Small time heroes

Make your small space feel bigger with clever placement of minimal furniture and accessories.

When you’re working with a small area, it’s important to steer clear of chunky or heavy-looking furniture. Instead, choose pieces that look light and airy. Wire-framed or woven rattan furniture are great options to create the look and feel of more space. Simply pair them with soft furnishings — a comfortable cushion or a cosy throw — to soften the look.

Other excellent space savers like bar style dining and extension tables work well to give you extra dining space when you need it. Clever pieces that do double-duty — an ottoman as a coffee table and a footstool, for example — are also smart buys. And above all, make sure your seating is comfortable and welcoming.
