Most people want to maximise their cupboard space, but it can be hard to do this if you only have a small room. Whether you want to redo the cupboards in your bedroom, kitchen, or office, you always need to keep your available space in mind, so that the cupboards don’t take up too much space and leave the room feeling cramped.

Luckily, there are many ways that you can make your cupboards work for you, even if you have limited space, and this post will be walking you through a few of them.

Opt for a lighter colour

While a lighter colour scheme won’t actually have an effect on how much space your cupboards use up, lighter colours create the illusion of a bigger room, whereas darker colours tend to make a room feel smaller.

Therefore, if you are working in a small area, you should consider choosing a lighter option when designing your built-in cupboards.

Utilise the inside of your cupboards

There are many ways for you to effectively use your cupboards, but the best way of doing this is to pay close attention to how the inside of the cupboard is laid out.

For example, if you are designing a cupboard for your wardrobe, adding a clothes rail is a good start. However, if you stop there, you will be wasting a lot of space at the bottom of your cupboard, so you should consider adding shelves below your hanging rail so that you can make the most of your space.

Choose sliding doors

Most of the time, our cupboard doors are closed, which means they don’t take up much space. However, if you open them, they can end up making things a bit difficult if you’re working with a smaller area.

Sliding cupboard doors, on the other hand, don’t take up nearly as much space as traditional cupboard doors, making them a good option for those with small bedrooms

Make your cupboards go up to the ceiling

Very often, you will find that there is a gap between the top of a cupboard and the ceiling of a room. While this is a perfectly fine option if you have a lot of space to work with, it’s not the best solution for those with limited space, as it often ends up wasting a lot of space.

Of course, you likely won’t be able to easily access things stored right at the top of your cupboards, so it’s a good idea to use this space for items that you don’t regularly use. You can also use some of these storage ideas to help you organise this space.

In conclusion

Just because you have limited space doesn’t mean that you can’t still have amazing cupboards; it simply means that you may need to get a bit creative with how you design your cupboards.

Hopefully, this post gave you some insight into how you can use your space efficiently, whether for your kitchen cupboards or built-in cupboards.
