Luxurious Basement

Opulent accessories elevate a low-lit room.

Designer Nam Dang-Mitchell turned this mostly windowless basement into an inviting den with the help of decadent, metallic detailing and a black-and-white gallery wall. The low-lying sofa also helps to give the ceiling some extra height, making the room feel both cosy and spacious.

Rustic Kitchen Table

A slender island is perfect for a small kitchen.

A narrow workstation with an open base keeps a small kitchen from feeling crowded, and still provides functional dining and counter space. This extra-slim table in homeowner Bonnie Brooks' kitchen works with the space rather than against it, leaving plenty of room to spare.

Delicate Blooms

Small glass vases keep the focus on the flowers.

Slender flowers and foliage can add subtle decoration to a mantelpiece without overwhelming it. The clear glass vases on this mantel work especially well for small arrangements, keeping things light and airy.

Hidden Ottoman

Nest furniture to save space.

With a 520-square-foot bungalow to call home, design editor Margot Austin knows all about making the most of small spaces. In her living room, Austin chose ottomans that slide easily underneath her tall coffee table — only to be pulled out again for extra seating in a pinch.

Bright Hallway

Small shelves won't crowd a narrow foyer.

Without the space for a table, homeowners Magela Bruno and Marcelo Palacio installed a custom shelf above their radiator for much-needed storage. With its decorative details, the ledge adds pretty but practical charm to their tight entryway.
