How To Decorate A Small House.


And here we are again at Sweet Blog, the sweetest blog online.

The place to be for all fans of the 'Home Concept.'.


Today, we want to discuss a fairly common issue that concerns many - Decorating a small house.

Quite a few of us live in not particularly large homes - student apartments, casual rental apartments, Newlyweds, singles living alone, and people with limited financial ability. If you're reading this, you're not alone in your design challenges. 

Being one that does not necessarily need/can afford large living spaces is the main thing that characterizes most of them. 

But don't worry- we've got some cost-effective design tips that are not only practical but also feasible for you.

Unfortunately, due to these circumstances, a common misconception occasionally comes up: the claim that these apartments do not require any design action due to their small size.

Let's debunk this myth and show you how, with the right design strategies, even the smallest spaces can be transformed into inspiring and functional living areas.

'How?' - the owners of these apartments often ask - 'Do we design our small (temporary?) house?'

That's precisely why we're here - to help you with nuances from the world of home design, such as space optimization, color schemes, and furniture placement.

You might be surprised to hear there are pretty clear strategies for designing small apartments. In this article, we will discuss space optimization, color schemes, and furniture placement, and present some examples of small house designs, accompanied by specific examples.

Don't let the size of your apartment fool you. You're not out of the home design game - you're right in the middle of it. We're here to show you how to make the most of your space.

As always, later in the article, a refreshing infographic presentation and a video summarizing its content will be presented.


'How To Decorate A Small House - Smart Design Ideas For Small Spaces.'

Hop on! 




1. Minimalism.



The German architect Mies Van Der Rohe once said:

"Less is more."


It's time to get to know your new best friend - Minimalism design style.

In our context, Minimalism is a design style that has become very popular in the last decade, not exclusively in the field of home design.

Minimalism, your versatile ally, will guide you in using the bare essentials to craft a simple and uncluttered space, especially beneficial in compact living areas.

As a general and knowledge-enriching introduction, you can read about it in our sweet blog and other articles like this.

The key takeaway from Minimalism is its ability to elevate your home's design, even in the absence of ample space.

2. Let It Shine.


When dealing with a small apartment, it's crucial to make the most of the space you have. This means being realistic about your situation and Finding ways to optimize your living area.

'And how do I do that?' You must be wondering.

After all, you do not have enough space either way. So, suppose you have lingered too long reading this paragraph. In that case, you are probably not a big proponent of 'Minimalism' either, and you are actually interested in some flashy decorations.

With this in mind, our advice is designed to help you maximize your space and create a visually appealing home.

3. Focus On A Specific Space.


Ultimately, a man must know how to play his cards. And if your home space is limited, you have the freedom to avoid overloading but rather choose a specific area/room in which to invest most of your design effort. This is your canvas, your space to create.

In this way, you will create a separate space characterized by restrained and elegant decoration. Your home will not turn into a tiny place overloaded with 'stuff', but will exude a high-level home design, a testament to your refined taste.

Sometimes (Most of the time, actually), less is more. 

Moreover, by doing so, you will be able to create a refreshing design style expressed by being present only in a specific part of your house while, at the same time, the rest of it "enjoys" a relaxing and 'clean' design tranquility.

4. Small Things For A Small Space.


Another Practical solution for your small home problem is to use design elements appropriate for its size - ta-da - small ones.

This approach empowers you to make the most of your space and resources.

Please make no mistake about it. There is no hidden intention here to go back to what was said in the first paragraph - Minimalism - We do not tend to duplicate content. Our sole purpose is just to point out that the most intuitive solution for a small living space design is small 'Things.' And if you do not have enough home space, ensure your home decorations are not particularly large.

You can look at this Pinterest board to get some inspiration regarding tiny home decorations that can help you with your small space challenge.


Tiny things for a tiny place!


With that being said, we need to note (again) that you must be careful not to fall into the 'Overload Design' trap.

This cautionary advice is to keep you informed and help you avoid potential design pitfalls.

As stated in paragraph 3 - The intuitive tendency is to exaggerate a bit ('No room for accessories? No problem - get small ones. and a lot!').

So, we just wanted to emphasize once again the importance of a balanced approach to design, where every element serves a purpose and contributes to the overall aesthetic.
