When you walk through the door of your small home or apartment, you might already feel that you are suffocated because of the small space. You might feel it is already crowded or you are thinking of moving to a much bigger home.
Here are space-saving furniture ideas for your small home. These pieces can enhance your living space, give your home a modern look, and help organize your belongings.
Having a small home can easily look cluttered and unorganized. Storage space can be limited and items without a home can end up all piled up on the floor or other surfaces. Visible storage solutions like baskets, boxes, and jars, can just add to the clutter.
The solution is using hidden storage. Hide your necessities behind the door or other clever cover-ups to give your apartment a clean, minimalist feel. You may also add these storage spaces on your sofa or under a piece of art.
When your space is limited, the last thing you need is big pieces of furniture which can just limit the space. Stick to the basics of what you need to fully enjoy the space. This does not mean that you need to live in an empty apartment. It means you should select pieces that can serve double duty such as an ottoman, a sofa table, a self-storing furniture or a bench.
Bookcases are a lifesaver when it comes to living in a small space. They come in different sizes, shapes, and colors. They are not only functional but they are also attractive.
Bookcases can be a room divider, a home office, a house collection of items to clear clutter, and even an armless sofa bookend.
Before you add any furniture to your small home, take a weekend off and organize and clean your place first. Go through your cabinets and closets, and donate or discard anything that you do not need or you have not used for some time.
Once you are done sorting out your stuff, give your home a fresh paint job, surface scrub or good wallpaper to freshen it up. Starting with a blank canvass can help you personalize your new space.
