Think your home is too small for an office + dining area? Justina Blakeney proves that tiny house interiors can still have it all!

Read on for Justina’s 3 essential tips, refuse to let a small space hold you back, and make the most out of your home!

Tiny Home w/ Multifunctional Office/Dining Space

Amanda’s house is SMALL. And when I say small, I mean that it used to be a car garage. But just because her space is small doesn’t mean she can’t have all the perks!

When Amanda said she wanted a comfy desk with storage, AND that she wanted some kind of dining table situation, I immediately thought of the Pencil Desk. It’s small but the way that it protrudes from the wall means that it can easily be used as a table for two while dining *and* as a desk.

#1. Get Multifunctional

“Use furniture that has built-in storage. Look for desks/tables with multiple drawers, a storage ottoman, or a bed with stowaway space underneath!”

#2. Look Up

“Use the height of your space. Build up walls, use high bookcases and floating shelves to add additional storage!”

#3. Paint + Create New Space

“In Amanda’s studio, even though everything is in one room, I divided the space with paint so that the kitchen, living room and bedroom all feel separated by the colors on the wall. Try using paint to accentuate different areas in your space and don’t be afraid of color.”

Hi Heather — we do sell it, we’re just out at the moment! It should reappear on the site soon and be in-stock again this summer (looks like July).
