Small homes don't have to be anti-social ones if you get your seating solution right, which is exactly what we're here to help with today. 

Interior designers know the value of stealthy, clever seating arrangements that allow you to get the most function and enjoyment from your home as possible, so we've taken inspiration from some of their fabulous home design ideas.

From clever kitchen stools through to fold-away figments of our design imagination, we have some amazing ideas to show you so, get comfy and let's talk seating!

1. Long countertops are perfect locations for some stools that will slip right underneath

2. Floor mats are actually really comfortable and can be popped away when not needed

3. A flat-pack chair? You're not dreaming! Perfect for when unexpected guests arrive

6. Rotating stools are great for easy conversation in tight spaces. We love this modern retro version!

7. Ultra-low furniture will make a small space feel larger as it will emphasise the height

8. Your little ones can get in on the action too, especially with a hanging crib seat
