Interior Decorating Services Hermanus – Decorating Small Spaces

Interior Decorating Services Hermanus – here are some great ideas when decorating small spaces and rooms in your home:

  • A small room does not only have to hold small items of furniture – for example, a large sectional sofa can often be better than a small sofa and chair. 
  • You can make a small room feel much bigger by choosing a few large pieces rather than several smaller ones that can look cluttered
  • Ensure that you keep the main furnishings in proportion to each other 
  • Avoid bold patterns or overstuffed furniture
  • Maximise light and use mirrors and glass to create reflections and bounce light around – for example, use a glass coffee table rather than a solid one 
  • Ensure that curtains do not cut off light when they are open – instead, open curtains should fall beside the window and not obscure any of it. 
  • Do not let vertical space go to waste – use it to provide a display space for art
  • Be clever and creative with storage

  •  In a small bathroom ensure that you use a clear glass shower door
  • Utilize the space above the toilet – add shelves and put your clutter in attractive boxes on the shelves
  • Use products made of glass and clear acrylic as they let the eye travel through their clear and reflective surfaces
  • Hang your flat screen TV on a flexible arm – this way you will not require a bulky television stand or entertainment unit
  • Create multi-functional spaces – a sofa bed is a great example of a multifunctional piece of furniture
  • A mirrored wall or mirror fronted cupboards create an optical illusion of having double the space than is actually there
  • Be sure to make good use of every corner and find furniture that is shaped to fit in with your space 
  • In the kitchen install floor to ceiling cabinets with open shelves and glass fronted doors – dark materials will give the impression that the room is much smaller than it actually is
  • Buy internal wire shelves for the cabinets as these can almost double a cupboard’s capacity
