Free space and how you’re using it wrong – Best examples of poorly used space

December 2, 2017 7:04 pm

There are many places in which we can deposit things, and most of the times we get away with thinking that we did a fine job of stacking all those items into such a small place. However, you’d be surprised to know just how wrong you might be in this regard. Many people misuse space in a colossal way, and depending on how many of the following mistakes you make, you might actually get a small shock when you find out just how much more effective your space management could be. So before you organize the biggest house clearance London has ever seen for instance, check out this piece as you might not need to sell all that stuff after all, because there’s plenty of room for them.

Misusing the garden shed

By this point you are probably starting to see what we mean by poorly managed space. There’s no doubt about the fact that you might have had big plans for the shed, or that you think you’re doing it justice by turning it into a storage box. However, it can be so much more than that. If you have any hobbies, this is the perfect place to store all your hobby related items like tools, instruments and so on. Sure, the first one that comes to mind is gardening, but why be stuck in formalities. Your garden shed can be the perfect place to keep all your pottery gear, or your carpenter tools.

Not making the most of the cupboard space

One of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking that the cupboard is just a place where you can throw things that you can’t find another place for. Thus, in many cases it becomes this collection of oddities with no other place in the house, but that’s not what it’s for. Cupboards are like file cabinets, but for things like dishes and tableware. It’s a place where you put things that you want to see organized at all times. So therefore you are going to use it a lot better if you take the time to actually sort out items and place them in an order in the cupboard.

Not keeping your desk clean

Your desk is probably the one place that you shouldn’t fill with stuff just because there’s some extra room somewhere in a corner. Your desk serves as your base of operations, regardless of what you are doing, so it’s important to immediately find that one file, document or item that you placed on your desk. But in order to do that, you have to make sure that it isn’t cluttered with all kinds of junk. So you should make it a general rule of thumb to never have more than four item types on your desk at the same time.

Not looking at the attic as the room it is

The attic is not a place where you dump bags of stuff you won’t need until the next season, or where the ghosts haunting your house are playing spin the bottle. This can be a fully fledged room, like a study or a small bedroom where you can enjoy your books or even writing. The first step towards making it a properly assessed space is by giving it a full purpose.
