Creative Ways to Decorate Your Small Space at Home

If you live in a small home, you probably know how challenging it can be to find ways to make it feel bigger. An apartment or condo can feel incredibly cramped when the ceilings are low and the walls are slim, especially if you’re not used to living in such a small space on a regular basis. With this in mind, if you’re currently trying to come up with ways to decorate and furnish your small home, you’ve come to the right place. This article will give you some great ideas about how to make your home look bigger and more spacious than it is. These tips work for homes of any size and will help you bring out the best in your smaller living quarters.

Decorate with Light Colors

First and foremost, when you’re decorating your small home, you’ll want to choose light-colored furniture and wall decorations. Darker colors can make rooms feel smaller, while lighter colors will help make your space seem more expansive and airy. If possible, try to use neutral tones and decorations that don’t have any specific color scheme. Neutral colors will allow you to easily change up the look of a room without having to replace all your decorations at once. You can also try to avoid clutters by choosing decorations that are smaller in size and have a more simplistic design. Smaller and fewer decorations will give the appearance of a room being less packed and more spacious.

Use Mirrors to Reflect Light and Increase Visual Space

If you have a window in your room or some other source of natural light, consider adding a large mirror to reflect the light and make your room look brighter and more spacious at the same time. Mirrors are a great way to make a room appear larger, and they work especially well if you have a window that faces out towards a less-than-attractive view. Adding a mirror to reflect the light from your window will help brighten your room and make it look larger than it actually is. Mirrors are a great decorative item for any room in the house, but you can use them in a special way to make the most of your small space. Check out this beautiful Wall Hanging Mirror. 

Install Built-In Storage

Most people have a lot of stuff, and if you live in a small home, all of your stuff can quickly take up a lot of space. If you have a lot of possessions, you might feel as though you have no room to put anything, which can make a small home feel even more cramped and difficult to live in. If you’re trying to figure out how to make your small home feel bigger, consider installing built-in storage throughout your home. Built-in storage is a great way to keep your things out of sight and organized, and it can help keep your belongings from taking up too much space. If you have built-in storage, you can store your things out of sight, which can help make your small home feel less cluttered overall, and more spacious.

Add Built-in Seating

Next to built-in storage, built-in seating is another great way to add more space to your home. Whether you have a small living room or a small dining room, you can add more seating by installing a sectional couch, or chair with a large ottoman that has storage space underneath. With a built-in seat, you can neatly and unobtrusively add an extra seat or two to your smaller rooms. You can also add built-in seating to your kitchen. You can install a breakfast bar that extends the length of your kitchen or add an island or barstools to the center of your kitchen. You can also try installing a bench along the wall in your kitchen.

Hang Artwork and Install Wall Decorations

If you’re trying to figure out how to make your small home feel bigger, you can start by hanging artwork in key places around your home. A single piece of artwork can help break up the space in a room and make it feel more interesting. Wall decorations are another great way to break up the walls in your home and make the space feel less confined. Wall decorations can include anything from a decorative rug to custom wallpaper. Wall decorations are a great way to add some color and personality to a room without having to add a lot of bulky and heavy furniture. Check out some of our latest Home Decor items.

Go for Small Scale and Darker Furniture

Finally, if you’re trying to figure out how to make your small home feel bigger, one of the first things you should do is change out your lighter-colored furniture for darker furniture while also choosing small scale furniture so that the space does not feel cramped. Darker-colored furniture will visually make your home seem larger, while light colors will make it appear smaller. If you’re trying to figure out how to make your small home feel bigger, getting dark colored and small scale furniture is a great start. Our Wood Dining Table for two is a perfect example of an elegant, but small scale dining table that can be a fit for the smallest of dining spaces.
