Space-saving hacks are what we all want: how to get the max out of minimal room at home. We have to admit – we’re neat freaks. Mainly because we love having space! Physical clutter can fast become overwhelming and become mental clutter. Between furniture, kids’ toys, shoes (hey, we’re only human!), books and kitchen appliances, most people don’t have the luxury of space or storage in their homes. Our co-founder Sally shares some personal space-saving tricks that have been absolute lifesavers for her and her family:


“Buying a whole new cupboard just for an extra bowl or two is hardly savvy spending. Investing in a few shelf racks or floating shelves instead will not only save space, but money too!”     


“Who needs precious cupboard space taken up with annoying little spice jars?! Keep your kitchen tidy by simply sticking food to the wall (just not in the same way the kids do!). Magnetic metal strips are a unique and stylish way to store spice jars, along with any other bits and pieces that otherwise end up scattered everywhere!”     


“Most women would probably agree with me that a one-tier shoe shelf is just not enough… Four tiers sounds a bit more reasonable right, maybe even five?? A multi-tiered shoe rack in your closet, or shelving on the walls for your shoes will leave you wondering what to do with all that space! Plus, it’s a great way to display your favourite shoes and makes dressing in a hurry a breeze! Maybe there’s even room for a few more pairs now…”


“Hybrid furniture – a must-have for any space-deprived apartment. Turn an ordinary chest of drawers into a window seat with a couple of cushions and a throw! I also love to have drawers do double-duty as tables wherever I can.”


“Having more than two tables in your home can sometimes seem like an unnecessary waste of space. Especially if you don’t always use them! We’re obsessed with this idea of nesting tables that slide right over the top of each other. It’s so easy to keep one tucked away and then just whip it out whenever the girls come over for coffee. So simple, but so stylish!” 


“Art feature or storage space? These cute little boxes are that rare blend of modern, chic and practical. Ikea Trones are like little cabinets that take up barely any space because they’re so shallow. Each one of the squares (pictured) pulls out so you can slip all sorts of bits and pieces inside. Whoever thought of these things is seriously clever!” 


“This has got to be one of my favourite space-saving hacks. Vertical wall gardens are the best if you want to add some greenery into your life but don’t have the floor space. They can work either inside or out, so they’re perfect if you live somewhere with a small or non-existent yard. They’re perfect for growing herbs!”
