How to Make the Most Out of a Small Living Space!

If you’ve not got the biggest space to enjoy in your home, you needn’t worry – small spaces don’t have to make you feel anxious! You don’t have to get rid of all your belongings just to fit everything into a small space. Smaller living spaces have a number of perks, like better use of electricity, smaller bills, and a cosy and homely environment. There are a few ways you can make the most out of a small space while still enjoying all of your belongings. You can even make your small space look even larger than it actually is! It all comes down to being smart about the way you use this newfound small space. And we’ll show you how.

Choosing the right colour paint

Sometimes dark and bold colours are the trendy way to paint your space. Over the last few years there have been trends in painting dark chocolate areas in living areas, especially when teamed up with industrial colours and accents. However this isn’t going to look good in a small space! Light and bright colour...

Make use of mirrors

Mirrors are a great way to make any small area seem larger than it really is. If you have a large window in one room, consider hanging a large mirror either opposite or adjacent to it. You’ll not only be able to brighten the room by reflecting light into the room from the window, but you’ll also be able to make it seem larger thanks to the reflection of the outdoors in your mirror. If you’re not really sure what art pieces to hang, perhaps instead consider hanging some mirrors.

Put your functions first

If you’re building a home, you should definitely consider what you’ll be using each space for, and focus on these areas first. If you like to have guests over and enjoy cooking, you may want to consider allowing extra floor space for the kitchen and dining areas. You may then be happy to reduce the bedroom space a little so as to make that extra room in the kitchen. Consider what you really need in your home and focus on these areas first. The last ...

Think vertically

If you have a small room, then there’s no reason why you can’t consider using wall space and vertical areas. Think about installing bookshelves on the walls instead of having a bookcase in the room. You can even hang items on the walls, such as bikes and guitars. Racks can easily be installed for long items such as these, and not only do they look good hanging on the wall but you’ll also be making room for other things! You’ll also be drawing the eye upwards to make the room appear larger than it truly is.

Buy furniture with storage space

If possible, each and every piece of furniture you choose to fill your space should have storage compartments. If you have items, you definitely need places for them to go. The easiest way to keep all of your things is to store them, and what better way to do so than to store them in plain sight? If you have a coffee table, make sure it has storage space in it, such as drawers or a hidden compartment. This way, you ca...
