Idea #1: Color vs Space

Here’s a great example of how to maximize a small living space. A room of this size has the tendency to seem cramped, but the large windows, light colored walls and ample use of mirrors not only reflect the natural light pouring in from the doors and the windows but the use of mirrors also gives the optical illusion of space, helping to make the room seem larger than it actually is. On the contrary, darker colors will make a room feel smaller.

Idea #2: Follow this pillow equation

To enhance your couch, follow this pillow equation by placing two 20-inch square pillows in a matching bold pattern in the corners. Then, overlap them with two 16-inch pillows in a coordinating solid color. You may also add one lumbar pillow for balancing the design.

 

Idea #3: Warm up the room with decorative mirrors

Mirror, mirror, on the wall: What is the best placement of them all? Well, mirrors can also be used to make a small space feel larger. For larger rooms, or any room with a more limited amount of natural light, mirrors placed directly across from the windows will help to add instant light. Decorative mirrors can also be used in lieu of art to fill an empty wall space. Whether large or small, mirrors add light and dimension to your living space.

Idea #4: Hang artwork at the right height

Most people might hang their artwork too high. It would be ideal to place a piece with three to eight inches above the furniture; lower for large pieces and slightly higher for small pieces. When there’s too much space between furniture and a painting, the eye rests on the void, causing the wall to look blank between the two pieces.

 

Idea #5: Implement the 50/150 rule

For the perfect color family, mix one batch of paint 50% lighter than the base and another 150% darker. This a failure-proof method for striping a wall. Besides, it is also a very architectural way of using color.

 

Idea #6: Enhance with a right-sized rug

The size of the rug will dictate how you arrange furniture around it. With an 8×10 foot rug, situate the sofa and any chairs so that the front legs of each are somewhere on the rug but the back legs are not. A 5×8 foot rug keeps the sofa completely off, but still place the front legs of the chairs on it. In a large family room, use two rugs to create two separate living areas.

Idea #7: Go green

Add plants to your living space and to every room, small or large, few or many. Plants are an inexpensive means to accessorizing your space and adding color and texture. Not only are plants beautiful but plants can clean household air and balance humidity. They can absorb pollutants and remove harmful gases from the air. No home should be without these wonderful greens!

Idea #8: Rearrange the bookshelves

Organize 60% of books vertically and 40% horizontally on the shelves. This creates a balance yet spontaneity. Stack horizontal books lower than vertical ones: If the vertical books are 12 inches tall, place three to four books horizontally up to four inches high. Try to avoid flowers, which can look cluttered and distracting.
