Home Decoration Hacks – Make Small Spaces Seem Larger!

Bangalore has its fair share of cubbyhole apartments, and over the years, we’ve lived through a fair few of them! But space, or the lack of it, notwithstanding, with the amazing weather, and lifestyle options, in Bangalore, we managed a few tricks on how to maximize and create the illusion of space – even when all we could afford as students was a broom closet! Here’s how we did it!

Create zones.

Making the most of a small space is an exercise of mind over matter. Compartmentalize your living needs and create zones to arrange things in an efficient manner. Opt for a loft bed or a loft desk so that one room can be used for different purposes.

Choose smart furniture.

Owing to the problem of cramped apartments and living areas, designers have come up with innovative furniture designs which not only save a lot of space, but also transforms according to your needs. Acting as hybrid furniture, these are multifunctional pieces and ensure that you utilize the space that you have in your home to the fullest. Tables which extend to accommodate extra guests; a fold out iron table or a collapsible desk, or chairs that become tables- these are just a few examples.

 Use vertical space wisely.

Storing things vertically is the most economical use of space. But it is usually overlooked by many people. Space near your doors or windows may look useless, but with a proper cupboard installation they can save a lot of space and at the same time look appealing. These shelves can be used to stack things in your living room that come in handy every day, like a book, the board games, mugs, etc.

 

Room with long vertical curtains
Hang curtain rods higher than the height of the window to create the illusion of space. Buy bigger curtains than usually needed and make sure they reach the ground, to create the effect of height.

Spaces can seem much larger, especially if given the illusion of height. Curtains can help you do this, very effectively. Things like hanging the curtain rod higher and choosing vertical stripes for your curtains can greatly affect the look of your room, making it seem much higher and bigger.
