1. Kill two birds with one stone

When downsizing, it is important to maximize space by having multi-functional rooms. If your home isn’t large enough to accommodate an eating area and an office, have your kitchen island work as both.

To keep up with daily wear, such as sliding pots and pans, plates, spills and more, look to a high performance countertop such as Neolith. This material is scratch, heat and stain-resistant. It’s also non-porous and hygienic, so there’s no need to worry about cross-contamination on office papers by day and food by night.

 

2. Remember: Less is more 

It is common tendency to want to fill a space with multiple small pieces of furniture. However, design savvy professionals recommend using fewer, yet larger pieces to furnish living rooms, bedrooms and dining rooms because it creates an illusion of space. 
Additionally, oversized art, large mirrors, floating sinks and toilets, and an open shower also work wonders in transforming small spaces. 

3. Make a statement

When designing a small space like a bathroom, carefully selected wall colors can make a huge difference. To really make a statement, think beyond paint with unexpected textures, designs and materials such as Neolith sintered stone in the La Boheme design. This decor is an accurate interpretation of Lebanese-inspired cedar that adds visual interest and is much easier to maintain than its natural counterpart.

 

4. Bring only what you love

It It may seem obvious, but when moving or scaling back on your next home, be sure to take an inventory of everything you own, and only bring items that make you happy. Without the extra storage space larger homes afford, downsizing is a great opportunity to really ask yourself, “Do I love this and do I need it?” When you have only the possessions you love surrounding you in your new space, it will automatically feel bigger.
