    HOW TO MAKE YOUR SPACE LOOK AND FEEL BIGGER

    Totem Road Sustainable Bed

    This week we uncover the secrets to making the most of your small spaces. Whether it’s your living room or bedroom these simple design ideas will take the weight off your shoulders when shopping for furniture and will give you the confidence to design your space in a way that feels spacious and inviting without the need to renovate.

    WORK WONDERS WITH MIRRORS

    If there is one thing you should invest in when decorating the smaller spaces in your home, it’s a mirror. By introducing a mirror into your room, you will instantly double the illusion of space and reflect more light into the room. Add depth to your room by choosing a focal point and angle your mirror toward it or place your mirror near a window to reflect the outdoors inside.

    GO BOLD WITH ART

    Let artwork take centre stage and frame your space with a vibrant piece. We love to pair a bold artwork alongside our minimalistic sustainable furniture pieces to create a statement within the room.

    CHOOSE STATEMENT PIECES

    Rather than having multiple smaller furniture pieces which make your space look cluttered, we recommend investing in key pieces of furniture that will cater to your needs and become a statement within your home for years to come. An example of this is choosing a larger coffee table to give you the freedom to place everything you need on top, while having some additional space for decorative pieces.

    Another tip when choosing furniture for your smaller spaces is to select items which have exposed legs, leaving room underneath to create the illusion of more space.

    MAKE USE OF WALLS

    Think vertical when you become limited for space. This could mean adding floating shelves, wall lighting or hooks to hang items on. Hanging storage options are the perfect way to make use of corners of your home which are unused.

    CLEAR THE CLUTTER

    There is nothing that will make your space feel smaller than having too many things in one room. Use clever storage options like our Aspen Sideboard to store your items out of the way and place your audio and visual equipment where you need it.
