HOWTOMAKE SMALL SPACES GRAND Is moving into a bigger space on your wish list? It might surprise you to learn that many professionals in the design and construction industry are encouraging homeowners to rethink what a dream home is, meaning it doesn’t have to be big to be beautiful. Smaller homes require more thought because the same necessities need to be incorporated into a limited space as in a large one. This extra attention to detail leads to – you guessed it – more detail, which leads to a home that uniquely addresses your needs as an individual and a family. So, how do you fit all the amenities of a grand home into a much smaller one? Here are three tips from experts who insist you don’t have to move up in size to move up in life: Maximize your millwork. Storage is premium in any space, but particularly in a smaller home. One of the best ways tomake a room seem larger is to cut back on the clutter by hiding away practical items and leaving out the more decorative ones. Bringing cabinets up to the ceiling not only provides extra storage space, it also draws the eye up and makes the room seem taller. Think of wall space as square footage. Aside from using it for storage, wall space is also an area of the home that can be utilized for design interest. Crownmoulding, baseboards and door andwindow trim add architectural detailing while artwork and wallpaper add drama and a touch of class. Lighting equals luxury. There’s nothingmore entrancing in a home than an eye-catching and well-placed light fixture. Choose from crystal chandeliers to industrial-style track lights to pot-lights that highlight artwork and special details of the home. And don’t just limit lighting locations to the ceiling. Wall sconces in bathrooms – particularly dimmable ones – add softness while pot-lights can be recessed just above baseboards to highlight the floor.
