Have a peek at the recent Redfin article Sarah Swanson Design was featured in:

Anyone who lives in a small space is faced with the same dilemma – how can we maximize our home’s layout to give the illusion of more space? And if you live in a cozy New York City loft or a chic apartment in Toronto, ON, these small spaces can often become hosts to clutter hotspots. However, with a bit of styling TLC, small spaces and tiny nooks can be a treasure trove of design possibilities with the right accessories.

Redfin reached out to myself and other design experts for our best tips and tricks to transform small spaces into usable and functional areas. From double-duty furniture to small space design hacks to trick the eye, check out my tip to add style and function to those empty spaces in your home.

To make a small space seem visually bigger, try using a neutral tonal palette and adding lots of texture. A small space doesn’t mean your furnishings need to be small – think less furniture but cozy and comfortable. Also, maximize storage and have a place for everything – less visual clutter gives a serene and calming feel. –Sarah Swanson Design
