1. Add a seat with storage
A seat with storage underneath can be a practical addition to maximise storage in small spaces. Mariana (@lifestylebymari) transformed an unused spot in her home into an inviting window nook by adding a seat with concealed storage.
Add some cafe style to your home with your own breakfast bar. Making great use of a small space, experienced Workshop member Rufaro (@diy_hausdesigns) built an outdoor breakfast bar in a corner of his patio.
Planter boxes can be a great way to add greenery and a feature to your backyard. While giving her small yard a makeover, Marlie (@marliemakesit) used planter boxes, pavers and thoughtful planting to turn an unused space into a garden oasis.
Relax and enjoy your backyard by adding a bench seat. Sandra (@sandy_d)'s easy and popular corner makeover included building a bench seat made using Besser blocks and a concrete planter. She then added paving slabs and stones around the seat, turning an empty backyard space into a cosy corner.
Console tables are long and narrow, suiting hallways and other tight spaces. Built in a couple of hours, Carol (@Carol_Prime)'s Acacia console table fits perfectly in an unused nook in her dining area and includes a storage shelf.
