10 Best Interior Design Tips for  Small Spaces


Creating the Illusion of Space The ultimate goal in a small space is to create the illusion of space by tricking the natural eye.


Reduce “Visual Noise” (AKA Clutter) Proper storage is one of the easiest ways to maximize a tiny home. Opt for closed storage, multi-purpose furniture, and limit decor items on open  surfaces.

Anything Visible is Decor  That orange toaster and that PS4 are part of the decor! If you don’t want something impacting your design, put it behind closed doors.


Proper Scale of Furniture The biggest mistake we make in small homes is choosing furniture and decor that is too small. Appropriate sized seating will make your home functional & balanced!


Avoid Bulky Furniture Opt for items with a slimmer structure and less padding. For example, go for something with a lower profile back and slimmer arms when looking for a couch.


Reflective Surfaces Mirrors, shiny metal finishes, and glossy surfaces can all help to bounce light around the room, creating the illusion of more space.


Adequate Lighting Use a combination of floor lamps, table lamps, and wall sconces to keep your room well-lit no matter the time of day.


Accent Walls Creating visual interest is a great way to create the illusion of space because it draws attention to a specific aspect of the room.


Create Defined Zones Creating defined “zones” is essentially making imaginary boundaries within the room using rugs, bookshelves, drapes, or room dividers.


Choose a Color Palette Keeping a set color theme makes the design seamlessly flow from room to room, making your home feel larger.


Maximize Floor Space Add furniture with exposed legs, position furniture to show longer expanses of flooring, and take advantage of the walls to create interest & storage (bookshelves...)


The Result

A stylish  and functional small space interior!
