Raising a Family in an Apartment – Tips to Deal With Minimal Space…

Living with children in a small space can be hard! And whilst you may think that using space saving products and reorganizing is futile, you would be surprised to see the difference it makes. Naturally the less space you have, the more organized you have to be, but utilising that space and giving the existing rooms a makeover is always a winner with children and with the variety of storage products for small spaces now available it will be a winner with you too no doubt! In the following articles you’ll find out how to regain some space in the bedroom, bathroom and around the house generally. Let’s start in the bedroom and especially areas where you do, and potentially could, store your clothes, because clothing takes up a lot of space especially children’s clothing because when they are young they need so much!

Clothing can be a real problem to fit into a small wardrobe, especially as they get older. Space Saving Hangers are the key! The selection at Caraselle is vast and the range accommodates Children’s hangers from beautiful deluxe wooden hangers you’ll want to keep forever, to space saving hangers, and truly amazing value for money hangers that simply do the job!

Such as the Swivel Hook Hanger which is perfect because it has tie/belt bars and end loops to allow you have as much use from each hanger as possible and the swivel hook is really useful for hanging on the back of the door too and turns it into an over door clothes hanger.

Space Saver Hanger Packs are brilliant too, with 1 Space Saver Hanger Bar & 6 hangers per pack… they allow 6 garments to hang in the same space as 1!

If you’re fed up with having to keep buying new sizes of hanger as your children grow you would be interested in the Bendy Hanger. These hangers are fantastic for Children’s Clothes because you can change the shape to accommodate many styles & sizes of garments. The Small Bendy Hangers are available with the Rubber Coating and they will last for years because you can bend them to fit your children’s clothes as they move up through the sizes.
