Space constraint has made apartment homes trendy in India, offering a streamlined and minimalist approach. Micro-lifestyle living has captivated the minds of the millennial generation, with creative solutions that transform small spaces making it possible to live big while living small. Maximize space to make your apartment feel spacious and welcoming. Here, we feature some intelligent solutions that would be ideal for small space living in apartments.
Keep It Neutral
Fool your eye into thinking that the apartment is more spacious by adding calm, even-toned hues. A cheerful color, like pale turquoise hue, is a good idea to set a happy mood in a tiny room.Ensure to add a variety of textures to keep the apartment interesting.
When space is limited, limit your purchase of new, bulky furniture, like armoires and clothes dressers which occupy a lot of floor space. Buy just a few large-scale furniture pieces to make the interiors grander. Don’t stack all of your furniture up against the walls because space behind the furniture makes the room look wider than it is. Be resourceful by using all surface space like even a windowsill for decor, lighting, and other essentials when there’s no room for an extra table.
Opt for openness
Separate rooms by pocket doors having glass windows which permit light to flow throughout the space while also creating separation. And even better, they slide right into the wall when not being used, taking up much less space than swinging doors.
Use Space on the Walls
Mirrors on the walls make your space feel larger, lighter, and airier. And a convex mirror to add a lot of personality to interiors. Mount your TV on the wall as a media console is the biggest space waster in a small living room. Use open and closed shelving installed on walls to remove bookshelves, and storage furniture units off of the floor and on to the walls. Or another option is to opt for a mounted wall desk as it takes up way less room-and you can even mount shelves above it for even more storage space.
Opt for furniture which can serve multiple purposes. Find a table that can function as a desk and a dining table, get a deep sofa that can double as a guest bed, or buy cubes that serve as a coffee table and bonus seats when guests are over. Buy extra seating that can fold up and be super compact so you can store it away while the guests aren’t over.
