Elegant Solutions for When Your Home is Losing the Battle For Space

*Collaborative post.

You love your home… but it would be great if there were just a little more of it. Of course, you understand that space comes at a premium, and if you want to be able to live in a highly desirable location like yours, every inch of available space is worth paying for. Still, making the most of your space is tricky when you only have so much to go around. Even a relatively simple decision like buying a new sofa can lead to repeat trips to the shop, measuring, trial, error and rethinking the entire topography of your living room to accommodate your new chaise.

Nonetheless, the importance of empty space in the home cannot be overestimated. It is your most powerful weapon in the battle against clutter and all the negative psychological effects that come with it. If you feel as though your home is losing the battle for space here are some elegant solutions to help you find more…

Get in touch with an architect

While we’ll mostly be looking at making the most of your available space, an architect can literally help you to create more usable space, with elegant solutions like a Side Return Extension. Not only can this add more space, it can also help to increase the amount of natural light coming into your home. This in turn can help your living space look brighter and more spacious.

 

Invest in smarter storage

If your kitchen countertops are piled high with ingredients, groceries and cooking utensils, it can make something as simple as making a plate of beans on toast feel like a chore. Invest in storage solutions that allow you to store more in your available space while also providing quicker and easier access. Whether for your kitchen or your wardrobes, it’s a great way of keeping essential belongings from impinging on your living space. 

 

Make better use of available vertical space

We tend to neglect the space that’s either above or below eye level, but this can also help to improve the availability of walking and living space without contributing to the problem of clutter or diminishing the flow of a room. 

Whether you’re investing in taller bookshelves, displaying more wall art vertically or using more ottomans and footlockers to take advantage of storage space below eye level, there are lots of ways in which you can maximise your vertical space to give you more room in which to live, relax and play. 

 

Rethink the layout of your furniture

And finally… Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to gut your home and clear out all its furniture to make it look and feel more spacious. In fact, furniture can even help it to look more spacious. It’s simply a matter of where and how you display it. Try to hug the walls with furniture, but don’t be afraid to let are wall shine through here and then. Make sure that there is walking space around large items to ensure that they help the room to retain its sense of flow.

Coconut Hair Oils for Hair Growth

*Affiliate link.

I recently started experimenting with Coconut Hair Oils. My hair gets really dry and I have struggled with various hair creams. Many of them don’t do much so I started investing in hair oils instead. Previously, I have tried Almond Oils. I used them for many years but I found them a little too greasy for my hair. My hair is quite dry but not dry enough to get away with using Almond Oils for too long. So I stopped using them and decided to stick to using only Coconut Oil for sometime. I usually mix my hair oils with water in a spray bottle, to allow me spray when needed but I decided to use the oils even more. A few weeks ago, I started moisturising my hair and scalp with some coconut oil, after using the spray bottle and I noticed my hair really started to grow.

The Coconut Oil Hair Growth Experience

I realised my hair needed some extra moisture in addition to the spray bottle and I am so happy to have found what really works for my hair. My hair loves some coconut oil and it really works. The hair oil leaves my hair soft, manageable and healthy. My hair has really grown so quickly in the last few weeks. I will be showing off the length and thickness in my next hair post. It is currently twisted up underneath a scarf and I am too lazy to undo it all and take a photo. Another thing I discovered my hair likes is some natural heat. Once I take a protective style off, I rock my natural hair for sometime to enable my hair recover from the previous style. This allows me also clean and moisturise it for some weeks. When I moisturise with water and some coconut oil, I pop my silk hair scarf on for some hours while working from home. I believe this has also helped in growing my natural hair.
