Living in small spaces can be challenging from the perspective of interior design. Too much furniture makes

your home feels small and cluttered. Too little and you lack functionality for day-to-day living.


Making the best use of the area you have is imperative if you want to get more from less space.


Here are some workable tips for maximizing the space you have.


Divide and Conquer -- Instead of breaking up your floor plan into individual rooms,

consider an open layout. Strategically place furniture to divide the space.


Make it Light and Bright -- Use lighting to create a sense of spaciousness. 

Allow as much natural light in as possible and keep window coverings to a minimum.

Make use of bright paint colors.


Supplemental Lighting -- Augment natural light with general, ambient and

task lighting. Your lighting design should take into account the different uses of

the space.


Organization -- When designing your small space, think about storage in

every room. Built-in bookcases, cupboards or cabinets, and 

 furniture with built-in storage reduce the amount of clutter.


Flexibility and Versatility --When considering your design needs, keep multiple uses in mind.

Look for furniture that can do double duty, likea  hinged coffee table that lifts to create a dining surface

or a dresser that serves as a nightstand.

 

When searching for small spaces, it can be searched by price or by living area,

or number of bedrooms and baths.  There are plenty of homes in Baton Rouge that could fit with your plan!
