Decorating a small space requires plenty of creativity and a good eye for what works well given the purpose of the room and its inhabitant. Unlike a big room or space where there's plenty of square footage to play with, the focus of small areas is a bit different but not an impossible task.

Here are some simple tips to follow to make your home look amazing despite the small space:

Multi-purpose furniture

Save space with furniture pieces that can either do more than one job or can fold out of the where when necessary. There are many desks, dining tables and even beds that can be moved around to make space or provide you with storage or other benefits. A living area sofa that can also serve as a foldable bed is an excellent addition to any home.

Mirrors make rooms look bigger.

You can create the illusion of a much bigger room. Mirrors also reflect both natural and non-natural lighting and can help to brighten up a small room when appropriately positioned. Not only are they functional and beautiful, but they can also be fancy enough to act as decorative pieces in a little place.

De-clutter

Living in a small space ensures that you only buy what you need. If you are feeling cramped up, look around the room, and there will be things you can do without. Take these out and find ways around it. Decorating a small space means you have to be careful with what you put to avoid it looking unnecessarily tight.

Use bold colors

Small spaces bring out the best of textures, bright colors and prints. Tie in solids with neutrals in cool ways like throw pillows, picture frames or accent walls. You can also put at vibrantly colored wallpapers to create a focal wall in the space and decorate around the theme.

Use large rugs

Large rugs give the semblance of more space and trick the eye into making the room more prominent than it is. They can also form part of your design theme and bring character to a small space.

Plants and flowers

Greenery and flowers are always adorable in small spaces. Flower pots on the windows or table add color to small rooms. Many plants don't need regular watering and thrive in small areas like succulents and Aloe Vera. Faux plants are also a way to go for zero maintenance and more color.

Use your intuition when designing a small space and less is typically more. The above tips will help your small space shine and look amazing.

Moving into a new home can be an overwhelming time. Youíll be trying to match what you already have with new pieces, meticulously decorating the blank canvas that is your new space. Every task that you complete, you do to make your home your own. 


One part of decorating your home that youíll definitely want to take your time with is that of choosing artwork for the walls. You donít just want to take any piece of art to fill up the blank spaces. Choosing artwork should take some thought and time. Below, youíll find tips on picking the right artwork for all the rooms of your home. 


Use What Inspires You


The artwork in your home should remind you of what you love and jog your creativity and motivation. A picture or piece of art can bring you peace and joy just by viewing it. Thatís why you wouldnít want to put just anything on your walls. Youíll be looking at whatever kinds of pictures and statues that you put up each day, so make sure that itís not something that bores you!


Art Is More Than A Museum


When the word ďartĒ is mentioned, itís more than being about paintings or classic versus contemporary. Art can be a photograph that you have taken or a small figurine that you bought while on vacation. These are the things that bring you joy after all! The bottom line is that artwork in your home doesnít need to be fancy, it just has to represent you.


Take The Time To Shop


You may be tired of shopping after looking for the perfect sofa or bedroom set for your new home, but the shopping should continue. Itís best to take your time and not make impulse buys when it comes to buying artwork. Consider where a picture will go before you purchase it to place in your home.    


Know The Focal Points In Your Home


Itís much easier to choose artwork if you know where the focal points are in each room of the house. A room with a fireplace, for example, should have the fireplace as the center of attention. Any art that is placed in the room is complementary to that main piece.     


Go With Your Theme


If you have a theme going throughout your home, youíll want to find art to match. A western sunset might not match too well with your mid-century modern styled dining room.


The key to finding artwork and decor for your home is to know what you like. Knowing the scheme and makeup in each room is a great start to decorating right.

Concept image of Feng ShuiFeng Shui is an ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It is a complex body of knowledge that reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to promise the health and good fortune of the people living there.

The basic principles of Feng Shui are the principle of the five elements, Wood, Fire Earth, Metal and Water. These are the basic building blocks of nature and the environment in Feng Shui. Feng Shui, at it's core, is the belief that you can bring life changing results in to your home by knowing how to apply these elements to your home.

The best way to begin to make your home a Feng Shui home is to clean out the clutter. Based on the practice, de-cluttering your space is a good way to clear out some negative energy. Another important Feng Shui aspect is to have quality air and lighting to balance the energy in your home. Try opening the windows often and have lots of air purifying plants.

Define your Baqua, the Feng Shui energy map of your home. There are eight areas on which to focus using a compass in order to do a reading of your home .Each area of your home is connected to a different 'life area.' For example, the southeast area of your house is connected to the flow of money and energy in your house. If you are looking to increase prosperity to your home you need to increase wood and water in the southeast area of your home. You need to use wood and green and brown colors to bring about abundance in this life area. Contrarily, the east is connected to family and health and the use of the wood element and lush plants in this area will help bring about health.

It is best to express Feng Shui elements in a subtle way that is visually pleasing and will work well within your home.

Not everyone decorates for this romantic holiday but why not spread a little love throughout your house this Valentineís Day. It is not necessary to spend tons of money on Valentine decorations to get a romantic feel in your home. With just a few simple touches you can spice up your space, and create a romantic atmosphere for your loved ones. Nothing says romance like the flicker of a candle. Candles help make a space feel cozy, soft and inviting. There are so many ways to bring romantic candle lighting into your home. The safest way is to use LED flameless candles, which look like real candles without the pesky smoke.† Candles look great when grouped together on a mantel or even placed inside a non-working fireplace. Strategically placed candle holders with red and pink candles around the house will certainly give that romantic feel. Heart shaped floating candles in a variety of clear glass dishes and glassware look beautiful on a table, or mantel. A few pillar candles placed on a decorative plate surrounded with rose pedals makes a simple and easy centerpiece. Valentine's Day candies also make nice decorations. Fill clear glass jars or vases with your favorites, like Hershey Kisses or Conversation Hearts. Get really creative and make a sweet arrangement that is simple to make without emptying your pocketbook. Silk flowers, such as roses or tulips can be added to give a flora touch. Cut red hearts out of construction paper and make a garland, or tissue paper hearts for your windows. Display a Valentineís Day love quote in a frame on your table. The point is that you donít need to spend a ton of money or time to bring a little love inspired decoration into your home.
