In this day and age, people are moving into smaller and smaller spaces. Learning how to make the most out of the space you have is essential. Here are a couple of ideas for you:
- Place a mirror on the wall. If placed correctly, this can almost double the size of your room, visually at least. For example, in a dining room, place a mirror on one of the walls next to the dining room table. Any body standing up and looking in the mirror will see a room larger than it is
- Don’t buy super thick curtains or drapes. Shop around for elegant curtains. Large, puffy curtains can make a room seem cosy, which isn’t necessarily always a good thing in small rooms. (But, if this is the effect you’re going for, by all means go for it).
- Don’t buy the largest size in your furniture. For example, don’t get a king size bed when you won’t have space to open the cupboard doors.
- Keep your theme simple, and keep it to one theme. Don’t make the room look too busy. Read the article about focal points for more info…
