Living in New York City, you’re bound to be short on space. Now add three little kids to the mix. Which is why Brianne Manz, blogger at Stroller in the City, asked our design services team for help creating a shared space that her family could use for work and play.
- Utilize vertical space by adding storage on the wall such as book ledges, shelves, wall bins, etc.
- Choose pieces of furniture that are designed for small spaces. Our Sloane Desk and Bookcase add a work area and storage without taking up much space.
- Pick a clear element to add furniture or storage without adding much visually. Try our Acrylic Desk Chair, Acrylic Bookcase or Acrylic Shelves.
- Pops of black adds dimension and texture to the space.
- Keep it light and airy, don’t use fabrics that are heavy.
- Add additional lighting (think floor lamps and table lamps) to make the space feel larger.
