When it comes to decorating your home in a way that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, small spaces can be among the hardest to nail. Not only do you have to make use of every square inch, but oftentimes the pieces you choose need to do double (or even triple!) duty in your home (think: a coffee table that boasts hidden storage or stylish natural fiber baskets that disguise the tech accessories beneath your television).

No one understands the need for functionality better than The Home Depot. While it may not be the first place you think of to shop for chic decor picks, the iconic retailer boasts many of your favorite brands and stylish design accents at a price that is affordable and attainable. From high-quality rugs and sneaky storage solutions to faux plants that will fool even the proudest green thumb, The Home Depot has an ample selection of decor picks for homes big and small. Check out some of our favorite selects for small spaces below:

Storage stools are a clever solution for small spaces, and not just because you can hide things inside them. Sure, that's a great perk (especially if you have children's toys you'd like to squirrel away), but the fact that they can pinch-hit as side tables or extra seating when needed makes them a no-brainer addition.

Fiddle leaf fig trees are a classic with interior design enthusiasts, because they make a big, stylish statement. However, they've also earned a reputation for being especially tough to care for, leading many fiddle leaf fans to look into faux options to get the look without the hassle. This design from Naturae Decor is slightly more than 3' tall and a rich emerald green, bringing sophistication to any empty corner of your home.

If you call a small space home, chances are any storage solutions you have in place are also something you have to stare at day-in and day-out. Because of this, it's important to invest in storage options that are as pretty as they are practical. These wicker baskets are roomy enough to hide away anything you need corraled (think: books, charging cords, or even your partner's beloved gaming console) and look good while on display, too.
