Live Well In a Small Space

Posted on June 15, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Here are some interesting recommendations by Sarah Susanka, author of  The Not So Big House:

If you have a small house,  one of the best ways to increase the feeling of spaciousness is to bring in the light.  Open drapes and blinds, or install a large mirror that will reflect a window.

If you have 2 small rooms, create space by removing the shared wall.

Vary the floor materials.  Instead of  having the same flooring material throughout the house,  break it up with several different materials.

Create visual vitality by accenting one wall with a saturated paint color.

Use a spotlight or highlight  a piece of art.

And – strictly my opinion –  get rid of knick knacks and go for a more streamlined,  minimalist feel in your furnishings.  As I have said before,  I think the credo of “have nothing in your home which is neither beautiful or useful” says it all!
