Small living has plenty of perks, but one issue that tiny house tenants may have is making the space feel like their own. With a smaller living space, it’s easy for your home to feel cluttered and uninspired. Luckily, we have the help of top interior designer Mat Sanders to give some advice on how to make a small space feel more spacious, inviting and stylish.

1. Utilize natural light

It’s a small space’s best friend.

2. Hang a mirror

Not only does it double the space, but you can also hang it across from a window to reflect light.

3. Don’t place it safe

Don’t shy away from bold patterns; add pattern and pops of color for some personality.

4. Multi-use furniture

For example, use an upholstered piece for a coffee table so it can double as seating.

5. Wall mount surfaces

If you don’t have room for nightstands or a traditional freestanding desk, wall mounting with be a life-saver.
