1. Paint Colours
When it comes to paint colours for a small space white is NOT your only option! Although most people have a fear of painting with dark colours, they are actually great for small spaces. Dark colours camouflages the fact that it’s a small space, gives a perception of depth and gives the overall illusion that it’s a bigger space.
2. Mirrors, Glass, Lucite, and Acrylic
Almost everyone knows nowadays that the use of mirrors in small spaces can definitely make a space appear larger. Oversized mirrors that can just lean up against a wall give the illusion a room is larger and that it continues on. Also choosing furniture pieces that are made with glass, Lucite or acrylic are great for areas where space is tight. The ability to see through the piece can open up a space! Many of these materials can be found in accent tables, coffee tables, dining tables, consoles etc.
3. Double Duty Furniture
When buying furniture for small spaces you want to look for furniture that has more than one function. This convertible love seat is great for living rooms or spare room. Instead of the traditional sofa bed, this piece is design so that the seat backs recline and sides fold flat to make for an extra bed! The dimensions are 81”Wx 42”D x 32”H Seat depth closed 22”seat depth open 38”
4. Create Hidden Storage
And most especially with a small space, storage is almost always an issue. It doesn’t have to be. This table can actually serve four functions: Low-seated casual dining table, cocktail table, four mini ottomans and four hidden storage facilities (each ottoman has a storage space underneath the leather seat). The versatility of this table with its sleek style and functionality is truly remarkable.
5. Use all Available Space
When you think about small spaces it’s not only the floor space that you should be considering. Think about the vertical height you need to take advantage of. Besides bookshelves or tall cabinets ever noticed taller buffets? These are great for more storage!
Nesting tables are great space saving items. You can pull them out when you need more surfaces when entertaining or can be pushed away when you’re not.
