Your Vision. Your Space.

Decorating small spaces

Decorating small spaces can be a challenge. The good news is you don’t have to compromise functionality or looks when designing your own space. If you are looking to design your small space so that is not only functional but it is also pleasing to the eye, here are 7 tips that will get the most out of your square footage:

1. Use small scale furniture appropriate for the space.

2. Don’t use dark paint colors. Use lighter paint colors or neutrals that will act as a blank canvas for artwork and furniture.

3. Use multipurpose furniture such as ottomans, which can be used as a coffee table, extra seating and storage- all at once!

4. Strategically place an oversized mirror on the wall. This will not only add some sparkle to your room but it will bring extra light and give you a sense of depth that will make your room appear larger.

5. De-clutter and stick to the essentials. Get rid of all the superfluous bric –a-brac and anything that is not adding to the functionality or look of the room. Less is more.

6. Create a feeling of height by bringing the eye upward. Paint or wallpaper your ceiling to make it  an interesting part of the design. This will drive the eyes upward, and create the illusion height, therefor making your space feel larger.
