4 Answers to Your Small Space Questions
All you need are space-saving solutions and a few handy tricks
Once you move into a small space, your lifestyle changes. Every single furniture or accessory is properly planned and chosen. You may think that this is a downside but it's actually a good thing! Studying your options and researching on furniture and stores can help make you a practical homeowner.
If you're new to high-rise living, we're sure that you have a few questions in mind. Here are four common questions and how you can best deal with each. Be inspired to improve your home with these ideas:
My mini-home office/library looks a bit dark. What should I do?
Your space will look stuffy or dark if your wooden shelves have the same hue as your floors. To brighten up the space, opt for back-lit shelves. Once lit, your shelves will be highlighted not just as a storage piece but as a decorative accent too.
How can I highlight the headboard of my bed?
Place two identical lamps on both sides of your bed to illuminate your space. This will help highlight the design of your headboard or a wall accent, if you have one.

What can I do with an awkward wall?
In a small space, you must maximize every corner of your home! If you have an awkward wall, why not turn it into something useful? Make it your own home office by adding a study desk and a stool against the wall. You can also go for built-in cabinets as extra storage options.
What can I do to spruce up my walls aside from painting it?
Hang 3D wall accents or decals to liven up your space. An accent wall automatically draws attention away from the other elements in the room.
