Small Room Decorating


small living room decoratingWhen you need to decorate a small space, there are a few things to keep in mind. It is important to make the space easy to use without making it look cluttered. Decorating should go deeper than looks. So, creating the look that you want also means learning how to maximize what you have. Use these tips to help you get started on the right path to decorating a small room.

1) The color that you decide to decorate the room in can help to make the most of the space. In general, light colors, like creams and pastels, can create the illusion of space. Neutral colors and light blue tones help to reflect light so that they seem to move away from you. Small areas look larger when you use light colors for the walls and darker colors in contrast for the trim. If your room connects to other, larger areas, choose a darker shade for those rooms. The contrasting light will help the small area to seem larger. You can even use this technique to make your closet seem larger by painting the room a slightly darker shade than the closet.

2) Furniture is the number one culprit of making a room look smaller. If you’re starting with a small room, try choosing furniture that “lays low”. Short furniture that hugs the walls will help to open up the room. Furniture that matches the walls can seem to fade into the background. If you have furniture in the center or the room, like a coffee table, choose a non-bulky, sleek style so that it doesn’t take up much of the visual area.

3) Keeping clutter under control will also make the room appear more empty and spacious. When you choose furniture, select styles that allow you to store magazines, remotes, coasters, and more in secret places. Many couches and chairs have arms that open up to reveal storage. You might choose a coffee table or entrance table with a drawer for your wallet and keys. Foot stools that open up to create storage are also a good idea.

4) If the room has a closet, you can use it for storage by using specialty hangers to save space. Flat clothes hangers fit closely together to help your clothing or coats take up less space. Specialty hangers help you to keep accessories, like belts, ties, hats, swimwear and lingerie organized. Cascading hangers, multi-level pants hanger and skirt hangers help you to save even more space.

Using these tips to decorate your small room and you’ll have an open, inviting space in no time.
