All our space-saving home inspiration in one place.

Small living rooms

Find a small-scale sofa

Measure out your living room to find a "just right" sofa that suits your space - a big sofa can overwhelm and leave you with little wiggle room. You might be surprised at options, like luxurious velvet upholstery and compact corner sofas.

Do you love hosting guests, but don't have a spare room? Try a slim sofa bed or a day bed that does double duty as a stylish seater by day, and a cosy bed come evening.

Small home offices

Go for a small desk

Sleek, smart and space-savvy. With a small desk, you can save space without compromising on style. From corner to narrow desks, take your pick.

Small bedrooms

Seek out beds with storage

Bed storage might not be the first solution you think of, but it can be a game-changer. Look for beds like lift-up ottomans (perfect for storing away extra bedding and cushions) or frames with plenty of drawers and cubby spaces.

Cluttered kids bedroom?

Keep kids rooms neat and tidy with sleepers and storage beds. High sleepers offer an elevated bed (think a bunk bed without the bottom bunk), allowing space for desks or playtime. Storage beds are a little lower with plenty of drawers and cubby space for clutter.

Create an illusion of space with mirrors

Mirrors make a huge difference. If you're getting new furniture consider a sleek mirror finish, or place a few large mirrors around the room to make it feel twice as big.

Hang floor-to-ceiling curtains

Even if your windows are on the shorter side, your curtains don't have to be. Opt for a longer drape that reaches the floor to make your ceilings look taller and your room feel bigger.

Add zone-defining rugs

This is a great tip for open plan places like a studio flat. A large area rug will help to define each zone - living, dining, sleeping - pick one which suits your decor.
