A home can easily become cluttered by furniture, so when shopping for different pieces, be aware of your room measurements.
Do not trust your mind’s eye, looks can be deceiving and mistakes can be very costly.
Do not assume that your room is small so must the furniture this is not always the case.
For example in a living room one large sofa may work much better than sofa and love seat. Many stores have room layouts as displays so have a look around before you make your final decision.
There are some excellent space saving items around, something like a nest of tables is invaluable for occasional use and very practical. Often you can buy dining room tables that have an extra drop down panel. That way when the extended family, are over it is very simple to accommodate extra people at the dinner table.
Sofa beds are an instant spare room, and no-one need to know they are so cleverly designed. Modern coffee tables double up as storage either for magazines or some will hold an awful lot of general clutter.
If you can use alcoves and old cupboards hidden storage is so useful for keeping a space clutter free, which means the furniture will shine without being overshadowed by a messy room.
You may have to go to a more specialized store but you are not the first person to be looking for furniture for a small space so it is out there waiting to be discovered.
