A lot of the feeling of comfort comes from feeling comfortable where you live. Simplicity can help free up more space in your home so the home looks and feels more open.

Do you ever think that you have too much stuff and your space feels needlessly cramped? A lot of people feel that way.

But what can you do about it if a bigger home is not in your budget? Well, there are plenty of suggestions on the internet.

Some people might take a look at your space and furniture and think that you simply have too much junk. An easy suggestion would be to just get rid of half of everything. There, that was easy enough.

That may not be the right choice for a lot of people. For example, if someone paid money for certain items or if those things had sentimental value, that may not want to get rid of them.

What can you do to help simplify your home and make more space?

  • Sell or donate items that you don’t really want. This should be easy on some level, because most people can do without a number of things.
  • Find ways to declutter. Closets often have a lot of empty space so be sure to use up more of the area that is currently unoccupied.
  • Review your wardrobe. Are there any shirts, blouses, dresses or pants that have gone out of style? Are there any that you haven’t worn in months or years? It may be time to donate them to a charity.

Shelves are very helpful to a household on the way to the goal of finding more space. Consider obtaining deep shelves that are tall, so you can store a lot of your stuff and open up space elsewhere.

A roomy space in a home doesn’t have to be empty, no not at all. It helps to have large areas of open space.

A lot of people feel that there is good energy in having open areas in a room. It looks and feels good. You don’t have to fill up all of the open spaces.

These are just a few ideas on how to create more space in your home
Consider cleaning out your closets and removing items you don’t use. You will be surprised at how much more empty space is hiding in plain sight.
