Creative Hacks to Decorate a Small Space

Build Upwards

This is possibly the most common tip for decorating small spaces. When you already don’t have a lot of space to spare, the last thing you’ll want to do is use bulky furniture and decor to make that space even more cramped.

Instead of using large lamps, bookshelves, closets, and side tables, use the walls around you to your advantage and build upwards. Here are some ideas on how you can utilize your walls.

1) Mounted Shelves

These shelves will help you organize your belongings without getting in the way. From invisible bookshelves that give the illusion that you’re books are hovering in mid air to rustic hanging shelves that can give a decorative look to your space, these are definitely a smart alternative to traditional furniture.

Play with Light

The brighter your room, the more spacious it’s going to look. There are a few ways to do this. If you have lots of natural light in the day time, use mirrors and light colored furniture to brighten up the space. Light colors reflect light and make your room look bigger than it is.

You can also opt for light shades of white/off white and soft light wood for your furniture to keep up with the breezy theme. Combine this is with soft, natural accents of earthy colors and you’ll be good to go.

Use Functional Decor

Functional decor is just a fancy way to refer to decorative pieces in your home that also have a purpose and a valuable use. Start looking at items beyond what they’re usually used for and you’ll find that there are a lot of ways to use a certain piece that you hadn’t thought of.

For example, all the items shown below can be used for a specific (or multiple) purposes while still adding some decor to your space. Use the 3D Tray to hold your remotes and magazines in the living room or on your bathroom/bedroom cabinet to hold perfumes, makeup, and jewelery.

Storage space is key to keeping your space clean which will help open up space in your house. This is why using items like this decorative basket or vintage book is a great idea.
