Small Spaces? No Big Deal.

Styling small spaces can seem like a big challenge. Space is limited so there may be more pressure to pick exactly what is needed. It may feel like you’re under a microscope since each design element will be less and therefore more noticeable. We are here for assurance that working with less space can be done, and the results will be bigger and better than expected. 

What a View!

Windows can be a huge help when working with small spaces. Because the natural light and feeling of expansion beyond the walls will enhance the ambiance. Light control and privacy can be achieved by opting for sheer shades. The fabric will diffuse the light but keep the view. They also close up to maintain control of privacy.

Tip: Furniture with a low profile will enhance the length of the room. It will take away the bulk of the space by allowing the eye to travel.

Make Smaller Rooms

We don’t actually suggest making the rooms themselves smaller. Open concept floor plans many times leave space as one large room. This doesn’t allow for privacy. Room dividers are a good solution to divide the space to have more intimate parts. Therefore, depending on the time of day or if hosting, the layout can be altered to fit the occasion. They can be opened back to an open single room whenever you want!

Tip: Find little “pockets” of space in an open floor concept to enjoy the space on a more intimate scale.

Make Use of the Space

An area used for dining is often one of the top small spaces. Generally a breakfast nook or an eat-in kitchen barstool surface is what we’re referring to. Instead of settling on a 4-top table, increase the seats available with built-ins. First, create more seats. And then a more cozy atmosphere.

Create Choices

One room can become multi-purpose. Your living room can also be the family room or the media room. With the right window coverings it doesn’t matter if it’s day or night. The room can be properly transformed with blackout shades to enjoy a family movie even on a Saturday afternoon hours after enjoying a cup of coffee and sunshine.

Tip: Go for a large print or artwork for your home’s small spaces. They create dimension and are a better option over smaller frames.

A Carefully Curated Corner

It’s okay if your home doesn’t have a designated office. Make a special corner for work in your bedroom, living room, or any other quiet area.

Tip: When finding a spot to set up an office area look to be near a window. The natural light will make you more productive.
