Downsizing after your children have left the nest? Here are a few ideas for making the most out of your new - smaller - space: THIN IS IN
Modern technology has made it easier to get more into small spaces. A flat screen television can hang on the wall, eliminating the need for an entertainment unit.
LAP IT UP
Using a laptop instead of a desktop computer allows you to transform any area into a workstation, whether it be the kitchen table or a comfy chair.
IN THE KITCHEN
If you have a small kitchen you might have to forego some large appliances. Try a compact French press, rather than a counter-hogging coffee maker. And nix the cumbersome stand mixer for a handheld model.
ON THE DOCK
Ditch that giant stereo system for a compact docking station for your MP3 player. You won’t be sacrificing space or sound quality.
