How To Make The Most of a Small Space

Minimalism: Less is more

It is obvious that when it comes to decorating a small space, you will only be able to fit a few pieces of furniture into the room. This means that the furniture you choose should be chosen with purpose.

A good tip when furnishing small spaces is to choose furniture that has multiple functions. This leaves space and means you will need less furniture in the room.

Keeping the colour scheme minimalist too will also aid in making a room feel bigger. Sticking to a single colour throughout and adding dimensions with different textures of the same colour can help the furniture blend into the background and make a room feel bigger.

Make the most of every space

In a small space, making the most of every inch of space can make all the difference to the way a room looks.

Architectural oddities or quirks in a room such as windows or corners are often unused and wasted but can make great places for seating or storage.

Customizable bespoke furniture such as the seating shown above makes great use out of otherwise difficult spaces!

It’s a well-known fact that mirrors make a room look bigger. This tried-and-true method for making a room look and feel more spacious is the oldest trick in the book for a reason!

Light colours have a similar effect to a mirror- they reflect the light around a room. Opting for a light-coloured rug can make a room feel brighter and more spacious.


Clutter is a guaranteed way to make a room feel smaller. So, keep the knick-knacks to a minimum and get creative with your storage.

Keeping your walls clutter-free is as important as your floor. Choose one or two large statement pieces of art instead of lots of small ones to make your room feel more spacious.

Adding storage wherever possible, such as under beds will hide clutter. Customizable bespoke storage solutions and furniture will allow you to maximise your space and keep clutter to a minimum.
