Decorating a small space, just like decorating a large one, simply requires ingenuity of design and a good eye for what works and what doesn’t. Some minimalists advocate that living with less creates simplicity, efficiency and a calmer existence, allowing us to focus on what’s important.
Mirrors are one of the simplest ways to create the illusion of a larger room, particularly if placed directly opposite a window. If you’re not blessed with an abundance of natural light, mirrors can help you make the most of what you do have by reflecting it around the room.
Multi-purpose / Folding furniture
Furniture that can be folded up and stowed away when not in use is essential to small house living. This makes your stay comfortable even when guests visit or friends drop by. From folding beds to folding chairs and tables, furniture has the unique ability to transform rooms into convertible ones within your home.
Clutter free space
Be mindful of leaving plenty of open space in your small house, both for ease of movement and for maintaining utility. Even if you get to a point where you have only as many things as will comfortably fit into your space, stuff has a way of accumulating.
Take advantage of vertical space
Making the most use of vertical space means both playing around with taller items and affixing your walls with things like shelving and art that add vertical depth in addition to the spaciousness you’ve worked to create on the floor. Shelving over the worktable and conduit pipes for holding wrapping and packing papers keep everything within reach.
You can go bold with color and embrace the size of your apartment. A darker shade of paint on the walls and ceiling can make the space feel like a jewel box.
