Your home-whether big or small–should inspire you! It should convey your happiness for the opportunity to claim your own space in this world and make it yours. The following home decorating tips will help kindle your creativity and motivate you to make the most of a small room.
A basic home decorating tip for any small room is not to accumulate! A rule of thumb to go by when shopping is to ask yourself if you really need the item in question. If you find something that you like better than what you have, then replace it and give what you have to someone else. That means you can’t keep both items. This is difficult for many people but is crucial to cutting down on clutter and making that small room attractive.
Another home decorating tip for a small room is to keep the room versatile and multipurpose by making sensible furniture choices that provide a greater variety of seating options. Club chairs and ottomans are more adaptable than a sofa or love seat. They can comfortably seat more people and each person will have their own space without feeling confined. Ottomans can be placed side by side to provide an additional, flexible seating area.
What about a large bed in a small bedroom? Don’t panic! It can be a focal point and be played up; after all, it is a bedroom. This is where you start your day and end your day-so make the most of your small bedroom by coordinating color and texture and let the bed take over the room-you will feel like you live in a palace!
A few well-chosen pieces of larger furniture can effectively be placed in a small room. Too many small pieces of furniture in a small room will lead to visual ruin and give a cluttered look.
A basic home decorating tip is to use mirrors to reflect light and give the illusion of space. A large mirror placed opposite a door, faced by another mirror, will make a small room look more spacious.
Putting these simple home decorating tips into practice will give you a home you love to live in which will nurture your spirit in the process.
