What I Love About My Small Home:
The huge ceilings, which makes the space feel much more substantial. Also, the fact that it's well insulated. After living in a period flat for a number of years, we were astounded that we did not need to us the heating this winter at all.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
I'm not sure there is one formula, as every space is so different. However, one thing that works for us in this specific space is using furniture with dual purposes. We only have one bedroom, so our sofa is also a sofabed, the TV cabinet provides storage, and the ottomans come in handy as extra seating when we have guests.
Also, try thinking outside of the confines of the existing floorplan. We took a door off because the swing ate up our living space and severely limited our furniture selections and layout.
Lastly, if all else fails, keep the living spaces clutter free by shoving all your junk in strategically placed baskets and storage cupboards. Works for us!
