A small older home decorated with classic simplicity stirs up old world charm. Furnishings are chosen in keeping with the era of the home. furniture for the space was chosen to be cozy and inviting without, being cluttered. Keeping things relatively simple works well in this space. Having the living room / dining combination open to the kitchen allows for a greater sense of space and is a smart reno idea for small homes. The volume ceiling also helps to open things up and make the space seem larger than it is. Double decker cabinets in the kitchen are a smart choice when space will allow; its a great way to maximize the space that you have, and they are a terrific look in a older home. Of course, you’ll need a step ladder to climb all the way to the top, so save those cabinets for less used items. Last but not least, the crown molding throughout truly completes the look.
