Anyone who's ever had to deal with a tiny apartment knows that small space living comes with its own set of challenges. It doesn't mean designing these spaces is impossible. With a little planning and forethought. even the most cramped spaces can become equal parts functional and eye-catching.If you're dealing with tight square footage and aren't quite sure where to start. you're in luck.
The open architectural look may be gorgeous. but not always practical. Being able to have a private bedroom or a way to divide the living space from the dining room would create a more functional feel to a home.So how can you add a little intimacy or privacy to a room without closing up your space permanently? By getting creative and adding a room divider that can open and close as needed. or moved to another spot.
You can go about tying your cabinets together in a few ways. In the picture above. for example. both the upper and lower cabinets fit within the same color palette. Consider using two different shades of the same color as your equalizer. However. if you'd rather include two distinct hues. you should think seriously about using the same hardware throughout the space to bring the look together.
do you need storage for kids toys? Is a sectional a necessity or will a sofa and a chair be fine? Would a round table be a better fit for your dining area? Asking these types of questions will help you identify your specific problem areas — and viable solutions before you start to purchase furnishings. which will ultimately save you time and money.
