Today we are talking about small space living-—the good, the bad and how to make the most of your space. Joining me is Dani Sticka, founder of Imperfectly Tidy and host of the Imperfectly Tidy Podcast. Dani is also one of our SBO Partners in Portland, OR where she lives in a 1100 square foot house with her husband and twin 14 year old girls.
During our conversation we talked about both the pros and cons of small space living. From having less to clean and maintain, to getting creative with furniture that may have to serve multiple functions.
Dani opens up about what it was like to move a lot as a kid, and why she and her husband choose to stay in their small home for the past 17 years, rather than “upgrade” to something larger.
Dani shares some practical tips and advice for others who want to minimize clutter and maximize space when square footage is an issue.
- Reducing the amount of linens so that she has more space in smaller closets
- Avoiding bulk shopping to minimize having to store back stock items
- Using a butterfly leaf table to save on space when they are not entertaining
There is a level of intentionality that comes from living in smaller spaces, but it also allows you to prioritize quality time with the people in your home. Creating a cozy environment doesn’t have to mean cluttered.
