The high ceilings and tall windows help it feel open and spacious despite the small footprint. We are able to fit everything we need in this space, and the size reminds us to be mindful of what we bring home -- no clutter allowed!
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
Clean as you go -- Our small space can get overwhelmed when stuff isn't put back in it's place, so I'm constantly tidying up and putting things away.
Purge your belongings -- Before we moved in, we pared down a lot of our stuff, and every now and then I try to look around and see what items we no longer need. Anything that's not serving a purpose gets given away.
Consider scale -- Each piece of furniture was measured before deciding whether it could fit comfortably in this small space. We've been offered furniture by family members, and if something is borderline too large or bulky, it's not an option.
