When you’re living in everyone’s dream location like Hawaii, it’s hard to imagine that you’d have anything to complain about. However, even the most beautiful places can’t stop you from pulling your hair out when you’re living in a confined space like a small house or apartment. It’s hard stuffing a lifetime of belongings into a tiny space. It can be frustrating as you step inside your home and you can’t see where your clutter starts or where it ends.
It can be difficult furnishing a tiny home because adding extra things in it can make it seem even smaller. However, the small space you are working with does not have to be your enemy anymore. There are plenty of ways to furnish your home and find places to store your belongings especially when you seek help from our store. It doesn’t matter how small your home is if you take a step back and allow yourself to see all the potential you have at your fingertips. Once you do that, it makes it so much easier to begin showcasing all of your styles in your home. With our advice, you can make your home look and feel as amazing as you want it to be.
If you are attempting to figure out how you can add one piece of furniture over another in your small home, you might be on the verge of giving up. However, instead of giving up and choosing one piece over the other, you might want to reconsider your options because you have more at your disposal than you think.
You can always choose multi-purpose furniture because it can transform into another piece of furniture while conserving space. Rather than sacrificing a bed over a couch due to lack of space, you can have the best of both worlds. For example, if you plan on having guests over at your home at one point in the future then buying a Sleeper Sofa will do wonders for you. You not only have a place to sleep for yourself or an extra place for a guest to sleep on when visiting, but you can easily turn it into a couch when the bed is not needed.
Dual-purpose furniture isn’t just made for couches and beds either. You can always choose to purchase cabinets that are multifunctional, tables with storage underneath it, tv stands with storage around it and so on. By adding multi-purpose furniture to your home, it makes it so much easier to work around a small space by storing belongings out of view.
When you start searching for the right size and type of furniture for your home, you will have to consider whether you will be choosing curved or box-shaped type furniture. When you are dealing with a home that has limited space, it is always best to go with furniture that has curves to it. By adding round furniture to your home, it makes it more visually appealing and it can open up the room better than any rectangular furniture could offer. There are also many types of furniture that you can add to help you with the flow of your home such as a round table, round mirrors, chairs with curves and more.
You’d be surprised to find that adding layers to your home can make it look much more spacious than it is. By layering, you are adding more depth to your home just by adding pieces such as throw rugs, throw pillows, shadow boxes, pieces with lots of textures and patterns and so on. Adding layers can also help with distinguishing where the living room starts, and the bedroom ends so your home does not look all jumbled. For example, placing a rug that is larger than the couch will help make your guests see that they are entering the living room area.
Use the walls
When you are living in a small space, you must use everything to your advantage and that means the walls will be your new best friend. If you want to make space or even, make your home look larger than using your walls will help you tremendously. The first thing you can add to your walls are curtains that are in the same color as the walls or in a slightly lighter shade of the walls that are hung high. Another way to use walls to your advantage is by adding floating shelves since it opens up your apartment by making more room while adding additional storage.
Not only can you add shelves on the wall to help with storage, but you can also add mirrors with shelves on it to add something different to your walls. Adding mirrors with shelves can allow you to place a small lamp, sunglasses or other items so you don’t have to take up any room on the floor. If you are still interested in adding furniture, then you might want to opt for furniture with legs since it can make it seem as if the furniture is taking up less space than one that sits directly on the floor. Lastly, your walls are not just for adding additional storage to your home. You can still pick up some pieces of various forms of art such as paintings and photographs and so on to continue showing off your style.
Scaling down might be the easiest and most difficult solution when furnishing a home with a limited amount of space. If you decide to scale down then you have plenty of options to choose from like a small couch, shelves, and more. You can even add an extendable table just in case for the days when you have guests over.
