Interior design ideas to make the most of small homes
Amit Jangid, founder of Breathing Walls, an interior design studio, shared with HT Lifestyle five stunning interior design ideas for small homes.
1. Multi-purpose furniture
Every piece of furniture in a small home should have multiple uses. Furniture with multiple uses is essential to maximize the available space. Invest in furnishings like foldable dining that looks like decorative panels, wall-mounted beds, foldable study tables, and many other multi-purpose furniture. These pieces improve everyday living while preserving valuable square footage. Furthermore, furniture, including hidden storage spaces, may keep a small home clutter-free by making sure everything has a place.
2. Smart lighting
In a small home, well-placed lighting can create the illusion of enhancing the space of a room. A well-lit, aesthetically pleasing space can be achieved by combining ambient, task, and accent lighting. To get more floor and table space, consider installing wall sconces and pendant lights. You can also adjust the lighting to suit your needs and mood using dimmer switches.
3. Sliding glass doors
Traditional swing doors can take up a lot of space in small residences. Consider installing sliding partitions or pocket doors in place. Rooms can be opened or closed as needed with these space-saving options, allowing you to customize your living area for various activities and occasions.
4. Choose light colors
Light colors can provide a more open and airy feeling in a small room. Choose a subdued color scheme for your walls, furnishings and decor. Pastel colors, whites and soft grays can give the impression of a larger space. Well-placed mirrors can also reflect light and give the impression that the space is larger. To get this impression, consider hanging vanity mirrors or using reflective furniture.
5. Open shelves
Adopt a minimalist interior decorating style for your small space. Open shelving and focusing on essentials will help reduce clutter. Decorative and functional, open shelves may display your most cherished books, dishes or trinkets while freeing up valuable counter and cabinet space. To create the illusion of more space, choose furniture with clean lines and keep the decor basic and uncluttered.
