Ways To Make the Most of a Tiny Space
Do you live in a tiny space, but long to have an entertainment center, as well as sufficient room for yoga in the morning? The key is to make the most of the space you have by choosing creative furniture that serves more than one purpose. Here are some ways to make the most of a tiny space.
Have a Mobile Entertainment/Work Center
Keep your stereo system in a small television stand that also serves as a desk. Install shock absorbing casters so you can move the system against a wall when not in use while still protecting your expensive equipment. The casters will also protect your floor and make less noise.
Install a Murphy Bed
A murphy bed folds up flat against a wall during the day so that it’s out of sight and out of the way. Tidy your bed in the morning and then fold it away, giving you tons more space for other activities.
Invest in Convertible Furniture
Buy a dining room table that can seat six but also be folded into a much slimmer, two-person version. Use sturdy, stackable storage boxes for chairs. Get a filing cabinet and paint it a bright color and use it for an end table by your sofa.
Take Advantage of Your Walls
Attach wire baskets to your walls to store clothing and other items. Have a hanging closet in one corner along with shelves for your shoes and other possessions. Add shelving over the toilet to store towels and other items. Place a shelf over the bathroom door for extra storage space. Install spice racks and more hanging baskets for your spices and canned goods.
By maximizing the use of your space and throwing in a little creativity, you can live comfortably in your tiny nest with everything you need.
