Working with Small Spaces
Small spaces can be challenging, especially when a room needs to function in many different ways. Our client was moving into her first studio apartment from a college apartment she had shared with friends. Our task was to take her one room living space and turn it into a bedroom, office, living and entertaining space using what she already had.
We often use “zoning” to create separate living spaces within a room that can function in a variety of ways. In this room we created three: a bedroom, an office, and a living room. Beginning with the largest piece, the bed, we removed her headboard and nestled the bed in the corner. Using lots of decorative pillows, the space by day is extra seating or a cozy area to curl up with a book. By night, it transforms into a comfortable sleeping alcove. The desk at the end of the bed visually divides the sleeping space from the office space. At hand is a file cabinet and bookcases. The living space is defined by the red leather futon, an easy chair (partially out of camera range) and a wicker trunk that functions both as a coffee table and storage for extra bedding.
Often with our clients, we provide a “wish list” of items they might add in the future as budget dictates. In this case we recommended a small entertainment console that will eventually house the TV and other electronics and be located under the picture hung intentionally high to accommodate the TV underneath. Completing the wish list was a lamp, a larger accessory and mirror for the top of the radiator where the TV is currently sitting.
We love redesigning small spaces. Creating multiple uses for a room along with making the space inviting, warm and comfortable is what our business is all about!
