Tips for Decorating a Small Living Space

Every home should feel comfortable and inviting. This is why it is important to show off your personality with the right furniture and accessories. If you have a small living space, showing off may seem nearly impossible; however, the right pieces and design ideas can help any home feel more spacious and welcoming. Follow these tips to decorate your small living space and show off your sense of style:

Look for Smaller Furniture

Bigger is not always better—especially when it comes to furniture. Large pieces take up a lot of space and can easily make a room feel overcrowded. Selecting smaller pieces is a simple way to make size room feel and appear larger than it is. Choose furniture that will work for your space, style preferences, and hobbies.

Find Innovative Storage

One of the hardest aspects of decorating a small living space is balancing style with storage. If you have too much furniture, you may not have room to store items. Solve this problem by looking for innovative pieces that allow you to store items while also showing off your style. A coffee table with drawers is a good example.

Choose Pieces with Multiple Uses

Multi-functional furniture is a must for anyone living in a small space. These pieces make it easy to create two or more rooms in just one part of your home. Look for desks that can also serve as tables, seats that provide storage, and other pieces that can be used multiple ways.

Avoid Dark Colors

The colors in your home help determine how spacious each room feels. Dark colors may be appealing, but they can also make a space appear smaller and more crowded. Stick to furniture with lighter colors and keep the darker shades for accessories.
