Answers to Your Small Space Decorating Dilemmas
Don’t let a room’s small size hinder your decorating efforts. First look at all the ways that you can give the appearance of a bigger room, and then choose your accents wisely. Before you know it, your small space will make a big impression.
Keep Things Versatile
The more your furniture and accessories can serve double duty, the better. Choose a universally flattering, lift top coffee table that lets you store blankets, throws and pillows in it.
Pillows and throws look so nonchalant when tossed on a sofa or across a chair, but be strategic in a small space. Use them to add color where needed, or to cover up a not-so-favorite piece of furniture.
Make Things Disappear
Furniture that seems to ebb and flow with the occasion is like a magic trick. Choose end tables that nest, so that you have the table space when you need it, and it disappears when you don’t.
Go Over Your Head
When your footprint is small, be sure to utilize all your vertical space. Choose a tall, skinny multi-drawer cabinet over a shorter version as the right storage solution for small spaces.
Make Things Taller
Give the illusion of height in a small space by hanging drapes far above the window frame. It instantly makes the room feel taller and more open. Be sure to choose fabrics on the lighter side.
Play With Patterns
Floor rugs can be the right place in a small space to add a punch of color or dramatic pattern. Let your other decorating choices be more basic so that the room doesn’t look too busy.
