Once you live in a tiny living space, you’ll understand how challenging it becomes to fit in everything you need and make it look good at the same time. However, coming up with intelligent ideas to solve that problem makes redesigning small spaces so much fun! Contemporary home decor ideas involving elements like hanging chairs, smart lights, and acrylic wall clocks are earning popularity in India. Likewise, there are many more interesting ideas that you can incorporate under budget.
In this article, we’ll be covering quite a few hacks to decorate your small house or studio apartment in order to get more out of a tiny space while maintaining your style.
Introduce Reflective Materials
Mirrors and reflective elements have the tendency to make your space feel larger, airier, and lighter.
If you opt for light-colored lacquered walls and glazed tiles, then the shiny surface of these materials will help in generating an airier space with a similar maximizing effect that a mirror does, by reflecting all the light they get.
Add Quirky Furniture
You can choose a few strategic furniture and decorative pieces that accommodate your small living space while achieving both the look and the purpose you are aiming for. To achieve that, you can slide a tall pedestal into the free corner of your room to prop up a large flower vase and attract the eyes of the visitors, or accentuate your sofa with a leg rest that can alternate as a table. etc.
Install Aesthetic Lightings
You can install smart lightings that can be hung from the ceiling above or fitted to the walls to save room on the floor. Aesthetic swing-arm sconces are known for clearing the clutter on the floor and bringing a new dimension to the walls, which are ideal for small living spaces.
Conceal Your Mounted TV
You have to agree that gathering all the media consoles atop a counter is nothing but a waste of good space in a small room. Rather mounting your TV on the accent wall or above a fireplace is the new solution to save floor space. But how about you conceal that wall-mounted TV as well?
Try hiding it inside of a credenza or an enigmatic artwork, and see the difference for yourself!
Swap Sofas with Club Chairs
A small room doesn’t always allow you to make space for both a spacious sofa and other seating arrangements. In that case, you can forgo the sofa and opt for a set of cushioned armchairs or a cozy settee, then angle them with respect to your gallery/accent wall, walkway, doors, and windows.
Dangle a Seating
If you want to arrange for seating without taking up a ton of floor space, then you can dangle a hanging chair from the ceiling above. Right now swing chairs are trending everywhere since they act as a lifesaver in a small room. They literally don’t take up any floor space, yet give the feel of a much more spacious room at the same time.
Incorporate a Wall Desk
If you are tired of putting up more and more furniture in your tiny room, then opt for a wall-mounted desk. It not only takes up less space but also allows you to add an aesthetic touch to your otherwise empty wall.
Utilize the Space Under the Stairs
The space under the staircase is always overlooked while designing interiors. You can utilize that space for storage by cleverly incorporating drawers, and bookshelves, or even repurposing it as an isolated cushioned seating corner.
Opt for a Suitable Rug
A rug is one such item that allows you to elevate the aesthetic feel of your living space, irrespective of the size of the room. You can choose a rug that is large enough to cover most of the floor space so that you can place the furniture on it accordingly. However, it is better to avoid using statement rugs or bold patterns whenever possible.
Incorporate Distinct Furnishings
Clearing the clutter doesn’t always mean bare designs. You can incorporate traditional or distinct craft prices like chandeliers, statement artworks, assorted frameworks, and acrylic wall clocks which are available in India to create an aesthetic environment.
Introduce Plants, Planters, & Vases
As mentioned above, you don’t always need to let go of decorative to make your space feel uncluttered and neat. You can add indoor plants, statement planters, and decorative glass or porcelain vases to offer visual interest. A complementing assortment of plants, vases and planters, bookshelves, a tea table, and rustic mirrors can easily add life to your little room beyond your imagination.
