I want a chest freezer. That way I could buy a whole side of grass-fed beef and save a lot of money. But where would I put it? If I threw out our kitchen table, which sits in a very small dining nook, I could put the freezer in that space. But then we would have to eat off TV trays in the living room. Or I could throw out the fold-down futon couch, replace it with an easy chair and put the freezer in that space. I really don’t really like that idea since it would make our little living room area non-existant. Especially since my husband has his computer desk and chair in the corner by the window right next to the front door.
You get the picture. Our space is tight. But I still want my home to look good. One way of solving my space problem is to use lots of mirrors. I can look into the big mirror above the futon couch and see my reflection in the mirror on the opposite wall. That gives the feeling of infinite space even thought there are only eight feet of space between the two walls. If not for the mirrors I might feel claustrophobic. Then also the majority of the rest of the walls in our living space are filled with cupboards and high wall units. The space above my kitchen cabinets is curtained off with a short eight-inch drape and the space behind that is used for storing seldom-used items.
If things are clean and picked up, my home looks quite cozy. But I still haven’t solved the problem of where I might put that freezer. The only thing I can think of is to put it outside our front door in our small patio area. I still have to think about that one.
