Decorating for Downsizers

Decorating for Downsizers

If you’re planning on downsizing, then keep in mind that there are a number of things that you can do to decorate your space so that it feels comfortable and inviting despite the smaller space. The following are a few tips that could help you decorate your smaller space:

  • Use colors for spatial effect – Think about what you want to achieve with each room before committing to certain colors. Darker colors will make an area feel more cozy and intimate, but can also make the area feel smaller, while lighter colors can bring energy to a room and make it feel bigger.
  • Use patterns – A lot of people avoid patterns, but there’s no reason to do so. In fact, patterns can help make a space much more visually interesting. You don’t necessarily have to use patterned wallpaper throughout your home either, simply adding patterns in certain elements, such as throw pillows, can have a big impact.
  • Don’t use too much furniture – Because you’re downsizing, you may have more furniture than you need. Don’t try to cram too much furniture into your new home or it will feel small and cluttered. For example, you may want to get rid of those end tables flanking your couch if you simply don’t have the room for them.
  • Define your spaces – You don’t have to rely solely on your walls to define your spaces. You can use decor elements like area rugs to help do this as well, which allows you more options for how you set up each room.

These are just a few tips that you should consider using for decorating a smaller space. If you’re thinking about downsizing, then make sure that you hire a moving company you can trust. Contact us at Dircks Moving & Logistics to schedule your upcoming move today.
