When you have a small room mirrors are a great way to give the illusion of more space. A large mirror on the floor against a wall can really help as you are getting the floor reflection as well as from the walls. Alternatively place a large circular mirror on a wall, preferably near to a window. This will help with reflecting the light and give the space a more spacious airy feel. Check out our Large Round Mirror With Gold Surround.
2. Media Unit Furniture Idea
A compact media unit is a piece of furniture that can provide many functions in a small home. You really only need a surface for your TV and some storage underneath, either shelving or cupboards. Keeping the unit small means you create more floor space for other items like plants and side tables. Avoiding large sideboards or media units will benefit the space and leave it less cluttered and enclosed. There is nothing stopping you from having a number of different pieces of furniture in a small room, you just need to make them compact and considered.
3. Small Shelving Ideas
Shelving is a great way to help with storage, at the same time keeping floor space clear. A narrow shelving unit could be the answer, especially if you have the wall space and the height. Built-in shelving in alcoves is always going to be a winner. Utilizing the rooms features and maximizing its use is always going to result in a better final design. A really good way to utilize a wall is to keep the shelving or cupboards high up. Attach them near to the ceiling for ultimate space-saving. This will work well in a corridor or bedroom.
4. Small Sofa Home Furniture Ideas
With limited space, the sofa will need to take priority in your living room. But it doesn't need to be a big one, and realistically will only need to be enough for those that live there. Consider a 2 seater rather than a 3 seater. This way you may be able to fit in an armchair and another small table. A small L-shape sofa would be ideal for a corner or snug giving you a bit more comfort, but without compromising the floor space.
5. Stools & Side Tables
In addition to your main sofa or armchairs, consider using stools for extra seating options. A footstool or pouffe like our Set Of 2 Gold Geometric Stool/ Side Tables that can double up as a seat is ideal for when you have guests. When working with a small space you need to consider how the room is being used and what furniture you need for the majority of the time. On occasions, can your room accommodate others without changing the aesthetic of what you have created?

Perhaps you have a side table or coffee table with a removable top and added storage inside. Look out for pieces of furniture that will give you the extra functionality, as it will help to create a cleaner looking space.
8. Small Dining Table Furniture Ideas
Whether you have a dining table in the kitchen or in your living room, consider what you can do to maximize the space. Opt for a fold-down table in a small kitchen, that can be accessed when needed, and use fold-up chairs to help with storage. A small round table with an extendable middle panel is an ideal piece of furniture. Again, as with the other pieces of furniture we have mentioned, it is all about flexibility.
9. Handy Bathroom Storage

Being able to hide bathroom products from sight will keep a modern clean feeling.
