1. Purchase Multi-Functional Furniture
Last time, we talked about the importance of furniture that scales well to the room. But size isn’t all that matters! Function is just as important. In a small space, multi-functional furniture is going to be your best friend. Try to choose pieces that offer additional hidden storage, such as hollow ottomans with inner compartments, bed frames with built-in shelves or drawers, and couches that have enough underneath space to store cute wicker baskets. Having as much storage as possible will help you keep your home clutter-free and put-together!
2. Choose Big Statement Pieces Over Small Decorative Ones
It may seem counterintuitive to opt for larger decorations in a smaller space, but choosing several big statement pieces instead of, say, lots of smaller picture frames will help simplify the space and make it seem less chaotic and cluttered. Try to toss out the knick-knacks that only take up counter space, and shop around to find some larger pieces of art that you love. It’s okay to be choosy about what you hang up! With limited wall space, less is more.
3. Select Light, Airy Fabrics for Curtains
Some people will tell you not to have curtains at all in a small space, but we disagree. A well-selected, well-placed set of curtains will not only give you privacy (something that is important to consider if you’re thinking about moving into a mobile home park), but it can make the space seem larger than it is as well.
Choose floor-to-ceiling lengths and light-colored, breezy fabric. By choosing gauzier, almost translucent materials, you’ll be letting plenty of natural light in and creating the impression of airiness.
4. Light It Up
Few people realize how crucial lighting is for making or breaking a living space. Take every opportunity to allow natural light in, and take advantage of softer lamp light throughout the house. Overhead lights can cast ugly shadows and make rooms seem washed-out, sterile, or overly bright — with lamps, you have much more control over the ambiance of the space. Invest in standing lamps and desk lamps for rooms throughout your house, and see if you can connect them to the wall switches. It may take some getting used to at first, but soon you won’t even remember you have overhead lights!
