A tiny space doesn’t mean you have to be crowded. Take a look at these 10 Home Decor Tips and create a more open living space for your family and friends.
Make sure you have enough natural lighting
Include large windows all around your living room, natural lighting instantly opens up any space and provides a modern look at the same time.
Use raised sofas and armchairs
Opt for sofas and armchairs that are raised on legs, which creates a sense of light and space.
Go for wall-to-wall bookcases
Unlike the old rule that small furniture is the only way to go in a small house, using a wall-to-wall bookcase in your home decor will expand the way your high ceiling looks and at the same time provide a great amount of storage.
Use neutral colors
Use bright and neutral colors like white, grey and beige, they give the illusion of a bigger and more organized space. There’s no wonder why the minimalist design has become a huge trend.
Mirrors are a key element to any home decor in our humble opinion, but they sure are much more essential in a small house. The reflection will expand your space visually.
Paint your ceiling with a bright color
Using a bright color for your ceiling will drive they eye upward, creating the illusion of a higher ceiling. Green is a huge design trend this season, why not?
A smaller house doesn’t mean it can’t have a little drama. Artwork can make any room feel more luxurious and bigger in the process. If you have space for artwork, you sure must have space for everything right?
Space It Out
Shoving furniture against the wall doesn’t guarantee a larger room. Try angling your bed or our favorite trick of floating the sofa in the living room with a skinny console behind it. Breathing room around your furniture lends the appearance of more space.
Fold It Up
Use a Statment Piece
It’s easy to assume that you should decorate a small space with small furniture, right? But one prominent furniture piece such as a statement armchair will keep the space uncluttered and open.
