Review: Small Space Organizing
Author: Kathryn Bechen
With a few tricks up your sleeve, small can be the new big!
While we may admire the spacious rooms in large homes we see in magazines or on TV, let’s face it: most of us don’t live in rambling estates. Instead, we live in homes, apartments, or condos with small rooms and even smaller closets. But you can enjoy an organized, beauty-filled life no matter what the size of your space. In this practical book, you’ll learn how to
- perform a room-by-room audit of your space to see if it’s functioning at its best
- make the most of existing storage space and find clever ways to add more
- find creative ways to arrange furnishings and accessories that maximize space and bring harmony and style to the home
- live graciously in a small space with others (especially those who aren’t organized!)
Whether you’re an empty nester who’s downsizing, a newlywed setting up your first nest, or someone who just needs some creative new ideas, you’ll love these strategies, tips, and solutions to maximize space and enhance your quality of life.
I think this is one of the best household organizing books ever (not that I’ve read many). Since I’ll be going to college in a few years, I decided to get this book as I probably wont have a lot of room for living space.
Some of the tips are just so simple like:
Using a small fish bowl to store yarn or thread.
Using a bookshelf not just to store books but also to put vases, etc. on them.
Taking doors of a closet and slipping an entertainment center into it.
Just simply things like this. I can’t wait to put it to good use. Any small home owner should get this book.
Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. These are my words 100%.
