5 items you don’t need in a small space

Sometimes it is difficult to choose which furniture is essential in a small space; you don’t want to it to be too cluttered or too overwhelming. Luckily, Yanic Simard came by to help give us tips on different pieces that we don’t necessarily need in a space. Here are his top 5!

A dining table
This seems a little extreme at first, but when you think about it, a dining table and dining chairs can really take up a lot of space! Try utilizing what you already have, such a breakfast bar or kitchen island, to use as your new dining space.

Large electronics
It may be tempting to buy the biggest speakers in the store to get the best sound quality, but the reality is that there are a lot of products on the market that deliver the same quality at a fraction of the size. Perhaps you can use your tablet as your main television screen and also as your main computer. With so many multi-purpose tech tools, it’s easy to downsize.

A large area rug
Large area rugs can really overwhelm a space whether it’s by having too loud of a colour or too busy of a print. If you need to divide your space with an area rug, try going with a smaller scale rug or a rug with a unique shape to it.

A coffee table
Coffee tables can easily take up too much space in an area and aren’t always a necessity. What you can do instead is find a smaller table that also doubles as a storage space. Doing so will make the most out of using up that space.

A sofa
This one might shock you, but a sofa truly is the biggest piece of all! Try using a sectional sofa with movable pieces, or replace it all together with a couple of smaller chairs.

    Hello, great ideas! Ditching and switching my dresser for a tall thin pantry also saved lots of space.
