If you didn't know already, I live on my own in a poky studio flat - the only thing I can afford solo on a not-super-well-paid admin wage (post grad salary? pfft sure). Basically, the kitchen, living room and bedroom all make up one one smallish room with a bathroom separately and storage is the word of the day when it comes to keeping it from looking like a small bombsite as opposed to somewhere someone actually lives. I had a rearrange recently as my mirror was halfway behind my TV - making it a pain in the arse to use - so I moved around my comics and books to make space for it on the top of my shorter storage shelves. To pretty up the area a bit I moved my hairdryer over by the mirror and added this sweet tray I got from Dunelm for my birthday as well as a cheap storage jar from ASDA. Add my (not so small) collection of hair, face and body stuff and you end up with a little DIY vanity 'table'. How do you make use of small living spaces?
