It’s not just homeowners that are having trouble finding space, some offices across the country are becoming cramped and desks are becoming overcrowded.
Finding an efficient way to store office essentials and creating a productive environment for workers is becoming an increasingly difficult balance. Rather than keep moving up into the sky and making rooms smaller, offices should start to consider how they can make the most of their outdoor space.
Recent research carried out by the Royal Institute of British Architects has suggested that new houses are far too small. Many Britons are beginning to find that their new builds don’t have space to store everything they need and still have room to relax.
There have been reports that homeowners are going to extreme lengths to ensure they have room to enjoy their homes. Some have said they store their vacuum cleaners at a friend’s 20 minutes away, others keep their non-perishable goods from a weekly shop in the boot of their car!
