We're constantly being reminded of the benefits of small homes. They're more economical, they're cosier, and they're far easier to clean! However, small houses can also present a host of problems, chief among them being the question of where to place your furniture. It can often feel like there's nowhere near enough space, which leads to reckless purchasing and design mistakes.

There is a way out, though. Check out these seven innovative furniture solutions, and make the most of those tiny spaces!

1. A kitchen in the family room

Who could have guessed that the living room would be transformed into a kitchen cupboard when opened? It's small but perfectly formed, and has enough room to whip up a romantic meal for two. How clever!

Ask a professional to design something similar for your home!

2. A tiny corner workspace

If you have no room for a study, transform a corner of your home into an office instead. As long as there's a wifi connection and a desk, you're good to go! 

Best of all, the desk can be flipped up and tucked away to create more space and less clutter.

3. A makeshift reading room

Who needs walls when you can have bookcases? Simple white shelves like the ones pictured are a perfect way to divide up rooms and create private spaces.

4. The fit anywhere pantry

This ingenious kitchen cupboard could literally go anywhere in the home. There's enough room for all of your dry foods, a microwave, condiments and cutlery. If you're feeling brave, you could even fit a fridge into the design!

5. A secret bedroom

When the black curtains are pulled shut, no one could ever guess what lies behind them. Pull them back, however, and a gorgeously cosy bedroom is revealed. We'd love to spend a lazy Sunday chilling in this spot with Netflix and a good book!

6. A multi-functional kids room

There's no excuse for clutter in this clever kids room. A bunk bed provides a safe and comfortable sleeping space, while underneath there's a sofa bed for socialising, playtime, and impromptu sleepovers.

7. A sneaky stair wardrobe

Save space in your home by putting that under-stair space to good use. Install a slide-out wardrobe and shoe rack which can be tucked away out of sight when not in use. The extra bonus of this design is that you no longer have to find a place for a clunky wardrobe in your bedroom—genius!


Put hinges on a classy mirror and turn it into a door that hides your accessory cupboard. This idea is cheap and easy to copy—all you need is a spare alcove, a mirror, and a set of hinges! Innovative, no?
