Big Inspiration for Small Spaces
Whether flat, house, or barn conversion, we all have to deal with tricky, small spaces in our home. Trying to fit in furniture or design the perfect room often proves a bigger task than planned. At the same time, it can be a great opportunity for change, whether that means clearing out the clutter or coming up with a clever design solution.
There is no need to worry if you’ve got a small living room. Furnished right, they often turn out to be the most cosy and homely.
Don’t struggle to fit in all the traditional pieces of furniture you expect to see in a living room. Instead, make the pieces you buy work harder for their space. Coffee tables don’t have to sit in the middle of the room. If space is tight, choose a coffee table with storage and place it in the corner of the room, adding storage space for extra items such as books and magazines. A nest of tables can be tucked away much more easily at the end of the day.
If you’re struggling with fitting your television into the living room, then why not mount it on the wall? Not only will this save space, it will also create the feeling of a home cinema – now there’s a touch of luxury!
If the kitchen is the centre of your home, you’ll never worry whether it’s too big or small… you’ll just enjoy it. Even if the space is on the small side, it can be transformed into a cosy cottage hideaway or a piece of beautiful contemporary design. The key to making a small kitchen feel bigger is keeping your work surfaces uncluttered and making use of your wall space.
Seating is an important element, too, and in a small kitchen a breakfast bar is a good option. Alternatively, a small square or foldable dining table can let you create a cosy breakfast nook for two.
A small bedroom comes with a set of challenges all its own, as a bed, wardrobe, chest, and bedside cabinets can make it feel cramped and overwhelmed.
Shelving is a great space saver in small bedrooms. Not just for your favourite books, but also for storing pictures, plants and trinkets that might make your room feel cluttered otherwise.
Underbed storage is another wonderful way of saving space in your bedroom. Items can be safely and neatly tucked away without the stress of trying to fit in more furniture or find a place for your belongings. Why not try one of our Under Bed Drawers in a range of designs and sizes? You’re sure to find the perfect solution to your bedroom storage issues!
