Small space decorating ideas can be very valuable in making your home feel more inviting and cozy. As the price of house rises you are getting less space for your dollars, these decorating tips can be a life saver for maximizing your space.

1. Think Multifunctional
Using multifunctional furniture like a trundle or murphy bed, ottomans with storage, folding shelves and tables can help with saving space and organization. Yes you may be thinking, some of these items are larger pieces but, using these larger items that have multiple uses can actually help to save space by keeping your home clean and organized.

2. Think Tall
When decorating your small space think about optimizing your vertical square footage. Take advantage of your walls and hang photos and artwork to draw the eye up. This will help you to personalize your small space to make it more of a home.

Another way to take advantage of vertical real estate is tall walling hanging shelving. Shelving that goes all the way to ceiling will help create the illusion of higher ceilings and larger spaces. This will also help with extra storage to keep things neat and tidy.

3. Think Light and Bright
It is no secret that brighter spaces seem larger. Take advantage of natural light to help make your space seem larger and more inviting. Using mirrors to reflect light is a great way to take advantage of your natural light.

Same goes for paint colors, lighter and brighter paint colors and themes will help your space seem larger. White is usually the best choice for this with light accent colors all around. Solid clean patterns and lines rather than busy, heavy patters will also help to add that pop of color and create a great focal point making your space seem larger.

4. Think Practical
You may have items that you want to keep but do no need on a daily, weekly or even monthly basis. In order to get the most out of your space it is important to prioritize what items you will need readily available. Renting a storage unit is a great way to keep your small space clean and organized. Take any items you may not need on a regular basis and store it off site.

Remember, when decorating a small space think multifunctional, tall, light, bright and practical.
