4 Tips For Making The Most Of A Small Space

How many of us have said “Oh, I wish I had a bigger bathroom.” Well, this little video takes the term ‘small space’ to a whole new level. Try 78 square feet!

Decorating a small space requires using strategies and techniques to make most of the space you have while it making it look more spacious and cozy. Use this collection of home designing ideas to help you make the most of your small spaces.

1. Create an illusion: It may seem like a design cliché - but as mentioned in the video mirrors really do work. Using mirrors helps small spaces look bigger because they reflect light and give the impression of an open space.

2. Add tons of light: Light makes a home feel warm and welcoming. Use several lamps or add recessed lighting throughout to create a warm glow and make your space feel bigger.

3. Use dramatic drapes and curtains: Hanging curtains from floor to ceiling will help elongate the wall and will create a cozy focal point in your space. Make the space look even bigger by hanging the
curtains outside the window frame or even on a wall where there are not windows.

4. Hide storage: Small spaces often have to function as a living space and home office or have limited storage, leaving unsightly bookcases and shelves. Use curtains to conceal bookcases and workspaces when not in use and choose tidy-looking storage boxes in the same color.

We hope this collection of home designing ideas help you to make the most of your small spaces. Of
course, small spaces are often the most challenging; consulting an interior designer may be your best bet.
