6 Extraordinary Space-Efficient Ideas for Home Design

The first thing you should know about when it comes to decorating a small home is that nothing is impossible. With just a little imagination and some practice, you’ll be able to turn your place into a cozy little home that’ll be completely functional. The golden rule that’ll make everything work is based on putting everything in its place after you’ve used it, to avoid spending hours on cleaning the mess – everything else is easy when you have the right idea.

A dining table and a pool table in one


Is your family spending enough quality time together? If you’re desperate and had several fails to gather everyone in one room to have some family fun, you should change the aspect of view because it’s difficult to entertain kids these days. The thing you’re missing is something that never goes out of style – a pool table. But, it’s difficult to place a large pool table in a small home – the solution is in having one hidden under your dining table. All you need to do is to remove the dining board and get ready to have some fun.

Turn a shelf in your kitchen into a garden

The most important thing for raising a healthy family is the quality of food. You don’t have to spend a fortune to buy completely organic food when you can have it in your kitchen. All you have to do is learn a few things about growing and nurturing plants and the time you invest in them will pay off before you know it – there will be some visible changes on your savings account. Nurturing plants isn’t as demanding as you might think – all they need is water and some fertilizer.

Three different ways to use curtains


When a family is living in a small place, it’s extremely difficult to provide privacy for everyone without having a feeling that you’re living in a prison. Take a few doors off – they are just a heavy load in your home – and replace them with curtains so your place can receive a refreshing, lighter and stylish appearance. But, if you use curtains in a whole new way by hanging them on a wall behind your bed, you’ll create an intimate and romantic atmosphere. Also, curtains aren’t just for indoors anymore – take them out on the balcony and you’ll turn it into your new favorite place where you can unwind.

Don’t leave the space underneath your staircase unused

A small home craves for light and simple staircases with storage room above and underneath. It’s completely on you to decide whether you want to leave it open or close it – but it should depend on what you want to do with that space. If you’re desperate for more storage room in order to place all the stuff that does not have a place in your home, than you should definitely close it – but if you want to use it for decorative purposes, leave it open. It could be a new great place for your home library.

Unconventional bulletin-boards (chandelier)


If you move the colorful post-it papers from a board that you already should be having in your home, and place them on a completely strange place, like your chandelier in the living room (that should be lowered down a bit for this experiment), it can turn out to be a playful decorative ornament that you’re place has been missing. But if you consider this project too extreme or impractical, you can move your bulletin board to a hallway mirror and you can be sure that every member of your family will be informed about upcoming events.

Your memories as a priceless home décor tools (clothespin)

Frame finished

If you want a positive atmosphere lingering in your home, you should think about displaying your cheerful memories in every corner of your home. An unusual way to do this is to hang old pictures on a rope that you can hang anywhere by using colorful clothespins. But, treating your memories as pieces of art and framing them will put them in a whole new perspective. To find an appropriate style and color of frames, you should consult a framing boutique and ask for professional help if you’re undecided about the best way to accent and highlight your memories.
