4 Must-Do Space-Saving Tricks for Tiny Spaces
Make the most of a limited floor area with these helpful ideas
How can you live comfortably in a studio unit? To be able to maximize the available space, homeowners are becoming more creative when it comes to furnishing their spaces. Aside from opting for multipurpose furniture, adding mirrors, and working with an ideal color scheme, they are also open to experimenting and turning nooks into efficient areas.
If you've just moved into a new unit or apartment, let this list of ideas serve as your starter guide:
Be consistent with color
A consistent color scheme creates a pulled-together look for your home. Consider using accents in shades of brown, cream, or other deep neutrals to create a balanced look.
Pick an overall style
Given the tiny space, it's best to create a cohesive look. If you want to channel different styles in the different areas, make sure that these do no clash. Maintain a unifying element—it can be a pattern, a piece, or a print.
Be cautious with furniture
If your budget permits, opt for custom-made pieces that can fit perfectly in the available space. Consider having foldaway tables, storage ottomans, and wall-mounted desks and shelves. Since these do not take up floor space, you can still squeeze in extra pieces or storage bins.
Work on your walls and decorate vertically
Anchor different areas with eye-catching visuals like wall graphics in the dining area or mosaic tiles in the kitchen. These elements help divert attention from the small space.
