A small home can be the bugbear of anyone but, if you know how to decorate in a savvy and space-saving way, you might actually find that a smaller property can be a beautiful and usable one.

We've found eight homes that have made clever decorating look incredibly simple, thanks to guiding hands from talented interior designers

Take a look and see if we can inspire you to add a few sneaky inches to your bathroom storage or hidden niches to your bedroom, and marvel at the masses of extra space you could be enjoying!

1. Built-in bookshelves offer plenty of display potential without impacting on the footprint of your home

2. Adding drawers to a platform could really open up a world of storage and are also so subtle. What an amazing idea!

3. For easy guest accommodation, a hidden bed (along the lines of a Murphy bed) will be fantastic. Simply hide it away in the wall when you don't need it

4. Sinks normally take up a lot of room but this corner version makes great use of what could have been a wasted area

5. Hiding away appliances, such as microwaves, in wall niches will leave your worktop feeling bigger and make your kitchen far more practical

6. When you don't have any extra space on the floor, perhaps you should consider building up? This high-level seating platform is fabulous

7. Even small bedrooms need a bit of storage, so this corner cabinet is ideal as it takes up as little room as possible while still being handy

8. In homes with more than one floor, a staircase is obviously necessary but can be such a cumbersome addition. A sleek, minimal incarnation will minimise its impact whilst offering storage potential underneath
