9 Ways to Use your Small Space Well

Most homes have small spaces somewhere that no one is quite sure what to do with. Here are some of the best tips to use that space so that it’s functional and beautiful:
  1. De-clutter. Keep the small space tidy and free from clutter.Decorating small spaces
  2. Paint it white. It will look lighter and give the illusion of a bigger space.
  3. Choose furniture that has many purposes. Think a daybed that doubles as a guest bed. Or a shelving unit with a pull-down desk.
  4. Buy pieces with storage, like an ottoman with built-in storage
  5. Place artwork above eye level, drawing the eye upward.
  6. Design the small space as having a purpose. It can be a home office or a drinks area, for example.
  7. If the small space has a window, hang draperies high above the actual window. This will make ceilings look higher and the area more airy.
  8. Not enough storage space out of view? Try open shelving, with pretty baskets, to store about anything.
  9. Use corners. Sectional sofas suit this purpose!
