Having a tiny home doesn’t have to mean living in a dingy place. There is a lot you can do to make tiny homes look and feel comfortable. Also, you can either shop on a budget or even spend some time making amazing things all by yourself for your tiny home.
What’s more is that DIY helps you save a lot more money while you get to customize your living space according to your will and wish. Here’s a list of DIY hacks you can try.
1 – Under Bed Shoe Shelf
The space under the bed is a space that most people just let go off. However, for a small space, you can utilize it very efficiently to store all your shoes. All you have to do is collect all the shoe boxes that you get when you buy shoes. Make sure these shoes boxes are the same size, stick them end to end and create a bigger box with various compartments by sticking them together. You can keep adding more boxes with time. Each shoe box can have one pair of footwear and make storing shoes really convenient for you.
2 – Above Sink Shelf
The little space right above the sink in the kitchen can be used to keep dishwashing liquid and various other things. For this, you can make a shelf at your home itself. All you need is scrap pallet wood boards to create a nice shelf. Based on the height of the shelf that you want, cut two wood boards to make the legs of the shelf. Now, cut a wood board to a size that it sits on the legs. Join the parts with nails and there you go!
3 – Cup Organizers
Cups are the cheapest way of storing things. They would have a special place in the makeup storage space, bathroom, and on top of the desk. They can be used to keep various makeup brushes if you are a makeup enthusiast; instead of buying an expensive vanity box. Besides that, you can use a cup to keep brushes in the bathroom and pens on your desk. To make them suit your purpose, you can buy plain white cup and decorate them however you want to.
4 – Mirror Decoration
Mirror decoration is the best way to decorate your home and to give off an illusion that the rooms are bigger than they seem. Mirrors can reflect, which is how they are able to produce an effect of illusion. You can create your own patterns and have three to four smaller mirrors on the wall too. This would accentuate the beauty of your living room or bedroom and make it look spacious as well. Just make sure that the mirror reflects a relatively empty space rather than a space that already has plenty of stuff.
5 – Corner Shelves
Corner shelves are a great idea to make the most out of small spaces and store things too. You can make your own corner shelves by taking wall measurements and nailing wooden slabs to the wall. These can be as big or small as you would want them to be.
