Living in a small apartment, home or room can make you browse the entire web searching for ways to make it more liveable and less congested. You don’t have to compromise on a good lifestyle because the floor plan doesn’t support it.
In this blog, we will arm you with creative ideas to help you live large. So let’s begin!
Invest in Storage Beds
Rent or purchase storage beds, with either in-built drawers or at least some space beneath to store baskets of goods. You can store your winter clothes or blankets and bed sheets in it. This can help in saving up closet and wardrobe space.
Declutter and Denounce
Sort out and throw everything that doesn’t bring you joy. Follow the steps of Marie Kondo and embrace the minimalist lifestyle. Instead of buying rent out furniture, such as side tables, so that when you have outgrown it you can just rent another side table instead of collecting and cluttering.
Use Light Color Palette
Using light colors can create the illusion of a larger and more expansive space. If you are renting a flat and the color of the walls is something that is out of your control then try investing in light-colored furniture. Now, we know buying all the furniture of the same color can be a costly affair, but that is why we have online furniture rentals.
The Curtain Illusion
Hang your curtains a little higher than the normal height, and place them a little closer to the ceilings and a little above the windows. This will create an illusion of a larger and more spacious room. If you don’t believe it then try it for yourself and see the magical illusions simple placements can create
Tone It Down
Subtle and gentle tones and hues in the fabric can make the room feel more breathable. Dark hues especially in comforters and fabrics make the space look smaller, gloomy and stuffy. Fill in your room with sunlight, light hues and fresh air.
You might have heard that wearing stripes can make you look bigger and fatter, but the same might be the case with your living space. Having rugs with stripes can make your area look elongated and wide. So, don’t wait any longer just stripe your rugs up!
Hang In There
Put nooks and hooks all around the house and use them to their fullest. Hang whatever you can, from towels to plants. This creates more space for other items and furniture. Also, it is a smart way to store all your goods and belongings.
Give it Space
It is almost tradition to have the sofa against the wall, but hear us out – Place the sofa a few inches away from the wall. The breathing space between the sofa and the wall can be a refreshing change which makes a huge difference in the overall space and look of your living room.
A small space should not hold off your creative pursuits of decorating, redecorating and having an aesthetically pleasing living space. Therefore, we suggest that instead of buying furniture, rent it instead. Why? Well, one of the reasons is that the Interior Space fashion just like any regular fashion keeps on changing with time. Investing huge chunks each time can sore up your wallet. So, experiment with furniture without investing a great deal of money in rentals.
