How to Design a Small Space

Small spaces are difficult to design. The lack of space means you can’t fit many pieces in it without it feeling cramped. But there are a few decor tricks you can use to make your tiny room seem bigger than it is.

Don’t be afraid of white walls

Dark colors are a small room’s worst nightmare. To brighten things up, either paint the walls a light color, or paint them completely white. White walls are the best at giving the illusion that there’s more space in a room than there really is. While some people may shy away from white because of its simplicity, you can always make up for that by adding pops of color and/or texture around the room.

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Who’s the fairest of them all? More seriously, though, mirrors can reflect light and images, creating a space that’s much larger and more open than it really is. And don’t be afraid to go big, as the bigger the mirror, the bigger your space will appear (just make sure it fits the wall).

Opt for low furniture

Large, clunky furniture can easily cramp up a small space. Instead, opt for pieces of furniture that are lower to the ground. By using lower furniture, it’ll make your ceilings look taller and, by extension, make your room appear larger.

Use sectionals for narrow spaces

Finding a sofa can be difficult if your space is small and narrow, that’s why sectionals are your best bet. Most sectionals are long rather than wide, and they’re also low to the ground, both of which are great for narrow spaces. Sectionals can also be tucked up into one of the corners of your room to save even more space.
