Tips for Helping a Small Space Feel Bigger

Zane by England Furniture's SoHo Living line

In honor of our launch of SoHo Living, a line of England Furniture that caters to smaller spaces, we’re providing tips to make that tiny space feel bigger than it actually is. Whether you live in an apartment, condo, or you just have limited space in your living room, these tips can really help open up the room.

1. Fresh light paint

A new coat of paint does wonders for a room. Choose a light airy color to make your space feel more open.

2. Mirrors

Use mirrors to brighten a space! Adding a large mirror can completely change your room, injecting light and a sense of space where previously there was none.

3. Use décor items

Using pieces to highlight walls is a great way to add character without taking up too much space. Decorate with small items and neutral art for a less cluttered feel.

4. Ottomans

A storage ottoman can be the perfect way to hide things like magazines or extra throws, so you’ll feel like your space is messy less often.

5. Sleeper sofa

Do you frequently host guests? Turn your living room into a guest room with a sleeper sofa.

6. Storage pieces

Cocktail tables and dressers that are lifted off the floor create an illusion of more floor space.

7. Curtains

Hang your curtains to the ceiling! This helps elongate the room and makes it feel much taller than it really is.

8. Shelves

Use open shelving such as floating shelves or ladder shelves. These are great storage solutions when you don’t want to take up precious floor space!

9. Rugs

Layering rugs can add depth and texture to your small space. It takes up no space and will give a sense of style without taking up any valuable room.

10. Lighting

Wall mounted lighting can be your best friend. Instead of table and floor lamps, mounted lighting can free up your space.

Falling into Autumn with England Furniture

LucaCollection

Along with apple picking, pumpkin carving, leaf raking and all of those other fun fall activities, a great way to celebrate autumn is by refreshing inside your home. Leather sofas and chairs can instantly warm up your space and make it feel cozier on those cool, fall nights.

Adding shades of red, yellow, orange and brown to the room can really get you caught up if saying goodbye to summer is difficult. Fall décor is in and the pool is officially closed until next season. Harvest wreaths and blooming mums are ready to take over the outside while you reconsider the inside. Additions as simple as soft blankets and throw pillows, to an entire fireplace redesign, are ways to revamp your space.

As always, new furniture can never hurt and can make a room feel like new, giving you a burst of energy and inspiration. New furniture doesn’t always have to mean purchasing an entire new collection, but adding an ottoman such as the England Furniture Hermosa Ottoman can do the trick. Other great ideas include adding an accent chair such as the England Furniture Ember Chair or the Leonard Arm Chair, if you are going for a more formal look.

No matter the choices you make, decorating for autumn should be a fun, family-friendly activity. With these simple tips from England Furniture, falling into autumn will be a breeze!

England Furniture Reviews Picking the Perfect Furniture Fabric

03EnglandFindingTheRightColor

When you’re redecorating, one of the first things you might do is set a color palate. Once you have a combination of colors in mind, and you set out to find the furniture, paint and lighting to fit your vision, you may run into a road block. Selecting the fabric to upholster a piece of furniture might be a challenge when given so many options. Here, England Furniture reviews things to consider when choosing fabric for your new furniture.

Bring Samples with You
Whether it’s a swatch of fabric or a paint chip, keeping these samples in your purse or wallet may help you when inspiration strikes. If you see a pillow or other room accessory at a store, you can get a better idea of how the colors might look together using paint chips and fabric swatches.

Avoid Sticking to Trends
Your home will stand the test of time, but often, trends do not. Instead of including trends that you do not totally love in your home, opt for fabrics that you are drawn to. Consider colors that have made you happy throughout your life.
