It’s incredible how innovative someone can be when designing for a small space. Check out these two Colorado natives who turned an old bus into a livable space on HGTV. Maybe you don’t live on a bus or in a converted freight car, but you might live in a small city apartment or have a space in your home that isn’t quite big enough. All it takes is some hard work and creativity to make a livable space out of anything and here’s where you can start:
The first step to making a small space do more is to re-think your home’s storage. Bulky dressers or cabinets are not going to be doing a small room any favors but there is a ton of space to utilize as storage — you just need to know where to find it.
Find empty space right under your furniture, like a couch or a bed. Pick up some small drawers that could potentially fit under your bed or even some baskets which you could store away.
You don’t have to put a fold out bed in your kitchen, but making a room multi-purpose can consolidate a lot of space. If you have a small apartment, think about incorporating the living room and the dining room with a high top table against a wall or even by ditching the coffee table and using small side tables to save space. Utilize small nooks within a room by placing a small desk for a cozy home office.
It really is best to embrace the space your home provides, so play to its advantages. Don’t make the amount of space the focal point of a room. Instead, make the furniture center the focus of your space.
Incorporating a normal size couch into a small living room can invite people to use the space and make a more intimate atmosphere. If you have a tiny bedroom, make the bed the focus of the room which will show off the utility of the space and give the room a cozy character.
