Large Rugs

A small space does not mean a small rug. Too small of a rug visually disrupts the floor space, making your room appear smaller than it naturally is. A large rug anchors the furniture and creates a cohesive flow throughout the room.

Large Statement Pieces

Did you know many small pieces can make a room appear smaller and look cluttered? Don’t shy away from big sofas or sectionals because of your limited square footage. A beautiful comfy sofa brings on high end style and comfort.

Glass & Acrylic Furniture

Heavy and bulky furniture can weigh down a small room and also darken the space. A glass table top on a dining table or an acrylic coffee table or chairs, will help lighten up the room while also showcasing your beautiful wooden floor or statement rug.

Wall Mounted Shelves

Especially in a small room, wall mounted shelves are great for storage, without taking up floor space. They are also more versatile in design and can be mounted on top of other furniture, like a desk, sofa, or TV.

Large Scale Wall Art

Similar to how a small rug breaks up the floor space, small artwork can do the same to a wall. Sometimes, groups of small pieces can look messy. One large art piece on a wall can make a huge impact in your small space and also elevate your style.
