5 Design Tips to Make Small Living Feel Big


Small homes are cozy and take less time to clean, but they have their disadvantages. People with small living quarters are often stuck on how to make the most out of their space. The good news is that there are lots of ways to make a small space feel bigger. Here are some simple tips to get you started!

Built-in Storage 

Built-in wall storage is a great solution to hide clutter in plain sight. Lots of companies, such as IKEA, offer built-in storage solutions that you can customize to any room in your house. If you don’t have a big closet, design your own storage system that fits perfectly into the space you do have, with all the compartments you need. Similarly, if you’re working with a tiny kitchen, invest in a shelving unit that can house your dishes and dry goods.

Loft Kids’ Beds

If kids’ bedrooms are feeling cramped, using a loft bed instantly creates much more space. Now you have room under the bed to fit a desk, a toy box or even a small sofa.  

Use Mirrors as Decor 

Mirrors can be used to give the illusion of more space. Hang large ones in your kitchen and living room to add depth and dimension. Mirrors also reflect light, which you always want more of in small spaces.

Paint in Light Colors 

A rule of thumb for small homes is to always use light colors on the walls. This will make the space feel brighter and more spacious. Dark colors envelope a room and will only make it feel more cramped. Go the extra mile and even paint your floors a light color to maximize on that feeling of openness. 

Decorate with Vertical Stripes
Stripes are a handy design tip for those with minimal square footage. Paint vertical stripes on your walls to draw the eye upward. Bring area rugs with vertical stripes into your living room to make the space feel larger. 

Use Multipurpose Furniture

When you have a small home, you may feel like you need to resist bringing in new furniture so that things don’t get crowded. Then again, you should not have to forgo certain items just because you’re working with a small space. Consider furniture that serves more than one purpose, such as an ottoman with hidden storage, beds with built-in drawers, Murphy beds and more. There are lots of furniture companies that specifically serve customers with tiny spaces, so there is no longer a reason to skip on the things you need.
