It doesn’t matter whether a house is small or big, what matters is how you feel about it. A small room can be just as beautiful and useful as a large one — size is no guarantee of beauty or power. The important thing is to know how you can make the most of the living space available to you.
You can’t do without furniture and storage space in your house. Simultaneously, you need to be careful about the quality and quantity of the items you place in the rooms. After all, you don’t want to feel crowded in your own house. It’s uncomfortable to live in a cluttered space and it’s also not pleasing to the eye.
Given below are some tips on how you can use a small space effectively to your advantage.
Light and color
Use cool colors like green and blue for the walls. Warm colors like reds and yellows will seem as if the walls are closing in on you. Also, transparent, light curtains will make the room more comfortable as it will let in light and air.
Make good use of the walls in the room. Add small shelves to hold items like lamps, books or display figurines. Showpieces that are never used can be placed on top of wardrobes instead of separate tables or glass cabinets.
An ideal way to save space is to use furniture that has dual uses. For example, a sofa-cum-bed creates extra sleeping space instead of having an additional folding bed.
Coffee tables can double as storage space for magazines or newspapers. A TV cabinet can have drawers for storing clothes and books. The space under the bed can be used for drawers to store clothes and linen that are rarely used.
Small and cozy
Create a feeling of warmth and coziness by adding rugs, blankets and pillows of rich colors. People will love the room for its snug and pleasant feel and forget about its size.
So make your small house a home by enhancing its beauty with love and creativity.
