We all would love our homes to have larger rooms for decorating but you can still decorate your home in style. With decorating tips for small spaces, you can make the most of your home’s space and love your home’s decor just as much regardless of the size.
Decorating Tips For Small Spaces That Work
With some creative thinking and tips, you can decorate your small spaces and not spend a fortune either. Of course, you want your area to look decorative and serve with meaningful function too. With multipurpose pieces, you can have it all. Multipurpose furnishings grow in popularity every year because people have less and less room to decorate.
For example, if you look at some of the decor elements in these Newport villas for sale, you can see how they used multipurpose pieces in smart ways. When it comes to inspiring decorating examples, we always learn from interior decorators who decorate smaller interiors spaces professionally. So, before you spend time and money decorating your smaller spaces, always look to the pros for advice and examples.
Plus, with these decorating tips for small spaces, you can make the most of every room in your home. You don’t need to give on your small spaces either. Like many, we use these areas as storage spots in our house, which quickly turns into a mess. Now, it’s time to start reclaiming these areas with some decorating tips for small spaces that work!
1 – Move What You Can Off The Floor
Living in a townhouse often present challenges with room sizes. Since owning my home, we discovered a useful decor tip. We learned moving what we can off the floor and on the walls helps immensely. For example, since we installed floating wall shelves, we can transfer photos and knickknacks off end tables and onto the wall.
Now, you can add decorative floating shelves to any room in your home and start opening up valuable floor space. Plus, the days of bookshelves for our homes are a thing of the past. The latest trend in home decor points directly to floating shelves for almost any room in your home.
More so, by moving to shelving, you can eliminate things like end tables and bookshelves and open your space up even more. Start surveying every area in your home and see what you can move to the walls. Doing so will make your home look and feel bigger too!
Below, you can see how many exciting decor options upon up by using these stunning black floating shelves for your walls. Plus, they work perfectly in any room and easy to install. We love them, especially for our bathrooms. And think they make perfect sense when it comes to decorating tips for small spaces.
2 – Choose Furniture That Works With Your Room’s Dimensions
As you know, not styles of furniture work well in small spaces. When we moved from a much larger home into our townhome, we learned that lesson well. We replaced many of our larger furniture pieces with small multipurpose pieces. Yet, with larger areas, we were able to use some of our larger pieces comfortable. It all depends on the proportions of your rooms.
You can make your small spaces more useful by choosing furniture that adapts to the room’s dimensions. For example, you can try a modular sofa to fit any space. Since you can rearrange the sections of modular furniture, you don’t need to crowd the entire couch along one wall. You can break it up to put a couple of seats along the wall and one in an empty corner.
You have nearly unlimited options when buying furniture. Take a little time to search for designs that will fit your room. You won’t believe how often you use the room when you have a comfortable place to sit.
3 – Forget About Floor Lamps – You Have Better Options
As much as we love our floor lamps, they take up space and tend to look bulky in smaller rooms. Instead, when it comes to lighting, you have other options for smaller rooms. Below, you’ll find some of our decorating tips for small spaces that work great in areas where floor lamps don’t work.
First, think about using hanging lights in rooms with limited floor space. Also, make sure not to make your hanging light hang too low. Doing so can make your room look and feel smaller. Try and keep the light close to the ceiling by trimming the chains before installing.
For example, this beautiful affordable small crystal chandelier works perfectly for any room in your home. And it mounts directly to the ceiling, which helps your room look and feel larger. You don’t need to sacrifice beautiful home decor because you have limited space. When it comes to decorating tips for small spaces, this is one of our favorites.
Also, in our offices, we chose decorative track lighting to move any lighting off the floor. For years we enjoy the many benefits of track lighting. And they look decorative, are easy to install, and affordable!
You can also think about installing recessed lights in your small rooms as well. While more costly, they allow you to save floor space and provide optimum lighting to every room.
4 – Decorating Tips For Small Spaces With Mirrors
When it comes to small spaces inside of our rooms, always think about decorating with mirrors. We use decorative mirrors in almost every room and nook of our home. Plus, since we don’t have an abundance of natural light in our house, mirrors help pull light into every room.
When it comes to decorating with mirrors, think about grouping them to create a montage of colors and reflective decor. Add various sizes and shapes to create a different look from every other wall in your home. Creating vignettes on your walls with mirrors is the perfect way to make any small room stand out.
For example, take this stunning group of three gold mirrors and add double it! Now, you’ll have six of them to create wall art and make your small space look larger. These beautiful mirrors sell for only $15, making them affordable and perfect for any room in your home.
Even more so, you can add these stunning Round Mirrors in Assorted Sizes and create a wall vignette of your own. These mirrors are lightweight and easy to hang for fast, easy installation. You can make every room unique and appear larger too. We love them so much and use them in our foyer to add brightness and depth. At $16 for a set of seven, you can add them without the sticker shock.
5 – Declutter and Organize to Find More Space in Your Small Room
Few things steal more space than clutter! When you declutter and organize a room, you will likely discover that it has more space than you thought. You can find unique ways to declutter and organize different rooms. Start by getting rid of items that you don’t use or want. You can sell them online or donate them to a charity.
However, once you remove things you don’t want anymore, organize items straight away. You can do this by putting them into cubbies, stowing them under furniture, or hanging them in closets. If you find it impossible to get rid of things and organize your room, you can hire a professional to help you.
Hiring a professional organizer makes it easier for you to eliminate clutter without feeling attached to them emotionally. Of all the decorating tips for small spaces, this one makes the most sense to try first.
6 – Bold Colors Can Work In Smaller Spaces
Many of us love all-white decor, but it can often become dull and make your room look drab and lifeless. Never feel skittish about adding pops of color to your smaller rooms. You can add one single piece like this stunning decorative end table to brighten up any room. You can see how it brighten up my living room instantly! Plus, it’s a great place to house a small lamp, plants, or even photos of your loved ones.
And because it’s easy to move around, I love depositing it in and easily changing up the decor. This table went from a place to use my laptop into a stunning end table to hold snacks while watching TV. Either way, you can see how a pop of color can quickly transform any small area.
