Maybe your home has always been small. Or maybe it's seemed to 'shrink' over the years. Either way, these savvy buys are perfect for homes with less impressive proportions, helping you clear the clutter and maximise space. They're all taken from the latest Ideal Home collection at Very, so grab them while stocks last!
The handy drawer unit
It's all too easy to pigeonhole pieces of furniture. Take this bedside table, for example. The name suggests it needs to go next to a bed – but actually, it can live pretty much anywhere, so why not use one in a living room? As it has a drawer, it doubles as somewhere to hide clutter, making it more versatile than a simple side table.
The versatile wardrobe
The same goes for this wardrobe. You could use it a place to hang clothes, but it can also serve as a mini cloakroom in a hallway. Or as a utility cupboard. It's available in this smart grey or classic white, and has offers a lot of storage space within a relatively small footprint.
The diddy dining table
The decline of the dining table has been widely reported – with Kirstie Allsopp declaring the trend 'dangerous'. So if you're looking to reintroduce one to your home – and get family life back on track in the process – this neat design is perfect.
It's small but perfectly formed – the table measuring just over 120cm wide. You could push it up against the wall of a kitchen and store the four chairs elsewhere until meal times, so it can also double as a prep space or somewhere for the kids to do their homework.
The clutter-busting baskets
Nothing makes a space look smaller than clutter, so keep things tidy with this set of baskets. When guests are on the way, use them to gather up everything from rogue toys to the TV remote.
Aah, that's so much better!
