Tips for Small Spaces

March 11, 2009 | By | Comments (0)

Living in a small space is a daily challenge. And the best place to go for tips on how to organize, decorate and face the day-to-day, is people who already live in a small space. Apartment Therapy Los Angeles put out the call to their readers for their best tips, and recently posted the results. (Read the full list here.)

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Go vertical and use the space up to the the ceiling whenever
    possible – shelves and storage that have a small footprint but are tall
    can really help in a small space.
  • Walk into your apartment and create your space from that viewpoint. You
    don’t want to see the back of your tv from that perspective, and a few
    other not quite neat sides of things.
  • A dark floor against light colored walls and furniture can really make a place feel more spacious.
