Decorating a Small Home to Create More Space
A small living space can be a challenge for new homeowners, especially those who have accumulated a great deal of furniture and other personal possessions. Luckily, some simple decorating tips will allow them to maximize their space without feeling crowded.
First and foremost, new homeowners should review all their possessions and sell or donate appliances, clothing, accessories and other items that haven't been used in years.
It’s very important to use storage space effectively -- bookcases and shelves serve many functions, saving space while displaying decorative accent pieces. Plus, shelves can be built inexpensively to also provide extra storage in cluttered areas.
It’s also possible to take advantage of wall and ceiling space. Homeowners may wish to move a bulky entertainment center and free floor space by mounting the television on a wall. In the kitchen, walls and ceilings can provide additional spaces to hang pots, pans, and hanging fruit and vegetable baskets, freeing up more counter and cabinet space. Spice racks, storage jars and utensil holders help keep kitchen tools organized and counters clear.
Seasonal clothing, decorations or keepsakes can be kept in closets, nooks and crannies. Shoe racks and organizing cabinets can keep similar items off the floor.
