7 Cost Effective Ways To Style A Smaller Space

Got a small space? Even though you can’t include large furniture or heaps of decor items, you can still make it look amazing.

All you need is a few design tricks.

Our cabins are the perfect space solution for many families and businesses. They come as a blank slate with plush carpet and painted white walls – the perfect opportunity to inject your own personality into the styling.

And, it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. You can create lots of style with little investment.

Need some inspiration? We’ve assembled our best tips for styling a smaller space…

There are plenty of cost-effective ways to style a small space! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. Add a statement piece: A bold rug or a piece of artwork can add instant visual interest to a small space without taking up too much room. You can then use the colour and style of your statement piece to inspire the rest of the decor in your space.
  2. Use multipurpose furniture: Choose pieces of furniture that can serve multiple purposes. For example, a storage ottoman can serve as a footrest, extra seating, and storage. You could have a headboard with built-in shelving, or a fold-out couch to add extra bedding options.
  3. Hang curtains: Curtains can add colour and texture to a room, they can soften a room or create a feature. Choosing long curtains can also help to visually enlarge a space also.
  4. Incorporate mirrors: Mirrors can make a space feel larger and brighter, and they also add visual interest to a room. Hang a large mirror on one of the walls, or create a gallery wall of smaller mirrors.
  5. Use vertical space: Make use of your vertical space by adding floating shelves, hanging plants, or artwork. This will help draw the eye upward and create the illusion of a taller space.
  6. Embrace natural light: Keep your window treatments light and airy to maximise the natural light in your space. You can also add reflective surfaces like a shiny metal lamp or a mirrored tray to help bounce light around the room.
  7. Add plants: Plants not only add a pop of colour to a room, but they also help to purify the air and create a calming atmosphere. They are really versatile too! You can place pots on shelves or the top of a dresser, or fill dead space in a corner with an attractive plant.

Remember, you don’t need a lot of money to make a small space feel stylish and welcoming. With a little creativity and some strategic planning, you can transform your space into a cozy retreat.
