  1. Start with the bed

    Place the bed against one wall, leaving about 2 feet for walking around the bed. Look for a bookcase headboard for extra storage space. Place a small nightstand close to the side of the bed. Alternate ideas for nightstands include a stack of books or boxes or a set of nesting tables.

  2. Balance the room with a dresser

    Place the dresser or chest of drawers on the wall opposite the bed to create a sense of balance in the room. Tall chests of drawers provide plenty of storage room and take up less room. If there is a television in the room, and it fits, place it on the dresser to optimize space.

  3. Utilize wall space

    Shelves create plenty of extra space, and they are not just for books. Line shelves with movies, music and games. Mount the television on the wall, if possible.

  4. Choose multiple-purpose items

    Look for pieces that serve more than one purpose. Decorative baskets or stackable boxes hide storage while looking nice. Look for thin boxes and bins that fit underneath the bed to store seasonal items and shoes.

    What are some small kitchen design ideas?

    A:

    A good kitchen design aims to maximize available space while not making the room feel overcrowded. This efficiency is usually achieved by building up or down with cabinets, opening the kitchen up so that it flows into adjacent rooms, and eliminating unnecessary appliances and surfaces. Paint and lighting adjustments don't add space to a kitchen, but they can produce the illusion that the room is larger than it actually is.
