Jumpstart Your Day: 5 Styling and Decorating Ideas for Small Living Areas
Turn tiny into cozy with these tips and tricks
A limited floor area shouldn't limit you when it comes to prettifying and making the most of your home. We should consider a small space as a challenge that we need to face with creativity and resourcefulness.
If you are thinking of changing the look of your living area, here are five inspiring spaces that may just encourage you to move furniture around and style your space.
Given the small space, you need to furnish the living area with the necessary pieces like the sofa, an additional chair, and a coffee table. Avoid adding bulky items as these pieces can make the space look cramped.
Spruce up the walls with interesting prints and quirky frames to add character to the space.
Do not block the windows to let natural light stream into the space. If you're not too comfortable with the idea of open windows, you may choose to use light or sheer curtains.
Working with only a couple of pieces leaves you with more open space. This will give your unit an open and airy feel. Use quirky area rugs as an accent pieces or if you have a neutral palette, add a couple of colorful pieces.
Potted plants, colorful accents, and a unique lighting fixture can help break the monotony of a small living area.
A comfy rug and a couple of floor pillows give you an extra space where guests can relax.
You can still have a theme for your space even if you have a limited area. In this condo unit, interior designer Van Acuna-Solano successfully created a look inspired by Paris. Choose colors that go well together and anchor the space with one big piece.
Floating or open shelves are ideal for small spaces as these not only serve as wall accents, they do not take up floor space, too! You may display your books, framed photos, and other decor pieces on the shelves.
