If there's one thing that most people would wish for more of in their home, what do you think it would be? There's a pretty good chance that you were able to answer that questions right away: space. The reason that you were probably able to answer that question (aside from the title!) is that it's probably something that you've considered yourself. Space is one of those things that none of us ever seem to have enough of. However, just because you don't feel as though you have enough space doesn't mean that you need to suddenly pack your bags and find somewhere bigger. In reality, it's not all that difficult to make the most of the space that you already have in a few simple ways.

Storage
A creative use of storage is one of the very best ways to make sure that you're able to get the most space possible out of even the smallest home. Whether it's something unusual like floating shelves which allow you to take advantage of the amount of unused vertical space in your house, or perhaps finding a way to keep your shoes organized like this: Shoe Storage Solutions - Shoe Organizers - Tidy Living. No matter what you choose, being able to store things more efficiently can prevent your home from feeling untidy and cramped with very little extra effort on your part.

De-clutter
It's remarkable how much of an impact clutter can have on how large space feels. You can take the biggest room possible and if you fill it with enough junk then it's still going to end up feeling cramped and claustrophobic. Of course, most of us are working with rooms that are quite a bit smaller than that which means the need to de-clutter is even greater. Sure, you might want to hold on to all of the souvenirs that you've collected over the years, but there's a good chance that a lot of it is just junk that you simply don't need to hold onto. It's worth going through your home and being pretty brutal over what stays and what goes.

Rearrange the rooms
Of course, the issue might not be the size of the rooms itself but rather the way in which you're using it. Most of us tend to arrange rooms in rather predictable ways: A TV in the corner of the living room with all the seats pointed straight at it, etc. Of course, that's far from the only way that you can arrange a room. Why not try something different and see if you can help to make the rooms in your home just a little more spacious?

Sure, you might want to find somewhere bigger and more spacious, but remember that moving to a new home can involve a great deal of stress, effort, and expense. If increasing the amount of space that you have is the only thing that matters, then it's often much better to try these simple things which can often solve your problem without costing you anywhere near as much as you would spend moving to somewhere completely new.
