We know, us Houzz-users are mostly ordinary people living in ordinary houses. But all pictures are great for getting ideas. There are lots of small showcases though, examples on "how to decorate a tiny house", which are normal houses to most of us. Try search options like "small room" or "tiny house" or the surface of the room/house. Or just post your condo in the design dilemma's here, so designers and enthusiasts can help you.

Most photos shown on this website are designed by professionals, so they have a more 'upscale' feel and act as inspiration for people who are looking for ideas on their own projects. If I wanted to see some 'ordinary' rooms I would just search online elsewhere.

Most of the homes I work on have normal ceiling heights and aren't super spacious! Check out some of those images. It really comes down to using pieces in your smaller space that are the right scale. If the sofa/light fixture/etc is too big it makes your room look cramped. There are also some tricks with color, placement and pattern/texture that designers use to make your eye move around the space for a more open feeling.

Just find rooms you like and choose small pieces of them to make your home yours. Not all the rooms are over the top on houzz- Ed has shown you some great options. What do you like? Do you have some pictures to share with us of your home....we can help!
