Living in close quarters can definitely be a challenge, but with the right products, it is definitely doable! You just have to go about it in a creative manner. Here are our top small space solutions that we swear by to maximize your space all while keeping it cozy and on trend!
Use Multifunctional Storage
Storage ottomans are perfect for storing many items in a very discreet yet trendy way. They are the perfect multifunctional product, ideal for additional seating in your space as well as acting as the perfect stepping stool for hopping onto a lofted bed or reaching that top shelf in your closet.
Maximize Closet Space
Adequate closet and dresser space is so important to any fashionista. However, you most likely won’t find it in a small room. Purchasing products like a hanging cube are an ideal solution for the issue. Look for products that can help you utilize the space in the most efficient manner. The hanging cube is great to add additional shelving without compromising any actual hanging space.
Other favorites are the over the door shoe racks and under the bed storage bins. Use under the bed bins to store bulky winter coats/sweaters and swap them out for summer clothes in the warmer months. This will help open up plenty of space in your closet which means all the more reason to go shopping!! Shoe racks are great as well because it opens up more floor space in your closet to store other large objects.
Eliminate Your Side Table
Yes, there is no denying that a cute side table can add so much style and charm to your room. But when valuable floor space is at stake, sometimes you have to make a few compromises. I am here to say though that those compromises can still be just as trendy!
Instead of using a bulky side table, incorporate a product like a caddy, or even install floating shelves. You can still have all of your essentials right at your side, all while opening up the room.
Create Functional Wall Displays
It is important to maximize your wall space when living in tight quarters. Use products like Command™ ledges to stack and create a stylish gallery wall with books, picture frames, keys, etc.
You can also use your walls as storage for your favorite accessories. Install a product like Command™ hooks on your wall to place hats, scarves, bags, and necklaces. You can get creative and turn your favorite accessories into a focal point while creating extra open space.
Make The Most of Your Desk Space
A well organized desk is the key to a productive work session. My advice is less is more. A cluttered desk is only going to be distracting and really make the entire room look smaller. By incorporating things like storage boxes into your desk decor, you can hide any small miscellaneous papers, books, or trinkets to give it a cleaner, more organized look.
A desk riser is also the perfect tool to add additional space to your desk by giving you two levels to organize your products on instead of one. Place your storage box underneath, and put more decorative pieces on top to create a chic multi-leveled display that looks clean and organized.
Overall, there are so many ways to transform your small space into a trendy, clutter free masterpiece. My best tip is go with a more minimalistic approach that will truly make your room feel bigger than you ever thought possible in a small space. Utilize all aspects of the room and never be afraid to get a little innovative. You never know what you’ll come up with!
