In the urban setting, every square footage you have is precious commodity. Making
use of every available space takes creativity and careful planning, so we’re here to help
Here are a few hacks to make sure no space goes to waste!
- Use every nook and cranny
Limited space usually means limited storage but, with a few smart
decisions, you can make use of every corner in your unit. Install shelves
above the counter in the kitchen, add a mini breakfast bar by the
window, DIY a convertible work table in the living room. Vertical space
matters as much as your actual floor space so get those creative juices
- Keep shelves open
Closed cupboards visually create clutter in areas and choosing open
shelving can draw the eyes upward and open the space up. The visual
continuity of the space makes it airier. This also enables you to use the
storage as display to showcase your inner Martha Stewart. If you prefer
closed cupboards, semi-opaque cupboard doors can be a good
- Use alternative room divisions
Skip the walls and bulky furniture. Visually dividing spaces will only
make your space look smaller and limited. Instead, choose slender
furniture that won’t take up space and can multifunction. For example,
you can place a slender-legged long table between the kitchen and the
living room to function as a kitchen island and double as a work-table.
Another trick is to use curtains if privacy is a concern.
- Scale your furniture and appliances
Know the measurements of your unit and buy the appropriately-sized
furniture to fit into it! Make sure your dream sofa isn’t too big and fluffy
for your actual living room. It can be underwhelming but overall, being
able to move in your home freely is more comfortable in the long run.
Another factor to consider is the appliances you will need to bring into
your home for everyday use. Make sure these are appropriately sized for
your needs and the available space as well.
- Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Mirrors create the effect of wider space the same way light, neutral
colors do. It can look chic as décor, too! Place large mirrors in strategic
places such as the corners of the bedroom and the living room. This will give the illusion that the space goes on far longer than it actually does by giving the eyes more places to wander.
Every home can be organized and chic no matter how small or limited the space is.
