One great way to maximize space in your home is consistent recycling. The process of recycling can be extremely overwhelming if done all at once. There’s a lot that can be recycled in every room, with the right guidance. Room by room, here are our favorite ways to make that extra space through recycle.
Recycling in the bedroom is the easiest to figure out. Start with old linens that no longer serve its purpose. Does your bedding still work or is it starting to feel old and shabby? Recycle or donate
With clothes, the “if you haven’t worn it in 12 months, you don’t need it” approach works best. Donate items that can still be worn and recycle anything that cant be donated.
Accessories and other items such as toys, games and books usually in the bedroom should be considered for recycling if no longer useful
Pay attention to smaller appliances that no longer function properly. Items like blender, coffee machine, hot plate, egg beater are better off recycled than attempting to repair.
If there are utensils you haven’t used in a year, donate. Pots that can not be used, such as pots without lids, can also be recycled.
In addition, to maintain a recycling standard be sure to have recycling bins in your kitchen. An organic bin for plastics, bottles to return for deposit refund and paper.
Recycling in the bathroom is all about creating storage space.
Items like shampoo, pill and medicine containers,body wash and mouthwash bottles should be recycled.
In addition old, unused personal care items such as electric toothbrush and dryers can be recycled.
Other household items, that can surprisingly be recycled include:
CDs, DVDs and gaming discs
Eye glasses, dental toiletries, etc.
Recycling can be a rewarding task; giving you space you need while helping to protect the planet. For items that cannot be donated, recycled and you do want to keep? Consider a secure self storage unit.
You might have de-cluttered, moved furniture around and even utilized a self storage unit but still find it hard to achieve your desired space. There’s a limit to how much space we can create without compromising our convenience. This is where these tips come in.
One easy way to give a “space” feel to your room is making use of furniture, such as arm chairs and sofas, that are raised on legs. Raised furniture allows for easier movement of light into the room. This effectively creates an illusion of having more space.
The use of transparent furniture like glass tables and plastic chairs, is another great way to make your room look spacious. Furniture pieces that are transparent allows you to see the walls and floor, giving the illusion of more space than there actually is. Where as, opaque furniture, completely blocks off space from view, giving your room the illusion of being smaller than it actually is.
When buying curtains, be sure to get sheer curtains that can help elongate your room. Sheer curtains block minimal light, allowing the room to look and feel more open. Avoid the curtains touching the floor, so you utilize all the length and height of the room.
If you are a book lover, floor-to-ceiling bookcase is the best choice for your living space. Floor-to-ceiling bookcases gives an illusion of a higher ceiling. The symmetry and of the bookcase draws the eye upwards systematically, emphasizing the height of your ceiling.
