Whether you have a small condo in a big city or a small home office, we all have spaces that need to be utilized to their full potential. No one likes to walk into a small room and have it actually feel small. Here’s how you can decorate these challenging areas.

Light Colored Paint

If you use darker colors in a small space, the walls seem to close in on you. Lighter colors will make the space appear bigger, especially if there isn't a lot of natural lighting within the area.

Low Profile Furniture

If you don't have a lot of space, using low profile furniture will make your walls appear to have more height than they really do. You'll also want to stay away from over sized furniture, as it has no place in a small space.

Mirrors placed across from a window reflect natural light thus making the space appear larger. Floor length mirrors also help open up a space.


Any type of lighting is good, but semi-flush mount lighting fixtures reflect light above and below.  When the ceiling is brighter, it gives off the illusion of more height. The brighter your space is, the better.

Multi-Purpose Furniture

When you're dealing with limited space, you need to make the most out of what you can get. Having furniture that doubles in functionality such as utilizing a work desk as a dining table will help you keep your need for a lot of pieces to a minimum.
