Whether you’re living in a dorm room, a city apartment, or a small office, decorating a small space can be a challenge. To maximize your limited space and keep order in your home, it’s important to choose your furniture and decorative pieces wisely. To help you navigate the (very small) waters, HomeSense has a few decorating tips to help you make the most out of your small space:
+ Fit fashionable function into a small space by creating zones for different activities.
+ Storage baskets and boxes mounted directly on the wall create a collage of cubbies for organizing odds and ends. Stash a few more under the bed to take advantage of previously wasted space.
+ Kitchen canisters are an obvious go-to when it comes to clearing countertop clutter. Consider wire baskets as an option for storing pantry staples like bread.
+ If built-in garbage disposal is not an option, go for a chic trashcan for the kitchen that makes a dramatic statement in a bold colour.
+ Even in a small space kitchenette, a message board creates a command-central station and keeps important reminders close at hand.
+ Textiles like bath towels – or bed linens – bring colour and pattern to a space when displayed in open shelving.
+ A desk does double duty as a dining table when mismatched chairs are brought in to form an eclectic and colourful spot to dine. A quirky grouping of vases is all you need to elevate your tabletop for entertaining.
