Apartment Therapy: Small Space Decorating Tips

Decorating with limited square-footage can be quite the challenge and no matter how experienced you are as an interior decorator, a teeny-tiny space can definitely be an intimidating project to tackle. Don’t give up just yet! Here’s the good news: when space is tight, there are certain solutions that can lend a helping hand. Whether you live in a bachelor pad, condo or small home, you can make anyone (including yourself) believe that your space is larger than it really is.

Try these three simple tips below to make your small space feel grand:


1) Be Storage Savvy
It’s not about how much space you have, but rather how you organize it. In saying that, choose pieces that serve double-duty and have secret storage compartments. With less clutter around your humble abode, your space will appear bigger than it truly is.
