Living in a small space can sometimes feel very cramped, and it can feel like it’s impossible to make the space feel nice and attractive, but that really is not the case.
Whether you are living in one o the country’s many great manufactured home parks, a small apartment, or condo, there are tons of things you can do to make the most of your tiny home, so you can enjoy it to the max.

- Mirror, mirror on the wall
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the cleverest of them all? You are, with your savvy understanding of this classic decorator’s trick! Mirrors are great at reflecting light around the room, and this helps to give the illusion of space. So, hang a large mirror on the wall or lean a tall one against the corner to instantly open up your space. Magic? Definitely!
- The vertical limit
When floor space is at a premium, think up, up, up! Make your walls work overtime with floating shelves, wall-mounted desks, or even a climbing garden. The sky (or rather, the ceiling) is the limit when it comes to vertical storage and decoration.
- Color me light
Channel your inner Picasso and create a masterpiece with light colors. Whites, pastels, or light greys on walls, floors, and furniture can make your room feel breezy and spacious. Save the bold, darker colors for accent pieces and you’ll be painting a perfect picture in no time!
- Furniture that works double duty
Are you ready to meet the superheroes of small space living? Introducing multi-purpose furniture! Think beds with built-in storage, ottomans that serve as coffee tables, or desks that can transform into dining tables. These pieces are the Clark Kents of the furniture world: unassuming at first glance but super when you need them most!
- The less is more lifestyle
Embrace the Zen art of minimalism if you want to make the most of your small space. Be ruthless in your decluttering efforts, keeping only what you truly love and need. Fewer possessions mean less clutter and more space. Plus, it makes dusting a whole lot easier!
- Light it up
Good lighting is like the perfect Instagram filter for your room. It brightens up dark corners, makes the space look larger, and instantly creates a warm, welcoming vibe. Mix and match overhead lights, floor lamps, table lamps, and even fairy lights to create the perfect mood.
- Be curtain clever
Your windows are your tiny home’s best friend. Maximize natural light by hanging your curtains as high and wide as possible. Choose sheer, light-colored curtains to let the sunlight flood in during the day, creating an illusion of depth and spaciousness.
- Zone it out
Divide and conquer! Create distinct zones in your space – a living area, sleeping area, and work area, for instance. You can do this using rugs, room dividers, or even different paint colors. It’s like having multiple rooms in one!
Your tiny space, as you can see, can be an amazing place!
