A small room with über oomph!

Layout is an often underestimated element in the world of design, but one that makes all the difference in the overall look and feel of a space. When decorating a small room, it becomes even more important to master the art of maximizing every inch, and finding ways to create illusions of grandeur within the existing floor plan.

The problem: When our client first came to us with her design project, her biggest dilemma was how to place her furniture – a common concern when dealing with a small room. In this condo, the client’s intended location for the dining room was in the biggest area directly across from the kitchen. This relegated the TV to the smallest corner beside the fridge. The condo’s best attributes – the open-concept layout and its beautiful, full windows – made the layout planning here particularly difficult.

The solution: With some simple switch-ups, the solutions began to flow.

The take-away: Look around your own small room and try thinking outside the box. Move things around, use appropriately scaled furniture, and remove the conventional barriers that may be stopping your creativity. You’ll be amazed at the possibilities!
