Check out these 8 ways to squeeze furniture into your small space below to make your space functional and stylish at the same time without sacrificing something. Enjoy!
1. Skinny Console
Create a custom table that’s as narrow as your room demands with dining table legs and few boards just like in the picture above. You can paint the board with the color that match well with your space.
2. Armchair Perch

3. Flat Plate Rack
Hung rails show off dishes and platters while storing them securely is a good option if a cabinet or baker’s rack is too much for your kitchen.

Try planting a long table for lamps, houseplants, or even extra storage behind your coach. This move multiplies your surface space when you don’t have a wall to spare.
5. Floating Nightstand
A hardware-store corbel and craft-store pine board come together to create the cutest teeny table that doesn’t crowd your bedroom space.
