Her Home Was Cramped, Until She Discovered A Brilliant Solution For Her Living Space
Rachel Sebastian 4/20/2016
If you’ve ever lived in a small home or apartment, you know just how difficult it can be to live in a condensed space. Luckily in the design realm, going smaller does not mean losing style or functionality.
If you don’t have room for a full-on nightstand to put next to your bed, opt for a stylish shelf to install in the corner of the room. This way, you’ll have a designated spot for all your nighttime necessities without the bulk.
Under the Stairs Space-Saver
Chances are, there’s an ample amount of space under your stairs that you’re not fully utilizing, and it’s no surprise – it’s dark, not functional and hard to get to. Converting this space to a cubby area for coats, backpack and shoe storage is a great solution to harnessing everyday items to one space.
Furniture In The Closet?
If you have limited space in one room, relocating your dresser into the closet could be revolutionary to your space. This way, you have hidden drawers as well as a storage space above the dresser, creating more places to tame clutter as well as expanding the square footage in the chosen room.
There seems to be little to no place to store extra towels in an already small bathroom space. Consider installing easy, lightweight basket shelves to maximize the vertical space of the room, all while avoiding storing your clean towels under the dirty sink. Follow these instructions to make your bathroom super stylish as well as functional.
Fold Away Table
If you’re a fan of changing your space to meet your needs, a fold-up table could be your new favorite addition. Most of us need the extra craft or working space, but don’t always have the room to have it out all of the time.

A Thin Accent Table
Coffee tables are great for accessorizing with your favorite candles and books, but they can often take up too much of your precious floor space. Opt for placing a smaller, thinner table behind your sofa to keep your space stylish and functional.

Creative Tank Top Storage
Do you have loads of tank tops in your closet that take up some much needed hangar real estate? I’m assuming that’s most of us! With a velvet hangar and some shower rings, you can create a clever storage system for your (seemingly) endless supply of cotton tanks. The velvet hangar keeps the rings from sliding around while your tank tops hang ready for you to wear in one space.

Mirror Your Space
As the saying goes, imitation is the best form of flattery – and your interiors are no exception! Invest in a large mirror to visually expand your space and create more light. Your room will look larger and it’s a great decorating option!
Making The Most Of It
Uncovering the extra space around us can be tricky, but with a little inspiration and minimal supplies, you can get some great results.
