Smart Designs to Maximize Small Spaces

Living in a city can often mean trading in your spacious home for a cramped apartment, but that doesn’t mean you have to forego your personal space!  Here are few innovative tips to maximize small spaces while remaining trendy.
Create simple demarcations using household items such as a book shelf, curtain, or glass. This will help you designate different areas to sleep, eat, or relax in – without feeling like you are stuck in bed!
Outfit your small space with larger, more uniform pieces, rather than a hodgepodge of small and mix-matched furniture. Believe it or not- decorating a room with less can make it feel twice its size!
Find multipurpose furniture that maximizes functionality, such as a deep sofa that can double as a guest bed. It can help you stay economically savvy while still making the most of your space! We love comfortable seating arrangements that also function as storage areas.
Stick to neutral colored walls and furniture to help your space look grander, while adding in brightly colored decorative accents such as pillows, a carpet, wall pictures, or book case embellishments.  These small details will make your space pop! If you want to add a twist, paint one wall a bright color while keeping the rest of your space more subtle—this will draw the eye to one area, separating it from the rest. Need a color suggestion?

Draw the eye upward with hanging light fixtures and furniture that extends from the top to bottom of the wall. This will give the illusion of a taller space, while also adding more light to brighten the room.
