Not all of us have the privilege of a big space at home. But while small spaces might appear to be at a disadvantage when it comes to decorating, there’s still a way to make a small space look more spacious and—even more importantly—cozy and tidy.
You’ll find a wide array of tips for making a small space appear bigger when you browse online. In this post, we’ll focus on one technique that’s tried and tested when it comes to small space decorating—focusing on natural linen.
Decorating with Linen: It’s All About the Visuals
In truth, much of a space is perception. People who perceive a space as small will feel limited in how much they can enjoy the said space. So when decorating, the key is to create a visual perception that will make a space look bigger than it actually is.
When it comes to linen, the key is simplicity—light palette, minimal and carefully selected patterns, with just the right dash of colors.
Light Colored Linen Beddings
Light colors open up any space. White, for one, blends well with anything. But, you can also go for other colors on your linen other than white. Pastel colors are a great option, as well as cool colors that are easy on the eyes.
Minimal Patterns on Your Linen
Patterns can enhance any room, but too much of them can make a space look cluttered—especially a small space. If you are using patterns, stick to small ones, and minimize as much as possible. If you have drapes, go for a linen bedding that matches the drapes well.
Add Bold Colors, but in Moderation
The best way to add a spice of colors in a small space without creating visual clutter is through a set of throw pillows. Place one or two on your bed or on your sofa to complement the sofa cover, but remember not to overdo it.
No matter how small your space, you can make it feel like home with the right decorating. Use natural linen to create a space that you will love.
