As the cost of living rises, we find ourselves in smaller and smaller living spaces. This doesn’t have to be a terrible thing. With a little imagination and some help of a storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO you can still have an amazing home in a small living situation. Check out the tips below to help you through the process.


Designate Your Areas

One of the first tips is to create defined areas of living space. This might seem like a difficult task, but in reality it can be easier than it sounds. Consider using area rugs, for example, to help you transition from a living room to a dining room. The rugs will help you define those areas without the need for bulky dividers or actual walls. You can also use strategically placed furniture to help keep different living areas separate.


Be Flexible

What happens if your space is too small for even the above tip? In these instances, my living room often doubled as the dining room and office. This is especially true in studio apartments or dorm rooms, which are known to be tiny. In order to help make the most of the space you do have, consider investing in furniture that has more than one use.


Make Smart Use of Storage


When you’re living in a small space, you don’t really have the luxury of investing in big, standalone pieces of furniture. Instead, you should be selecting items that have hidden storage in them, and that goes for your couch, your ottoman, or your desk. You need that sleek storage to help keep your space tidy and give the illusion of space.


Think Up

To help you in maximizing your spaces potential you will want to think up. Use as much of the available wall space as possible for storage purposes. Installing shelving or even hooks to hold a variety of object up and off the floor can give you more room to work with.
