How to Decorate Small Spaces

Posted by admin, 1 August 2012

I may have mentioned earlier that I’ll be moving into a new flat soon. I hate the process of moving, but I love the idea of going to a new flat and reassessing décor. While our new flat is much nicer, some of the rooms are a bit smaller, which has presented me with the following conundrum: How do you decorate small places?

One thing I’ve discovered is that white is your friend in a small place. White floors, white coloured walls, white (or glass) tables… All of this helps brighten up your room and give the illusion of space.

My next tip is to maximise your vertical space– that means use your walls! Hang art prints in a salon style up your wall to take advantage of all of your space. As you may want to go with a lot of white and light furnishings, adding art will add colour and interest. Try going with white frames to have consistency between all of your artwork.

Last tip (which is a bit more obvious), make sure form is meeting function in your home. It’s nice to have beautiful things, but they can serve a double purpose! Try to find furniture with hidden storage.

Do you have any tips for how you decorate your small space?
