This post will focus on small space decorating ideas for you to implement if you live in a small space.
Many people struggle with decorating a small space home. They often don’t know what size furniture to buy. Or how to get the most out of each room.
I love the mixture of colors in the above photo. Whites, spring greens, and a touch of orange. (I think orange is starting to grow on me!)
The simple jute rug grounds the furniture that is arranged around it.
Focusing On Decorating A Small Home:
I’m focusing on small space decorating with these photos, all from BH&G.
If your living room space is limited, you could choose an ottoman instead of a larger coffee table.
An ottoman can achieve two things: Be a place for seating as well as storage.
This little space looks snug and cozy in front of the fireplace.
This room automatically appears more spacious due to the very large window behind the couch.
The two chairs with varying blue stripes give it a cohesive and somewhat dramatic feel.
Arrange The Furniture Close Together For Coziness:
Having the furniture arranged in this way creates a feeling of coziness.
Here is another living space with small cubed tables instead of a large coffee table.
If you find you need more room for guests coming over, you could break up the cubed tables and move them around.
I love all the patterns in this photo. The tall shelf works and doesn’t overwhelm the space because it is open. Also, it draws the eye up, which makes the room appear more spacious.
Not Having Window Treatments To Let In Light:
The open windows above the painting give the illusion of more height in the room. Thus the room seems bigger than it actually is.
The use of vertical space is very important in smaller homes.
Here we have yet another coffee table alternative. The ideas are endless.
Preferring Smaller Quarters:
There are so many ways to live large in a small space. I actually prefer the coziness of smaller quarters. It makes you choose to keep what you love most and do away with the rest.
Just because your space is small doesn’t mean you’re stuck with small pieces of furniture.
Better to have a few big pieces that make a statement rather than a cluster of smaller pieces that make the space look diminutive.
