Struggling to find the perfect look and layout for your small space?
You’re not alone! The truth is that maintaining a sense of space and balance is much more difficult to achieve when room is limited.
But believe it or not, there are advantages to working with a small space. Namely, it may be more viable to furnish a small home with luxury furniture. Because there is less room for furniture, you won’t need to buy as many pieces. As a result, you’ll have more money to invest in high-quality luxury furniture for your home!
At Direct Interiors, we have over 40 years of experience in delivering interior design services for small spaces. Whether you need apartment furniture or condo living furniture, here are our top tips and tricks for furnishing your home!
Optimize Your Home’s Layout
Before you start buying furniture, you will need to create the optimal layout for your home. When dealing with the limited space of an apartment or condo, this will require you to consolidate—only selecting furniture that serves a purpose.
Fortunately, there are various types of multifunctional furniture options today—whether it’s an ottoman with storage or a bedframe with drawers, for example. Identify the pieces that are absolutely necessary and take advantage of options that offer multiple functions.
Next, arrange your furniture in a way that will enhance the traffic flow of your home. Keep furniture away from natural walking areas. At the same time, resist the urge to push your furniture up against walls when it makes your space appear crammed.
Choose the Right Pieces
When arranging furniture in a smaller home, it may be tempting to choose smaller pieces in an effort to conserve space. However, this can easily make your home appear crowded or sparse.
A better way to establish balance is to employ the overscale effect. This strategy involves choosing one large piece of furniture and placing smaller pieces around it. This can help you fill out your space without drawing attention to its square footage.
Also, opt for pieces with bright colours rather than those with dark tones. Brighter shades reflect more light and create a greater sense of space!
Emphasize Quality Wherever Possible
Unlike the homeowner who faces the enormous challenge of furnishing several rooms across multiple floors, you won’t need to sacrifice quality to fill out your small space on your budget.
Provided that you will need fewer pieces of furniture for your home, prioritize quality when shopping for luxury furniture at your local high-end furniture store. Identify pieces from reputable brands that are made from high-quality materials. Choose real leather over faux or bonded leather, and real wood over particle board or plastic.
High-quality pieces bought from a luxury furniture store will not only look better but also last for many years to come—saving you plenty of money in the long run!
