Smaller living spaces may be hard to find, but there are still plenty of options for those looking to live in small spaces with style and class. Take a look at some of the most inspiring and beautiful homes that are around 400ish square feet or less!
Small/ Narrow Bedrooms
Narrow bedrooms can be both cozy and functional if designed correctly. Consider bunk beds or a daybed with trundle for sleeping arrangements in small spaces. Make use of vertical storage solutions to free up floor space, and don’t forget about hidden storage under the bed.
Choose furniture that can serve multiple purposes, such as a dresser that doubles as a TV stand. Paint the walls a light color to help make the room feel larger and add plenty of lighting to keep things bright. Finally, personalize the space with photos and art to make it feel like home.

Small Kitchens on a Budget
A small yard shouldn’t stop you from having the backyard of your dreams. With a little creativity, you can make the most of your outdoor space. Here are some ideas to get you started
If your kitchen is very small it’s easy to focus on how limited it looks or on how difficult it is for people (including yourself) to navigate between appliances and food preparation surfaces.
You might even start dreaming about an entire new kitchen, which can cost a lot of money. But there are simple solutions that will transform your space into something far more open and enjoyable without breaking your budget or making any major changes like replacing appliances or remodeling walls.Here’s what you need:
Shower Design for Small Bathrooms
For small bathrooms, one popular shower design is to install a shower pan with a built-in seat. This can save space and still provide you with a place to sit while you shower. Another idea is to forgo the shower door altogether and just have a curtain. This can make your bathroom feel more open and airy. If you have the space, a small vanity or sink outside of the shower area can also be helpful in saving space. Whatever design you choose, make sure it fits your needs and the needs of your family.
Storage and Laundry Solutions
Although small in square footage, these nine inspiring homes make the most of their space with smart storage and laundry solutions. In the kitchen, hidden cabinets and space-saving appliances leave room for a dining area or living space. Built-in shelving and under-bed storage keep bedrooms feeling open and airy. And creative laundry solutions like combination washer-dryers and hidden hampers help keep even the smallest spaces tidy. With a little creativity, even the tiniest home can feel like a palace.
Backyard Ideas for Smaller Yards
Just because you have a smaller yard doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful, functional outdoor space. Here are some backyard ideas for smaller yards that will help you make the most of what you have to work with.
1) Build an elevated deck – One of the best ways to get more out of your small yard is by building an elevated deck. An elevated deck makes it easy to create a social area in your yard without taking up any additional space!
2) Use Vertical Garden – If you’re feeling really ambitious, go ahead and try this one- just don’t be surprised if it takes up most of your time and energy! A vertical garden is going to take up much less room than an in-ground garden but requires careful upkeep and attention.
3) Plant Large Trees – Another way to utilize limited space is by planting large trees that take up lots of room but provide many benefits!
