DIY Furniture Design Ideas for Small Living Spaces

A generation ago, young professionals aspired to move out of the cities, purchasing homes in the suburbs. These days, Millennials are increasingly insistent on remaining in major metropolitan areas indefinitely. They enjoy the cultural and social verve of the big city, as well as the added convenience of public transit and other amenities.


Millennials also prize professional mobility, changing jobs more often than their Boomer counterparts.  Proximity to an urban hub often translates to more opportunity for professional advancement, and limits the long commute times that conflict with Millennial interest in work-life balance.

What does this mean for interior design? Living space is at a premium in urban areas, especially in trendy neighborhoods. A single tenant or a couple may need to squeeze into a few hundred square feet of apartment space, or fit a home and office into a single open-plan living area!

The drive to make the most of a cramped studio or efficiency apartment has reinvigorated an industry dedicated to inventive storage and furniture solutions. In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the most exciting modular, multipurpose and space-saving products on the market.

Stylish and highly versatile, these pieces are a must for the trendy space-saving renter.
