Find Functional, Balanced Furniture
Use a few large, simple pieces of furniture or accessories in place of several smaller pieces which would make a small space look cluttered. The size of the space needs to balance with the size of its belongings. When selecting furniture, consider maximizing the function of the piece. For example, in a small dining room, benches around a table provide more seating than individual chairs and consume less floor space. Furniture should always work double duty in small spaces. Be very selective about what you bring into a small space as each piece will need to speak for itself.
If you’re having trouble figuring out what to do with your small space, don’t be afraid to bring in a professional. Most interior designers offer consultations at an hourly rate (we do!) which can make getting professional advice very affordable. Finally, size isn’t everything, it’s what you do with it that counts. Go forward and embrace your (small) space.
