Consider multipurpose pieces

In any small home, extra spaces are important. Avoid using bulky pieces as these take too much space. Foldaway tables are ideal for the work area or dining area as you can easily store it in one corner when not in use. You may even use it as prepping table in the kitchen.

Choose the right curtains

Long curtains give an illusion of a taller, bigger space. Given the unbearable heat these past few days, you may want to have sheer white curtains for your living area.

Opt for a divider / shelf

Aside from using rugs to separate areas at home, you may also have a divider that can serve as shelf, too. Put your books, collections, and other decor pieces on display.

To turn the shelf/divider into instant storage spot, place baskets on the lowermost part. You can keep magazines and other home items here.

Choose white hues

White walls give your space an open feel as well as the freedom to add in colorful pieces to serve as accents. You may add colorful pillows, a unique chandelier or other fun accessories. Having white walls makes it easier for you to change the paint of your space over time.
