You may live in a small space for reasons of sustainability, location and/or financial freedom. Whether your home is small out of necessity or choice, there are ways to utilize the space to live larger in your abode.
Buy small-space furniture
Although it may be difficult to find furniture, there are stores and furniture lines specifically dedicated to life in condos or other small spaces. Make sure to purchase multi-functional pieces to get the most out of your space.
Keep it clean
Try keeping clutter to a minimum. Clearing counter tops, refrigerator and dressers will enhance long lines making your small space look as large as possible.
Make multi-function spaces
Every inch counts in your small space. Giving rooms multiple uses will allow you to do more with less. Tuck your office into a quiet nook in the living room or kitchen. Add plenty of secret storage areas to your living room for toys, art supplies or board games!
Dark colour schemes will make your small space seem smaller. Instead, use lighter neutrals on walls, furnishings and window treatments to reflect light. Having simple, yet minimal accessories will also make the space feel larger.
