  • 14 Space-Saving Ideas for Small Homes (and Growing Families)

When you’re planning on having a larger family but is stuck in a small home, try maximizing your space.

As land spaces get more costly, families with smaller homes are getting more practical by utilizing every space inside and outside their homes.

If you plan to do this at your own tiny space, here are some space-saving ideas that would be perfect for your growing family. This does not only save space it’s for a well-deserved family bonding!

In the Bedroom: Bunk Beds

1. Bunk beds are a terrific idea for small kids.

They can be removable or built in – and don’t up much space at all! In fact, your kids will be clamoring to get to bed at night.

5. Storing stuff in boxes under the bed is so practical, it’s amazing.

Under the bed storage isn’t a new idea – but it is a great place to stash a load of stuff. If you don’t have a fancy bed like this one, consider space bags or the short snap-lock boxes that are designed to wheel straight under the bed. Perfect for the winter or summer wardrobe when items aren’t going to be in use!
