Small Space Living Hacks That Can Work in Any Size Home

These tiny hacks will change your life.

Downsizing is the new upgrade. Tiny homes are a national phenomenon, and the lifestyle associated with going small(er) means hacking your way to living large in smaller spaces.

Problem: No Garden

No garden (or no yard at all)? No problem! This DIY wall planter from Lana Red Studio gives you plenty of greenery, without taking up any counter or floor space. Utilize an empty wall for this vertical garden and your space will instantly feel more peaceful.

Problem: Nowhere To Do You Make-Up

Having a vanity to do your makeup is pretty much a luxury in tiny spaces. Use a tabletop plank like the picture above, for a beauty station that takes up practically no room.

Problem: That Overflowing Bag Of Old Clothes

Keeping any fabric scraps around? If you love them almost enough to use them, but feel like they’re not quite ready for prime time, use Design Love Fest’s all-natural dyeing technique to revive them for the Instagram age. Plus, it can give mismatched pieces a cohesive look.

Problem: Bulky Bookcases

Adjustable legs are the new birds, if bloggers are any indication. They’re being put on just about anything, from bookcases to pieces of plywood. Old Brand New blogger Dabito’s humble bench is just one great example of the trend’s enduring practicality.

Problem: Too Many To-Do Lists

A super-simple jumbo notepad with just a dash of beaded panache makes for a simple, sleek command center in this office with A Pair and A Spare DIY.

Problem: A Cluttered Entryway

With just leather scraps, one trip to Lowe’s and a little ingenuity, The Jungalow blogger Justina Blakeney was able to make these versatile — and eye-catching — wall pockets.
