One of my favourite teachers growing up used to reiterate this saying over and over while teaching us woodwork. We’d all joke afterwards about how he’s spent another 5 minutes lecturing us, but in fact he was preparing us for adulthood.
Think about it. If you fail to plan something and it somehow works out then great it’s a win. But how often does that happen? Rarely, if ever. So if you always wish for success then you must plan. So that’s what I realised I had to do when I looked at my 2 bed flat with living /dining room. There was too much stuff and not enough space.
So with the option of moving not there, I thought “let me fix this problem”. And as I started to fix it I realised that this problem was bigger than I originally thought.
Some of the solutions were obvious but others were harder to come by. I thought I’d share the progress and probable misadventures to help anyone else who might need ideas when maximising space.
