Make Your Small Home Inviting

There’s something to be said for a compact home – it’s efficient, easier to clean, less expensive to heat and cool and requires less stuff to fill it. If you’re buying your first home, or you’re downsizing from a larger home, you may feel the squeeze of small spaces at first but follow these tips and you’ll soon appreciate that less can really be more.

Go for quality. You can buy a smaller home in a better neighborhood that’s closer to the jobs, schools, and amenities you need. That’s much better than enduring a long commute to have more space. Instead, choose fine furniture and accessories that make a statement about who you are.

Minimize clutter. Nothing makes a space feel cramped like overcrowding. Too much furniture, too much clutter, and not enough storage can reduce your comfort. If your home doesn’t flow well, it’s time to declutter.

Be clever. Decorating a small space can be a lot of fun if you think in terms of furniture doing double duty. Ottomans can triple up as a footrest, coffee table or extra seating. Nesting tables can provide extra tabletop space when needed and store compactly.

Let the light in. Bright spaces look larger than dark spaces. Light cheerful colors on walls and in your décor can expand any room. Reduce the need for bulky lamps and tables by installing sconces and recessed lighting.

The trick is having what you want but recognizing that there’s no need for extras or excess.
