Prepasted wallpaper that you just wet and hang = awesome. I've used one from Blue Mountain.

Thank you for this post. I have come across a number of comments that are not so sympathetic to those who might be living in poorer/worse conditions. I don't think they mean to be snobby, but just really don't understand the realities for someone earning minimum wage or someone whose income goes straight to rent, utilities, bills and debt payments, who is living in less than ideal quarters who can't afford elegant solutions and need AT to provide us with helpful tips/ideas.

I finally found a small cabinet with glass doors, kind of a small hutch - I store my shoes in it, sort of to #1's effect. I LOVE it!

Oh my GOD, neighbourhood is such a big priority. I fooled myself into thinking that where I live wasn't that big of a deal, I'm still in the city and I could bike anywhere I wanted to. I moved into a somewhat okay apartment in the shitty part of the city and I hated every second of it. For the apartment I'm at now, I made sure groceries, vet, convenience store, restaurants and cafes are all very close, and I am so much happier!!

This is neat. I live by myself and I cook, but I don't need all the cabinet space in my small kitchen. I'd rather use a few cabinets and maximize the space within with neat organizing tools than spread out my stuff in all that dead space...

Amazing! Looks beautiful. I wouldn't ever leave my violin on display like that, it will destroy the frame and the strings!

Had to remove my closet door because the room is so small and I needed every square footage. I've been meaning to hang a curtain, but I'm kinda used to the open closet storage now.

A great point about maximizing cabinet space. I've got too many cabinets for a single person and it'd be great to install space saving tools so I can consolidate all my kitchen items and use the remaining cabinets for additional storage.


5 Subtle But Clever Ways to Make a Small Space More Livable

I moved recently from an apartment with a dining area separate from the kitchen into a smaller space with just a bedroom and a kitchen, and I had to decide whether I should take my dining table and 4 chairs - they are sort of a tight fit. At the end I decided that entertaining the few friends I have is important to me and I kept the whole set! Down the road I may replace the bulky vintage table with something lighter, but my friends do appreciate having proper seating and a proper table when they come over.

this is one of my favourites! Might steal the overlarge flower and book print with white furniture idea.

I think the effect is more of a "salon" wall, rather than "art gallery". People want to display their smaller artworks, prints, and photographs to reflect their personalities.

I have a tiny kitchen and a very narrow hallway (too narrow to have anything on the wall) connecting to the bedroom, which is the only space I can display my collection. I feel happy waking up to my favourite pieces of artwork or photographs :)

My bathroom has one big open shelving, and I don't have a lot of stuff, so I hated how it looks like a poorly stocked drug store. Thanks for this article, I'll try out some of these tips.

Agreed. 400 sq ft is huge. I wish AT would do a post on 'extremely' small spaces.
