8 Ways to live in a small house

Although small houses are cozy, they can feel cramped. Here are some smart tips to help you stay sane in a small home.

Add a fold-up table – Buy a dining table that will fold onto the wall and where the chairs can be hung on the walls above it. When your dining table is not in use, you can enjoy a large kitchen space for cooking.

Add storage under the stairs – Build drawers, shelves, and cabinets to use the space under the stairs.

A king-size bed – Pieces that will help you relax will make you feel like you have more space.

Install a skylight – More light will always make a space look larger and provide more views of the outdoors.

Punch out a wall – Removing a wall and opening up your space will make for a larger room and the feel of more space.

Include mirrors – Sliding mirrors and reflective paint will help to make a room look larger.

Borrow – If you don’t need a lawnmower, leaf blower, and a pressure washer, ask your family and neighbors if you can borrow it from time to time. Not only will this save you a lot of space, but it will also be a lot cheaper.

Bring in plants – Adding plants like ferns, palms, and cactuses in your living spaces will brighten a space and give you the illusion of more space.
