It's impossible to run out of reasons to love small space living as there are a lot of pros and hardly any cons—it's easier to maintain, it's less expensive, encourages family bonding, and forces you to pare down your belongings to the basic necessities. 

However, since you're working with limited room, decorating and finding storage can be quite challenging. The solution to your woes? Finding pieces that serve more purposes than one. Here are five examples you can consider incorporating into your home: 

Adjustable Lamp

Good lighting is essential but floor lamps tend to take up a lot of space. Trade in your tall beam for a built-in and extendable one instead. With this piece, you're able to position it close to where you're seated without taking up extra room. 

Storage Above The Headboard

Double up your closet space by adding a few cabinets over your headboard. Paint the doors with the same color as your walls to keep the look streamlined and to conceal it from the naked eye.

Sofa Bed

From couch by day to cozy bed by night time—what's not to love about that? If you already have a bed that you use, you can reserve this spot as a sleeping area for days when you have family and friends staying over. 

Expandable dining table

Turn your dining room for four into a space for eight with just a few easy maneuvers. This piece can also function well as an office desk or even a meeting table for those who work from home.

Drawers under the bed 

 

 

Another great spot to extend your closet is through drawers under your bed. It's a great place to keep clothing that is not in season or extras like spare towels and bathrobes.
