From cramped basements to steeply angled attic roofs, it can be difficult to make use of awkward spaces in your home. For these parts of your home, a custom solution might be needed! The More Space Place team is here to help. Keep reading to discover a few of our favorite tips and tricks for making use of awkward spaces in your home.

A Functional Under-Stairway Closet

Stairways often come equipped with unusual or awkward spaces underneath. We can help you transform this empty space or unusable closet into a functional and stylish storage space! Under-stair storage, when done correctly, can become the perfect storage space for coats, luggage, sports equipment, or anything else you need to hide away and store securely. 

Angled Attic Shelving

Steeply angled attic rooms can make it difficult to utilize your attic for anything practical. Pre-made storage systems might not even fit within the angles of your attic. Consider custom-built shelving that’s designed to fit with an angled roof, allowing you to use your attic more effectively. 

Custom Utility Room Upgrades

Utility and laundry rooms are known for being awkward spaces to navigate. With both huge appliances and storage being necessary, these rooms can quickly start to feel cluttered. We have a variety of solutions for you! Consider the following:

  • Overhead storage. When you’re limited on floorspace, go up! We can build and install overhead storage to above your washer and dryer or along the walls of your utility room. This is a great option for lesser-used storage items.
  • Custom washer and dryer inserts. These can be used to neatly conceal your appliances, giving your laundry room a neater look. Better yet, they also provide above-appliance deskspace for storing and folding clothes.
  • Fold-out laundry hamper or ironing boards. Compact, easy to store, and perfect for small spaces, these fold-out inserts will provide your laundry room with added functionality while also giving you a clutter-free space!

Built-Ins For An Open Floor Plan

An open-layout floor plan can be both a blessing and a curse. It can be difficult to define spaces in an open floor plan, and storage systems can often feel out of place when placed in the middle of a space. Built-in furniture could be the perfect solution! They provide custom storage and can be used to define spaces without cutting them off from each other.

If your home doesn’t have a spacious laundry room, we can help! With smart storage solutions and custom designs, our team can make a cramped room feel just right. Keep reading to discover some design ideas & custom storage options for smaller laundry rooms.

Choose a Light Color Scheme

A smart design trick for making small rooms feel larger is selecting a light color scheme. Light colors create a bright, airy mood, improve visibility, and reflect light better. White wallpaper and white cabinetry will help your laundry room feel more open and less cramped.

Install Cabinets Above Your Washer & Dryer

If you lack available floor space, go up! We can install custom-built cabinets above your washer and dryer. These shelves provide additional storage for laundry room necessities and other supplies. If you have a stacked washer and dryer in your laundry room, no problem! Narrow cabinetry built alongside your appliances will also provide storage while saving floor space.

Think About Alternate Appliance Layouts

Thinking carefully about the way you’ve organized your washer and dryer can help you rethink your space in creative ways. For example, if you’ve always stacked your appliances, consider arranging them side-by-side. While this will take up more floor space, it also provides you with additional room for folding clothes. 

Use a Slatwall System

Make full use of every part of your laundry room – even the walls – with a slatwall system! This can be installed on any wall and offers extra storage without taking up any space. Perfect for keeping track of miscellaneous tools, items, and more.

Try a Fold-Out Ironing Board

A fold-out ironing board is a great addition to any laundry room. This ironing board can be built into your laundry room as part of an accompanying storage system or independently. It folds up and out of the way when not in use, and can easily be folded down when needed. Instead of a larder and unwieldy traditional ironing board, this laundry room insert is compact and convenient. 

Install Built-In Clothing Racks

Finding space to hang clothes in a small laundry room can be frustrating! Without adequate room, clothes can also take too long to dry. One simple solution is to install built-in clothing racks within your laundry room. These racks can be placed near the ceiling and mounted on walls or cabinets. They take up less space than a rolling clothing rack while also integrating seamlessly into the room.
