Living Space

Take Stock

Take inventory of everything in your home and decide what is a necessity. In saying that, it is ok to hold on to non- essential things that bring you joy but it’s important that they have a space and aren’t in the way. Holding on to unnecessary items can make any space seem cluttered and untidy.

By taking stock and streamlining your possessions you minimize clutter and you’ll have less to store and organize. This will ultimately make any size space feel larger.

Let Light in

Keep window décor to a minimum in a small space, by adding natural light you immediately make a space seem much larger. Getting rid of heavy draperies can create a drastic change to a room. If your small spaces are lacking in natural light you can create a similar feel to the room by using artificial lights. A great tip to give any space more ambiance and set a mood is to layer the lighting.

Made to Measure

When it comes to smaller spaces having your furniture made to measure can be a worthwhile investment. When furniture is made to measure you are utilizing the available space efficiently and as the furniture is often customizable you can make it a double-duty solution.

Color Choices

A change in wall color is the easiest and most affordable methods of drastically changing a space. White is a tried and true space enhancing method and by being clever with other soft neutral colors you can create a chic and cozy area.

If you’re feeling a little bolder, a dark color like black is often used to expand and add depth to a space. A pop of color or pattern can add character to a space but be careful with larger prints as they can have a dwarfing effect and make a tiny space feel even smaller.
