How to get the most out of your small space
Many people assume you have to choose small scale furniture and minimal decorative accessories but that isn't entirely true. The key is more about limiting the number of bigger scale pieces, and making sure that many of the furnishings and accessories serve more than one function.
Here are a few examples of how to choose better options in a limited space. A loveseat is a good choice for a scaled down sofa, and even better if it offers storage in the arm rests. Trunks make ideal coffee tables because they are usually a little smaller and offer storage as well. On your walls, opt for one large focal point and keep surrounding accessories minimal. This way your small space can make a bold statement without feeling too congested.
Always look for opportunities to add storage and you will always have extra space as a result. Walls offer vertical space that can be a great opportunity to get something up off the floor and out of the way. Just be sure to make sure the function overrides the visual space it consumes. The more functions your deco and furniture can perform, the more valuable it is to have in a small space, and the more space it allows for you to more about freely from room to room.
