For some, the single-wide mobile home is feeling a little crowded. And hinging on the number of people that live in your home, why, even a double wide or triple wide mobile home is a bit cramped.
Either way, whatever the case may be, you could always use some extra space in your home. Saving space is an alluring idea, is it not?
Well, you’re in a good place.
Why saving space matters
So before we get to the main topic of today’s article, saving space, let’s take a look at this question: why does saving space matter?
It matters because it can help you keep a tidy home. And it can help you keep a clear mind if everything is neatly stowed away.
Perhaps you’ve heard the old saying, “clear desk space, clear head space.” Having a sense of order and structure in your home can bring mental clarity and quality of contentment.
Additionally, saving space means you can save time. And time is not an expendable commodity. As much as we may not wish to think about it, we’re all limited on time.
What if you could save time by saving space? Taking space-saving measures can lead to saving time. What’s not to love about that?
Save space without losing your sense of class and style
Before you throw up your hands in despair, take a deep breath. You’ll be delighted to find that saving space doesn’t have to send you flying into a fit of defeat. Achieving your space-saving goals with style is not as complicated as it seems. Check out these nifty ideas.
So let’s start with the bedroom. While this may seem like a great idea for the kids, in particular, keep in mind there are plenty of loft bed ideas for adults too.
Having an elevated sleeping space can create more floor space for a computer station underneath the bed or a cozy place for a bean bag and bookshelves.
Foldaways can come in the form of a table or even a bed. Tight on space and wish you had a guest room? That study room of yours can serve a dual purpose if you have a foldaway bed tucked away and ready for use.
Tight on kitchen space? If it’s just you and a special other, a small table works. No need to cramp up space with a big table. Keep a foldaway table handy to whip out when you’re hosting a group of friends.
Don’t let tight quarters get in the way of hosting friends.
Above door shelving
Here’s another idea for you. Install shelving above your doors. You know that wall space between the ceiling and the door’s top trim? Yes, that’s right. You can put it to good use by installing a custom shelf system there. Save space and store blankets or towels there.
An ottoman can serve as a coffee or side table. It can also serve as a footrest. But what we love about an ottoman is that you can store things inside the ottoman. This is perfect for books or kids’ toys. It’s one of our favorite space-saving hacks.
Furniture that serves a dual purpose is always a win in our book.
Another idea is to install floating shelves. Get rid of your bookshelves that take up floor space and get your books up on your walls. This will help create a roomier effect in your home without having to see your books tossed into storage.
Books can make a great conversation piece when friends are over. Why store them away where they can’t be seen?
Floating shelves aren’t just for books. Keep that in mind as you explore your space saving options.

As you make space, you’ll see your aesthetic vibe taking shape. This is fun as your home should reflect your personality.
