Light colors are your best choice when trying to maximize a room’s space. White and beige, along with pastel shades, open up any location. At the same time, light colors also evoke a calming sensation to those who look at it, creating a relaxing atmosphere for your home.

Be creative with storage

For children’s bedrooms, store old toys and clothes under the bed to avoid clutter.
Maximize the space under the bed by buying smaller storage containers.

Storage facilities take a lot of space. Instead of buying boxes and stacking them together, look for possible storage spaces. A great example of this is the space under the bed, where you can store a wide array of items, from old toys to unused clothing, while also keeping unappealing boxes out of sight.

Invest in multipurpose furniture
