  • Furniture transformers: 

Say goodbye to single-purpose furniture! Matt took my clunky coffee table and turned it into a space-saving hero. He added these hidden compartments that were like tiny Narnia-esque portals, perfect for storing blankets, board games, you name it! Poof! Just like that, it became a coffee table, toy chest, and even occasional guest seating – all in one. He even built a Murphy bed that folded neatly into the wall, like magic. During the day, it transformed into a home office, and at night, it became a comfy sleeping haven. Talk about maximizing functionality without sacrificing style!

  • Mirrors, mirrors on the wall: 

Matt wasn't shy about using a little illusion to our advantage. He strategically placed a large mirror opposite the window, and bam! The room instantly felt bigger thanks to the reflected natural light. He even put a smaller mirror above the hallway console, and it bounced light around like a disco ball, further amplifying the feeling of spaciousness. It was like a funhouse for grown-ups, but way more useful!

  • Sunshine is the best medicine: 

Matt wasn't just a carpenter; he was a daylight enthusiast, too! Gone were the heavy curtains that blocked both the good vibes and the sunlight, potentially causing the wood warp. In came light, airy blinds that let the sunshine flood the rooms like a warm hug, without the risk of damaging the wood with harsh UV rays. He even convinced me to trim back some overgrown shrubs outside, and suddenly, the interior was bathed in a warm, filtered glow. The extra light made the space feel airier, more inviting, and honestly, just plain cheerful. It was like opening a door to a brighter, healthier, and wood-safe home!

  • Declutter like a boss:, 

Okay, this wasn't technically carpentry, but Matt's parting words stuck with me. He basically told me to declutter with the ferocity of a dragon chasing hoarders and let me tell you, he wasn't wrong. Donating that stack of unread self-help books I bought in a moment of misguided optimism? Magical. Saying goodbye to that chipped coffee mug collection from every tourist trap I ever visited? Liberating. It was like Marie Kondo had taken a flamethrower to my emotional baggage, and all that was left was this feeling of lightness, of spaciousness that had nothing to do with square footage. It was like I could finally breathe in my own home. Magical. Saying goodbye to that chipped coffee mug collection from every tourist trap I ever visited? Letting go felt like a revelation. It was like Marie Kondo had unleashed a decluttering dragon on my emotional baggage, leaving only a lightness in its wake. A spaciousness that had nothing to do with square footage, but with finally being able to breathe freely in my own home. It was magical and amazing. 

Selling off that chipped mug collection from every tourist trap? Let me tell you, it was pure liberation! Tossing each one felt like chucking an anchor of dusty memories overboard. No more visual noise, just the calming peace of a lighter heart and a mind free from obligation. Turns out, sometimes less really is more, especially when it comes to chipped souvenirs and the weight they carry.

The Big Reveal:

The dust settled, the tools went quiet, and the sweet smell of new wood filled the air. My tiny terrace house had undergone a magical makeover! Gone were the cramped days, replaced by a light, breezy, and surprisingly spacious haven.

It wasn't just the clever carpentry tricks that did the magic. Decluttering my life, like tossing out dusty books and chipped souvenirs, had created a mental and physical space I barely knew existed. Now, I could breathe deeply, move without bumping into things, and even host friends without feeling like sardines! It was like my home finally exhaled, and I could too.

Remember, a little magic can work wonders. So, grab your tools (and maybe a trash bag), and get ready to transform your home into a haven of spaciousness and joy!
