Today, more and more folks are enjoying life in smaller spaces either by choice or by necessity. But, less than optimal living space need not mean giving up great style. It just takes a little creative planning and finding the right furnishings to maximize available square footage. It can actually be an interesting challenge to bring elevated style into your compact modern rooms.
The living room shown below is quite small, but a loveseat instead of a six-foot sofa fits perfectly with the space. A wise use of color also gives the room a more spacious feel. Lots of pale hues and a few pops of color add to the illusion. A small metal end table and a slim floor lamp also work well. We love the clever and practical use of wall shelves.
In this tiny kitchen, an open “breakfast bar” with delicate metal stools allow the eye to wander unimpeded throughout the space. And rather than feeling closed in the painted black wall actually makes the room feel more spacious. The pale wood flooring flows from the living room into the kitchen and adds to the open look. Of course, the white cabinets and tall window are also just right.
The tiny, tiny room above manages to have all the necessities found in normal size bedrooms. A super small night stand and narrow shelf under the windows are nice touches and very functional too. We are captivated by the placement of ceiling lights off-center in front of the narrow brick wall. By leaving the bed open, without a dust ruffle also adds visual space to the room as do the more tailored bedding and throw pillows.
See-through furniture of any kind is a great idea for small spaces. The Ghost Counter Stool would be perfect for a tiny living/kitchen space.
The Picanto Loveseat 2 Seater Sofa is just right for a small living room. The fact that it rests on sleek metal legs gives it a lighter airy feel meaning it takes up less visual space.
