{September 16, 2009}   Smart Ideas and Tips for Small Space Decor

If space comes at a premium in your house, then you need a few smart ideas for small spaces. There are several compromises and adjustments to be made, in case of small spaces, in order to ensure comfortable living. This is the reason why decoration for these type of places at home can  be a rather hard job, as wrong choices can make a home look and feel cramped.

Here are a few ideas that can help you design big in a small space. These ideas can transform the looks of your house offering a new concept and new space which was hidden before. Bringing style and illusion of additional free space is not that hard if you try a few ideas suggested here.

Distinctive DetailsBuilt-in bench seatingReclaim wasted space under a staircase as storage

Fabulous Hang-Ups: Turn a closet or corner of your room into a work zone. Slide along a curtain rod with drapery panels to make it easy to conceal the clutter. You can duplicate this effect even without an architectural niche or bay, by curtaining off an area across the width of a room. Just hang drapes from a rod or thin wire suspended from ceiling.

Distinctive Details: Add storage as well as architectural heft with a built-in. Incorporate a recessed daybed into cabinet’s design to maximize limited floor space and eliminate the need to buy a sofa. With this built-in add storage as well as architectural heft to your room. Add cushions covered with fabric remnants to make this alcove cushy and inviting.

Landing Zone: Transform often-unused space at the top of stairs into a hot spot destination. Built-in bench seating capitalizes on sunny window on this second-floor landing (see pic in middle), which is creating a cozy reading retreat. Flip-up lids under bench cushions provide access to an intelligent hidden storage as well.

Step It Up: Utilize waste space under a staircase as storage. You can make cabinets or shelves under staircase and turn it into a strong architectural feature. As seen in picture above, baskets are adding eye-pleasing texture to the space. They’re very helpful in keeping linens and other kitchen odds and ends corralled.

Great Proportions: An oversize mirror can balance the heft of sofa in a living area. Add a large patterned pillow as a strong focal point on main sofa. Use floor to ceiling decors, like wispy tree branches at corners, which subtly pull all elements together.

There’s no need of a professional interior designer to create spaces in home. Just use wide imaginations and you can add space marvels to your home sweet home!!
