What I Love About My Small Home:
My favorite aspect of my small home is the layout. It is very functional and has a ton of storage space. I also love that my apartment gets great light. It makes the space feel much larger, airy, and open.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
1) It is very important to plan your space to fit the things that you love while creating a sense of openness and flow. Be sure to play around with different floor plans before placing your things at a permanent place of residence. 2) Utilize wall space. When you have a small place, there isn't a lot of floor space to store items. I have accounted for this in my space by incorporating a lot of shelving units. 3) Know when to go dark and when to go light with color options. I like bright white, but it doesn't really work unless you get a lot of sun light. I also like dark colors, but I tend to think that they only work well in oddly shaped and dim spaces.
