Make Some Room

As home prices continue to rise, spaces seem to be shrinking, especially in the newer condos. Don't let the lack of rooms in your condo or in the potential new homes you're viewing discourage you, as sometimes it's not the number of rooms the place has, but rather how you configure them.


One room can magically turn into two rooms with completely different functions, all with the installation of a room divider.

Room dividers come in all forms, from a simple, portable screen or curtains, to a full shelving system that creates both division and storage, to an intricate system camouflaging folding beds and tables.


If you're lucky enough to have high ceilings, take advantage of your vertical real estate to add everything from shelving to a loft bed.

Extra storage areas are often hidden in plain view, including space above your doors, windows and cabinets where you can add shelving. You'll probably even find extra space to add more shelves above the shelf in your closet.

Don't forget to look down too, and take advantage of storage space under beds, for example, using low storage containers on wheels.


While you may be short on floor and cupboard space, you will certainly be able to find ceiling and wall space to hang and store a multitude of items.

From vertical racks with hooks for hanging baskets containing toiletries on your bathroom wall, to a rack hanging down from your kitchen ceiling for your pots and pans, to specially-designed bicycle hooks to both display and store your bike on your wall, there are endless storage ideas available in today's "less is more" environment.
