5 Styling Tips for Smaller Spaces

When you’re working with a smaller space, every element needs to serve a functional purpose as well as an aesthetic one. With that in mind, here are our top 5 styling tips for smaller spaces:

1. Choose custom multifunctional elements. Furniture and storage are the two main elements that take up significant room in an area. If you combine the two not only will you be boosting the functionality of your space, but you’ll also be creating the opportunity for other elements to shine. You can take this to the next level by choosing custom furniture, as this allows you to ensure that your selections fit into any nooks you may have and no space is wasted.

2. The devil is in the detail. While we’re on the topic of custom elements, the devil really is in the detail. Consider selecting custom cushions or replacement cushion covers to really stamp your personality on the space. Artwork and throws will help you on this front and small decorations can also work well as long as they don’t create clutter.

3. Keep colours light and bright. When you’re working with a confined area, the last thing you want to do is make it feel smaller. To help avoid this, keep your colour scheme light and bright unless you’re specifically choosing a dark element as a statement piece.

4. Make use of vertical space. Because your floor space is limited, getting creative with vertical elements can really help level up your design. We love green walls for adding life and texture, but the options are essentially limited as long as your element goes up, rather than out.

Replacement Cushion Covers

5. Work those angles. Finally, mirrors will be your best friend in a small space. Position them within the area so that they hit the right angle to make a space look larger, and you’ll instantly enjoy a more grand feeling.
