What I Love About My Small Home:
Living lightly! You can only have so much in a small space, you realize what's necessary and what isn't. It's also quick to clean. But the best feature is the high ceiling -- it allows me to store vertically and makes the rooms feel bigger.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
Storage is extremely important, and finding furniture to fit in the space the floor plan allocates without major remodeling was one of my biggest challenges. Most of my furniture was bought on a budget from Ikea and Target. But some pieces were worth the splurge. The love seat is a vintage piece, and I have a small cabinet from West Elm that was the only thing I could find to place next to my entry. Decorating with a seller's mentally is also difficult. I try to have my own style, but always keep in mind that this is a temporary home and I don't want to scare future buyers away with anything too funky.
