Me and my wife are so excited to be finally moving into a tiny home that we can finally call our own! We've severely outgrown our apartment and my son would really be happy to stop sleeping in his sisters pink room:) really happy the house has a nice size living room ,dining room ,and kitchen for us to tweak, improve and make our own. Our style is modern clean with some vintage and industrial touches throughout. We need help in four areas, living room ,dining room ,kitchen ,and basement so I will post them separately room by room. Looking for color choices lighting options even furniture. Also design ideas to help best use the limited space and also make things feel bigger rather than smaller. Definitely don't have the deepest pockets so prices need to be modest at best. I'm splurging on some things because I feel it makes the difference. First room up dining room i'll supply some pictures see if you guys have any creative ideas!! My mother makes curtains so I have a great hook up in that area so I can choose custom fabric and have her make some nice curtains. My wife also came up with a good idea to replace two of the side chairs that face out of the room in the dining room with a bench it gives an extra seat it also alleviates some claustrophobia in the traffic area and really helps with a small rooms feng shui. So we're probably going with nice curtains and a bench with matching upholstery to tie the room together but no clue on color scheme or fabric yet. I appreciate any help or advice you guys can give
