington Glazing, we offer a range of glass products such as balustrades, worktops and splashbacks that can work wonders in making your home feel more airy and open.
3) Maximise your light
Natural light is a fool proof way of making your home feel more spacious so try to make the most of it. We have a wide range of glass doors and walls to choose from here at Bebington Glazing, and our specialist team can easily and efficiently install them into your home in order to let light into your property. You can also hang mirrors and other reflective materials around your home to help give this illusion.
4) Select multi-purpose furniture
You can cut down your visible clutter by making clever furniture choices. For example, there are many beds that come with built in storage where you can hide those unsightly items, and other items like futons and ottomans can also feature innovative storage options. For smaller item storage, you can choose bigger pieces like desks or dressing tables with built-in, handy drawers.
5) Choose light, neutral toned pieces
Light colours such as white, cream and soft greys will help to make your home feel much more airy. This is because light colours tend to reflect light, whereas dark colours work to absorb the light, therefore making a room look smaller. If you want to add some pops of colour, it’s best to do so through soft furnishings like cushions or throws.
