Alison Mazurek has mastered the art of maximizing limited space. Here’s how she does it

Adaptable furniture is a lifesaver Rather than a coffee table, consider a side table that can be moved around the house, Alison says. “Wall beds are a small space’s best friend.”
3. Keep clutter to a minimum Alison’s rule? “Don’t buy something new unless you are willing to let go of something you currently own.”
4. Use your vertical space Put plants on bookcases, hang art high and mount your TV. Alison also recommends investing in some decent wall shelves.
5. Share with friends Young children need many things, but often for only a few months. If your kid no longer fits into a pair of shoes or has outgrown a toy, give it to a friend.
