Designing for Small Smart Spaces

Small living spaces present special challenges, as they must be both functional and visually appealing. Most people have at least one small living space, whether it is a room or an entire condo. For first time buyers or downsizers, the solution is to visually open the area and make each component of the space serve multiple purposes. Come and hear from Canadian award winning Interior Designers from IDC on how they have achieved successful solutions for their residential clients.
