Small spaces and unconventional homes have unique needs and requirements often not met by regular furniture sizings or shop found designs. When space is at a minimum, storage becomes vital, adaptability an advantage and every millimetre counts. For those living in moving homes like boats and vans, movement is a factor. For many small or unusual spaces the walls may not be straight and there may be a need for quick access to cables or pipework or underfloor spaces to be taken into consideration also.
At Everything Goes we design with these factors in mind to bring you furniture that fits and we’re interested to hear your thoughts, experiences and needs.
Everything Goes was born out of the needs experienced by life on narrowboats. All the furniture in our initial range is designed with (but not limited to) canal/river boats and narrowboats in mind. This takes into account the sloping walls, the small and limited space, the need for storage, movability, easy assembly and the ability to de-assemble for essential boat maintenance, access under floors and pipework, etc. It is designed with adaptability in mind, wanting to give you more control over what you get and we are very excited to increase our options for materials, finishes and fits as we go.
We always love your feedback and ideas so please connect on Facebook and/or Instagram and get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions.

Chosen your furniture and want to make sure it’s going to fit? Here are some pointers to help.
A few simple tips and hints.
- ‘Measure twice cut once’ as the saying goes – we recommend you measure 2 or 3 times before ordering.
- Remember walls and floors are seldom straight, so if something has got to fit in a certain space be sure to find the smallest dimension it needs to fit into and give yourself a cm or so leeway
- Our designs are largely made to take into account obstructions like pipework, but do check our dimensions against your space to be sure it’ll fit comfortably.
- Our designs come flat-packed to make access to small spaces and delivery easier.
- If you need to measure the angle of a wall – there are a few methods out there to do this . One simple one is to take a piece of cardboard with straight sides. Hold it so one straight edge is flat on the floor and then fold the upright edge until it is at the same angle as the wall. You may need to cut out the bottom corner if there are pipes or other obstructions along the wall. Once you are happy that you have a cardboard copy profile of your wall to floor then you can take your protractor to measure the angle. If necessary use the cardboard to trace the lines of your angle onto another sheet of paper so that you can extend them to meet each other (e.g. if you have had to cut a section out as outlined above).
- Again – always good to repeat and measure twice to be sure that you get nice accurate measurements.
