Where can you get smart ideas to make the most of your home if it isn’t very big?

There is a wealth of information out there to give you ideas for your home.
Your local shops probably sell loads of magazines every month and the bookshops maybe have some books that are real works of art in themselves.

In an effort to entice and inspire you many of the images presented can be difficult to relate to ordinary houses in the UK which, let’s be honest, are not usually very big.

I have pages on both Pinterest and Houzz where I pick up ideas that I think fit more easily into our modest sized homes. Even if the rooms presented are not small, there will be a feature that I think works well in a small space.
If you are looking for inspiration for your next project, take a look at my pages on Houzz and Pinterest (excert below).
