It can be a bit difficult to style small spaces. Especially if you are purchasing new furniture. There you are standing in the GIGANTIC showroom/warehouse and the concept of size and space goes right out the window. "This table looks perfect!" you say. That is until you get it home and it is half again the size of the space. Take measurements of your room as well as a picture on your phone. This will help greatly when you are purchasing furniture.
Now you may be saying, "a duh!!" Well, yes, however you would be surprised how many folks don't think about that. Sometimes because they just happened to be out and decided to stop. Know your numbers, people!
