If you need to decorate a small house, it doesn’t need to be frustrating. Moreover, it shouldn’t hold you back from creating the home of your dreams.
With today’s organizational products and storage solutions, there’s always a way to maximize the capacity of any room. If this speaks to you, continue reading to get some great tips on how to decorate a small house.
Decorate a Small House • 6 Different Ways
➊ Let the Lights Shine Throughout Your Home
Large windows allow more light to shine in, automatically making any space feel bigger. Contemporary floor lamps, decorative wall lights, and ceiling lighting fixtures add style and comfort to home interiors, making rooms look more spacious, modern and attractive.
Hide a smaller lamp in a bookcase. It will add dimension to your lighting plan without overtaking a surface like a credenza or a side table.
➋ Paint the Walls in Airy White
A recent trend with some tiny St Albert homes for sale is to paint the walls white. White reflects the light and makes the walls recede, so a small space seems larger.
Interestingly, whites have undertones of blue, pink, or even green. However, we’re suggesting just white in its purest form, without any color in which it’s not stark or cold, just light and airy.
➌ Amplify Your Space with Mirrors
There is no better friend to a small space than a well-placed mirror. Expanding walls, amplifying light, mirrors are great ways to solve most any design dilemma.
For instance, use a large floor length mirror behind a piece of furniture in tight spaces. Or, place a mirror behind a light source. For a more decorative approach, use large, framed mirrors. All-in-all, using mirrors is one of the best and easiest ways to make a small space look bigger.
➍ Consider Streamlined Furniture
Creating the illusion of more space is all about creating a sense of openness and movement. In other words, furniture that allows light and air to flow not just over but also under and around it makes it appear to float in space. Again, think mid-century modern pieces, which are both low and leggy.
➎ Organize to Avoid Clutter
Wall-hung organizers and shelves are your new best friends. If you own something and it exists in three-dimensional space, then, store or hang it on the wall somehow.
Don’t forget to look for storage space above other things. For instance, try hanging shelves or cabinets above dressers and desks, and pot rails above sinks or countertops.
➏ Employ Multi-Use Furniture
A daybed works wonders in a small space. It can function as both sofa and bed and adds increased flexibility and functionality to a studio apartment, guest room, or living room.
There is also the option of a daybed with a trundle so you don’t have to take apart your sofa each night. Simply pull out the trundle and snuggle in for a good night’s sleep.
