Small room ideas.

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 that does double duty as a stylish seater by day, and a cosy bed come evening.

Get a neat nest

A nest of tables lets you subtly slide out extra space for entertaining when you need it.

Conceal clutter with an ottoman

Toys, DVDs, blankets... living rooms can accrue a lot of stuff. Ottomans double up as storage and a foot rest, or extra seat.

Maximise your storage

Cube units are great for small spaces - put it against a wall or use it as a room divider if you're in an open plan room.

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.

Consider a clothes rail

Save on storage space with a rail - perfect for easy access to your capsule wardrobe.

Look for sliding doors

Can't move around your room when your wardrobe door is open? Opt for a sleeker sliding style.

Make space under the bed

Keep seasonal clothing, shoes and extra bedding and blankets tucked away with underbed storage.

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.

Choose dining designed for small spaces

Whether you have a dinky dining room or a little kitchen space to work with, you're not doomed to dinners-on-laps forever. These dining sets are designed with space-saving in mind.

Find a small, extendable table

Dinner for two, or group game night? Pick a small dining table with the option to extend when you need it.

Utilise vertical space

Look for underused wall space in a small kitchen - the right storage can help keep precious counter space clear.

Organise your kitchen

Get clever with kitchen cupboards, your fridge and even under the sink with organisers and storage solutions.

Small space styling tips

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.
