Small Space Solutions- Furniture That Multitasks


In a small space, choose pieces that multitask.  For example, an ottoman can function as a coffee table, extra seating and storage.  By carefully choosing furniture that can service more than one function, you can achieve a more open feel in your limited space.

Accessorizing Small Spaces

When choosing accessories for small spaces, consider displaying a single large item as it will present a more streamlined look.  For example, on small bookshelves or a table top. This will achieve a feeling of more space, as many small items placed together can look cluttered.  In addition, using  select large items will bring a designer look to the space!

How to Size a Mirror


We are often asked how to choose the correct size mirror for a space. A general key is to keep the mirror at least 10% narrower than any item it is placed above.  For example, your sofa, fireplace mantle, or dining room buffet.  If you are looking for the most impact, we suggest going with as large a mirror as you can, while taking into account the space where you are hanging it.  For more great ideas visit www.cheapchicdecor.com.

Numbers Matter When Accessorizing

When accessorizing, place items in groupings of 3 or 5.  Using an odd number of items is more pleasing to the eye, and will add interest to your display.  For example, using 3 candle sticks on your dining room buffet instead of the more traditional set of 2.  For more great ideas visit www.cheapchicdecor.com.
