People choose the size of their homes based on many reasons. But for many, the key influencer would be the size of their pocket, number of occupants or maintenance. Getting yourself or your family a small house does not mean you have to live with the feeling of a rat hole. There are plenty ideas that are available to make your life much more pleasant, and at the same time give you as much satisfaction as owning any large space house. It is all about your interior designing. You could still keep your space cozy, welcoming and stylish and practical at the same time. Breaking a few rules here and there wouldn’t hurt either. Give some of the ideas below a thought and a chance and see if it makes a soothing difference to your experience of small space living.
Large furniture vs. small
We always go with the thought that small spaces need to have small pieces of furniture. And we settle for a less than desired couch or a dinning table. However, a few carefully selected pieces of furniture could give you that extra touch of elegance, yet, practical and most of all take away the claustrophobic feelings. There are drop leaf tables that could double up as dinning, work station and also look pretty at the same time. Also give some consideration to where you keep your furniture. In a living room it is best if you don’t align your main seating along the wall but have it at the center of the room and use a rug to demarcate the space. A little thought could take you a long way.
Curtains and other space separation ideas
Heavy dark hued curtaining sounds gloomy and limiting the space you already have. Nevertheless, tastefully selected floor to ceiling curtaining could distract the eyes from the small space. Using soft sheer curtaining is also seen as an option to separating space. This takes away solid separations that could look chunky and cluttery, instead, adding some class and softness to the area. Also consider replacing the plastic shower curtain with a semi or frameless shower screens installation.
There are reputed companies who provide shower glass installation at affordable pricing along with safety guaranteed.
Shelves as storage spaces
Shelves could not only give you sensible use of space but could also give your home some style. You need to only give some thought to the type of shelving that would suit your needs and space. If being creative on your own is difficult or hiring an interior designer is expensive, browse the internet and you will find plenty of shelving ideas for just about any room in your house.
