Making a Small House More Convenient

Looking for some small house inspiration? Steal clever decorating and space-saving tricks to live big in your own small spaces.

A few design, style, and organization tricks can make a small house live large. Customize these ideas to your layout and floor plan for a personalized, yet strategic setup that works for you.

Tricks for Small Living Rooms

Trick #1: Exposed-leg furniture airs out a space, but every room needs a little grounding. Here, the skirted sofa is up for the job. Without it, the leggy pieces would look as if they were ready to walk away.

Trick #2: Choose materials that don’t obstruct sight lines. Here, a wire mesh coffee table adds texture and function without visual weight.  It’s the same effect as a Lucite piece in that it’s almost invisible.


Trick #3: Create the illusion of a spacious room by adding mirrors to your decor. The simple, yet versatile accessories add depth to the room and open it up with added light and dimension. Antique glass is a nice way to open up a room without feeling like you’re staring at yourself.

Eat, Prep, Work:

Trick #4: Double up function when needed. This home lacks a dining room and contends with a small kitchen. A restaurant work table in the corner of the kitchen is a dining table, countertop, and desk rolled into one. Backless stools keep things visually light.

Sweet Sleep:

Trick #5: Go with rounded furniture, like this bedside table, to allow more move-around space.

Trick #6: Built-in storage units provide plentiful storage space while avoiding floor-hogging dressers and armoires. Doug went between the studs to gain to-the-ceiling storage in the bedroom.

Do something with your own hands for comfort in the house

Try making something yourself. For example, you can buy an old bookcase or a small table and give it new life by repainting or painting it.

Hang new curtains on the windows

Empty windows have been gaining popularity lately, but whatever one may say, windows with curtains look cozier. Choose simple materials: cotton, linen, light flowing tulle. However, both roller blinds and Roman ones are suitable – any curtains create a sense of security.

Don’t forget lighting

It also plays an important role and helps to create comfort. Let you have several lighting scenarios in each room. For example, a general light in the living room, a floor lamp by the reading chair and a table lamp by the sofa.
