How to Furnish a Smaller Space

If you’re looking for Chicago furniture dealers, it’s likely that you’re trying to find new pieces to furnish a smaller space. For those of you who live in one to two bedroom apartments in and around the city, we’ve got the furniture you need to make your space feel like home—not a cramped and uncomfortable place you live.

One great way to furnish your home without overwhelming it is to purchase several plush chairs instead of a larger sofa or sectional. Chairs are a bit more versatile, and their smaller stature can make your space feel bigger. Purchase a few brown leather chairs and enjoy the comfort and openness of your living room.

Since your apartment isn’t all that big, you probably don’t have a specific dining room. That’s okay; just make use of a space near the kitchen and setup a small square table with three or four chairs. Just because you don’t have a ton of space doesn’t mean you need to forego a table altogether; it just means you need to get creative and find one that fits into your space comfortably.

Finally, when it comes to your bedroom, it’s likely that you’ll have limited closet space. That means you’ll probably want a dresser to store the rest of your clothing. Instead of using a large bulky dresser that covers up an entire wall, look for a vertical dresser with a lot of drawer space. You’ll still get the storage you need, but your bedroom won’t feel so cramped, and you’ll have plenty of space to maneuver.
