Interior designers in NYC arguably have a bigger challenge than their counterparts in areas of the country that are less lacking in space: Not only do they need to make every apartment look beautiful, they also need to pack in storage space while the space feels light and airy. In other words, not only do they have to be artists, they also have to be magicians. Find out how Décor Aid’s New York interior designers did these impressive feats and are learning how to do the same in your space no matter where you live.
Make the room bigger
Every New York resident craves more space, but without buying up your neighbors and tearing down walls is the best way to create the illusion of a larger space. The kitchen in this Manhattan apartment was dark and cramped, so our designer made it look brighter and more open with white walls and a white subway tile backsplash combined with gray glass front cabinets. If you store the devices under the counter, the surface remains clear and clear.
When you ask a NYC interior designer what customers are asking for the most (more space, of course), it’s easy. This Upper East Side living room already had lots of windows, so our lead designer enhanced the natural light with white walls, furniture and accessories in silver gray and white. He also opted for white curtains to filter but not block the sunlight.
Create multitasking areas
New Yorkers typically need every room in their apartment to do double (or triple) duty. Like a living room / kitchen / bedroom when it comes to studios. In this case, our Manhattan client worked from home and wanted to create an office space in her bedroom that was functional but also matched the existing design. Our designers worked with a contractor to create a built-in unit that wrapped around their room, offering both storage and desk space while blending seamlessly with the decor of the room.
