How do you take small spaces and morph it into a home for extended family to stay?
Here are some some clever and creative tips to make your home feel a lot more spacious and enjoyable to live in.
Kitchen splashback as focal point
Use a kitchen splashback which draws the eye through any opened planned living. Tiles can give a classic touch and echo calm and inviting vibe to the kitchen.
Tip: Mosaic tiles are great for something fun. Because they’re small you can afford to be bold.
Bring light into your space
Use windows to capture striking outdoor vista, bathing rooms in light and creating a sense of space. Double glazing windows are great as they provide insulation and next to white walls they help bounce light across the room.
Select furniture wisely for your interiors
Choose fine lined furniture to avoid visual bulk in a limited space. For a small home, it’s important to mark out the size of furniture on a floorplan first to make sure you don’t end up with items that are too big.
Tip: Mid century modern pieces are ideal in settings where you want to maintain a sense of lightness because of their unfussy designs.
Timber creates natural warmth for interiors
Tactile touch – Using wood in spaces creates natural warmth, adds texture and pattern and echoes the local landscape.
Play with patterns in your space
Tune playful combination of patterns in decorative items that stand out in simply dressed rooms. Mix scales and sizes of similar patterns, such as spots and polka dots, to add a fun element.
Clean and simple interiors
In the bathroom having black heightened timber creates clean cohesive aesthetic. Framing cabinets with wood gives them a floating effect so the vanity doesn’t feel to big in the space.
Tip: A contrasting black floor and full mirror make a small bathroom feel larger.
Home decoration for small spaces
Layers of contrasting colour and patterns combine throughout bedlinen, throws and rugs to bring comfort and beautiful detail into bedrooms. The feeling is bright, joyful and casual.
Colour pops for interiors
Introduce bolts of paints that lifts the spirits while being very easy to live with. Bright colours can add to a simple palette of white, black and timber, which prevents the small home feeling, cluttered.
Tip: In an office space create an eye-catching feature with a hit of colour.
