Classic Decorating Tips for Small Spaces
Before starting out on the varied decorating tips, it is important to get one thing in order―clear out the clutter. If a room is cluttered with a lot of things, it closes the space and makes the room appear even smaller than what it actually is. Clear out anything and everything that is not needed and start off from there.
Another option that one can take up is to paint a single wall in a bright color. Find the focal point of the room and paint that wall in bright shades of red, yellow, blue, or green. This contrasts well with the rest of the walls, increases the depth of the room, and gives it a feel of the room being big.
Instead of the walls, one can choose curtains, or wooden dividers for when privacy is required.
Open shelves serve a dual purpose. They not only create space, but because they are not closed; they automatically force you to filter the things that you will store there in order to keep them looking presentable and clutter free. So, make sure you fit open shelves instead of cabinets in areas like space under the stairs.
