5 Ways to Add Luxurious Home Details to a Small Space


Not everyone lives in a large house with lots of space and plenty of rooms to fill with gorgeous, luxury furnishings. Even if you live in a small house or a condominium with limited space, you can still have a luxurious interior design that won't feel cramped. Our luxury furniture store at the Lake of the Ozarks has the items you need to make that happen, and today's blog has a few tips to make your living space and the pieces you find at John Elliott Interiors work together beautifully.

Large Scale Art & Mirrors
One large statement piece of art alone on a single wall offers a focal point that adds beauty to the room and makes a big impact. Also, a few cleverly placed mirrors will make a room seem larger than it actually is. The mirror will amplify light in the room and break up visual clutter in small spaces. When placed behind furniture or across from a window, mirrors will create the illusion that the room is much larger.

Less is More
Keep your styling simple in a small space because too many decorations can overwhelm the room and make it appear cluttered. Scale your collections down to a few favorite pieces and store extra items out of sight until you are ready to switch them out for a fresh look or with the season. When there is less to look at, the items that you do have on display will take center stage and get the attention they deserve. You can also furnish the room with cabinets that have doors that can be closed to hide things that don't always need to be seen, such as a television or a small bar setup.

Intrigue the Eye
You want to have interesting elements that draw a person's eye and add personal touches to the space. The addition of moldings bring dimension to your walls and give them an upscale look, traditional and elegant. One bold side chair with a unique pattern or textile makes a very grand statement. Don't me afraid to mix patterns too with pillows and throws. A very large rug in a small room makes it feel bigger, and an interesting pattern can bring in some of the texture we are talking about. 

Lengthen the Drapes
A wonderful trick for making a small space both seem larger and much more luxurious is to hang drapes that reach all the way to the floor. It will make the ceiling seem higher adding to the illusion that the space is larger than it truly is. Choosing drapes made with a rich fabric is an easy way to add luxury too. 

Add Sculptured Items
If you have a room with lots of straight lines from the furniture and the decorations on your walls, add luxurious pieces that have unique shapes and stand out among the flatter elements of the room. You could choose a sofa with a curved back or seat shape, a coffee table made from a tree, or actual sculptures. These artistic touches will bring depth and interest to the entire room. 

Those are just a few simple tips and tricks that can make a small, boring space seem larger and more luxurious. Our interior designers at the Lake of the Ozarks are always here to give advice and share their expertise for making any room the most beautiful space you have ever set eyes on.
