Today let’s discuss small things. I love when I challenge myself and work on a small area and tend to enjoy finding solutions to a space full of functions yet cozy and enjoyable.
Here are few tips I usually follow whenever planning a small space.
“Mirror Mirror on the wall”
Doubling the sense of space and brightening up the room are the two main purposes behind the use of mirrors in any small space. Nothing new, right?Metallics can do a similar job too! Just like mirrors they can reflect and create a charming mood with the shiny metal finishing.
Storage in style
Great storage is certainly key in a small space.
You can hide away the everyday stuff and clear the area to a decorative touch. Extend your cupboard and shelving to the ceiling where you can store stuff that you don’t regularly need on the higher level.
If the space is tight use the walls to install some floating shelves instead of a big bookcases. Big pieces of furniture will add a heavy feel to the space in contrary to floating shelves that will do a much more interesting yet creative storage.
Tables, benches, couches… any furniture piece can have multiple usages. Maximize the space with tables that can be converted into stools, or a couch that can be unfolded into a bed.
Paint it right
There’s no golden rule that forces you to always paint a small space in white. White is safe but you can always go dark! Dark walls do the opposite of what you’d expect: They make a small room feel bigger. And if you paint the ceiling in the same color as the walls, the space will feel much bigger.
Go confident… Go BIG
Yes big! As weird as this sounds, statement pieces will make your room bigger. From art, sculpture, lamps… any large-scale furniture will trick the eye and make you see the room much more bigger.
Final and intelligent trick
Bulk and heavy sofas and couches will make the space feel heavy. One simple trick can change everything: legs for your sofas. Legs will elevate your furniture and make it feel lighter.
