Most of us are troubled with small spaces, but there is really no need to put up with them. Whilst enlargement and renovation may be out of the question, there are a few tricks that you can employ to make your small spaces seem larger and which are easy to implement yourself. I perhaps mentioned this tousand times but you should know by now that I live in the tiniest apartment ever, despite having 2 bedrooms which one is totally cramped! Yep, with all my landlord stuff that I have put there, so I could replace furniture in other rooms! Sacrifices!

It can be tempting to think that making space in the centre of the room by pushing furniture to the walls is a great way to make a small area seem larger, but think again. It could just make your small room look empty and uninspired. Instead, try planning a furniture layout that uses angles and centre placements. If you joined me at my Ideal Home Show talk, I have explained that little more! For example, in a home office, angle your desk across two walls and position it so that you look into the room rather than staring at the walls. For living rooms, place a large sofa in the centre with a narrow console table behind it. Remember to allow for walking space around your furniture. Let your space breathe and don’t just cramp around the room living the centre empty! It’s a crime!
