Many get disheartened when a small space is all they can afford, I on the other hand, get really excited. Small spaces are a fun challenge, and, takes much less to decorate. Small spaces allows the interior designer in you to shine your brightest. How can I arrange furniture to allow roomy-ness? What unique smart ideas do I have up my sleeve to create more storage? How can I allow a small space to portray a mood of country-comfort without overcrowding?
I often peruse the Dwell website to get my fill of pictures and ideas, here's one article that I think every interior lover can appreciate, "True Value" of a small space, an article by Aaron Britt regarding a small 516-square foot studio apartment located in the Slovak Republic, which was renovated for roughly $23,000, into this rather charming bachelor-style flat.

|Open shelving adds an extra charm and gives the area an open feel while at the same time smartly doubling as a wall|
divider, a great way to create the feeling that there are separate rooms when dealing with one large space.
|The use of sheer light friendly window coverings is a big plus as darkness isn't very friendly to small spaces and has a|
tendency to make spaces feel smaller.
|The hanging pots and pans is a great storage alternative but also lends height.|
|Adding greenery is a great way to add freshness. Though I would have gone with a couple of larger potted tree plants|
keeping the window sill clear and clean, this will do in the meantime.
