In this blog, we will be sharing creative and practical ideas to help you maximise your living space, no matter how small it may be. From clever storage solutions to space-saving furniture, we've got you covered. Whether you are living in a studio apartment or are looking to make the most of a smaller room in your house, our tips and tricks will help you make the most out of your space while still maintaining a stylish and functional home. So, let's get started!
Multi-functional furniture is a game-changer for those struggling with limited space. These innovative pieces serve more than one purpose, maximising the functionality of your living space.
From sofa beds to storage ottomans, multi-functional furniture offers practical solutions for those looking to optimise their home's layout. Say goodbye to cluttered rooms and hello to a more organised and spacious living area with these space-saving solutions.
And why stop there! At Grandad's Shed, we offer made to measure furniture services which maximise those quirky corners and otherwise redundant spaces. The pieces are custom made to fit your specific space, which means they can maximise the use of the available area.
Built-in furniture pieces can add value to your home as they are often considered a higher-end feature. Additionally, they can be a great way to create a cohesive look and feel throughout your home whilst providing additional storage space, which is always a plus.

Utilise vertical space
Maximising vertical space is a great way to save space in your home or office. Consider installing shelves or cabinets that go all the way up to the ceiling. This will allow you to store more items without taking up valuable floor space.
Another option is to use tall furniture pieces such as bookcases or wardrobes to make the most of your vertical space. With a little creativity, you can transform your space into a functional and organised area.
This is where made to measure furniture pieces can really come into their own. Whole walls that would have otherwise been left blank are quickly turned into beautiful and functional space in your room. Take this project where our client can now unpack all of their special treasures to proudly display on their spectacular hand built wall and TV unit. We handmade and installed this piece which now takes centre stage as a stunning feature in their sitting room.

Make use of hidden spaces
Making use of hidden spaces is a great way to save space in your home. Look for areas such as under the bed, inside cabinets, or above doors that can be utilised. Install shelves or hanging organisers to make the most of these spaces.
Additionally, furniture that doubles as storage, such as ottomans or benches with lift-up seats, can also be handy. Take this under-the-stairs built-in cupboard that we created for our client. What was once an unused space hidden under the stairs is now a smart and functional storage space. The side panel opens to create even more storage! By taking advantage of these often overlooked areas, you can create more room in your home without sacrificing style or functionality.
