When we moved in, it felt like we had loads of space. The attic was almost as big as the living area so all our mess could easily be hidden out of view!
As the years went by, we outgrew the apartment. When we got married our friends and family generously bought us some stunning kitchen equipment, but half of it sat gathering dust in the attic because we had no room for it in the kitchen.
Since then I have been coming up with design ideas to create more space and a beautiful home. Here are some of my ideas that I want to pass on to you.
After years of organising and re-organising homes for clients, I’ve often found that a small space isn’t the real problem.
The main problem is that I (or the client) had too much stuff lying around.
It’s hard to let go of things sometimes because we think, “Well what if I need that someday…?”
But I think if you haven’t used it, read it or referred to it in the last year then it’s time to throw it out or sell it online. This is the only way to create a clam, peaceful uncluttered cottage. If you can push past that mental block of being afraid to throw things away, it is seriously so freeing once you’re done!

Bathroom Storage ideas
If your bathroom is more of a closet than a water closet, fret not. There’s a lot that can be done to enlarge a small bathroom and create plenty of space. Even if you incorporate just two of these ideas, you’ll see a drastic difference.
Sliding drawers are an easy and compact way to use this space that would otherwise go to waste. They also provide a way to hide unsightly items, making them great for storing shoes and coats, washing machines and tumble dryers.
