Living in a small home can make you creative in a hurry. If there’s barely a closet — let alone a spare room — organizing your space in an efficient way that still makes you feel at home can be quite a challenge. For many apartment dwellers, there isn’t the luxury of separate rooms and each piece of furniture needs to serve multiple uses.

We’ve already covered some of the best ways to create storage when you’re living in a tiny space, and fortunately, there are more and more unique furniture pieces that make small-space living more of a joy than a pain. Things like lightweight objects that are easy to move, a tool that can make anything a table, furniture that has multiple functions, and storage that’s a snap to assemble and disassemble make it fun to do more with less — and will also appeal to the design-obsessed.

Below, see 24 ways to make small-space living way easier without sacrificing great design.

    • 1 Try bookcases and storage that adjust to fit your stuff.

The REK bookcase from Reinier de Jong is perfect for the growing book collection and comes in both child and grown-up sizes.
    • 2 Make a table out of anything.

When Kyle Hoff and Alex O’Dell put their project on Kickstarter, they received more than 10 times their goal. The Floyd Leg (really, a set of four legs available in two heights) uses a simple clamp that lets you turn any surface into a table or desk. And you can dismantle it just as easily if you need to free up space or are moving to a new, even smaller apartment.
