In this article Kimberley Seldon shares her design ideas for maximizing space in your apartment or home. Some of the principle themes are as follows:
  • Built-ins and modular furniture units: Up, up and away. Make use of built-in bookshelves and furniture units that use horizontal as well as vertical spaces.
  • Emphasize available space: Let there be light. Pick furniture with legs rather than skirting to maximize reflected areas.
  • Monochromatic color schemes: Colors of different tonal values (light and dark) define space in the eye. Tones of similar value creates the illusion of additional space.
  • Multipurpose furniture: Create flexibility. With a day bed and some comfy cushions a living room or office can easily be turned into a space for guests.
