If you’re on the property ladder these days you’re doing well, and with the housing market across the globe in a slightly fragile state, many of us are happy to make do rather than take a step into the unknown.

So if you’re into making the best of where you live, especially if it’s a bit smaller than your dream home, let us recommend apartmenttherapy.com.

This is a US site that is full of brilliant styling ideas and trends for homes of all types and sizes. But what we really like are the sections on budget living and small spaces. These are where you’ll find the real ingenuity of the average American homeowner coming to the fore, as they share tips and tricks on living within your limits, be they spatial or financial.

The renovation pages are also a great source of DIY advice, with the potential to save you even more cash.

If you have a useful, funny, or just plain weird website that you want to tell us about, drop us a line using our feedback form.
