How to get the most out of a small space
Getting the most out of a small room in your home can be challenging, so we have come up with a few tips to help you maximise your space and bring new life to your home.
Be creative with storage
If you have a small room, clutter is your number one enemy. It’s important to find ways to keep the mess at a minimum. Be creative with your storage ideas, there are plenty of options available to those who want to keep their possessions hidden to create more space and give the impression that a room is much larger than it actually is.
Beds with drawers or innovative use of cupboard space in the kitchen and bathroom are two simple solutions for creating space. Top tip: opt for sliding wardrobe doors in the bedroom as they don’t require as much space in front of them!
Make use of mirrors
Mirrors are a perfect way of getting the most out of every inch of your bedroom or bathroom. Not only do they give you the optical illusion that the room is much bigger than it is, but they also are a great accessory. Place your mirror opposite a window or behind a source of light to increase the reach of light in your room, this can be a natural source of light or artificial. The more light in the room the better.
Having too much furniture can overwhelm a small room and make it feel cluttered. It’s easy for home offices especially to feel unorganised. Having small furniture won’t make much of an impact to your study, so opt for a few larger pieces to give your room some main focal points without the room feeling too busy. Keep it simple.
Finally, be bright! Using dark colours in a small space can make the room feel even smaller. Choose bright, light colours on the walls, floor, and ceiling to make your room seem a lot more spacious and highlight the natural light. If you are reading this and you love darker colours in your home, don’t worry, you can easily add these in your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom with accessories and décor!
