There never seems to be enough room for storage and decorating a small space can be overwhelming – but we promise there’s a solution for everything. Here are some tips to help you keep your home tidy even when it doesn’t seem to be possible.

It might sound obvious, but if you don’t have a lot of floor space to work with, you should make the most of your wall space. Tall bookcases and high shelves, for example, can add storage space and visual height to a room.

Double-duty furniture is a brilliant solution for small spaces. Hollow ottomans, couches with storage and ottoman beds are some great pieces of furniture to help you store more items in a small room.

Even the tidiest of places can look cluttered if there’s too much visual information. Try picking a color palette according to the following rules: two light shades for the majority of the room and one darker accent color. The darker color will add visual interest to the area while the light shade will help visually open up the space.
