Designing Small Spaces

Tips & Resources, Window Treatments

Designing small spaces can be more personal and interesting than large spaces.  A large space requires more attention in terms of planning, and accessorizing.  Large spaces accommodate more users so vignettes must be created to allow efficient use of the whole space.

A good design satisfies your space requirements.  Here are some suggestions to keep in mind when Designing small spaces:
  1.  Select furniture that is not only stylish but functional.  For example, choose a sofa that doubles up as a guest bed or dining banquette.  Or, perhaps a dining table that also functions as a study or work table.
  2. Furniture must be well proportioned.  Carefully measure for small spaces to accommodate all intended activities while preserving circulation space.  An inch or two makes a big difference while designing and laying out furniture pieces in small spaces.
  3. Define a style that complements your personality  – be it modern, rustic, traditional, etc.  It has to be a style that will blend with and highlight your favorite artifacts or collections.
  4. Select color schemes that will create an illusion of bigger space.  Make the basic shell (walls, floor, ceiling) in neutral colors like whites, beiges, light grays, greige (grey-beige)
  5. Design storage cabinets against walls in neutral colors to mimic wall colors so as to blend instead of stand out.  This way, the sense of space is not lost.
  6. Use design tricks like mirrored walls to double the space and vertical stripes to create the feeling of height.
  7. Achieve a cozy ambiance through the use of accent directional lighting.  Use soft, plump throw pillows with a theme color and patterns.  Select artworks that will add color or pattern on an otherwise plain wall.

8.  Lastly, unify furniture and achieve that comfortable, cozy look with area rugs – shags, kilims, woven – as these add that final luxurious touch for a well-decorated space.
