Nesting tables are perfect for squeezing a lot of storage out of minimum space. Pull out the lower table when you need an extra surface for holding drinks or reading material, then tuck it away when you're done. On the lower shelf, a stylish fabric covered bin keeps DVDs accessible but contained.

Set a casual, family friendly mood for meal times by mixing and matching chair styles. In this dining room, a bench accommodates multiple people and takes up less space than a group of individual chairs. The pieces around the table can easily segue into the living room for hosting a crowd.

In an open living room, create subtle division with a shelving unit. This floor to ceiling bookshelf separates the open floor plan into two distinct rooms while offering ample display space.

Transform the often-unused space at the top of the stairs into a destination. Built in bench seating capitalizes on the sunny window of this second floor landing, creating a cozy reading retreat. Divided compartments under the bench cushion provide clever storage for reading material.

This bedroom uses the space under the bed for storage. But, rather than allowing that space to become a tangle of stuff, well made drawers with dividers keep clothes neat.

Most people slap a coat of white paint onto their ceiling and call it quits, but creative use of the space can reap room enlarging results. A beamed ceiling takes this room to new heights, while board and batten paneling adds substance to the room's sherbet color palette.

Turn a closet or nook into a work zone. In this space, drapery panels slide along a curtain rod to make it easy to conceal the clutter. Even without an architectural niche or bay, you can duplicate this effect by curtaining off an area across the width of a room just hang the drapes from a rod or thin wire suspended from the ceiling.

Opting for a narrow, shallow refrigerator netted more counter and shelf space in this compact kitchen. A tall cabinet with a mix of shelves and deep drawers maximizes storage space.

Get big style from a small space through careful design. Tall cabinets stretch to the ceiling, and a mixture of light woods and reflective stainless steel keeps the space clean and open.

Reclaim wasted space under a staircase for storage. Wide-trim molding turns these staggered shelves into a strong architectural feature. Baskets add eye pleasing texture as they keep linens and other kitchen odds and ends corralled.
