Whether you’re living in a small space because of financial limitations, family size or are at a transitional period in your life, Andy Suvalsky knows how to turn a small area into a dream home for little money.

Suvalsky, an interior designer who’s been featured on HGTV, in the New York Times and the Robb Report, believes that everyone’s home should express both who they are and who they strive to be. Suvalsky shared his tips on living large in small spaces with WalletPop.

Develop a Design Plan

Visually map out a layout goal. Check out potential furniture buys online to get the exact measurements. Then, use construction paper to cut and size the items to see how they’ll fit together. “This will help you avoid costly mistakes of pieces that ultimately don’t fit together or don’t fit in the elevator to your apartment,” Suvalsky said.

For extra small spots, double up furniture function to help save room and cash. A large coffee table can also pose as a dining table and he recommends buying a round-shaped one because it allows for more seating options. Suvalsky suggests hunting for a unique table base at flea markets and placing a ¼ inch piece of thick glass on top for a custom look.
