For many reasons, like retirement for example, people are re-examining their need for large homes and downsizing. This can be very difficult for some. There are many ways to maximize your space. Here are a few ways to make the transition easier.
First of all, think light and bright for an airy feel. Mirrors also will make a room feel larger and brighter. Use a few lamps to spread out evenly around the room instead of an overhead light. Bring your artwork up to trick the eye and accentuate the height of the room.
As for furniture, scale will be very important. If you think it might be too big, it probably is. Sofas come in a variety of sizes – but in a very small space, a loveseat might do just as good. Chairside tables work well as space savers instead of larger end tables. For a small dining area, try a round table. Pulling up extra chairs when needed is easier than a rectangle table. When it comes to bedrooms, opt for full or queen size bed. Added storage under the bed is also an option. Skipping the bulky frames and pushing the bed up against the wall will also work in some situations.
Probably one of the most important things is to declutter and embrace minimalism – You will thank yourself in time to come!
