Keeping it Light: Decor Tips for Small Spaces

mirrored coffee table

Decorating a small room or space can come along with a variety of constraints. Many times you’ll find it difficult to cram all of your style into such a limiting square footage, but this can be mitigated by making a few sound design choices. While there are endless elements to consider, it’s best to start with the basics.

 

  1. Enhancing and utilizing light.
  2. Opting for neutrals with pops of color.
  3. Creating eye-grabbing focal points.

This set-up is a great example of small space design done right. Even if you don’t have a lot of windows (which in a small room is quite common), mirrors are an incredible way to capture light. While one might first think of mirrors for wall decor, this is far too limiting. Whether it’s a mirrored coffee table in your living room or a dresser in your bedroom, this little addition will bring light and reflection into your space.

By going with a neutral couch and pops of color in the pillows, this living room will have just enough personality without becoming overwhelming. By adding a few special touches to the coffee table, shells in this case, your eye is able to focus on something decorative rather than the small space at hand.

Happy decorating!

A Frame for Any Style: Our Inspiration & Top Picks

Picking the perfect theme and tying in the details can be one of the most challenging aspects of designing your home, and especially your bathroom. Depending on the size and style of your bathroom, your mirror should serve to perfectly complement your overall interior design inspiration. At Frame My Mirror, we try to make this a little easier for you by categorizing our frames in a variety of ways, from categories to color schemes. If you’re just getting started, it’s easiest to explore by category so that you can find the perfect fit for your mirror. Let’s take a peek at some of our favorite curated frames based on some of our recent bathroom and art inspiration!

 

TRADITIONAL
No art, no problem. This unique way of framing a naturally beautiful brick fireplace is a great example of creative decorating. If your decoration inspiration is more in line with classically beautiful frames such as these, you’ll likely find something to fit your bathroom style from our Traditional Collection. We suggest our Camden Reverse in Nickel or Navarro in Gold.

CONTEMPORARY
While a common theme for contemporary bathrooms is understated and polished decor, your bathroom may still look incomplete with just a basic mirror above your sink. This bathroom mirror is the perfect example of a much-needed modern frame. With light wood taking over as a coveted style, we suggest our Weston in Oak. On the other hand, going with a metallic is always a great choice to complement simple design, which you can find in our Edgecomb in Silver.
