Small homes and apartments are all the rage right now. But, just because you live in a small space doesn’t mean you have to feel like you do! Not with a few tips and hacks up your sleeve like these small space living ideas. 🙂
Staying organized and finding room for all of your stuff in a small home can seem almost impossible, but if you get creative with how you configure your furniture, utilize all of the empty vertical space, and invest in a few helpful products, you might just discover that you need less space than you think with these clever small space hacks.
“The greatest wealth is to live content with little.”
1. Ceiling Shelves
The vertical space above your furniture can be cleverly utilized with built-in shelves that hang down from the ceiling for your books, frames, and other items that don’t need to be used on a daily basis. All of that shelving without taking up any needed space! This can be done in just about any room of the house.
High shelving utilizes vertical space that would otherwise go unused…
2. Small Space Dining
No room for a dining room table? Use a console table at the end of a couch in a living area that’s next to the kitchen. It doubles as a place to eat, craft, rest, and work! This would also be a convenient place to set a drink down while you’re on the couch. You can find more information about this table here.
3. Between The Studs
Small homes and apartments don’t typically have a lot of storage space. Even finding a place for the broom can be challenging! This is where taking advantage of the wall space in between the studs in your walls comes handy. I’ve seen this done in closets for jewelry, bathrooms for small toiletries, kitchens for spices, and laundry rooms for brooms and mops. Check out the details here.
