How Do You Furnish a Small Space?
Short on space doesn’t mean short on style. You want to choose furniture that provides substance without being overwhelming. In the bedroom, make sure you pick a bed that is big enough for comfort, but not so big that you can’t walk around all three sides. Floating shelves will provide smaller rooms with both decor and functional surfaces. Smaller living rooms might benefit from armless side chairs and nesting end tables. Long, narrow tables that double as a workspace behind the sofa are a perfect option for small dining rooms. Maximizing the use of small space furniture will make every piece valuable in a small space.
How Do You Arrange Furniture in a Small Narrow Living Room?
Small living rooms can be tricky, but if you keep a few key tips in mind when arranging living room furniture for small spaces you’ll end up with a living space you love. Before you begin, make sure you measure the length and width of your living room space as well as the measurements of each wall segment in the room. A large rug that fits just inside those measurements will help you define the space, and also sets the color tone for the room. Place a small space sofa along the longest wall (some even have additional futon capabilities) and pair it with a narrow recliner or accent chair so there’s a seat for everyone. Mirrors help open up the room and bounce light around the room. Make sure you don’t forget about vertical space! Hanging curtains just a few inches below the ceiling line will make the room feel taller and more spacious.
How Do You Beautify a Small Room?
Once you’ve selected your new small space furniture from Ashley HomeStore, move onto the little details that will make your rooms pop. Large, bright wall art creates beautiful vertical lines, and a large rug helps define the area around your small space bedroom furniture. Details like overfilled throw pillows on couches and hanging light fixtures help create a luxurious look. Don’t be afraid to pick dark colors—just make sure that you have lots of natural light either coming in through windows or bouncing off mirrors to create the illusion of a bigger room.
What Lighting Should I Use in a Small Space?
You’ll want a combination of different lighting to create a cozy but spacious atmosphere. One easy way to do this is to hang a mirror above a console table and place a lamp so the light reflects off the mirror. Not only is a sofa table the perfect furniture for small spaces, but the light reflecting will make the room seem bigger and more spacious.
