Let’s face it, we’ve all been there trying to make the most out of the space we have. Making a small space feel larger, design forward AND practical can seem daunting!
We made the most out of this Downtown Austin condo by adding texture and pops of color. This client loves color so we had a lot of fun playing around with different color palettes to get this final look. When you’re working with a smaller space you might find it hard to utilize the space correctly. We have a couple of tricks up our sleeves to help you maximize your space!
Opt for extra, storable seating
Here we used leather poufs that can easily be compact and stored away, then brought back out when guests arrive. Either a folding stool or a small pouf will be your best bet since they will not take up much room and can be stored in a closet or storage unit.
Use large scale patterns
When using wallpaper go for large scale patterns- the bigger the better. This will create the vision that your room is a lot larger than it actually is.
Use all surfaces
When there is no room for a side table we opt for floating shelves to display your favorite ‘knick knacks’ or photos. Bringing accessories onto the wall will draw your eye up making the ceilings seem much taller than actually they are.
Since balconies are typically on the smaller side they are usually overlooked when it comes to outdoor furniture. We say go big, unless you’re going to be kickboxing on your porch, there is no need for that extra space. Fewer yet larger pieces will help your space seem more grand.
Now that you have a couple of ideas try them out in your space and start loving your home. Do you need more tips on how to maximize your space? Reach out to us we would love to work with you!
