Decorating Cozy and Compact: Tips for Small Space Living

In the era of surging rent prices and booming construction of tiny homes, one trend truly prevails: small living spaces. So, whether you're in tiny living quarters by choice or happenstance, this short list of tips for decorating a small space is totally for you. 

Tip #1: The Perfect Sofa

A living room that's narrow and small can be particularly challenging to decorate. A carefully chosen sofa or sectional can make the most of your small living quarters. When you're shopping for a sofa, look for the "wall huggers"--these are the sofas that are long and can lean up against a wall. This gives your living room more depth.

Here's an example of a great sofa we can offer for your small space:

Tip #2: Embrace Textiles

Textiles go a long way toward helping set the mood of a space, which is super important when you're limited on actual space. Textiles can be anything from throw pillows and blankets--to area rugs and wall art. To choose the right textiles, pick a color palette (these are the colors you want your room to be) and let the items serve as the inspiration for the space.

They're perfect for small spaces--and economical to boot (think two for the price of one). Not interested in an ottoman? No problem. A coffee table with drawers for storage makes for a great piece too.
