So small apartments get a bad rep because you think that you can’t fit everything that you need in there, which isn’t true. You just want to make sure that all of your pieces work double duty for you. Think about storage and any place that you can get it. So if it’s your nightstands, your side tables, your coffee tables, your closets, make sure, you’re maximizing on storage.

You know closet is a lot of real estate, so a lot of people leave it as kind of the zone that they don’t think about. They think as long as you have a rod in there and they stuff a bunch of things at the bottom, that’s it. But it pays sometimes to maximize on the storage, get somebody coming in there, a cabinetry person that could put little drawers and little shelves, to make sure that everything that you have has its own place.

Make sure your furniture works double duty to you. For instance, let’s say you have an art piece, that when you open it up it becomes a peg board. Your coffee table opens up to a dining table. That you can get a lot of oddments, that open up for storage. These are items that can save space in your home and also make it feel larger.

Don’t be afraid also, to create some really bold movements in the home. For instance, a really large art piece when you walk in the door or over the sofa, cam look beautiful. An accent wall in a bold color. So have fun with it a little bit. It is a play on scale, but the most important thing is functionality.

So making sure that all of your spaces and all of your furniture work as much double duty as possible, and also make sure that things can be moved out of the way. So if you have people over and you have to move the coffee table out of the way that you have the space to do that. So just be aware that everything has a place within the home and everything functions for different uses.
