Living in big luxurious houses may be a dream come true for many of us. A fancy house with a couple of stories, a large balcony or garden, huge living rooms, and spacious bedrooms is what we often think of. However, the reality, at times, might be slightly different and even if one aspect of the house is big, the other may not be exactly how we envisioned it to be. In this case, we have to make do with what we have. Luckily, designers have come up with different hacks that will make it feel like the dream house is right here!
Fitting in everything may be difficult in a tiny space, and making it look cute would be an even bigger challenge. Here are some clever solutions to this obstacle that will make you get the most out of a smaller space as well.
Use reflective materials:
A glossy door wardrobe, white lacquered walls, reflective and shiny tiles, cabinets, etc would be ideal in such a scenario. This is owing to the fact that the high-shine and reflective materials create a maximizing effect same as that of a mirror. This makes the light bounce and creates an airer space. If not completely glossy, even mix and match wardrobes can be bought that look compact but are spacious inside.
In limited space, you would want to keep the bulky furniture to a minimum. Therefore, using a TV wall unit as a storage space to keep the extra items neatly stacked would be a good idea. The same cabinet can also be used as a shelf to keep a few decorative items instead of investing in a shelf altogether. These units can be glossy or wooden, large or small, depending on the available space.
Use strategic seating:
Opt for seating provisions that can be folded back into a smaller size in case the need is diminished. Folding sofas would be a good idea. Additionally, one can also invest in more trendy, comfy, and elegant chairs instead of sofas to save space. Another unconventional idea would be to have extra mattresses for seating in case there are guests at home.
Use bigger accessories:
Even though it seems ironic, having larger but fewer accessories or showpieces in the home would give it a much grander feel. Do not push the furniture up against the wall; creating space behind the pieces makes the room feel and look wider.
Having pieces of furniture that are standing upwards – bookshelves, cabinets, wall mountings, etc would make the room feel higher. Even wall hangings and ceiling-related furniture can be utilized well in this case.
The ideas to make the space feel bigger can be plenty. You can take your call regarding how you would like to style your home and create a spacious feel. Get appropriate furniture to aid you in this quest.
