When decorating a small house, you need to make the most out of the available space. Despite your smaller scale of living, you can feel like living in a bigger home. You just need more careful design plans and some carefully selected home décor that will give your home the illusion of bigger space.
With that in mind, we are going to take a look at some simple yet stylish decorating ideas for a small house. Let’s get started:
Remove Clutter- cutting the clutter is always the first and most important step when decorating a small house. Decorating a cluttered small room can be next to impossible. In any home, you can always find things to discard, sell, or give away. Only keep the stuff that you need or value. Decluttering can give you a more practical and open living space. Stylish storage containers can help you stay organised and clutter-free.
Choose Lighter Colours- now that your small house is decluttered, it is time to add some colour. Lighter colours like pastels, magnolias or pearl white can make your interior look bigger with extraordinarily little effort. Lighter colours are also reflective, and they can maximise the favourable effects of natural light. Creating a sense of a more spacious interior and airiness should be much easier. To enhance the effect, choose lighter colours for skirting boards, mouldings, and wall trim than you use on the walls.
Keep It Simple- over-decorating will make your interior look cluttered again. Keep things simple and avoid going overboard with colours and patterns. It is preferable to avoid or minimise the use of jazzy patterns or overly bright colours. Simple home decor such as a classic tea set or uniquely designed incense diffusers will keep things organised and give a sensation of more space.
Preserve Empty Space- empty space is crucial in interior. A large room can still feel cramped if it’s loaded with ornaments, wall art, and prints. Empty spaces will make your interior feel bigger, by creating a feeling of airiness and spaciousness. Position couches near the wall, but not right against it. Raised furniture may add small pockets of empty space in your interior.
