Top 5 Springtime Design Tweaks To Brighten Up Your Small Space
Spring is a great time of the year to take a closer look at your small space and come up with a number of simple but effective design tweaks to make it feel bigger and more inviting. Opting for a change in color, adding a new textural layer, or just opening up the space to natural light – all of these can have a huge impact on how people perceive your space. Here are five ways to instantly refresh your small space for spring.
1: Add indoor plants
Indoor plants are remarkably effective at injecting a sense of life and dynamism to any space, no matter how small. One way to do this is creatively by using woven baskets to contain them. This enables you to place them on shelves, tables or even the floor. For example, if you are looking for a dramatic look, you might use one of our bold, massive Bountiful Baskets for a statement floor plant. And, if you are looking to liven up a wall space for a #shelfie, you could use a strong, durable Arrow Hanging Basket Set.
2: Make your window spaces more dramatic
To really open up your space and make it feel bigger, think about making your windows a centerpiece of any room. To let as much natural light as possible into the room, try hanging curtain rods just inches from the ceiling and letting curtains hang all the way to the floor. You could also add a seating area near a window that gets a lot of natural light.
3: Add textures and layers
One instant design tweak that you can make is simply adding new visual layers to a room. The way to do this is with different textures. Woven baskets work very well here. For example, our Seagrass Basket with macramé bottom is a great way to restore order in your home while simultaneously adding a creative, textural layer to any room. These woven wonders instantly add a sense of balance to your space.
4: Re-think your walls
A new wall color can have a dramatic impact. Instead of a neutral color, think of a bold, transformative color that can create a new mood for a room. Springtime pastels can also work quite well, especially when paired with woven baskets that help to create a casual, relaxed “straight from the beach” vibe.
5: Get creative about your storage
When looking to tidy up your space, follow the universal rule of organizing popularized by Marie Kondo – keep everything that sparks joy when you hold it in your hands, and throw away everything else. Once you’ve decided which objects bring you happiness, it’s time to find smart storage solutions for them. A Melbourne Jar Basket Set, for example, is both decorative and functional, and can be used to organize very small objects.
With these five simple design tweaks, you can instantly brighten up any small space. Creative storage options – ranging in size from jar baskets to bountiful baskets – can be used to add texture and a new creative aesthetic to any room. At the same time as they are storing all of your wonderful treasures, they are also helping to refresh your space for springtime.
