    • Living Room Before

      Tip #1: Clean Up and Clean Out To start your small space redesign, get rid of what is not a necessity. This will help you get the room down to the basics.

    • Living Room After

      Tip #2: Streamline Bulky Products From a design perspective, technology can often take up a great deal of room, especially in a small space. The Philips Ambilight FlatTV shown here is one smart way to streamline a room's look.

    • Bedroom Before

      Tip #3: Bring in Natural Light Another key element to a room is lighting. To bring in more natural lighting, consider removing bulky or dated window treatments. Changing out lighting fixtures can also help brighten up the room.

    • Bedroom After

      Tip #4: Use Color The background of any room is color. Painting a room is the most dramatic and inexpensive way to change the look of the room, large or small. Particularly in a small space, you shouldn't be afraid to work with color, even dark colors.

    • Bathroom Before

      Tip #5: Create a Look Book Collect inspiring ideas from rooms in magazines, catalogs, notes from TV shows, movies, etc. When it comes time to make decisions, you'll have a creative direction at your fingertips.

    • Bathroom After

      Tip #6: Determine a Theme If you don't know what your style is, determine a theme for the room. Themes help simplify your styling needs, such as a beach house theme, New York loft, or perhaps a country cottage.

    • Patio Before

      Tip #7: Rearrange Your Space Rework and rearrange what you currently have in a space. Whether it's a living room or patio, aim to create different inviting spaces.

    • Patio After

      Tip #8: Accentuate and Accessorize Don't feel compelled to buy all new stuff for a different look. Redesigning can be as simple as focusing your budget on buying accessories such as throw pillows, plants, and candles.
