Tips For Decorating A Small Cabin


If you own a small cabin to use for vacation or to rent out during the year, you might worry about how to decorate it. People who visit cabins tend to expect a certain woodsy style. The only problem is that when the cabin is very small, that woodsy, wooden furniture style might make the cabin seem smaller than it really is and claustrophobic. You want to meet people's expectations but also ensure that they are comfortable. Here are some tips for decorating a small cabin.

1. Use Furniture With Thinner Legs

Your first step is to invest in that wooden furniture that most people expect in a cabin but ensure that the furniture that you buy has thinner legs. This is helpful because it will allow you to increase the amount of space that it seems like your cabin has while still populating it with furniture. Thinner legs makes it seem like the furniture is taking up less space than it really is, making it far easier for you to decorate.

2. Use Decorations That Hug the Walls

Next, make sure that you are investing in decorations for your cabin that hug the walls. You don't want to waste space on a knick-knack cabinet. Instead, invest in wall hangings, tapestries, and paintings that fit your cabin's rustic style without causing any problems for you. This will allow you to decorate your cabin without taking up any additional space.

3. Have Bookshelves Built Into the Walls

Leave games and books for you and your guests to peruse by building bookshelves and filling them with interesting things. However, make sure that those bookshelves are built into the wall, rather than are jutting out of the wall. If you build the bookshelves into the wall, they will take up less space and therefore allow your small cabin to seem larger than it really is.

4. Separate Rooms Using Curtains Rather Than Walls

Finally, separate rooms using curtains, rather than walls. This will allow you to open up the curtains when privacy is not needed and make the cabin seem to double in size. If you have walls, you don't have the option to make small rooms larger. However, curtains give you the best of both worlds.

Crafting To Relieve Tension

About three months ago, I realized that the level of stress I was experiencing wasn't normal. I was always frustrated and stressed about something or other, and I didn't want to feel on edge all the time. I decided to seek out natural ways to calm down, and my therapist recommended crafting. I decided to take a local art class, and it was an absolute blast. I was able to completely let go of my worries and turn my anger and frustration into something beautiful for my home. This blog is all about the benefits of crafting and having fun hobbies.
