“Houston, we have a problem. We have no space for all this furniture we want to fit into our small home.”
Well, no worries my friend. Hopefully that will be less of a problem after surfing through some of my favorite designs in side and coffee tables for small spaces.
A s point of reference for where I even have the least bit of authority to speak on this topic: we live in a…well…a weird home.
This is what I mean: If you look at the square footage (2750 sq ft) you’d think we’d have plenty of space. (And honestly we really do—the layout is just super funky) After all we have 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The problem with that is that a large percentage of that square footage is walk-in closets in four of the five bedrooms that could literally qualify as bedrooms themselves if they had windows.
This leaves little room in the area that we use the most—the combined living and dining space on the lower level of the home.
I think we’ve gone through a billion arrangements in trying to figure out how to make a small space feel large and I’ve settled for now on using our ottoman as a coffee table which isn’t a bad deal if you ask me but I’ve had some requests recently on Instagram for suggestions on small space living and I thought since I’m actually living that life, it’d be fun to offer some products and items that have helped me make that lifestyle a bit easier along the way.
I love that the above options offer something for just about everyone whether your style is more casual and relaxed or a bit more traditional and classic. There’s something out there for everyone.
