Last year I wrote a blog about designing in a small space. I gave some interesting, creative and helpful tips on how to achieve your goal.
Earlier this year I downsized my life and house and needed to use my own practical advice. My new living room is just about 150 square feet; much smaller than what I’m used to. Since I wasn’t willing to part with any of my furniture, I really needed to be creative with my space planning. So I did what I do best, I put pen to paper and got to work. I treated my new space like I would for a client. I took the room’s measurements along with the furniture specs and worked on the placement. After a few try’s I came up with a feasible plan. I was able to use all my living room furniture and create a very cohesive plan. Hopefully this is a good example on how to design a small space with large pieces.
