10 Buys That Will Transform Your Small Space
Are you looking for some ideas to transform your small place? Trulia came up with great ideas to help you with your DIY projects.
From closet space to bathrooms, you could even get down and dirty and build these yourself. There is nothing wrong with a little DIY project.
1. The utility cart
Utility carts are perfect for storage and can doubled as end tables. Because they are on wheels, they can be moved to wherever the party is. IKEA’s Raskog cart is a classic that’s beloved by style bloggers.
2. Sheepskin throws
A sheepskin throw is in every fashion magazine. The stylish throw gives your home a trendy look. They are an easy, inexpensive way to add a touch of luxe to just about any space. Talk about fancy!
3. Poufs and floor pillows
Have a few poufs or floor pillows on hand for impromptu get-togethers. When not in use, they can easily be stashed under a table or stacked in a corner.
Mirrors make your space instantly feel lighter and more open. Mix a few with ornate frames into a gallery wall, hang one in a narrow hallway, or lean a floor-length mirror in a dark corner to brighten things up in a flash.
5. The floating shelf
Floating shelves are a great way to save space. You can hang them to hold books or frames and you’ve got yourself floor space for a little couch or table.
6. Potted plants
Potted plants make your place feel less awkward because they fill that empty space.
7. Lidded baskets
A chic little lidded basket will hide all manner of sins — anything from shoes to mailing supplies. Stash a set of baskets under a coffee table or a bench, or stylishly stack a few in an unused corner.
8. A classic bench
An entryway bench gives you that feeling of complete. You can use it to sit on when putting your shoes on right next to the front door.
9. Wall-mounted storage
This wall art organizes your life. From your mail to setting up it as a bar, this purchase is worth it.
10. Lacquered boxes
A perfect storage solution in a kitchen or office, colorful lacquered boxes will stylishly hold tea bags, office supplies, batteries, or sewing supplies, and they’re pretty enough to stack on a counter.
All of these hacks will make your life a bit easier! Try them out for yourself.
