The interior design of a space can make or break a room, especially when it’s limited in spaciousness. A small apartment, or even a small room, comes with its own set of challenges which in order to overcome, require a custom-tailored approach. When dealing with small spaces it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and not know where to start. Let’s take a look at what the pros have to say when it comes to making the most of what you’ve got with interior design Vancouver.
Focus on Your Needs
Before you even start thinking about the style of a space, you need to define the stars of the show. Are you in desperate need of kids’ toy storage? A bigger, more comfortable couch for family movie night or a big counter that functions as a dining area with a few chairs? Start with your problem areas and go from there.
Don’t Be Fooled By Size
Instead of buying many small items or pieces of furniture, don’t be afraid of investing in a big statement piece that will multitask and do everything those small pieces would have done. Instead of creating clutter, go for a more minimal approach.
If you are limited on space, standing lights can take up unnecessary room and outlets. Hanging lighting, pendant lighting or scone lights will free up some extra space and give you one less thing to worry about.
Multifunction is Your Best Friend
In small spaces, having multifunctional pieces can not only save you money but free up valuable space. A media stand can be customized in a way to accommodate a desk beside it, a nightstand can act as a coffee table if you’re really limited on space, or you can even use a dining room bench as a coffee table for an interesting look.
