6 Ways to Maximize a Small Space
For some homeowners, owning a large luxurious home with plenty of rooms is like a dream come true. It opens up a world full of opportunities to make the house a tad more appealing when you have enough space at your disposal. However, as much as pretty much all of us would want to own the largest penthouse available, not all homeowners are able to do so. This means that the rest have a much smaller space than they’d maybe hoped for. A smaller space that brings with it limited privacy and one that’s a tad harder to declutter and decorate. But the good news is, all these problems can be stylishly solved with ease. In this article, we are going to explore some small space designs that you can use regardless of whether you live in a cramped space or just want to get a little bit more out of your tiny condo.
1. Create illusions that will trick the eye
This sounds pretty crazy at first glance. But think about it. What if you could create an impression of expansiveness by simply exploiting the decorative sleight of hand? Say by using see-through furnishings, floor to ceiling curtains or simply placing mirrors strategically. Wouldn't it be great?
2. Use bigger but fewer furnishings
Outfitting a small space with fewer large-scale pieces though seemingly counterintuitive is far more effective when trying to maximize small space than going for a room full of pint-size furniture. What's more, it helps make the room feel grander as well.
3. Customize your storage space
Having a storage space is quite crucial if you’re living in a small cramped up place. After all, the last thing you want to do is cramp it even more with loads of clutter. Therefore, it is essential to have bespoke storage spaces that will help declutter all the unnecessary clutter lying around.
4. Think vertically
Try as much as possible to make use of the underutilized spaces between the tops of furniture and the ceiling so as to save on space.
5. Create Zones
Think about the activities you like engaging in in a given space and then set up separate zones for those activities. You can do this by either making use of room dividers, curtains or just simply smartly placed tables and chairs to demarcate the different activity points. Say where you sleep or eat.
6. Go for multipurpose pieces
If you can find pieces that will serve multiple purposes, then, by all means, go for them. Not only will they save you some extra cash, they will also save you some well-deserved space as well. For instance, it will save you much more space if you go for a table that can double up as a table, desk and dining table as opposed to having to get three different tables.
