When you discover the news that you are pregnant, it is possible that you were excited and it was the most beautiful news of your life. But when you start to think about the size of your house or the furniture you will need, you may start to feel overwhelmed because you live in a fairly small house or apartment.
Today’s life makes couples increasingly have to live in smaller houses or flats, because it is not possible to access larger homes because of the price of the same. The standard of living is too high and salaries, on the other hand, seem to be stagnant. For this reason, many families have to settle into smaller flats and raise their children in them.
Living in a small home is already difficult for just one person, so imagine when it comes to a family! However, if you are in a small apartment, you may find advantages that larger houses do not provide. You can make the best of your little house if you have a baby, or more!
You should start thinking differently, don’t think that your house is a rock, think of all the possibilities it can offer you. Think about the things you will need for your baby (only the essentials) and then think about how you can place them in your home. So you can start reorganizing your house in time to adapt it to your life with your baby when it comes into your life. You will be able to maximize the space you have available in each room of your home.
The next step is to get rid of all the excess furniture and begin to recognize things around the house, experimenting with different settings, until you find the best one for the new needs.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SPACE YOU HAVE
All things have spaces that are not used, those spaces will be very important to you. Find places to store things. Use the corners and nooks with pretty storage boxes. For example, keep the blankets in a nice box in the corner instead of storing them in the closet.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF VERTICAL SPACES
When your baby can walk, he will want to touch it and reach for everything. To avoid possible dangers, it is necessary to take advantage of the vertical space. Use vertical storage spaces and put them on your walls to keep everything that should be out of the reach of your baby explorer.
One of the best rabbits is to reuse things. For example, if you have suitcases, you can use them when you are not traveling to store things that you do not use daily. Also if you have a trundle bed, use the bottom of the bed , to save power shoes or other items that may be out of reach.
Babies grow fast and need a lot of things, so it is a good option to trust your instincts and have only what you need. For example, the changing table is not important, you can change your baby on the bed. When your baby stops using some things, such as the baby’s hammock, you can give it away or sell it to get him out of the way.
When shopping for things for your baby, think practical. If you need a crib, it is better to buy one that is evolutionary, this way you will have it at least until your child is 7 or 8 years old. It is better to opt for products that are practical and versatile. Also look for items that are foldable, that you can store easily.
Your small house does not have to be a problem if you know how to take advantage of the spaces and how to take advantage of the items that your baby needs. Above all you should think following the following maxim: ‘less is more’. Sometimes it is not necessary to have more things to be well satisfied with the things you have, it is better to think practical and get good results from the products you have.
