Take heed of these 5 style rules to nail small space living.


If space is super-tight, opt for furniture that earns its stripes – from hidden fitted storage or ingenious dual-purpose pieces to space-saving extendable options.


Give a small space a focal point by papering a wallbehind a unit or shelving.


Every home has its own clutter hotspot, so include plenty of small-scale storage solutions to tame all those random odds and ends.


Free-up floor space by opting for wall-mounted shelves, tabletops and wall units.

Leaving floors clear creates an illusion of space and will make a room feel bigger.


Take storage up a level with a slimline ladder shelf or tiered shelving unit.

They work in any room, space or alcove – simply prop up against a wall or shift around a room.
