After the success of last year’s project, which asked designers to come up with clever ways to use space under the stairs, this year’s brief is to come up with another small space wonder. The Great British Box Room Competition is looking for diverse, creative and clever concepts to transform the smallest rooms in our homes that are often left unused, forgotten or, worse still, as a dumping ground.

Whether your big idea for your box room is something a little out of the ordinary, or you’ve got a clever concept to make the most of the space, think interesting and unexpected, using colour, materials and patterns to push boundaries and achieve something impressive despite the small area you’ve got to work with.
