There are a few easy tips for you to remember when decorating small spaces in your house. If you have a small front room or a foyer, you don't need to forget about using this space in your home because you can't figure out how to make it look good. There are ways to make small spaces look nice and be functional. You don't need to take your mother's advice and paint the space white, either. In fact, your small space may become one of your favorite places to hang out.
Don't block doors, hallways or windows with bulky, oversized furniture. You may love having a huge, cozy couch in your living room, but if you try to squeeze one into a tiny place the sofa will seem suffocating. Instead, think about maximizing your space with seating that has no arms. An armless sofa or set of chairs can still be very comfy to lounge on, but the open sides will make your space seem much airier.
Paint your small space in a bright color. Sometimes, bright colors can seem overwhelming in a huge room. They can make tiny spaces look very cute though. Think of decorating your small space as an accent to your home. For example, it is common to buy a large piece of furniture in a neutral color and then decorate with small, bright or patterned pillows. Your small space can serve the same function in your home as those accent pillows serve.
Get rid of clutter. Nothing will make a small space seem smaller faster than filling it up with clutter. Do not leave your junk mail, keys and change all over the table in your foyer. You should also avoid going overboard with your display of tchotchkes in tiny rooms. Just pick out a few decorations that appeal to you, such as a single vase of flowers, and stick with those.
