If you like the idea of living in a tiny house or micro-apartment, then you know it means taking advantage of every inch of space when it comes to interior designing. When a small a space is all you got, dual-purpose furniture and light colors are the tools you need to make your space feel larger and less cramped as soon as you move in.
If you’re thinking of living small there are a few simple tips to help you maximize your limited space. With a home that’s both welcoming and functional, you can still live large.
Be Honest About Your Needs
Only people who live in a tiny house truly know how to decorate a tiny house. You need to be brutally honest about what you need and love. Before going small, eliminate items from a tiny space that you don’t absolutely love. This will help you fill your home with only the items you genuinely care about.
It may seem counterintuitive, but by including one large piece of furniture in a tiny space you can make the room appear larger and luxurious. Choosing furniture that offers multiple functions is essential for tiny spaces. Select items like a sleeper sofa, storage cubes that double as seating, or a sideboard with shelves and drawers.
Use the Walls
Use tall, tiered pieces and floor-to-ceiling shelving units. You can mount baskets on the wall for bathroom and bedroom storage, and if you have a closet, add hooks to store hats, scarves, and other items.
Maximize storage potential underneath other pieces of furniture, such as under beds, tables, and bureaus with legs. Stock up on collapsible baskets and bins that are easy to store when not in use.
Light and Bright
If you’re going to live in a small space that has low ceilings and minimal windows with little natural light getting in, go lighter when it comes to wall colour, floor design, and furniture. Add lots of lighting fixtures to brighten up the space. Bright spaces tend to provide a cheerful, happy setting, regardless of size.
