De cluttering is the need..!!

Too many furniture will make a small room look crowded. So choose only furniture that is needed. A small sofa cum bed will be a great addition in a small room.


There can also be a small tea table and two small chairs. A small storage unit will help in de-cluttering the space. A colorful small sized carpet or rug will enhance the look.

Maximum use of vertical space

Since a small room has very less floor space, the walls can be given additional responsibilities. There can be artistic or creative stands or units that will look not only attractive but also can be used for storing or placing things.

The colors of these stands can be in contrast to the color of the wall. All the four walls of a room (or 3 walls) can be decorated differently.


One of the walls can be used for stands or units, then the other wall can be used for hanging photographs. The third wall can be kept plain or painted with a dark color. By making maximum use of vertical space in a small room can give the room a feel of space and peace.
