Great Ideas for Decorating a Narrow Space

If you end up with a living room or a bedroom that’s really narrow, with one side much longer than the other, it will probably turn out to be a challenge to decorate. Since houses and apartments come in all shapes and sizes, we’re sharing some tips for decorating a narrow space today.

Create Zones

A long and narrow room will look the best if you “divide” it into zones. If you’re decorating a living room, you can create a relaxation zone with a chair and bookcase, a play corner for the kids and a TV zone with a comfy sofa against the TV.

Use White Space

If you push all the furniture against the walls and put a narrow rug in the middle, you’ll only emphasize the shape of the room. Play around with the layout and let each item of furniture “breathe” by leaving enough blank space around it.

Get Those Corners

Find the best shelving solutions for your needs that you can put in the corners. This will give you some much needed storage space without cluttering the main space.

Dzień dobry! 🍁 . Od kilku dni przetrząsam internet w poszukiwaniu inspiracji i ozdób świątecznych. Uwielbiam tę magię bożonarodzeniowej atmosfery w domu. ❤️ Mam już w głowie tysiące pomysłów na dekoracje. A w sklepach kusi tyle pięknych ozdób – można dostać oczopląsu. 🤩 Przydałby się jedynie niemały zastrzyk gotówki… 💰 Już nie mogę się doczekać choinki, światłek i tych wszystkich innych świątecznych dekoracji. 😍 . Wy też myślicie już o Świętach? 😏 . Udanego wieczoru! 🍂 . . . #corazbliżejświęta #teatime #livingroominspo #mycozyplace #whitedecor #neutraldecor #rustichomedecor #autumn #homedecorideas #hyggetime #hyggehome #diningroomideas #diningroom #homedecorations #interior4u #ikeaatmine @ikeauk @ikeapolska #ikeahack #houseinterior #dekoracjawnętrz #polish @westwingpl #homebook

Light Colors

It’s an unwritten rule that this type of rooms looks best when decorated with light colors. Make sure you let plenty of natural light in for the best effect.
