Small space design
1- light colors
dark colors make a space look smaller, light calm colors make the space wider and more gracious, use as much light colors as possible in small spaces, use a color wheel to make sure you stay in spectrum whenever selecting a new piece.
2- create as much storage space as possible
storage space allow for empty surfaces, you want to clean up all surfaces and hide everything behind closed doors to create a clear de-cluttered area.
3- go vertical
use the height, go as high as possible, raise the cabinets as high as possible, hang shelves, hang lighting on the wall instead of floor lamp. go vertical.
as much as this point is related to point no. 2 it is also important to even de-clutter what’s inside the storage, think about every piece twice before buying it, think about what really matters, owning less is better if you are living in a small space.
5- choose multi-functional products
if you can get a bench with book storage why not ? if you can get a bed with under drawers, why not, think multi functional.
6- let the sun in
keep the place as bright as possible, don’t use dark curtains and don’t block the sunlight through the windows, let the sunlight play through different rooms if possible by creating kitchen that is open to the living room.
