Breezy Bedroom

Painted white floors brighten up a small space.

We all know that white lightens a room, but a quick paint job can make your space look larger, too. The rustic, whitewashed floors in this pint-sized bedroom create an especially light and airy look.

Streamlined Tabletop

Clean lines help to elevate a small office.

An elegant floating workspace with a level top makes this tiny, attic office appear both chic and spacious. Better yet, the desk's built-in storage cleverly hides other essential — but often messy — appliances and stationery.

Vintage Boxes

A simple DIY side table from salvaged finds.

When there's no room for a standard side table, but you still need a spot for a lamp or a drink, take a cue from designers Maxime Vandal and Richard Ouellette who stacked two narrow antique crates to create a custom, vintage-look table that's perfect for this small space.

Smart Kitchen Island Storage

A bright idea for a compact kitchen.

Extra cupboards under the overhang of this kitchen island are a clever spot to store less-used items and keep counters clutter-free.

Small White Powder Room

A compact space with a refined look.

Parisian designer Stéphane Chamard infused his Toronto Victorian with chic touches, and followed in the European tradition of making the most of every inch. In his powder room, a bright white palette, minimalist decor and table-style vanity make the small space feel roomier, while an above-counter sink makes a sculptural statement.
