5 Things You Need to Know About Small Spaces Today
Never run out of ideas when it comes to prettifying your home
When you're used to living in big houses, it can be difficult to adjust to small space living. From going up and down to get to another room, it's now reduced to three to five steps just to get to the kitchen from your bedroom.
Don't let this get you down! Small homes hold lots of possibilities for homeowners. Embrace the wonders of living in a compact space with a few easy and practical tips! Here are ideas that you can do today:
Create a smoking area
Now that you've separated the different areas of the home, what's next? If you smoke or if you have frients who do, it's best to have a special smoking area. If you want to keep your living area a non-smoking zone, you can leave an ashtray in the balcony that they can use.
Leave it raw
Sometimes unfinished concrete can make a huge impact in a small space! The raw concrete look at home can work if you feel like adding an eclectic and unique vibe to your space.
In a limited space, built-in furniture can save you precious inches! Plus, with built-in pieces, you can choose the color and finishes that you want—depending on the style and vibe that you'd love to achieve.
Get affordable seats
If you entertain a lot, it’s wise to buy stackable chairs for extra seating. Cheap monoblocks in different shades can be cute additions to your party. You can also invest in foldable stools, too!
Opt for a lower night stand
Night tables should be as low as or lower than the height of your mattress for easy access to your eyeglasses or books. Measure the height of your bed and bring the measurements with you when scouting for a new side table.
