Living in small spaces can present a major challenge for home owners particularly in cases where one is downsizing and moving from a large home to smaller accommodation. This challenge can be dealt with and overcome at two different levels. Firstly, there is the mental aspect of adjusting ones’ mindset to the space that they have to work with. A positive attitude will go a long way.
Secondly, there is the matter of ensuring that the furniture and décor selected, serves to maximize the limited space available. For example, light colours will help to improve optics and provide airiness in small spaces. Dual purpose furniture such as sofa beds will also make a difference, especially if they offer storage capacity.
In kitchens one should choose a modern look with light colours and metal base tables. When furnishing living rooms, sectionals can make a room appear larger; while in second bedrooms, a cabinet bed or a sofa bed can also be included to better manage space. Generally in choosing appropriate furniture for small spaces one should seriously consider utilizing the complimentary design service which Decorium offers. This tool can help anyone take full advantage of and enjoy living in a small space.
