How to live large when you’ve got limited square footage.
1. Use a buffet or a long and low dresser as your media console for added storage.
2. Hang a canopy over the bed to visually separate the sleeping quarters.
3. Use pretty baskets to hide not-so-pretty clutter.
4. Install a divider screen that makes your bed feel separate, but still allows light to pass through.
5. Choose light fixtures that don’t take up valuable floor space, like plug-in sconces or pendants.
6. Opt for a small-scale sofa (like this loveseat) in a punchy color.
7. Got an overstuffed pantry? Use a tension rod to hang a panel of fabric that complements your existing decor.
8. Incorporate multifunctional pieces of furniture, like a filing-cabinet-turned-nightstand.
9. Choose a desk that you can use as a vanity *and* a workspace.
10. Invest in a modular sofa with a handy ottoman that can be used as a coffee table or transformed into a sectional.
11. Use acrylic furniture to make the studio feel open and airy.
12. Lean a floor mirror against the wall to bounce more light into the space.
13. Give yourself additional counter space (and storage) with a kitchen cart on castors.
14. Easily corral cooking utensils using rails and S-hooks.
15. Maximize vertical storage with tall and narrow shelving units.
16. Optimize flow with a round dining table, as there are no sharp corners to dodge.
17. Spruce up a boring white wall with removable decals or wallpaper.
