The interior of a house is a reflection of its inhabitants. However, in cramped urban cities, it is hard to find spacious homes. But that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your aesthetics. These small space design ideas are lifesavers for all those who live in small houses but dream big.
Think Big, Shrink It
Space-saving furniture is key to small home décor. Why get a dining table when a coffee table can fit both of you? Guest rooms aren’t a reality anymore. Get a sofa-cum-bed instead and have your living room double as a guest encloser.
Instead of getting a TV cabinet, get a wall mount LED instead. Similarly, nobody needs a desk taking up half of your room space. Try a wall desk.
Simple, yet elegant, designs help save space. A fancy coffee table with carving might catch your eye, but two small round tables do the trick too. In fact, they can be arranged any way you see fit for every other purpose.
Use a large cupboard instead of multiple cabinets. They have much more interior space and only occupy a single space. Similarly, use a bathtub cum shower instead of a separate cubicle.
Kitchen cum Dining Space
Integrated kitchen and dining make for an excellent space-saver. At the same time, it feels more personal. There are many modular kitchen setups that are built with dining space just for this purpose.
Besides, who doesn’t love to cook with their loved ones?
An integrated living foyer is a wonderful idea to help save some more space. Use the front porch or the balcony as your living room instead of trying to find space within the home area.
Not only does this save you space, but it also allows you to enjoy the sights outside of your four walls.
This is a very old trick. Mirrors make any space look bigger. The reflection feels like an extension. Use wisely placed mirrors to create some virtual space.
For example, place a mirror right opposite to your dining space. Every time you will look at the reflection, you feel like you are in a larger space.
Sliding Doors and Windows
Use sliding systems between spaces to save up. A door or a window takes up considerable space when open. Sliders prevent that from happening.
Let There Be Light
Use light pastel colors on the walls and upholstery. Lighter tones trick our eyes into thinking a room is more spacious than it actually is.
