In a small space, every piece of furniture should count. Use these tips for choosing furnishings and decorative elements to maximize functionality in tiny rooms.
1. Pedestal Tables
These tables help keep the floor area below more open.
2. Doors, Walls, and Drawers
Pick pocket doors to make small or awkward rooms more functional, annex outdoor space via sliding-glass walls, and choose drawers over conventional base-cabinet doors.
3. Hanging Decor
Mount everything to the wall, from bedside tables and swing-arm lamps to faucets and toilets.
4. Rounded Furniture
Choose rounded furnishings for better circulation and flow in snug quarters.
5. Coffee Table
Two-tiered coffee tables double usable surface area.
Select a sumptuous shower rather than a space-hogging tub.
7. Vintage Decor
Opt for vintage pieces, which are typically smaller in scale than contemporary alternatives.
