Decorating Small Spaces

Decorating small spaces such as older mobile homes can be a challenge. Many manufactured home owners face struggles when attempting to decorate their homes as they often face a larger challenge regarding space and creating the appearance of space than do their neighbors with site-built houses. Fortunately, there are some useful techniques that you can use to make sure that you can achieve your decorating goals even within a limited amount of space.

Begin decorating small spaces by de-cluttering your home. The less you have in the way, the more space you’ll have to work with and the more able you will be to decide which décor elements you can include in a given room. De-cluttering doesn’t just mean straightening things up. It means that you will need to remove as many unnecessary items as you possibly can. This can include everything from unused kitchen tools to clothing and previous decorating accessories.

Once you’ve de-cluttered, you need to clean and straighten things up. This will give you an idea as to what needs to be stored, what furniture you will need or want, and how much space you’ll have to work with. Then you can start decorating small spaces and rooms in your home.

When your room is clear and clean, you can start to consider elements of your decorating.  Is there a specific style, theme, or color that appeals to you?  What kind of atmosphere are you trying to create? Keep in mind that when you’re attempting to give the impression that a space is larger, you should be using light, cool colors.  Soft pastel colors will give your manufactured home the feeling of being airy and open.  Mobile home decorating does very well when you use shades all from the same family of colors.

Work with as much light as you possibly can.  Gain as much light from your windows as you can and add lighting using lamps and sconces, too.  The more you can maximize the amount of natural light and the light fixtures you can install, the larger the space will feel.  The smaller the space, the more light you will want to use in its decorating.

Similarly, when you are dressing the windows, try to avoid anything heavy, such as thick, dark drapes.  Anything bulky will only block the light (even when they’re open) and take up space on the wall which will make the room appear to be smaller than it is.  Remember that you’re looking for a light and airy appearance, not something anchored down.

Select your furniture carefully.  Use furniture that is sized appropriately for the space and that will be practical as well as you don’t have space to waste.

Did you know Lavender has

     Culinary uses

Culinary lavender is usually English Lavender, the most commonly used species in cooking. As an aromatic, it has a sweet fragrance with a taste of lemon or citrus notes. It is used as a spice or condiment in pastas, salads and dressings, and desserts. Their buds and greens are used in teas, and their buds, processed by bees, are the essential ingredient of monofloral honey.
