Rearrange, Revamp, Restore: How to Make Small Spaces Feel Large

When you bought your home, it may have felt quite large with just you and your spouse, but once you started filling it with a few kids, an accumulation of belongings, and perhaps a few pets, it may have started to feel like the rooms are shrinking. Some days probably feel a little claustrophobic, and it may be hard to figure out how all that stuff got there, and how to get rid of it, so your home feels like a sanctuary again.

You don’t have to sacrifice a lot of things in order to reclaim that feeling of open, comfortable spaces in your home. It might be time to get rid of a few things, and swap out some old favorites for newer versions that will fit your lifestyle and space restrictions. Here are a few ideas to help you rearrange, revamp, and restore your sense of home.

Shrink Your Furniture
If your small rooms are full of large, bulky furniture, it’s not too difficult to determine how to maximize your space. Perhaps that four-poster bed or gigantic sectional looked nice in the store, but once they came through your door, you were faced with the problem of furniture taking over your home. Sell that thing at a garage sale, or a used furniture listing site, and start over. Did you know it’s easier to clean and more motivating when your furniture fits your space? Rooms also look less cluttered even when a bit of mess accumulates, because there are more open spaces that balance out the disorganization. So, replace that big couch with a two seater sofa, reduce that king-size bed to a queen, take out that gigantic dining room table and replace it with an adjustable table to meet all your needs and give you the space to feel refreshed.

Clear the Clutter
Understandably, spaces feel fuller when there’s no open space between furniture, and all surfaces are covered with stuff. If you’ve got furniture pieces pushed up against other furniture pieces all around the room, it’s hard to stage your room in all its beauty, because the eye doesn’t know where to look. Everything just flows together. Remove unneeded furniture pieces, and pare down your decorations to just a few key pieces that reflect your sense of style and generate conversation among your guests. Stage the remaining furniture pieces by centering them on a wall and adding a few -- just a few -- accents like two or three brightly colored pillows or a throw blanket. Pare down items on shelves, showcasing a few with open space around them, and pack up the rest. If you’re unable to part with the items, pack them up in storage and swap them out later when you need a change.

Home Garden Landscaping on Limited Budget and Space


Money doesn’t grow on trees. When designing the landscaping of your home garden, you may be wishing that the cash could flow faster than the water from your garden hose so you can create the perfect garden space. Of course, who doesn’t want a beautiful garden that has flowers of every color from every season, beautiful fountains and a little corner for growing your own herbs and vegetables?

The major problem most people face in realizing this dream is budget and space. Unfortunately, only a few people understand that both the issues can be solved with a little consideration. There are, however, a number of things where it is best to invest in something that is long-lasting rather than cheap. For instance, select one time investments include pond pumps for fountains. presents a line-up of different types of pond pumps and also answers some of the most common questions you need to answer before buying such equipment for your garden.

While there are plenty of areas where the value lies in longevity rather than affordability, there are also plenty of other things where you can save some real cash. So, let’s take a look at some garden landscaping tips that will help you save money as well as space:

Make a Plan – Before you buy any plants and equipment, you first need a plan. It is effective for saving both on cost and space. Starting off like a professional won’t hurt you, but first think of your plan and then try to draw it on paper. Even if your rough draft doesn’t look like anything a professional would draw, it will give you a good idea of what elements the project will require and how you should place them.

Show some Sunlight – If your garden gets enough natural light, you will be able to save a lot on artificial lighting. Natural light also creates an illusion of space and room. However, there are plants that grow better in low sunlight. So, you should consider how much light your garden gets before finding the right kind of plants for it.

Collect what you Can – You don’t necessary need to buy everything. You can find plenty of DIY gardening projects and you can also seek some help from nature. For instance, if you need beautiful pebbles and rocks for your pond, try searching for them while taking a stroll down the shore.

Save for Seasons – There are a number of plants that are only good for one part of the year and will remain dead or relatively unattractive for the rest of the year. And contrary to that, there are plants that bloom throughout the year. The latter can really help you keep your garden attractive without much effort.

Shop Online – There may be only one gardening shop in your area, but the internet is crowded with vendors that offer unbelievable offers and competitive rates. You can find everything ranging from pond pipes to aquatic plants. Another reason to shop online is the ease and ability to compare different products.

*** REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: ellembee Clothing *** (CLOSED)

One of the things that I love in this life is fashion. I enjoy wearing beautiful items and having lots of pieces in my wardrobe. Oh this womanhood :) And today, I'm very pleased that I will introduce you to a great Etsy store called ellembee. Lisa, wonderful owner of this store sent me a Lacy Revival on Black Long Sleeve Wrap in size L for review ($44 value). It was my choice, and you see that my love of black color shows itself here, too ;)

"This is the second colorway for this super fabulous wrap! It is so comfy and versatile. You can wear it with sexy jeans and heels on a date, or pair it with slacks and wear it to work!"

I wore this light-weight screen-printed wrap during the weekend inside my jacket (the weather was a little cold). I went to a open-air pub with my bandmates. First, I wore my jacket alone, and I felt really cold. Then I wore this inside and it made me feel warm very well. The fabric is of very good quality; I loved its feeling.
PS: It was a little large for me, but this was my choice, because I couldn't be sure as I'm losing weight.

It has a large collar, so it keeps the neck warm and supported. With the collar, I can even cover my head in the cold weather, really! The lacy pattern printed on it is of a lovely design. It reminds me of ethnic clothes. The sleeves are very long due to its nature, but it can be worn as they are, or by rolling them up. In this piece, I especially love the front side which hangs freely in a cool way! It looks really nice inside black leather jacket and with a pair of white jeans and black knee-high boots. This will be my favorite seasonal piece of clothing from now on.
