When decorating a small room, it may seem like a struggle to make the space look and feel larger than it is while also meeting basic functional needs. By following a few important tips, it is possible to furnish smaller spaces so that they are functional and do not feel cramped.
Functional Storage Solutions
Storage solutions can be decorative, and they can be a true benefit to the décor in the room. An ottoman with hidden storage, an entertainment center with cabinets and shelves or a tall bookshelf that can hold many of the items that are needed in the room are perfect furniture pieces.
Decorate The Space Vertically
Did you know it's not ideal to decorate a smaller room horizontally. In a smaller space, decorating the space vertically by using bookshelves, storage cabinets and other features that rise above the ground rather than that sprawl across the ground can be beneficial.
Use Lighter Colors
Darker colors used in a smaller room can make the space feel closed off and cramped. Using lighter colors can brighten the space and make it seem more airy. While using shades of white and beige throughout a space may not be ideal in all rooms, these can be incorporated into various aspects of the décor to improve the spacious feel of the room.
Smaller spaces can be challenging to decorating, but there are different tricks and tips that can be used to make the space look and feel larger than it is. Some tips may improve the functional use of the space, and others may simply play tricks on the way to create the illusion of space. All can be used together to create the feeling of a larger, more inviting room.
