Decorating any space can certainly be a challenge. Finding the right furnishings and accessories that match your style and blend well together can take time and perseverance. Small spaces present their own unique challenges. On one hand the smaller space means you have less room to fill, but it means finding just the right pieces to fill it with so it doesn’t become over crowded.
Here are our top seven tips for decorating your small space.
Use smaller scale furniture that does not take up as much space in the room. Large furniture can overcrowd a smaller space making it look even smaller. Choosing smaller pieces will help the room appear bigger as well as make it easier to move around. A dainty accent chair, or two, are the perfect seating addition for a smaller space.
Use mirrors to give the illusion of space and to reflect light around the room. This will help make the room appear brighter and larger than it actually is. This is especially helpful in small rooms with limited window space that need more light.
Choose multipurpose furniture which you can use for a variety of functions. A table that doubles as a laptop desk, side table, and dining table is the perfect example of this.
Use white or neutral colors throughout the space. A neutral color palette ads to the minimalist feel and can help create an airy more open look in the room.
Try metal frame and glass furniture to open up the room. This makes a piece of furniture look like it is taking up less space than it actually is, creating an illusion of more space in the room.
Give minimalist style a try. Keeping your space clean and uncluttered can make any space appear larger. Choose key accent pieces to decorate your space instead of overdoing it with multiple little items that crowd the room.
Have folding chairs stashed away for when you have extra guests. You never know when friends or family might drop by. Be prepared with a few extra seats that are stylish yet functional hiding in a spare closet.
