How to make the most of small spaces

Small interior or architecture can become a jewelled box environment – luxury isn’t limited by space but by design. You can create your ultimate dream designs and architecture by carefully selecting home furnishings and utilizing creative storage solutions! While we love an open floor plan, not all of us have the privilege of living in sprawling villas and penthouses. Space is at a premium, and most of us find ourselves in constrained urban pockets with limited options. However, lack of space doesn’t mean you have to forgo the dream of having beautiful and comfortable architecture. Here are some ways to jazz up your interiors and make it a cosy haven:

  • Color
    Pick a restrained colour palette to keep the visual flow of the interior space intact as it creates the illusion of a larger space. White surfaces perform best because they reflect light. Therefore, employing white, beige, and other lighter hues can enhance the appearance of the interiors, rendering it larger and more inviting. Moreover, a white colour palette serves as a blank canvas on which you can showcase artwork. 

  • Fabrics
    Fabrics like curtains and rugs are essential in accentuating a space’s scale. For instance, the higher you place your curtain trails, the larger the opening or window will appear. Also, a large rug in a small space instantly makes the interiors appear roomier and adds texture. In addition, soft furnishings can substitute heavy partitions to divide a space.

  • Lighting
    Optimizing natural light can drastically brighten up small interior spaces. Light fixtures can draw attention to other design elements, enhance the space if placed correctly, and even modify the ambience. Opting for light fixtures that can do both tasks, like reading and creating pools of light to alter the ambience, can reduce the number of fixtures. Also, one can lean towards ceiling-suspended light fixtures that can reduce floor space constraints.

  • Furniture
    Furnish your interiors both vertically and horizontally. When adding some furniture, consider multifunctional furniture that can double as a storage unit. As much as possible, take furniture off the floor with floating shelves or hooks, making the best use of your vertical space and allowing an easier manoeuvre around the space. Arrange the furniture to float away from the walls; this permits some breathing space, lets light flow and distracts the eye from the edges of the space.
