Choose furniture that is both moveable and lightweight.

Make use of your vertical space.

Living in the city means putting up with a lot of things—from the pollution, horrendous traffic, to the limited space you live in.

But living in small spaces can also unleash your creativity. More so, if you’re a student who has to transform the space into a conducive environment for study and play. Here are some tips on how to turn small space into a creative and productive area for growing minds.


A small space can be more of a joy than pain if you choose the right kind of furniture. Choose furniture that is both moveable and lightweight. Look for furniture that can double as storage and has multiple functions. An example would be a bookcase that adjusts to the size of your growing library.


Use dividers to give the appearance of separate zones without consuming too much space. Colorful tints can define zones in small areas. This is most useful when you are sharing space with other people. Use lightweight material so that the light can still pass through and give your place a homey feel.

Make use of vertical space. Fill those empty spaces up there but don’t overdo it. Piling up too many objects in high areas may become a hazard especially in small spaces.

Plants offer a dash of green.

Start caring for plants. Not only do these create a relaxing vibe, but they also help purify the air. A dash of green always does the trick of cooling down the mind after a long day in school,
