Whether it was too big or too small, the wrong color or shape, or just didn’t fit in with your other furniture, that moment of realizing the piece you loved won’t work is disappointing.
A client recently reached out to me with this exact concern. There were a lot of big things she wanted in her new condo:
- A dedicated home office with space for dual monitors
- The ability to throw cozy and intimate dinner parties
- Space to host out-of-town friends and family visiting overnight
It may seem like a lot to accomplish in just 600 square feet of space, but I had big plans to make this a minimalist and functional area for her to work, relax, and entertain.
Creating A Space Plan
Have you ever seen the perfect piece of furniture, art, or home decor while shopping? You probably spotted it and immediately fell in love, knowing that you just had to have it and exactly where you wanted to put it. You bought it, brought it home…
… and it didn’t fit.
Whether it was too big or too small, the wrong colour or shape, or just didn’t fit in with your other furniture, that moment of realizing the piece you loved won’t work is disappointing.
A space plan helps you avoid that disappointment and create a strategy for your space. This is especially important for small spaces like this condo. A space plan allowed me to see what pieces of furniture would fit, and more importantly, where they would fit.
Taking the time to put that puzzle together meant more of those precious square feet could be used effectively.
