#7. Sliding Walls

Use sliding walls in place of doors to streamline space, and separate larger areas into smaller zones. In this nice example from Dwell.com, a sliding door separates the master bedroom from the living room and also doubles as a backdrop for a projector.

#8. Fold Down Furniture to Save Space

We love this project from Shanty2chic to make a diy Murphy desk that folds down from the wall. You could do this kind of thing for a breakfast table too if you’re short of space in the kitchen.

#9. Extra Kitchen Storage

If you have a narrow space in your kitchen that isn’t being used, then you could make this diy food storage unit like this idea from Classyclutter.net who made a unit to pull in and out to use the narrow unused space beside the fridge. They have full instructions for the project.

#10. Laundry Cupboard

If you only have a small space for your washing machine and dryer, this tip from Onekinddesign is neat, stack your appliances and then have shelving to the side for your detergents etc.
