Not all homeowners are blessed with ample space for large bedrooms – some have to settle with small ones. If you belong to the latter group, don’t feel unfortunate because you can still find ways to expand your space.
Add Built-in Storage
First, invest in a bed that comes with built-in storage. If you can’t find such a bed at the furniture shops, have one custom-built to suit your needs. By adding storage under the bed, there would be ample space to stash linens, seasonal clothes and shoes, bulky items, or other items that you want to store for some time.
It would also be a great idea to stash these items in labeled boxes so you won’t have to go through every box just to find what you need.
Use a Built-in Headboard
Since you already have built-in storage under the bed, why not add more at the headboard? That would be perfect for displaying keepsakes, storing books, or holding other stuff such as mobile devices. For added convenience, you can even add electrical outlets at the headboard so you can charge your devices as well.
Use Chairs as Side Table
If your room is too small to accommodate a side table, you can use chairs instead. That way, you could store the chair but still find use for it. Also, if you need to use the chair, you simply have to move the stuff to another spot.
Add Mirrors to Closet Doors
Adding mirrors in the closet doors works in two ways: you get to have a large mirror where you can check out your outfits and also make the space appear larger than it is. In fact, if the entire closet doors are made of mirrors, you can make the room appear twice as large.
Elevate the Bed
Is the ceiling high enough to accommodate a raised bed? If yes, then this is the perfect solution to your space problem. With the bed raised, you can use the space underneath as a study area, dressing area, closet, bathroom, or anything you want, really.

This Guy’s 6th Anniversary Gift for Girlfriend: A Room Makeover!
What’s the best way to show someone you love them? There are many ways to do that – and the premise there is that you do something that would make your loved one happy and feel appreciated.
While flowers and chocolates work for most girls, there are also those who prefer more practical gifts.
For Giearson Agapito Genova, he knew the best gift he could give his girlfriend Mariz on their 6th anniversary is to give her room a makeover.
According to Genova, his girlfriend’s room became a sort-of stock room after her father died but while he had always encouraged her to get the room fixed, she always had some excuse not to do it.
Knowing his girlfriend loves to decorate and would surely enjoy putting her Hello Kitty collection on display, Genova kept on persuading her to agree to the makeover. Perhaps a bit tired of his nagging, she finally relented – with the condition that she doesn’t do the redecorating. He’s OK with that.
For a complete makeover, Genova also had the ceiling redone. In fact, it was the first thing that he had fixed. From the top, he worked downwards.
He got the walls repainted and shelves installed for his girlfriend’s collection.
Since he’s redecorating the room, he thought he might as well fix the bed frame; then, he bought a new foam mattress for good measure.
He also made sure to get her cabinet redone and even bought her a new wall fan.
And because she loves to decorate, he also bought her two bags full of various items she can use to complete her room’s appearance. For finishing touches, he even got her a pink robe.
The overall effect was awesome! While the room was small, he was able to make the room look cute and functional without getting it overcrowded with stuff. Best anniversary gift, yes?
Mom Thinks Of A Genius Way To Entertain Her Baby While Doing Her Chores
Babies are such a joy to have. A home becomes brighter and lovelier whenever there is a new baby. The brightness they bring is because of a lot of reasons, it may be because of their smiles, or the way they babble.
Most of the time, though, it is because of the funny and cute things they do. Just like this little tike who found a way to help her mom juggle her multitasking. Ideas Fun shares this adorable story.
This smart toddler’s mom owns a Roomba, it is a robotic vacuum that is designed to zoom across the floor going under furniture and other fixtures to clean daily dust. Along with the daily specks of dust comes loose pet hair, crumbs, and other little dirt that may be harmful to babies when eaten.
Apparently, along with the Roomba, comes the baby! Yes, this baby’s mom found a genius way to entertain her baby while doing her daily chores.
Just look how this baby seems to be enjoying being carried and swept on the floor by the Roomba.
The baby did not even wince when it seemed that they were about to bump the wall.
Just watch them go on the floor. This baby is going to grow up smart, that’s for sure.
Watch the adorable video below:
What is Roomba?
Roomba was made to help people with the never-ending cleaning tasks. It is designed to clean everyday dirt that is prone to building up when not taken care of.
Dirt like pet hair, crumbs, dirt, and daily dust are Roomba’s targets. It is a circular robotic vacuum that glides through the floor. It has sensors that allow it to move away from walls and furniture legs.
It also has a sensor to know the edge of the stairs so it can change direction before it falls. And best of all, it apparently is a good tool to entertain your toddler, too!
“The Green Heart of Bogota” is The World’s Greatest Vertical Garden
How would you like to live in a building as refreshing as this to look at?
The smell of fresh air, the swaying green leaves that somehow waves at you, and the joy it brings that reminds you of the beauty of the things around you…….
Be ready to be amazed with this World’s Best!
An 11-storey-building covered with over 33 square feet of plants situated in the middle of Bogota, Colombia, is known to be the largest vertical garden in the world.
Famously known today as “The Green Heart of Bogota”, Edificio Santalaia was the result of the “green” minds of the Spanish designers, Paisajismo Urbano and Columbian company, Groncol.
After 8 months of tidious planning and another 8 months of hard work, the “State of the Art” vertical garden was finished in December of 2015, and had given a new meaning to the vital role of the plants in the lives of mankind.
The selection of plants totaling 115,000 of 10 species and 5 different families in the World’s Best and Largest Vertical Garden, was the product of careful assemblage of the plants, chosen by Ignacio Solano, the head of Paisajismo Urbano, together with his troupe along their journey to Colombia’s Choco rainforest. The plants were chosen in such a way that they appear homochromatic to achieve that neutral look.
Paisajismo shared, “THE SELECTION OF THE SPECIES IS FUNDAMENTAL IN THIS TYPE OF GARDENS, SINCE THE BIODIVERSITY IN A VERTICAL ECOSYSTEM ALLOWS THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE SPECIES THAT FORM IT, BOTH PLANTS AND MICROORGANISMS.”
“THE LARGE SURFACE AREA INVOLVED WAS AN ADDITIONAL DIFFICULTY COMPARED TO OTHER VERTICAL GARDENS SINCE IT INVOLVED THE USE OF A GREATER NUMBER OF PLANTS,” HE ADDED.
Taking into consideration the great variety of plants used in the garden, irrigation was by far, the greatest challenge that Solano and his collaborators had taken into account. This made the adjustment of the chemical parameters of the water and its nourishment a serious matter until Paisajismo Urbano ended up using 40 irrigation sectors that were automatically controlled depending on humidity and solar radiation. It was also set-up in such a way that water flowing from the living walls of the building and the wastewater from the residents were recycled.
The world’s largest vertical garden was not built for merely aesthetics but for a greater significance to human kind, according to Paisajismo Urbano.
Their website stated, “A vertical garden of this size is capable of producing the oxygen needed by more than 3,100 people a year, processing about 775 kilograms of heavy metals , filtering more than 2,000 tons of harmful gases and catching more than 400 kilograms of dust”.
The carbon dioxide emitted by the plants compensate the carbon among 700 people and filters the air for the PMm emissions of 745 vehicles.
The green foliage also helps diminish the heat inside the building on Summer seasons and lessens the usage of air condition units.
