Is it just me or does it seem like every time we turn around, we’re running out of space? We’re searching for more leg room, elbow room, head space, closet space, counter space, shall I continue?
Clutter is named as a prime suspect in what’s stealing our precious space and whether you live in the city or the suburbs the problem remains the same. If you work from home, then seems you have twice the challenge.
Recently, Panasonic partnered with celebrity interior designer Robin Wilson and issued the Maximize Your Space Challenge. I gladly accepted. So far, in my home we created a happy home office where the kids could work alongside me.
Then, my husband made a career change so we carved out a nook in the hallway to accommodate the kids because…
…my husband and his business moved in with me.
As a part of the Maximize Your Space Challenge, Panasonic sent me the Panasonic KX-PRL262 (iPhone) Link to Cell Docking Station and I had the perfect place for it.
With the Panasonic KX-PRL262 (iPhone) Link to Cell Docking Station for iPhone, my husband and I can both sync our smartphones to home phone via Bluetooth®, no landline required. We can make and receive cell calls with Link2Cell handsets, stream music from our smartphone with built-in speakers, keep our iPhone5® charged via lightening connector (there’s a version for android users too!). We never miss a text with talking ID alerts from Link2Cell handsets.
What I love most about this product is that it can perform more than one task making it a great choice for maximizing space.
Its streamline design fits seamlessly into our office décor.
There’s a separate docking station for the second phone.
In addition to our new office technology, we’ve also benefitted from Panasonic’s FlashXpress™ Toaster Oven with Double Infrared Heating for the kitchen. Its double infrared heating feature gives this kitchen essential the ability to function like an oven and requires no pre-heating. Though it is compact in size, it still maintains a spacious interior and can cook everything from waffles to pizza to turkey bacon!
With our morning rush, kids and all, our breakfast prep needs to be made simple and tasty!
With so many great things to say about my new products from Panasonic, it’s only right that I give Blulabel Bungalow readers a chance to win both the Panasonic KX-PRL262 (iPhone) OR KX-PRD262 (Android) Link to Cell Docking Station and the Panasonic FlashXpress™ Toaster Oven with Double Infrared Heating! You’ll thoroughly enjoy both or they make a perfect gift for the holidays.

We can never get enough helpful (and healthful) tips on Maximizing Your Space. Here are even more tips from celebrity interior designer Robin Wilson:
In the Living Room: Choose furniture for a small living room that is appropriate for the space. For example, avoid sofas with skirts and select couches that are raised off the floor to create a more open look.
Storage: Living simply can go a long way toward making your home feel larger. Every season, go through your closet and toss aside items that are worn out, no longer fit, or are out of style. Use creative storage solutions to make more space. For example, an ottoman that doubles as a trunk is a great place to store old photos and keepsakes. A bike rack that mounts to the wall can clear valuable floor space in your foyer.
Throughout the Home: Ensure that you have lighting at floor, table and eye level to help limit shadows. Another trick is to use a tall lamp to draw eyes upwards and add height to the room. A small home is no excuse for feeling cramped. With a few interior design strategies in place, you can make even the smallest space feel larger in size.
