6 Ways to Use a Small Space

We may dream of living in 10,000 square foot mansions, but the reality is we’ve got to work with what we’ve got. A lot of times, what we’ve got is a bit cramped. It can seem impossible to use a small space for living and storage without it feeling uncomfortably tight. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. There are several strategies you can do to save space and to trick your mind into seeing a larger room.

At Buddy’s Home Furnishings, we’ve got rent to own furniture, appliances, and electronics in all shapes, sizes, and styles. The important thing is to find the piece that fits the look and feel of your home.

  1. Utilize wall space.
    Don’t let your walls fail to hold their own weight. Shelves can go floor to ceiling and get an incredible amount of clutter off the floor.
  2. Incorporate light colors and transparent pieces.
    Trick your eyes by using light, neutral colors which makes a room feel bigger. Also, pieces that you can see through like this 3 piece rent to own table set, keep your room from feeling cramped.
  3. Hang mirrors.
    To continue with the mind tricks, hanging a large mirror or a series of smaller ones will make your room look much bigger than it is.
  4. Use 2-in-1 furniture.
    Make sure your furniture is pulling double duty. Consider a bed like this Ashley Furniture rent to own queen bed with built in storage.
  5. Keep clutter at bay.
    Consider whether you truly need everything you own and donate or throw out anything you don’t. Your biggest enemy in small rooms is clutter.
  6. Integrate storage into the design.
    Storage doesn’t have to be an eyesore. Find stylish storage solutions that fit the style of your room while providing complete practicality.

Furnishing a small room doesn’t have to be a chore. With a little ingenuity, you can create a stunning, practical, comfortable room that everyone will enjoy.
