Tips To Make Room For A New Roommate

Sharing a space is an important decision. However, when your space is designed for one, you might have to reevaluate your storage situation.

Check out these simple solutions for creating more space in your home when it’s time for two lives to come together.

Declutter your living areas

Have too much stuff? The first step to creating more space is parting with items that don’t fit your lifestyle. A huge weight will be lifted off your shoulders once you get rid of that extra clutter. Tidying your home can also be a relaxing activity that you and your new roommate do together.

Choose to donate any belongings to your local shelter.

Choose furniture that doubles as storage

From headboards to ottomans, there are plenty of furniture options that include compartments for extra storage. This type of purchase is a great investment if you don’t want to sacrifice storage for style.

Use organizers in your bedroom closet

Closet organizers and dividers will help reduce any confusion of where you’ve placed your stuff. Removable hooks can be hung inside your closet to store purses, hats, belts or smaller items. Be sure to use labels on your storage containers to organize your belongings.

Install shelving

Optimize space by adding shelving on your wall areas. You can use this opportunity to highlight your favorite books and collectibles while adding personality and charm to the room.

Hang a pegboard in your kitchen to sort pots, pans, and tools. Add small trinkets for decor including a picture frame, small plant, or anything that holds a special place in your heart.

Maximize storage by installing compartments in your kitchen pantry and cabinets. Choose matching jars to store your spices and use a label maker to organize them by name. This will create a clean, cohesive look to your pantry.
