We all have that small unembellished space in our houses. Whether it’s in the bedroom, living room, dining hall or bathroom it still counts as one. We know that some people would rather leave these spaces as they are but one thing you will always notice, is the awkwardness that the space brings to the overall look of the house. It always feels like something is missing. Today we are going to give you some amazing design tips for the small spaces in your house.
There’s no denying the striking effect wallpapers have on the look of your house. They bring color, pattern, texture and radiance to your home and that makes them an ideal design idea for small spaces. They breathe life into that forgotten space no one cares about. We would advise going for a light background wallpaper as a way of creating the illusion of space. You should also note that vertical patterns give an appearance of a higher ceiling as compared to horizontal patterns hence also a good option if you are looking to create that space illusion. For those with small spaces in the bedroom, floral and damask patterns are some of the best wallpaper ideas for the room.
Lay Down a Rug
A rug can be a great way to set apart the small space in your house from the rest of the area. Since our space is small, we will opt for a small rug. Rugs come in different colors, sizes, patterns and textures. There are natural rugs, dhurries, kilims, tufted, overdyed, mixed construction among others. If the space has a lot of color then it would be best to go for a neutral rug, to bring everything together and create balance. If however the space lacks color then you should try a patterned rug.
Hang Some Artwork
A beautiful artwork helps define a small space. The best thing about this design idea is perhaps the fact that you can do it yourself. All that’s needed is a little bit of creativity. There are also tons of step by step wall art ideas you can follow online to design a perfect artwork for your small space. To make the artwork more appealing, try using bright and punchy colors. Mix together colors such as blue, red, yellow, green, pink and white into something artistic.
Flowers and Pottery
Flowers are known to bring the outside beauty into your house. Aside from adding color, they are also known to purify the air while bringing that sweet fragrance of nature into your home. That is why we highly recommend placing some colorful flowers in the small spaces in your house. They will help brighten up the space and can complement your artwork or wallpaper. You can also try to be creative and innovative with the way you display your flowers. For example, you could place them inside vintage tins, tea cups, long vases, jam jars or even shells.
Displaying pottery can also help spruce up the appearance of the small spaces in your house. You can choose to display one to three pots or even go wild with a set of them. Arrangement is vital when displaying pots. Some important factors to consider while arranging pots include shapes, colors and height. Try and make it as artistic as possible. The best thing about pots is you can also place flowers inside.
Add Some Furniture
Now you would probably think adding furniture to small spaces may clutter your room but that is not so. As a matter of fact, they can help you save space by acting as storage places for some of your items. When buying furniture for small spaces, you should think small. You can for example, buy a vertical shelf to display some of your pots and flowers or get a corner desk. You can even opt to go for a rolling cart to place your books and bar supplies. Try not to put too much furniture in one place as we do not want to clutter the space. One or two can be enough to give the space a great appearance. Other amazing pieces of furniture worth mentioning include nightstands, storage benches, C-stand tables and Drop-leaf tables.
Small spaces should not be ignored. They are part of your house and therefore should be decorated with the same enthusiasm used in the other places. The mentioned design ideas are some of the best out there and are certain to make those small spaces noticeable and well integrated with the overall room.
