By now, you’ve likely heard of the rising tiny house or small house trend. Within the last decade, the nation’s desire to downsize their living quarters has grown. Designing a small space with a luxury feel can certainly have its challenges. But at White Webb, we find that the more challenging a project, the more fun we have working on it! There are many creative solutions that can help achieve a stunning design in even the smallest spaces.
Integrating multi-function furniture into your design can be a major space-saver! Many small dwellings lack a designated space for dining, similarly to this former clients’ apartment. In order to give our clients the dining space they needed, we designed this custom console table which transforms into a 6 person dining table.
Adding a lofted space to your layout can multiply your square footage and make for an interesting architectural detail. In this cottage design, we collaborated with Dennis Wedlick Architects to create a comfortable living space within a cozy footprint by introducing a lofted sitting area.
The easiest way to open up a small space is to eliminate any and all clutter. To maximize open floor space, it helps to minimize furniture in the room and incorporate built-in cabinetry to easily store away items when they’re not in use. In this entryway we designed for a former client, we kept the design simple and included multiple built-in storage units to hide away all of the clutter.
One of the biggest challenges in a small dwelling is lack of storage. In this Penthouse Loft design, we incorporated tall storage that was able to store an abundance of clothing while only occupying a small amount of floor space.
