Mix & Match for a Space-Effective Room

May 2011  | 

If you’ve ever lived in a small house or apartment, you know how important it is to use your space wisely.  Space-effective furniture, such as storage ottomans and benches, bookshelves, and mirrors, can help open up your space.  The best way to maximize your space is to stay organized.  Featured above is one of our coffee table and cubes sets.  These cushioned cubes double up as seating and storage.  Storage chests, side tables, occasionals and ottomans also have hidden storage drawers and lift tops!  Another great way to organize your stuff is with bookshelves.  Choose one that fits your style and the size of your books/knick knacks.

If you’re having guests stay over, invest in a sofa bed.  It’s a great way to change up your space and utilize one piece of furniture.  Also, use tall wall mirrors to give the optical illusion of a larger room.  Effective lighting with floor lamps can also brighten up the space.  Lastly, a light colored floor rug can also open up your space.  Embrace your small room by choosing space-effective and efficient furniture.
