Tips for Decorating Small Spaces


Decorating small spaces can be equally as challenging as it can be intimidating.  A little over a year ago, I was challenged with decorating a studio apartment for my nephew.  He absolutely loved it.  You can watch the process from start to finish here, . Today I would like to share some simple tips to decorate small spaces beautifully and functionally. 

  • Purchase pieces that have dual functions- Because he had a studio apartment, we opted for a sleeper sofa in lieu of a bed or sofa.

  • Use powerful patterns and bold colors to leave an impression-  We used oranges, reds, blues and yellow hues in his space.  The use of these bold colors added layers of interest and texture to the room.

  • Let there be light- Lighting is essential in small spaces.  Find unique and decorative lamps to add light and liven up your small space.

  • Find creative storage solutions- Creative storage solutions offer big wins in small spaces.  For example, we used an industrial trunk as his coffee table and a place to store his pillows and blankets during the day.

Decorating small spaces can be quite challenging. However, with proper planning; you will be sure to arrive at an end result that you will love.  Happy decorating!
