6. A space to escapeI love finding and creating spaces where they didn’t exist before. The space beneath the stairs is underrated yet it can provide the perfect nook for many uses. If you had an escape spot in your old place and are having trouble finding that in your new house, this cosy reading corner will prove to be an attractive space for all the family. Tip: Install a simple light fixture and upholstered daybed in your favourite fabric, some scatter cushions and a place to store stuff, and you’re in paradise.

5. You watch, scroll through and listen to too much newsIt’s easy to get caught up in political battles and all the wars, carnage, death and destruction going on in the world. But it’s not such a great idea if all this negativity is stopping you from ever feeling truly relaxed or content. And do you really need to know what the latest celebrity to give birth named their child? Solution: Even if you don’t have a large home, are there places you can make strictly screen-free and devote to relaxation? This is a novel example of making every space count – an under-stairs area that might otherwise go unused has been transformed into an enticing nook for relaxation and reading.
