FURNITURE STORAGE SOLUTIONS FOR SMALL SPACES


Storage is always a problem when moving into a small space, and as much as we may try to downsize our possessions, there are still always things that we need and want to keep. 

Having living room furniture that doubles as storage seems almost essential to me.

A small space means that you probably don't have an entry hall, but who needs one when you can create the illusion of one as beautiful as this.

Are you loving the new boho trend in decorating? This colorful small living room will definitely appeal to you. I love the console table behind the couch. It offers a place for reading lamps if you don't have room for end tables, a shelf for books, and the large space underneath is perfect for storage baskets.

Trunks are perfect storage solutions in small spaces. They can be used beside a bed as a nightstand,

or as a coffee table in the livingroom.

An armoire has so many uses. Many small spaces also have tiny kitchens with limited cabinet space. An armoire makes a perfect pantry, and with curtains covering the glass it could be used anywhere in your small space.

  5. I have a small cottage and it's both a challenge and pleasure to decorate. It takes a bit more creativity, but I enjoy the process! That first picture is dreamy...off to see your Pinterest board now! :)
