Furnishing Small Space

It’s easy to make mistakes when furnishing a small space, by pushing all the furniture to the edge, under the illusion that it’s creating a feeling of space.

• Use the entire area and don’t be afraid to use large furniture.

• Large modular sofas work well as they define the seating area and can give you two sofas in one.

• Favour low over high for items such as bookcases, and modular designs are also available.

• Free up more space by regular decluttering. Use boxes and baskets to hide bits and pieces.

• Extendable tables are great for accommodating extra guests.

• Focus lighting on the walls and outer edges will open the space. Mirrors also bounce natural light and bring exterior views inside.
