5 Big Ideas for Small Spaces

Room space

The other day I was in the shower and had one of those “Aha!” moments. I realized that a lot of people have trouble coming up with big ideas for small spaces.

After all, if you’re not a designer or architect, it can be tough to think of great ways to use the space you have. But don’t worry—I’ve got you covered.

1. Get an armoire to hide your TV.

If you don’t have a separate room for your TV, you’re probably fighting with cords and cables. The best way to hide them is with an armoire that has a TV built in. If you can’t find one of those, just make sure the TV is facing the wall so that the cables are out of sight.

2. Try a sectional sofa or futon.

It’s hard to fit a large sofa into a small space, but if you can manage it, get one that can convert into a bed or pull out into two separate couches for movie night. Futons are great too because they’re inexpensive and easy to fold up when not in use.

3. Hang up some wall art for added dimension and visual interest.

Don’t be afraid to put holes in your walls if it means making your space look better! If you don’t want the holes, try using removable adhesive hooks or clips to hang up artwork and other things like scarves and bags instead of leaving them on the floor or hanging on coat racks where they’ll get wrinkled and stretched out over time.

4. Go vertical with a bookcase.

If you have the space, get a wall-mounted bookcase to use as extra storage. They’re often the same height as a normal bookshelf, but they take up less space and can fit more stuff.

5. Make your living room double as an office or dining room with furniture that has hidden storage underneath it.

A couch with built-in storage is ideal for this purpose because it gives you some extra space for things like blankets and throws, books, magazines, or anything else you might want to hide away when not in use.

If you don’t have room for a couch that pulls out into a bed, consider getting a futon or sleeper sofa instead so that it can be used as both seating and sleeping space.
