Small home design – many designers have great success working in small spaces. The key is to focus on the positive aspects of space, while finding ways to make the most of the space that is available. In this way, not only can you make a small house with style, but it can also make you feel as if it is bigger than it really is. Proper design makes your small home feel less tight and more pleasant.

Painting with cold colors in most rooms of the house. Cold colors such as blue and light green make the walls seem farther from sight than if the paint had a warm, dark color. Place the large furniture in a small room to make it look more impressive than it is. Try the furniture from floor to ceiling, like a bookcase to build both a sense of scale in the room and to take advantage of the vertical space for storage.

Create more light in the space to make it look bigger. Light colored curtains that allow natural light into the space, lamps and lighting fixtures must all be used to maximize light. Mirrors also help, as they reflect light to give the impression of more space than actually exists. Buy double purpose furniture whenever possible. Ideally, anything that works as a seat or a decorative piece should also have some practical function. Storage is especially important. Pieces like a chest that works like a coffee table while also providing practical storage are ideal in small spaces.
