Windows bring natural light pouring into a room, making it look more open and bright. If you’re bored with curtains, try hanging ivy or potted plants around or in front of  a window to give a layered, filtered look.

Do you have any unique ideas or tips on how to maximize your small spaces?

    I'm just learning about this because I am just now downsizing from 2400 sq ft to 1300 on three levels. I do know that calling the title "cramped" is not a good start. I'm moving to Italy where small is the norm and social life is centered on the community outdoors spaces rather than the home. I just think Americans are very spoiled and are just now seeing how this is affecting the whole world. Let's call it "Intimate" not "cramped".
