Tiny But Cozy 3 Ways To Decorate Smaller Spaces To Make Them Feel Much Larger

Image title

When decorating a small space, there is a general desire to make the space look and feel larger than it is while also meeting basic functional needs in the room.  For example, there may be a need to accommodate seating for a number of people in a living room, but there also may be a desire to provide ample space for foot traffic so the area does not feel cramped.  By following a few important rules, it is possible to furnish smaller spaces so that they are functional and do not feel cramped.

 

Think About Decorative Storage Solutions

 

One of the most common factors that will make a small space seem cramped and uncomfortable relates to clutter, and because of this, focusing on storage solutions can go a long way toward making a smaller space feel larger.  Storage solutions can be decorative, and they can be a true benefit to the décor in the room.  Think about functional storage features like an ottoman with hidden storage features, an entertainment center with cabinets and shelves, or a tall bookshelf that can hold many of the items that you want to place in the room.

 

Decorate the Space Vertically

 

For most people, there is a general inclination to decorate a room horizontally and to fill the floor space with furnishings, but this can be detrimental when decorating a smaller room.  In a smaller space, decorating the space vertically, by using bookshelves, storage cabinets, and other features that rise above the ground rather than that sprawl across the ground, can be very beneficial, and aesthetically pleasing.  The goal should be to decorate the room fully while leaving ample space for foot traffic to maneuver through the room comfortably.

 

Use Lighter Colors

 

Darker colors used in a smaller room can make the space feel closed off and cramped.  Using lighter colors can brighten the space and make it seem more airy.  While using shades of white and beige throughout a space may not be ideal in all rooms, these can be used in various aspects of the décor to improve the spacious feel of the room.

Smaller spaces can be challenging to decorate, but there are different tricks and techniques that can make the space look and feel larger.  Some techniques may improve the functional use of the space, and others may simply play tricks on the way to create the illusion of space.  All can be used together to create the feeling of a larger, more inviting room.
