Home Decoration for a Small House.
And here we are again at Sweet blog, the sweetest blog online. The best place for education (in the field of home design) and fun simultaneously.
Today, we want to talk about a fairly common issue that probably concerns many - How to design a not particularly large house.
Quite a few of us live in homes that are not particularly large. Student apartments / casual rental apartments / young couples/singles living alone / people with limited financial ability. The main thing that characterizes all of these is that they are people who do not necessarily need large living space.
Unfortunately, due to these circumstances, there is sometimes a kind of misconception that there is no essential need for serious design for these apartments.
How - the owners of these apartments often ask themselves - do we design a small apartment (and in some cases - temporarily), and is there any relevance to this at all?
So that's precisely why we're here - to help you with things that may not have been clear enough in home design.
You might be surprised to hear that there are pretty clear strategies for designing small apartments, and in this article, we will present some of them to you.
So actually, we ask you not to fall into this trap and mistakenly think that you are out of the home design game just because you have a small apartment.
You're totally in.
And now we'll teach you how.
It's time for you to get to know your best friend - Minimalism.
In our context, Minimalism is a design style that has become very popular in the last decade, and not necessarily only in the field of home design.
Minimalism will help you use the bare essentials to create a simple and uncluttered space, which will usually be helpful in the absence of ample living space.
As a general and knowledge-enriching introduction, you can read about it in our sweet blog and other articles like this.
The main lesson you should learn from minimalism is that you can definitely design your home to a high standard, even if you do not have ample space in your apartment.
Minimalism-less is more
Please do your research and absorb the minimalist design style because, as mentioned, it is the best solution you have (as a first step) when dealing with a situation like ours.
2. Let it shine.
Look, it's always better to look at reality with open eyes and a sober and honest look. If the current status is that you do not have enough space in your apartment - make sure to get the best out of it.
And how do you do that? You must be wondering.
An essential tip in this regard is that if you have already decided on a particular decoration, highlight it and let it shine!
After all, you do not have enough space either way, and If you have lingered too long in reading this paragraph, you are probably not a big proponent of minimalism either, and you are actually interested in some flashy decoration. Therefore, our advice to you is this: in the tiny space that you do have. Make sure that there will be a prominent decoration that shouts, "Look at me."
It turns out that for you, at least, every drop of space is essential - so make sure to make some noise with the little you have.
I'm small. But noisy!
3. Focus on a specific space.
In the end, a man must know how to play his cards. And if you do not have a vast space, then to avoid overloading as compensation, it is better to choose a specific area/room in which most of the design effort will be invested.
In this way, on the one hand, it will create a separate space that is characterized by Restrained/elegant and centralized decoration. On the other hand, your home will not turn into a kind of tiny place that is simply overloaded with accessories just to create a false representation of a high level of home design. Sometimes, less is more.
In the absence of a large space - just choose a small room and focus on it!
Moreover, by doing so, you will be able to create a refreshing design style expressed by being present only in a specific part of the house while the rest of the house "enjoys" a relaxing and clean design tranquility. Try to think of it as your refreshing design innovation.
4. Small things for a small space.
Another solution for your small home is to use design means appropriate for its size - small.
Please make no mistake about it. There is no intention to go back to what was said in the first paragraph - minimalism. Our purpose is just to point out that the intuitive solution for a small living space is small things. And if you do not have enough space, make sure that your home decorations are not particularly large.
You can look at this Pinterest board to get inspired regarding tiny home decorations that can help you with your small space problem.
Tiny things to a tiny place - adapt!
With that being said, despite this excellent tool for designing and decorating your tiny home with little accessories, we need to note (again) that you must be careful not to fall into the "design overload" trap, as stated in section 3. The intuitive tendency is to exaggerate a little (No room for design accessories? No problem - just get small ones like this. and a lot!), so we need to emphasize the qualified dose again.
In conclusion, we hope the article has helped you to some extent if you live in a small house and do not know how to design it properly.
