Three top tips for embracing your small space

When it comes to interiors, good things do indeed come in small packages. The key is to balance smaller space so that its size is acknowledged and even emphasised in an artistic, visually interesting way. Don’t be shy about size - - - small spaces can provide amazing, unusual design opportunities. They should absolutely be celebrated just as much as their larger counterparts! Here are our three top tips on getting the most out of your smaller rooms.

01. Use oversized

Think oversized mirrors, oversized pictures, an oversized decorative bowl on the coffee table. It may seem counter intuitive, but lots of small items can clutter a space and make it feel busy. Avoid all micro-decor which can create an appearance of chaos (unless you’re really into that), and instead mix in a few strategically placed big and beautiful pieces into your cute, compact space.

02. Go light and bright or all dark

You can definitely go to the dark side when considering the colour palette of a small space. All-dark spaces are enveloping and cosy, blurring the lines for where space starts and ends, making them feel bigger. If you decide to stick to clean, bright and light for a more modern and expansive feel, it is a good idea to play with tones and texture to add layers of interest to your beautiful smaller space. What better way to layer gorgeous fabrics and textures into your all-dark or all-light and bright scheme than through your window apparel? Our Cotton Twill range provides a beautiful, timeless twill fabric in incredible colours perfect for colour schemes in small rooms.

03. Streamline

Blinds can be a clear winner in a very compact space as they themselves are more compact than curtains. Their clean lines can elegantly and seamlessly be incorporated into a space making them the perfect solution for smaller rooms. Always install them above the recess where possible, to maximise natural light in your space when they are open.

Seize the opportunity to turn your blind into an impressive feature in its own right by choosing an eye-catching or contrasting block colour. We suggest looking at our Flax range for inspiration. The Evergreen and Sunset colours are sensational shades to add a beautiful shot of colour to a little space. So there’s no need to waste what you have, but instead embrace your amazing little space in your home!
