Guest Picks: Small Spaces
I'd hang the largest size of this tropical print in a small room to make it feel like I'm right at the beach.
These modern wall shelves add style and function without taking up too much space.
Using cute bins (like vintage wire baskets) is my favorite way to keep things organized when I'm short on hidden storage space.
Bright, patterned textiles are a fun way to bring a small space to life.
I love how sleeper sofas can double as an extra bed for guests. This one also has a washable slipcover.
I think mirrors work in every room — especially in small spaces where they help reflect the light.
I love the idea of investing in a good dresser or cabinet that can provide tons of storage while also improving the look of the room.
Keep a few stackable stools (that also look good) on hand in case there's limited seating.
A slim bookshelf like this one provides a place to corral books and objects and creates a cozy atmosphere.
A pegboard is a great way to provide storage that can evolve as you need it.
Vintage step stools are great for small spaces because they can double as charming plant or book tables when not needed for reaching that top shelf.
Old letterpress drawers can be found just about anywhere, and they are perfect for hanging on the wall with little knickknacks on display.
I love these adjustable work lamps from Ikea because they clamp right on to the side of the desk and take up very little space.
I love shadow boxes, even though they might seem cheesy. They're perfect for displaying mementos on the wall instead of letting them fill up precious drawer space.
Big cushioned ottomans are a great choice for concealing storage and providing extra seating.
Ikea has tons of inexpensive adjustable wall shelf options, which are perfect for all spaces from small rooms to tiny closets.
These pretty bins hide what's inside from the front but have breezy wire sides.
Pretty chairs (even old and charming ones from a thrift shop) can always be kept handy for extra seating. They can even be used as side tables for blankets or books.
Big trunks can function as a small table or bench while also hiding storage. I love seeing them used as coffee tables.
Open on all sides and set on wheels for easy movement, this is perfect for a small room.Next: 10 Ways to Maximize a Small Space
