12 Decorating Ideas for Small Spaces

When decorating small spaces, you have to be extra creative and use the right decor pieces in order to maximize the available space. Here are 12 decorating ideas for small spaces that will help you create a beautiful, functional, and stylish home.


1. Use Furniture with Storage

When decorating small spaces, use furniture that offers storage options. A coffee table with drawers or a bed with built-in shelves and cabinets help to minimize clutter and maximize the space available for decorating. Additionally, using multi-functional furniture such as ottomans that can be used both for seating and storage or desks with compartments helps to make the most of every inch of a small room.


2. Hang Mirrors to Reflect Light

Mirrors can help to make a small space feel larger by reflecting light throughout the room. Hang mirrors on walls across from windows or sources of artificial lighting to maximize the effect. You can use a single large mirror, or several small mirrors for an interesting decorating effect. When decorating with mirrors, it’s important to keep their placement in proportion with the size and shape of the room.


3. Paint Walls with Light Colors

Using light colors on walls helps to create an open and airy feel in a small room. While decorating with dark paint colors can offer a cozy ambiance, they will tend to make a space feel even more cramped. Opt for pale shades of blue, green, or yellow to visually expand the area. Accentuate by adding brighter decor pieces, such as artwork and colorful throw pillows.
