3 Tips for Moving Into a Small Space
Settle down in your new home with the help of these handy ideas
If you're used to living in a large space, then we're sure that moving into a smaller home requires a big adjustment. While it may be challenging at first, there are basic steps that can help you ease into your new space minus the stress. Interior designer Diana Zamora-Ramirez shares these tips:
- Bring in a favorite piece
In this 75sqm condo in Taguig, the owner brought the tomato-red accent chair from her old house. She placed it by the window so she can admire the skyline at night. "For me, specifically, a really good chair. If you're retiring, you're going to be at home most of the time. You would want a really good chair to sit on," Diana explains.
- Make sure your space is bright and airy
You'll never go wrong with going for something maaliwalas. "As long as you have good lighting and a generally clean feeling of a room, it's always gonna feel good. You'll feel more restful," shares Diana.
- Limit the personal belongings that you would bring to your new home
Diana suggests limiting what you would bring to one or two pieces for each area, depending on how big or small your new home is.
