6 safe-fire ways to maximize small spaces
Home decor ideas for small spaces
Just because you have a small space doesn't mean you can't live big in it. It is definitely tricky to design a small space or room, but there are ways to take advantage of your small headquarters.
There are little known ways to get the most out of your little home. The only problem is that you do not know most of them, especially not the most important ways. Here are some ideas and tips to help you design and not waste your valuable spaces:
Take advantage of natural lighting
You may not know it yet but natural light is your most trusted friend when maximizing your petite home. Let light come into your home and let it travel around to please your mood. Do not block the sunlight, choose a clean curtain or woven blinds to filter the rays. You must thank the Lord of Light for having a greater space illusion for your home.
Spice it with mirrors
Natural Light's best friend is mirrors. Let the light reflect on it and distribute the images in a maximized space through it. Placing mirrors on your walls is also a smart way to open up and give the illusion of a doubled space. The reflection is tricky enough to make sure you have a larger room.
Use. each. only. Place. creatively. The uncomfortable corners can be difficult to decorate, but there are creative ways to utilize the difficult but extra space. You can use it as a bookshelf, can be a bookcase or extra storage. You already have a small room, do not leave every inch of the surface unused.
Go white or another neutral palette
Create the illusion of a wide room by painting your walls white or neutral colors. This trick is best finished with natural lighting or just good lighting. Also add a splash of a light / bold colored or patterned item such as pillows, chairs, paintings / art decorations and the like.
Be creative with storage
You don't want to mess up your space with lots of stuff and leave them disorganized, right? The solution to that is to declutter (obviously): either throw away things you no longer need or store them. You can create drawers or shelves under or on the side of the stairs or add storage drawers under your bed. Think of unconventional ways to store your stuff and work on it.
Functional room dividers
Another solution to your storage problem is to choose a nice and functional room divider rather than ordinary and boring. Not only will it make the room move seamlessly, it is a wise and useful space that serves as storage space. .
