Home Decor ideas for smaller sized homes

Realty firms these days are emphasizing more on budget homes or cheap flats. These upcoming residential projects are for people with a tight budget, who are also ready to compromise on the size of the house. With the limitation on size in these budget flats / homes, purchasing the right home decor becomes a little tricky. Just because you have a small house doesn’t mean you have to live with basic home decor & furnishing. Modern & trendy home decor stuff used in a right way will make your space look bigger. Try the below mentioned home decor ideas that will make your tiny home space look bigger than ever before:

 

Curvy is the key

Usually these small homes are box in shape. So use your furniture to add curves to the house. Go for a round dinning & centre table. Go for more circular decor articles like round clock, round mirror. Add more oomph by using couches, sofas with slightly curve shape.

 

Use lighter shades:

Be very specific when choosing colors for the house. While dark & deep colors make the room look smaller, light colors make the space look bigger & open up the entire space. If your house already has a dark color scheme, cover it up by using curtains, carpets or rug of lighter shades. If you’re lucky enough to buy a new construction house, make sure the color hues are paid enough importance.

 

Go vertical in your storage

Do not go horizontal or extend sideways in storing things at smaller homes. When space is the major concern, creatively create shelves & place things one over the other. Use the wall space to hang or elevate racks one over the other this not only looks classy but also requires less space.

 

Create depth by adding layers

Add layers to the bed sheets with comforters or pillows & cushions. You can also layer your floor rug by placing one over the other of different shapes. Layering adds depth which can be easily achieved. But that doesn’t mean you just pile things one over the other. Placing cushions or bedding in contrast colors, prints & shapes creates the charm.

 

Use Multipurpose furniture

Using the right kind of furniture that doesn’t occupy too much space is ideal in such homes. Like a Sofa cum Bed that can be folded while watching TV and can be drawn down to make a bed in the night. Smart furniture like foldable dining table or hollow ottoman looks great and also requires less space.
