With the prices of condominiums going up in many large cities around the world, square footage continues to decrease, making it essential to know how to decorate and furnish a small space. With modern furniture, it’s possible to have beautiful and modern design without sacrificing square footage. There are many tips and tricks you can use to give the illusion of space in a small room, apartment, or condominium.
Designing a Small Space
When choosing a style and design for a small space like a condominium, the idea “less is more” always applies. There are many traditional pieces of furniture that can be replaced by smaller, more efficient pieces to give your condominium the feel of having more space.
Using modern bar stools at a kitchen counter (or island, if there is one) is a great alternative to having a dining room table. Most newer condominiums don’t have any space for a dining room or eat-in kitchen. Bar stools offer a modern look while taking up very little space in your kitchen.
Seating is always a top priority. If you have the space, choosing one modern sectional sofa can be a great way to provide ample seating without worrying about multiple pieces of furniture. If the space seems too cramped with a sectional sofa, using a variety of comfortable chairs can be a great way to save space. Choosing modern styles, colours, and designs for chairs can be a great way to create a unique look.
It’s important to have table space as well. Smaller coffee tables that can be positioned around the condominium, or night stands against walls can be great ways to create table space without the inconvenience of bulky pieces.
Choosing Modern Furniture
Once you’ve decided how to design your ‘cozy’ space, you can begin to choose modern furniture for your condominium that will provide enough function and comfort while still letting you have space in your home. sohoConcept produces pieces that are ideal for decorating condominiums.
The Tiffany Stool is a great option for a bar stool, and is available in black, brown, or grey bonded leather. The sleek design means you can fit multiple stools at a counter or island if you require more seating. Another option for bar stools are the Soho Metal Stools. The Soho Metal design offers a pop of colour for your kitchen.
If you have the space, the Simena Condo Sectional Sofa is a great way to provide seating for when guests visit. It is available in velvet or wool, depending on the durability you need. The Taxim Sectional Sofa is available with an ottoman which can be kept with the couch, or moved around easily to provide extra seating. This is a great option if you want to have a flexible modern design.
Both the Madison Plywood and Rebecca Wire chairs are small enough to fit in a condominium easily, but also provide comfort. If you’re looking for something even more comfortable, the Laguna Armchair or Istanbul Armchair are available in a variety of colours to give your condominium a modern style without sacrificing comfort. You can fit many of these chairs even in a small condominium without taking up a lot of space.
In a small area, using table space and storage space wisely is necessary. Our Alfa Nesting, Ares End Table, and Gakko End Table are all compact, easy to move, but provide table space for decor or for function. They all work great in a bedroom as nightstands, in the living room as coffee tables, or in the bathroom as storage. Our Malta collection provides great storage if closet space is lacking. The Malta Bookcase can double as a display case if you have decor you want to show off as well.
