A small home isn't a big problem if you have enough storage and clever organisation in place. The only thing is that deciding what solutions will work in your home can be difficult, unless you've seen them in action.

Well, that's where we come in as we've taken inspiration from some of the most talented interior designers out there in a bid to show you what you can do to make your small home a whole lot more workable. From bathroom storage through to brilliantly organised kitchens, we've got something for everyone here, so sit back, relax and drink in all these fabulous tips!

1. Glass-fronted kitchen top cupboards will give you easy storage, while making the room feel bigger

3. Wall-mounted bottle racks aren't just practical, they look amazing!

4. Make your storage a standout feature by opting for bright colours

5. Room divides can double up as fantastic display units

8. Pedestal-free bathroom suite items allow for more useful furniture, such as a towel stand

9. High level shelves won't instantly catch the eye but do offer a huge amount of extra organisation potential

10. Make use of every available inch! The spice jar shelf here is inspired

11. The large mirror here makes the room look huge, while the bench seating offers bags of storage potential underneath

12. Multifunctional furniture will be your new best friend in a small home. Shelves can go underneath anything!

13. Always consider what you absolutely need to house and work from there. Shoe racks in a closet will be a life and space saver

15. If you don't have room to build shelves on your walls, how about building them in?

16. The cut out towel rail here is fantastic. Talk about working with the room!

17. In a small living room, keep storage to the sides and perhaps just have a small side table for essentials, such as the remote and your cup of tea

18. White cupboards will make a small kitchen feel bigger, while smaller top cupboards will still offer lots of storage without drowning the room

19. Store large, bulky items right up near the ceiling to keep them out of the way

20. Transform an available corner into a swish home office with some simple built-in shelves and a slim length of worktop

21. Your sofa could be a potential goldmine of storage space if you add some drawers underneath it

22. To make the most of your dining room, a super slim table is a great idea and will look so modern

23. Kids' rooms are notorious for being clutter dens, so make storage fun with multiple hidey holes, boxes and even high beds that can house things underneath

24. Always try to combine functionalities. This desk/bedside table is fantastic

25. A small bathroom can be a fabulous wet room so don't box it out into separate functions. Don't forget handy corner shelves for all your toiletries
