Nowadays many people prefer small minimalist house designs than the big ones. A small home will ease the owner in dealing with the cleaning and maintenance. Yet, living in a house with a limited space is also not an easy thing, especially when it comes to furniture selection and furniture arrangement.
The following are six tips to live elegantly in a simple home. You soon will know that a small home can be that smart, beautiful, and friendly.
1 . Multifunctional. Fill your room with double – duty furniture, the one with two role functions. For example, you can choose a bench that can also be used as a storage area or a sofa that can be used as a bed.
2 . Treat your guests nicely. If you have a special room, it would be nice. But if not, do not worry too much. When friends or relatives stay, you can still make it comfortable by giving them a bit of luxury. For instance, give them a pillow and blanket which are soft and clean or fancy cutlery at breakfast. In that way, they will feel like staying in a hotel, despite the fact that they actually sleep on a sofa.
3 . Wise appearance. Before you purchase some furniture, think about the function and aesthetics first. Everything that is in the room should have a purpose. For example, if you have a collection of many books, you can make them as a focal point. It can be done by choosing a unique bookcase in terms of color or shape. That way, you do not need to add accessories in your room.
4. Show your dark side. Some say that dark colors will make a room look narrower. In fact, dark colors can make a room feel more spacious because the eye does not see the barriers and boundaries of furniture
5. Consider sense and agronomy. Do an approach to your room in sensory. Find out how the room looks, smells, sounds, and feels when you touch all the elements in it. Customize everything according to your wishes or tastes. For example, you can install an air freshener with vanilla scent, place a large vase in the corner of the room for visual elements, or add a rug on the floor.
6. Efficient. Keep your room neat and clean. In that way, every movement you do will become more efficient. Just imagine what would happen if a small room look messy.
Hopefully the above six tips can make you feel more comfortable staying in a small bungalow or a studio apartment.
