Make a Crowded Space Livable

Madison Heights, VA - You know that room you have in your home that has a bunch of stuff piled up in it? It might be your garage, or a den, or just a room you have turned into storage. Well, we are going to show you how to flip that room and turn it back into a livable space with the help of interior decorator Moyanne Harding.

"The idea is to recreate it and make it more gorgeous," said Harding with Interiors by Moyanne.

We started with a crammed screened in porch down by the river.

"I think people don't realize that they can take a really tiny space and make it fabulous," said Harding.

Harding is here to show us how to make a crowded space feel more spacious, open and bright. 

"You can do this for nothing. And paint goes such a long way The main thing to keep in mind is organizing and hiding the clutter," said Harding.

She and her crew will flip this room by repainting, adding plants, fixing up the windows and adding a few personal touches. Over the course of a week they were able to transform the space.

"We've just kind of cleaned it up and made it a much more livable space," said Harding.

You can recreate this look too. Add baskets and cabinets to store things in. 

"Just a great place to hid things that you don't want to see cluttering up your space," said Harding.

Also look for multi functional pieces, like the bench which she highlights in the segment.

"It functions in two ways. It's also seating. You can do pretty pillows, change that out. The top also opens so you can put storage inside the bench," said Harding.

She and her crew whitewashed the entire space, and added an eating area, drapes and window blinds. The price for this total makeover?

"You're probably looking at maybe $200 to $300 and a lot of labor," said Harding.

Moyanne says to add art work that fits into your theme.
