Sometimes homeowners may find themselves in a small living space, and although they may not know how to maximize the limited size, The Wall Street Journal reports there are several ways that individuals in tiny quarters can maximize their area.

According to the news provider, one of the first things to consider is to strip the apartment or house of everything that can cause clutter. Interior design expert Cheryl Eisen recommends paying extra attention to the kitchen, removing any extraneous bits and pieces and simply leaving a fruit bowl placed on the kitchen table or counter.

Eisen also suggests taking a minimalist approach when it comes to colors and furnishings in a bedroom, and advises using bedding that is similar to that of a hotel room.

Homeowners looking to make the most out of a small abode may want to consider hanging roller shades as a way to simplify the decor. Along with providing an effective barrier from harsh sun, Better Homes and Gardens recommend roller shades because,when they are rolled up, they are hardly visible, so they will not dominate a room.
