Mount Your Tv

A media console is a waste of space in a small living room.

In a small house, every inch counts, so be double sure not to miss the architectural quirks, they will actually become your favourite area of the home. Area by the window? Invest in pretty customised bay window seating so that you can use it as a window nook to read and relax in. (And You will be able to let go of the bulky couch that takes up half the studio!) Pile on the pillows and add a pendant light for added light.

Design Custom seating

Use Mirrors

It is the oldest design trick in the book: Mirrors make your space feel larger , lighter and airier. And a fun convex ones add a lot of personality without taking up a lot of space. Mirrors also add that glam effect if you go for decorative ones.

Make Every Piece Count

Choose furnishings that offer maximum functionality in minimal square footage.

For example, instead of an end bench, opt for a desk with a small chair. It will be useful in getting ready and you can even work on it.

Use Every Piece Wisely

If your kitchen lacks a island and your living room is not separate from the kitchen, it can still be made functional. Choose a tall wooden table that can work as counter space for cooking and as a two top dining table.

Use Calm Tones

Calm and even toned rooms make any area look airer than they really are. They are soothing to the eye and hence illusion of more space. Be sure to add a variety of textures to keep the space together and not looking flat.

Customise Storage

Storages can really come in handy, bespoke built ins, storage nooks, and furniture tailored to your exact needs utilises every available inch. When they are part of your walls, you don't loose as much square footage. Extra storage under a sofa or bench is a good idea.

Get a Wall Desk

Small spaces often leave no space for an office, but using a mounted wall desk takes up wall less room and you can even mount shelves above it. They look minimalistic while fulfilling their purpose.

Use Smart Seating

Foldable seating can be super compact and can be stored away while guests aren't over. A stool or a puff in the living room can be an ideal piece to purchase.

Use Bigger (But Fewer) Furnishings

It may seem contrary, but outfitting a small space with just a few large scale pieces (rather than mashup of small sized furniture) can actually make it feel grander. Just avoid to urge to push all of your furniture up against the walls. Leaving space behind the furniture makes it look wider than it is.

Think Vertical

Often under utilised space is between the tops of furniture and a ceiling with hanging or high-mounted elements. Construct bookcases and cabinets all the way to the top- it will make the room feel taller.

Build a Partial Glass Wall

Removing walls, enlarging windows or swapping solid doors for glass to open up and connect adjacent spaces makes a space more airy and allow easy movement.

Good lighting makes a big difference

Good lighting makes a difference in making a room look dull and uninteresting. Make sure to install good lighting in smaller, compact spaces like a bathroom with a small window.
