Tiny Room? How To Maximize Your Space
We can’t all have large expansive rooms in our homes. If you live in a small home, chance are most of your rooms will be on the tiny side. It can be frustrating to decorate within the constraints of small rooms, but there are ways to maximize any small space in your home to its full potential.
When faced with decorating a small room, many would choose a minimal amount of furniture. While you don’t need to avoid buying the pieces you’d like, you should find inventive ways to use them. When choosing a couch, focus on solid colors. If possible, choose a couch color that is very similar to your wall color. Your eye will flow over both your couch and your walls, and create the illusion of a larger space. Rather than have your television in a large armoire or TV stand, hand it on the walls on a moveable arm. If you display photos around the television, it will blend in when not turned on.
Wooden pieces for your home, such as cupboards, coffee tables, and kitchen tables should be lightwood as opposed to dark. Dark wood gives off a larger feel than light.
Small bedrooms are often problematic because they don’t have enough closet space. In a small bedroom, stick to a queen sized bed as the absolute maximum. Raise your bed frame off the floor by a few inches if possible, so you can use the space under the bed for storage. Install closet organizers with shelves and drawers to avoid having a large dresser in the room. Be sure to have task and overhead lighting, as light will create the impression of a large room.
Tiny spaces create significant design challenges, but you can turn your home into a series of cozy spaces that don’t feel small by implementing any of these tips and tricks.
