A vast number of populations live in small homes, tiny rooms, or just small spaces. Some people who opt for a tiny apartment do so because it is all that they have the money for, at the moment, and they are thankful for it. Some others opt for small apartments or homes because they no longer want to take care of a larger area and are looking to minimize their maintenance costs and the stress that comes along with maintaining a large home. Still, there are others who opt for a small home, just because they can and not because of the budget; they believe small is graceful, comfortable and highly pragmatic.
Regardless of the reason for opting for a small space, you will undeniably have to make a number of accommodations while furnishing your home, making organised arrangements and adjusting to a particular lifestyle, so that everything appears fit and not congested.
Here are some interesting tips that may help in enlarging your small space.
· Cosy and intimate spaces become even snugger when soft upholstered pieces are placed in strategic locations around the room in dark and warm tones. These can be arranged in a room with dramatic lighting and a tiny corner can emerge as a fantastic, exclusive space.
· Engage colour combinations, smart furniture arrangement and clever use of lighting to ensure that your space does not appear overcrowded. Moreover, by employing subtle decorating changes there will be no need to move any walls, just to make your space look and feel better.
· Get rid of unnecessary clutter. Too much stuff can crowd any area and having lots of items in a tiny space can really snuff out the joy in the room. Arrange things neatly and place certain items out of sight, in order to bring in a full view of the space that you have, out in the open.
· Open up blocked spaces. Sometimes certain pieces of furniture can block the view of a room and cause it to appear cramped. Move out furniture present in walkways and you will notice substantial space in those areas. Purchase short pieces of furniture such as open chairs, low tables, ottomans, armless seats or benches and you will instantly witness that your small room suddenly appears open and airy. If you have large or imposing pieces of furniture, place them along the wall rather than in the middle of an open space. It is a good point to note that a room appears large when there is a significant amount of floor space to be seen.
· Select soft tints or light tinges. Cool and light nuances help in making a space appear fresh and ventilated. On the other hand, warm and dark colours create cosy and intimate environment in anyroom. For an optimal effect, choose soft shades of blues and greens and you will notice the environment liven up.
· Put up mirrored surfaces. Any room looks large if it has a mirrored reflective wall. Large framed mirrors on walls or oversized framed mirrors placed against a wall provide an automatic room-elaborating effect, with added panache. To bring about a more open spaciousness and buoyancy to the room, play along with the space and the light reflected on the mirror.
