LIVE BIG IN SMALL SPACES

Living in a small space poses many challenges from an interior design perspective. Too much furniture and your home feels small and cluttered. Too little and you lack the functionality you need for day-to-day living.

From furniture placement to controlling clutter, maximizing what you have is a must if you want to get more from less space. Here are some tried-and-true tips for maximizing your small abode.

Divide and Conquer -- Instead of breaking up your floor plan into individual rooms, consider an open layout that uses strategically placed furniture to divide the space.

Go for Light and Bright -- Use lighting to create a sense of spaciousness. Start by allowing in as much natural light as possible, keeping window coverings to a minimum and using bright paint colors.

Supplement with Lighting -- Augment natural light with sufficient general, ambient and task lighting. Your lighting design should take into account the different ways you use the space.

Get (and Stay) Organized -- When designing your small space, think about storage in every room. Consider adding built-in bookcases, cupboards or cabinets, and using furniture with built-in storage.

Think Versatility and Flexibility -- Keep multiple uses in mind when considering your design needs. Search for furniture that can do double duty, like a hinged coffee table that lifts to create a dining surface or a dresser that serves as a nightstand.
