SMALL APARTMENT, BIG STYLE
A small space doesn’t mean you need to downsize your style. This collection will help you create a fabulous look that helps maximise your space (and savings!).
With a smaller apartment, it’s unlikely you’ll have the luxury of a whole room for your home office. If that’s the case, consider a stylish slimline desk that will still look good in a bedroom or living area. Make sure it has large drawers that allow you to pack away any clutter to keep things looking neat when entertaining guests.
STYLISH, SENSIBLE SEATING
If you don’t have room for a large chaise lounge, simply add a couple of footstools or ottomans that can serve as a coffee table and bonus seats when guests are over. A feature chair is also a great way to bring some style to a small space.
Bulky furniture that sits low to the ground can make a small space feel even smaller. Instead, look for furniture that sits off the floor. The coffee table above is a perfect example – its thin legs and glass top also ensure extra visible space, creating a sense of openness. Or, if you want to create a bit more of a cosy feel, cushions can make a space feel comfy without taking up precious floor space.
CREATING THE ILLUSION OF EXTRA SPACE
Mirrors are one of the best ways to make a small space feel open and airy, while large-scale wall art can also make a space seem bigger than it is, without cutting into any of the available floor real estate. Finally, stylish sideboards can provide additional storage space and extendable dining tables are brilliant for little living areas, especially if you love to entertain.
