Clever Small Space Decorating Tips
Here are some small space decorating ideas to get you started:
Use multifunctional furniture
When square footage is in short supply, you have to get creative with your furniture. Look for pieces that can serve more than one purpose. A coffee table with built-in storage, for example, can double as a place to store books or blankets. A daybed can be used as both a sofa and a guest bed. And a small dining table can be folded away when not in use.
Get creative with storage
When you have limited space, it is essential to get creative with your home storage. There are a number of small space-friendly storage options available that can stack clothing and belongings in unique ways. In this bedroom, upper cabinets have been installed above the closet.
Maximize natural light
Natural light can do wonders for small spaces. If possible, try to maximize the amount of natural light in your space. This will help to make the space feel more open and airy.
Hang things from the ceiling
A lot of times, the ceiling of a room is taller than we really need it to be. If you are short on floor space, try hanging things from the ceiling. This is a great way to free up some space and add a bit of visual interest to your space. We recommend keeping your ceiling storage limits to the edges of the room. You can store holiday decorations, suitcases, extra food, seasonal furniture, and more.
Use mirrors to create the illusion of more space
Mirrors are a great way to make a small space feel larger. By placing mirrors in strategic locations, you can reflect light and create the illusion of more space.
Paint the walls and ceiling white
If you want to make a small space feel larger, painting the walls and ceiling white is a great option. This will help to reflect light and make the space feel more open.
Keep the window treatments simple
In small spaces, it is best to keep the window treatments simple. Heavy curtains can make a small space feel even smaller. Instead, opt for light, airy curtains that will let in plenty of natural light.
Use light-colored fabrics
In small spaces, it is best to stick with light-colored fabrics. This will help keep the space feeling airy and open.
Use rugs to define different areas
In small spaces, it is often helpful to define different areas with rugs. By using rugs, you can create a sense of separation between different areas without making the space feel small and cramped.
Add plenty of light
In small spaces, it is important to provide ample lighting in the form of table lamps, floor lamps, overhead lighting, and more. You can use a variety of different light sources to create different effects. A flush mount is a space-saving overhead lighting idea.
Shop small-scale furniture
When working with small spaces, it is important to shop for small-scale furniture. This will help to avoid making the space feel cramped and overcrowded. We have a list of sectional sofas for small spaces if you are decorating your living room for example.

Use light-colored paint
Another great way to decorate small spaces is to use light colors. Pastel colors such as baby blue, cream, pale pink, and light gray make a space feel more open and airy, which is perfect for small spaces.
