Most of my furniture designs are scaled on the smaller side.
Maybe it's because I have lived in space challenged places most of my life.
I have always struggled with finding affordable, stylish pieces that are the right scale for a small room. The kind of furniture that doesn't look like it came out of a box, even though it does.
Well, every once in a while...you gotta go big.
Even in a small room.
Adding at least one large piece can really help in creating the illusion of a larger space.
Here a few simple tips to make your small space stand tall:
1) Add tall bookcase. It can help give the illusion of a higher ceiling.
2) A larger rug can really create the feeling of more square footage.
3) And a full scale sofa, if the room allows for it, can really set the tone and give a small space a sense of space. Adding armless accent chairs also allow for extra seating without crowding the room.
