Aico Furniture Hollywood Loft Dining Room
There are many designer tricks you can use to make the best use of your space, even if it’s small. A simple tone-on-tone color scheme can make the space appear roomy, while pops of color add interest. Use empty corners for a breakfast nook, a reading alcove, or a computer station. If you have a good view, bring the outside in by removing shades and drapery to visually expand your space.
Here are some good ideas for decorating smaller spaces:
1. Choose Scaled Down Furniture
Designed by legendary furniture designer Michael Amini and artist/actress Jane Seymour, the Hollywood Loft collection featured above is scaled and proportioned for smaller spaces. Enjoy the glamour and functionality you expect with smaller furniture pieces to make optimum use of your dining room, bedroom, and living room areas.
2. Choose your Sofa Wisely

A smaller living room doesn’t mean you have to skimp on style. The stunning Natuzzi Editions Adrenalina sofa pictured above offers a contemporary modernist look inspired by the splayed legs of mid-century modern design. Sectionals are also a good option since you can choose the pieces that fit your needs and your space. Many of today’s sectionals have motion features for comfort, as well as inserts for cupholders and storage.
3. Control the Clutter

Invest in a chest, cabinet, or armoire to provide the storage you need. Nothing makes a room look smaller than the clutter of stray papers, clothes, and electronics. An attractive storage unit can add style to your home while giving you the space you require for your things. Remember what mom always says – everything should have a place!
4. Maximize the Home Office

Now that many of us are working out of our home office, it makes sense to maximize the space – especially if the office is in the corner of a bedroom or living room. Many home office furniture collections offer a hutch for books, folders, and files to sit on top of the desk. Other home office storage pieces include matching file cabinets that go under the desk and bookcases.
5. Get a Storage Bed

For a bedroom that is short on linen closets, a storage bed is a perfect solution. Choose the style you like in the size you need, from twin and full sizes to queen and king. Make use of the storage drawers beneath the mattress and keep your sheets and blankets out of sight when they are not in use.
