Double Duty

Small house? Even smaller appartment? Or maybe even big house? Yet somehow you still don't have enough space to store all your blongings?? It's time to start thinking about 'double duty' and maximize on the space you do have.

Double Duty is something Sarah Susanka really pioneered and got people talking about. It's all about taking something in the house and giving it more than one use to maximize functionality, and minimize clutter.


Transformative furniture, like this sofa that doubles as a bunk bed, are key items to put in a house that is tight on space.


Create stoage under an open staircase.


You can even have storage in a table top! Perfect for dishes, place settings or even cook books!


Seating with storage underneath is alays a great way to save space and add room for storage.


Have a small closet in your home or apartment, but you just LOVE shoes? Get this shoe drawer available at Ikea and get all those shoes off the floor, and into on convenient place.


When you were little, you probable put stuff under your bed all the time right? Well, turns out that was actually a great idea!


Some of these examples can be created though a DIY project, and some need to be purchased, but let these ideas get your mind flowing on ways to make duble duty happen and maximize on saving space in your house or apartment.

    Writing an academic essay means fashioning a coherent set of ideas into an argument. Because essays are essentially linear they offer one idea at a time—they must present their ideas in the order that makes most sense to a reader. Successfully structuring an essay means attending to a reader's logic.
