Small spaces that work with the way you live.

If you have a long narrow room and you need it to be used for different things in the one space, break it up into zones that can be used for those different things. Use mirrors to bounce light back into the space. Make a great focal point in the middle of the room to draw your attention into the room. Use the same color in the entire space to make it flow.


This video shows how these things can be done in a great way.


I really like tiny house movement. I think it is very interesting to see how they get so much into the small spaces.  Would you be able to live like this. I think that I could do it and like it very well. In this video it is a tour of a tiny house that they rented. It would be great for traveling and saving money at the same time.



This video gives some really good ideas to use in small spaces. Would you use some of them in your own home? I would.


I just had to add these videos because they are so different. Enjoy….



This is just to cute I had to put it in as well.

These things are just fun but I enjoy them I hope that you did as well.

Small space storage ideas and more.

When you have a small space, use every space that you have. No space is wasted space. Under the stairs. If you have tall ceilings, go up… use that space as a loft. Storage in the floor boards also works to hide things away.


All you have to do is think a little differently about the things that you have and how you want to use them. The things that are in the space can work in two or three ways to add to the room. Use things that can fold away to give you more space in the room. Beds, tables, chairs are a few thing that can fold away to add more space in the room.


Stairs can also be a place to store things, with drawers built into them. These are but a few of the things that can be done to add storage to a small space.


This video gives more ideas and shows the ones that we talk about here.


What can you think of to add to your storage in your space that can help your life be that much better.

What can you learn from those that live in small spaces?

People that live in small spaces have to think outside the box so that they can have all the things that they need to live.  They need space to store things. Places to sit, sleep, cook and so on. Furniture that has more than one use. Things that hide away when not in use.

If you are looking for furniture that does more than one thing check out this video.

You may not need to put four people in one room, but you can use the concepts of the space-saving furniture into your home. Think of the ways that you can use these things in your home to add more function to your home. If the bed hides away you have more room for children to play in the room and not all over the house.

It could be great for the office and guest room together.

Bigger is not always better. We need to think about these kinds of things and make it more workable for those that want to live this way.

This is what some people are doing to live in small spaces and not have to deal with the regulations that cities put in the codes. They put the house on wheels.

So some of the tips are:

Use furniture that has more than one use

like a day bed – a place to sit in the daytime and a bed at night, it might also have storage under it.

trunks- great for a table as well as for more storage like extra sheets and blankets for the day bed.

even book cases- If you are in a studio apartment  the bookcase can be a way to separate the spaces. If you want it more open space use a bookcase without a back on it so you can see all the way through. It can be used from both sides of the room. For a more closed off area use the ones with a back cover the back so that it looks nice from the back as well.


These are just a few of the ideas that can help you with your space.

These video is just for fun. If you own a small space you might want to think about some of these things in your space. They are things that would stay with the place if you moved. They might be harder to do for a rental apartment.  You could change them up a little to make them work for a rental unit as well.  Like two cabinets back to back so that they can be used for both rooms and as a way to separate the rooms and gives storage.

Hidden storage places.

Look at the way that they use cabinets in this space.
