We all have those itty-bitty rooms we simply don’t know how to make the most use of, whether it’s a living room, home office, or a kid's bedroom. If you need advice on maximizing a room with minimal square footage, you’ve come to the right place!
In the Living Room
Choose Furnishings that Help Hide Clutter
Consider a coffee table or end tables with ample shelving and drawers. Remember that a storage ottoman can double as a bench and a stylish storage space that can hide remotes, blankets or knickknacks!
Opt for Seating with a Reclining Mechanism Instead of a Chaise
While a chaise is a luxurious and comfortable addition to many rooms, it’s not always the best idea when you’re lacking space. Without sacrificing comfort, consider sprawling out on a reclining chair or sofa instead!
Choose Small-Scale Furniture
If necessary, consider replacing a large sofa with a smaller loveseat. This is a smart way to gain more area to work with and make your living space more breathable.
In the Home Office
Choose a Desk with the Right Amount of Storage
A desk with a couple drawers and cabinet storage may be all you need, as opposed to multiple pieces of furniture or even a large, heavy duty desk that takes up a large portion of the room. Before you make your purchase, assess whether a more compact desk will do the trick.
Consider Storing your Bookshelf in Another Area
If there’s not enough room in your home office, but you’re not willing to sacrifice some office essentials, why not place your bookshelf in a nearby room? A bookshelf could be a great addition to the décor of a living room or bedroom.
In a Kid's Bedroom
Use multifunctional furniture
A piece of furniture that functions as a dresser, shelving unit AND a bed just might be the solution to any cramped kid's bedroom.
Add a Bunk bed
When it comes to kids sharing a bedroom, a bunk bed might be just what they need to comfortably share the area. This is the best way to achieve more space for playtime, games, and other fun activities!
