While smaller homes and condos have a cozy appeal, some are worried that a small space might not be practical enough for them. Well, we’re here to share some big ideas for the small space to make the most out of it and give it a larger-than-life persona.
If you take a look at everything you have in your living space, you might notice a lot of items you don’t need or want anymore. Downsizing is the first step. Freeing up a considerable amount of space will give you the room to bring things to life.
If you live in an area that lacks a considerable amount of natural light, this is where some new steps can really give the illusion of more space. Items such as floor lamps or higher-wattage bulbs can make your space seem larger than they actually are.
Uniformity & Flooring
While you may feel tempted to create variety in your living space, too much can make you feel penned in. Uniformity, particularly in the flooring of a smaller living space, can create an effective optical illusion that gives off the impression of more room. This also applies to the walls of your living area; if you opt to utilize one single color, this and the lighting can really bring out the spaciousness of your home.
While furniture is necessary for any living space, too much is never a good thing. You can make do with the essentials, such as a couch and a bed and live in luxury. It all comes down to where in your room you place items such as these. Having items against the wall and not out in the open will create the illusion of more space.
