Small Space Decoration
Small space decoration doesn’t have to be hard. Here are a few helpful hints to get you started.
Just because you live in a small space it doesn’t mean that you have to use small furniture. Sometimes using large pieces when decorating small spaces can actually make a room look larger. Space your furniture out a bit and use wise storage options to get rid of clutter. This will help give the illusion of a bigger space.
Using a lot of small pieces of furniture can make it look like you’re trying to cram too much in and the room can end up look cluttered and cramped. The key to keep this from happening is to use large furniture, but just use less of it.
Custom cabinets, wall built-ins and shelving options help free up space in small rooms. Use a pop of color here and there to give your small space character and design.
In a tiny living room rather than trying to fit in a sofa, chairs, ottoman, coffee table and side tables, try using a sofa, a single table or bench, and perhaps a single side chair. In a studio apartment or small space rental use a futon that doubles as a sleeping area. If you have the space you can even include a large armoire for storage. Get rid of excess small pieces and instead include only what you’ll actually use. Then try to open up the space with an oversized mirror on one wall (if you can get it across from a window so much the better).
Use color and accents to make the room appear bigger than it is. For more help on color and accents check out this article:
It sounds crazy but it works. Before trying it out, draw up a floor plan on some graph paper or use an online room planner to experiment with furniture placement. If you want to look more into small design and decor here is a great YouTube video.
