Small house decorating does not need to be a headache. Here are some ideas to maximize space in your home.
In the kitchen, use the high areas for storage, whether in the form of cabinets or shelves. Clear your counter surfaces by placing appliances like microwaves and toaster ovens atop pieces of furniture or on shelves. Consider using a table that can be leaned against the wall when not in use, or a table with extendable side planks. This will help to free up space for navigating through the kitchen while preparing meals. Your small house decorating should be all about creative use of space.
In the television room and living room, consider hanging your television on a wall or from the ceiling. Be sure to position the television in such a way that it will be visible to from most angles. Arrange and books vertically on shelves rather than spreading them out on your coffee table. In addition, avoid excessively large pieces of furniture that will simply take up space. Try to buy furniture that may have different uses, such as a square trunk that can also function as center table, or add cushions to create additional seating. Your living room really only needs to have comfortable seating, and small side tables to rest lamps and other items. Stick to only the bare essentials when you are working with a small amount of space.
For the bedrooms, paint them in neutral colors. Light colors tend to give a greater sense of space. If your budget allows, purchase over-sized mirrors for the walls. Include large mirrors in the bathroom as well. This will help to increase the space visually. With these tips, you are well on your way to taking on small house decorating like a professional.
