5 Tips to Make the Most of Limited Square Footage

Making the most of a small living space requires thoughtful planning and design choices. Here at Hewing Haus, we’ve already made some thoughtfully designed building choices to make our smaller footprint homes feel spacious. However, here are a few tips to help you maximize the comfort and functionality of yourHewing Haus:

Multi-functional Furniture:

Choose furniture pieces that serve multiple purposes. For example, a sofa bed can provide seating during the day and transform into a comfortable bed at night. Look for storage ottomans or coffee tables with hidden compartments to maximize storage space.


Vertical Storage:

Utilize vertical space by incorporating tall bookshelves, wall-mounted cabinets, or floating shelves. This way, you can keep your belongings organized without them taking up valuable floor space.


Efficient Storage Solutions:

Invest in smart storage solutions that optimize every inch of your home. Use under-bed storage containers, hanging organizers in closets, and drawer dividers to maximize storage capacity and keep things tidy.


Outdoor Living:

If you have access to an outdoor area, extend your living space by creating an inviting outdoor oasis. Set up a small patio or balcony with comfortable seating, potted plants, and cozy lighting to enjoy the fresh air and expand your overall living area.


Functional Zones:

Create distinct functional zones within your space. Use rugs, room dividers, or furniture arrangements to define sleeping, working, dining, and relaxing areas. This helps visually separate different activities and make the space more organized.


Remember, the key to small living is an efficient use of space paired with smart design choices. With careful planning and thoughtful organization, you can enjoy the comforts of modern living in a smaller square footage without sacrificing comfort and functionality.
