Visualise and Think It Through
The first thing that you should do is determine what you want the space to be for, as this will help decide how you plan to renovate it. For example, say you want to turn a room into a children’s nursery. You will also need to consider if you require extra shelves and cabinets to store the toys. Not only that, the kind of storage units you need are also important – will wall shelves be sufficient or will you need floor-to-ceiling wardrobes? This will help you to determine specific and viable space-saving solutions.
Use A Unifying Colour
A great way to visually enlarge a space is by covering all the walls or the floors of different sections of the home in one colour. This will give off a sense of continuity and a visual impression that the space feels larger than it actually is. If you feel that covering all the walls with the same colour is dull and plain, an alternative that you can opt for is to incorporate decorative elements such as a cabinet, a carpet, or even a small accent piece that has the same colour as your walls or floor. We recommend using warm shades such as beige, brown, and grey to add cosiness to the room as well.
Utilise Multi-Functional Furniture
When it comes to compact spaces, you need to think out-of-the-box to ensure that a room remains functional without being cluttered. This is where multi-functional furniture pieces come into the picture. Rather than a bulky shelving unit, why not go for built-in shelves that double as a hidden door that leads into another section of the home? Other great options to consider are foldable countertops, in-wall beds, etc. Applying these fixtures to your home frees up additional space, while also preventing clutter from accumulating.
