Living in a small home can be challenging but it doesn’t have to be frustrating.  With a little bit of creative organization and use of space, your tiny home will still have a big heart. Here are 10 ideas to get you started.

 1. Mirror, Mirror On the Wall

 Adding a large mirror to a room welcomes additional sunlight and gives the appearance of having more space.  Nothing wrong with tricking our brains a little bit to maintain some sanity and remain the fairest of them all.   Small Space Organization, How to Make The Most of Small Spaces, How to Make Small Spaces Look Huge, Small Space Decorating Tips and Tricks, How to Make Your Small Apartment Feel Huge, Clutter Free Living, Clutter Reducing Tips and Tricks

4. Feeling Lofty

I was fortunate enough to have a loft in my bedroom as a child and haven’t stopped loving them ever since.  Adding a loft to your tiny home makes perfect sense to free up needed space and it’ll leave you feeling pretty high and lofty.

Continuing with the theme of using high spaces, here’s another great idea from Tiny House Swoon.  Just add some extra shelving above doors and other places to add room for storage and/or decor.

6. Shelf Life

The space under the stairs is one of the most underused areas of the house.  Rather than having a flat wall and closet, your home might benefit from turning the staircase into shelving space.  Idea found here.

7. Ceiling The Deal

Here’s a fantastic idea if you’re limited on garage storage.  Open up some floor space by adding a sliding tote system to your garage ceiling.  Installation guide found on The Family Handyman.

8. Stow-Away

What another creative use of stair space!  Who needs a bulky linen closet when you can store your sheets and blankets under the stair?

9. Sugar and Spice

Utilize that awkward gap between your fridge and wall by installing a sliding spice and can rack.  This really does make “everything nice” in small kitchen spaces.  Idea from Huffington Post.

10. Step Inside

Yet another use of stair space for added storage.  I love how it gives double purpose to something that’s already there!  Thanks to Tiny House Swoon for the stair-iffic idea.
