There are few things more frustrating than moving into a new home and realizing that it's not quite as spacious as you'd hoped. But if you're willing to do some remodeling, you can make the most of your limited square footage. Here are some tips for making the most of your small space.
When you have limited space, every inch counts. So instead of buying furniture that takes up a lot of room, look for furniture that serves multiple functions. For example, instead of purchasing a sofa and loveseat, buy an ottoman with storage underneath (this way, when guests come over they can put their feet up on it). Or if you don't have space for an armchair, buy two side chairs with storage underneath so they can be used as end tables when not in use.
Built-in storage solutions are the best way to maximize small spaces because they take up no additional floor area but still provide plenty of storage space for all your belongings. Consider adding built-ins under windows or around doors to store shoes or books within reach, or install shelves above closet doors
