Which, speaking of, as a New York City renter myself, I know firsthand the struggles of furnishing and shopping for a less-than-palatial home. Sure, most stores nowadays might direct you to petite or small-space-specific sections of their sites, but not every offering actually hits the right scaled-down dimensions, even just for fitting big-ticket pieces within your door frame itself (don’t forget to measure, people!). Not only that, but layout schemes can get particularly tricky, too, demanding a certain degree of decorating creativity overall. Plain and simple, designing a small house, apartment, or specific room is hard!
That’s why, below, I rounded up a few of my very favorite small-space furniture and decor finds, accumulated from both my professional and personal browsing. Think compact sofas, accent chairs, desks, and smart two-in-one pieces via brands like West Elm, Target, Albany Park, and more. If you’re low on square footage, count on these 12 functional ideas to accommodate even the teeniest of bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and hallways (plus doorways!) in style — which is my forte, after all.
