Having a small room can be challenging, but it doesn't have to be a hindrance. With a little creativity and some smart design choices, it is possible to create the illusion of more space and to make even the smallest of rooms feel bigger and more welcoming.
Artistic decor, such as paintings, sculptures, and other decorative pieces, can add character and interest to a space, but they are also one of the most underrated ways to instantly broaden the space. When selecting artistic decor for a small space, it is important to choose pieces that are visually interesting but not too overwhelming or cluttered. Look for pieces that have clean lines and a minimalistic aesthetic like the Euclid wall panels, as these can help to create a sense of openness and balance. In addition to adding visual interest, artistic decor can also be used to help create the illusion of more space. For example, a large painting or mirror can help to draw the eye upwards, creating the illusion of a higher ceiling. Similarly, a series of smaller pieces arranged on a wall can create the illusion of a larger wall and make the room feel more expansive.
- Play with light: Different sources of light instantly make a space feel brighter and more open. Be intentional.
- Look for pieces that serve multiple purposes. This could be a coffee table with storage or a sofa that can be converted into a bed. The Hyde floor lamp has a side table built in along with wireless phone charging. The Mersenne Speaker table isn't just a table. It serves as a speaker with rich and immersive 360° sound. It has Qi wireless charging and USB or bluetooth connectivity so you can play your music easily right from your phone.
Use vertical space: If you are short on floor space, consider using the vertical space in your room. Shelves, hanging organizers, and wall-mounted storage can all help to maximize the space you have available.
- This might be minor, but is a huge pet peeve of ours. Hide your cables! No one wants to see charging cables or other wires. So keep things as minimal as you can. A lot of our lamps come with wireless or wired charging options so you dont need to have another long cable out to charge your phones.
