What Houzz contributors are saying:
It’s harder to have your own space. If you live with your partner, moving to a smaller abode means more time spent face to face. Retired empty nesters who’ve planned ahead do well to develop separate interests (to give each other space and things to talk about), as well as activities they like to do together (retirees who play together stay together).The upside: You may have a smaller home and fewer opportunities for time on your own, but you’ll also have fewer rooms that need cleaning.
Choose a cohesive color palette. Charcoal painted kitchen cabinets create a furniture-like effect that complements the neutral pieces in this 6- by 15-foot space. The entire room is painted in Benjamin Moore's Cloud White. The media credenza and dining table, both from Design House, share the same blonde wood that helps to highlight the room's surrounding blue accents, while the Calligaris L'eau chairs don't try to compete with any of it.
9. Choose the right scale. Appropriately scaled furniture can make the difference between a space that feels awkward and one that feels comfortable and homey. In a small space, choose the largest pieces you can while allowing ample room to walk around them. Pieces that are too small will only feel uncomfortable. In a large space, go bigger with the furniture — but keep it human-scale. Some sofas and chairs on the market today are so humongous that an average person is swamped sitting in them!Work with an interior designer to select and arrange your furniture
3. Keep track of multiple listings with a comparison checklist. When you are hitting half a dozen open houses in a single morning, they begin to run together. Keep pertinent info neatly sorted on a single checklist and snap a picture of each place to accompany it, if possible.
