Living in a terrace home can have its challenges, particularly if you're short on space. However, with the right design techniques and storage solutions under your belt, it’s never too late to make the most of your home and create a comfortable living space.
In this article, we'll explore top tips on how to maximise space in your terrace home.
How to maximise space in a terrace home
There’s no reason you should limit yourself when designing your terrace home space. At Bespoke Renovations, our terrace renovation specialists understand better than anyone how hard it can be to fit in all your favourite interior pieces without overcrowding your home. We have tricks up our sleeve on how to maximise your terrace home space:
Declutter and organise
First things first — before you even think about investing in new furniture, you must declutter and organise to maximise your terrace home space. Take stock of what you have and decide what you need. Be ruthless in decluttering and get rid of anything you no longer use or need.
Once you've narrowed down your belongings, organise them in a way that makes sense for your space. Label storage containers to keep all your items neat and tidy and stored safely away. This will keep you from tripping over loose items while you reorganise your home.
Onwards and upwards — embrace vertical space
Since terrace homes can be narrow, using your vertical space is essential.
By installing vertical shelves, bookcases or cabinets, you will have ample storage space for all your books, indoor plants and decor and add some personality to your home. Use hooks or hanging storage to make further use of vertical wall space.
Opt for multi-functional furniture
Every piece of furniture counts when you're short on space in your terrace home. Choose multi-functional furniture that serves more than one purpose. For example, a sofa bed for your guests or a coffee table with storage space will make for extra storage pockets for board games or any paperwork.
Out of sight, out of mind — utilise hidden storage
Look for furniture with built-in storage or invest in storage ottomans or benches. You can use under-bed storage boxes or vacuum-seal storage bags to maximise your terrace home space. Not to mention, a storage bench in your entryway is perfect for storing shoes and other small items.
Alternatively, you can utilise exposed leg furniture, which will give the room a more open, airy look and feel and reduce clutter.
Consider built-in storage
Consider built-in storage solutions if you're planning a home renovation or remodelling project. Built-in shelves or cabinets will utilise existing space and help keep your home stylish, pristine and organised. Built-in bookshelves in your living room can provide extra storage and display space, while a built-in wardrobe in your bedroom will keep your clothing organised.
Create illusions of space
Get creative with your terrace home space to create the illusion of a spacious home interior. Use light paint colours on your walls and ceilings, hang mirrors to reflect light and utilise curtains or blinds that match your wall colours for a monochrome, seamless look that makes the room feel larger.
