What I Love About My Small Home:
The best part about our converted San Francisco 1906 Earthquake Cottage is easily the vaulted ceilings. Not only do they look beautiful but they make the space look much larger than it really is. We also love how smart our landlords were when renovating this tiny cottage, making sure to put closets and storage areas in every typically unused nook and cranny. This home might be small but it’s just the right amount of space for us and our tiny dog.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space:
1.Straighten up every morning before leaving for work. That way you come home to a stress and clutter free, open environment.
2.Try to keep most furniture against walls to create more of an open, airy middle space. Perfect for our spontaneous 2-person dance parties.
3.For everything that you do not use every day, put away into a closet or storage area. Only keep useful or decorative items visible.
