If you are living in a small space, it’s easy to feel like you don’t have enough space for you to enjoy your home. This shouldn’t be the case – getting creative with the design aspect of your home can play a huge difference. Even if you aren’t ready to remodel or renovate your home, here are some tips and tricks you can use to feel like your space is larger than it is.
The living room is often times where people spend the most time in their home. Filling your living room with furniture that is not only comfortable but also serves more of a functional purpose can help create more room to breathe in your home. Buying furniture that doubles as storage space is a great way to make one piece into a multipurpose piece.
If you try different ways to set up your furniture, you can make sure you are using every inch of space you have. You will also find out what works and what doesn’t. Don’t be afraid to try different placements of couches, TV stands, coffee tables, etc to make sure that you are giving yourself the most accessible space with the space you are using.
If you put something that catches the away as decor – a gallery wall, a big piece of artwork, or something that will draw your guests’ eyes away from the space. By doing this you are diverting the attention of the small space and giving them something else to focus on. This will also make your space seem larger and more interesting.
When you have a small space, it’s tempting to push everything up against the wall. This makes the room have an open space in the middle but by putting, for example, a chair in the middle of the room, off the wall, you are opening the space up for conversation.
When you have clutter laying around taking up space, this is the biggest problem that can make a smaller living space seem even smaller. Keeping to the basics and being a minimalist will help your space look and feel larger.
