Many people experience challenges in their attempts to design small spaces, yet
this should be easy and hassle free even when you are on budget. Small
rooms and spaces have their pros and cons, in which case you need skill
and creativity to make them look stylish.
The main advantage with small spaces is that you have a wider range of locations to choose,
compared to larger spaces. This ensures that you are always considerate
when shopping, in an effort to avert clutter accumulation within the
tiny space. Here are some tips that will help you design your small
space easily. It would be advisable to consult an expert who will make
the furnishing and overall decorating process simpler and well
Planning and designing your small space
The main challenge that you can expect as you plan and design small spaces
is organisation. If you have a small home or space, then you can expect
closets and other storage facilities to be small, which makes storage
planning a big challenge. So how do you counter this challenge?
The first step is to get rid of items that you do not need, for instance,
old clothing, and shoes. The other option is to make good use of the
in-built storage space that is immediately available. On the other hand,
you can also look out for other spaces such as the landings, halls and
the stairway and determine how best you can use those areas, while being
economical on design.
Using colour to enhance décor
In an attempt to design small spaces, many people paint them in bright
colours to make them look larger. Actually, this is one of the best and
most affordable ways to make a small space look larger, offering a great
dose of style, which draws the eye’s attention away from the small
size. In addition to bright and appropriate colours, you also need to
make other wise choices, for instance, ensuring the space is well lit.
In fact, good lighting helps reflect light back and this gives the
illusion of a large space, even when the space is apparently very small.
If lighting is not an option, you can try using mirrors, which are very
good at offering large space illusion in tiny spaces.
As you design small spaces, consider using dual or multipurpose furniture,
especially beds. The other design idea is using visual impact
furniture, for instance, a striped fabric sofa, makes a great choice.
This kind of a sofa gives the illusion of space where it is limited, and
at the same time, you can choose one that is multipurpose, useful as a
sofa, bed, and storage facility too. If you are designing a small office
space, you must be very careful with the sofa choice, in which you may
consider consulting an expert to help in the selection process.
