How to Make the Most out of Small Spaces
Lack of space is something a lot of us struggle with. If you are looking to create more space in your studio apartment or in the box room in your house, then this blog runs through a few tips on how to do so without breaking the bank.
Every space, no matter how big or small can look fantastic and serve a purpose.
Choosing the right colour
The use of pale shades create the illusion of more space. White also creates a more spacious look, but if you think white will too 'cold' or lacks 'character' then we recommend pale warm neutrals. They help create a cosy mood but also still feel light.
In small spaces it helps to pair your furniture with your walls. Doing this will give the impression of an open looking space.
Another great tip is making sure every inch of the space is utilised. When planning, try to see if there are any opportunities to build in storage. The more floor space you can create, the better. Cluttering a space often results in smaller spaces not being utilised to their full potential.
Use of light
The easiest way to make a space feel bigger is to use light. Make sure the space is letting in as much light as possible to really open it up.
A great way of making a tight space feel wider is horizontal banding. This exaggerates the width of a space and will trick your eyes into thinking the space is larger than it is.
