Creative Decorating Ideas For Small Spaces

Think Big In Small Spaces: Small spaces can be the most fun and interesting spaces to decorate. Small rooms and apartments challenge us to use space wisely and creatively. Below are a few inspirations of little rooms that feel larger and more roomy than they actually are. In addition, I’ve highlighted console tables, which can be a great investment in a pocket-sized home or apartment!

Have a tight space? Make it work with smaller scale furnishings! This apartment-sized sofa and petite coffee table make this living area cozy and comfortable.

Mirrors create an illusion of more space! The clear glass coffee table also makes this small space airier and more open.

What an idea for an extra closet! In small spaces, every nook counts. The interior of a closet can make a great working area if you don't have a room dedicated as an office.

This simple console table has room underneath of it for extra seating and storage like ottomans.

Another cool console table with urban flair and storage!

Consoles with shelf space provide storage for other items like books.

More ottomans with a console table - it seems to be a winning combination! In small spaces, it is great to have a console table that has storage as well.

This petite office space has it all - a work area, storage and bright, white walls.
