With emerging populations comes the rise in buildings with small interior spaces. Whether an apartment or a one-floor house, today, most interiors have small areas, but with present-day interior solutions you can benefit from all the available space. Here are tips on how to achieve this.
- Light Colors
This one is obvious. We were all taught in school about the color effect of anything. Accordingly, we apply it in interiors. Light colors broaden the area. It also adds a sense of serenity to your home. Add it to the main furniture pieces, sofas and chairs or even rugs and carpets. Go White, grey, pastels and neutrals.
- Calm Patterns
The same goes for the patterns: if you want a subtle interior, don’t go extreme with the wall and fabric patterns. Try to have a maximum of two coordinating patterns, with a maximum of two colors to add drama –yet keeping the room fresh and faint. Hint: this year’s trend is floral patterns.
With Scandinavian designs breaking into modern interior this won’t be a concern. Go for straight, clean lines in your furniture. Arcs, loops and bends in furniture are pleasant, but better to avoid if you need to acquire a spacious area. Also, don’t pile on the sofa cushions and home accessories. Remember: straight, clean lines.
This one is sneaky. Some interiors have slender walls. If you have a lot to store it would be tricky and bulky to hang a boxed wall unit. Alternately, use shelves. Try simple shelves, mounted on the wall atop each other according to your need. Avoid cluttering the stored items. It can also be in geometric arrangement to add scenery. Match the shelf color to your room’s color scheme.
- Multipurpose furniture
This can be very useful. You don’t have to possess all the furniture details separately. Present-day furniture design is innovatory. A Sofa bed, a table stool, a folding wall desk or a stacked set of coffee tables. Use your imagination.
