Small homes shouldn't be seen as a big problem, but rather, a HUGE opportunity for decorating in a more innovative and clever way. Ask any interior designer and they'll tell you that you can absolutely enjoy refined styling, extensive storage and piquant little surprising features that larger homes have, up until now, enjoyed more frequently. If you don't believe us then you're in for a shock, as we're about to give you some brilliant tips for every room in a small home, from a cute kitchen through to a bijou bedroom. Let's get started!

1. Don't plump for small furniture, as it could amplify modest proportions! Choose larger pieces that make comfort the focal point.

2. Use mirrors to add perceived space to small spaces and install them opposite a window to really make the most of your natural light.

3. Don't obscure the natural light in your small rooms, so choose pared back window dressings that can be opened up during the day.

4. Have a purge and remove any unnecessary items. A touch of minimalism really does help to create the feeling of more space and airiness.

5. Build kitchen cabinets up to the ceiling and you'll create a seamless aesthetic while also garnering yourself as much storage as possible.

6. Build storage around your needs, as appose to adding more than you need and then trying to fill it with more things than you need. Less can be more!

7. Put dead space to new use and a small home will seem so much bigger and more up to the task of accommodating your family. Your under-stairs space is ripe for transformation!

8. Use textures instead of patterns to add a little variety to your walls, as large patterns can be a little claustrophobic. Natural materials give you all the definition you need.

9. Don't be constrained by walls, as you can turn wall niches into extra living space! A niche home office is a fantastic use of a free area!

10. Adopt a multifunctional approach, by layering what you use your rooms for and you'll soon see that a small room can be so much more useful!

11. Use corners more effectively, by choosing furniture pieces that fit directly into them. Large corner sofas are perfect for small living rooms!

12. Use the vertical space to your advantage by installing lighting and furniture that really amplifies it! Long pendulum lights are an incredible idea!

13. Build in, not out, with handy wall alcove shelves and you'll get a huge amount of extra storage, without requiring any sacrifice of floor space! Perfect!

14. Add interest with colour pops and a small room will come to life! Just one piece of bright or eye-catching furniture will be all you need!

15. Unlock hidden storage potential by thinking of ways to make use of wasted areas. Under your bed is premium real estate, in terms of integrated storage solutions.

16. Go bespoke and commission a carpenter to build you a window seat! A great way to garner extra seating, hidden storage and a beautiful focal point, we love this idea!
