Downsizing and Doing It Right

There are many reasons for downsizing your living quarters.  Maybe you recently became an “empty nester” or maybe you have gone through a major life change.  Maybe you have simply decided that it’s now time to scale down and have a home that requires less upkeep and maintenance.  There are many reasons that you may no longer want or need a large house.

Well, we have good news for you…………you CAN downsize to a smaller living space and still have a beautiful and welcoming home.  Downsizing can be rewarding and freeing but it can also be very daunting.  This is where a professional designer comes in by guiding you to make wise design decisions. 

Designers have a lot of tricks up their sleeve like, using mirrors to make small spaces seem much larger than they are…or recommending you use a small desk at the foot of your bed instead of a bench….much more practical!  A good designer knows that light, even-toned painted rooms fool the eye into thinking they are larger than they really are; you just have to know exactly which paint colors to choose.   It may sound counterintuitive but using a few large scale furnishing (rather than a lot of small pieces) can actually make a space feel larger and more grand!   These are just a few of the designer’s tricks of the trade that can take your small space, whether it’s an apartment or small condo, into a little jewel of a home. The designers at Yessick’s are experts at all this and more!
