Rules of Thumb for Small Spaces

If the small size of your residence is posing decorating challenges, remember that the key to comfortable living is developing a space-efficient plan. Every square foot is usable, and choosing the right pieces can make your room feel bigger than it really is. Styles, placement and functionality are all key components when battling small square footage.

Stay in Line

Consider the clean lines of contemporary furniture to improve sight lines and minimize visual clutter. Many sets even come in metro-sized proportions, so you can still enjoy the look and comfort you crave.

Functional Fun

Utilizing multipurpose pieces is an intelligent way to avoid overcrowding. Take this lift-top coffee table for instance, which offers a tabletop, storage and workspace in one.

Going Up

Square footage may be measured from side to side, but real life isn’t two-dimensional! Take advantage of vertical space by mixing in some taller pieces, like a bookcase or an entertainment center with piers.

Clean-lined furniture with leggy, open-style bottoms or glass tops is ideal for small areas. You can still manage to get a look with big personality that doesn’t overwhelm your living space.
