A beautiful house does not necessarily have to be big in size. A small home interior can indeed look beautiful. By having a small home, you can maximize the function of each object or furniture you have.
Here are several things you can do when designing your small home interior to keep it beautiful:
First, try not to use too many different colors and materials in the interior decoration of your home. Limiting the number of colors and types of materials can help expand the interior of your home visually, especially in an open-space or studio apartment.
However, if you want to add color, you can take advantage of colorful artwork as an accent. This method is also able to prevent the interior of the house looking dull.
Second, divide areas in the home according to the function. Whenever possible, use a divider which does not cover or insulate the interior of your home visually. For example, you can use a book shelf to divide the bedroom and working space in a studio apartment. The bookshelf provides spaces in which you can see the other areas of the house.
Third, use items that have more than one function. For example, you could use a dining table that also functions as a work table. You can use the ottoman with a space in the holder to put bedding or other items. If an object can be used for a variety of needs, you only need one such object. You can save space and costs.
However, if you cannot find such an object, you can still take advantage of items that are already available. Try to explore the various possibilities in storage. For instance, you could create a storage area under the bed.
Fourth, make a loft or an additional level inside your apartment. Of course, do this if you believe it is possible and does not violate the rules of your apartment.
The extra level can be used to put the bed, or as a work space. It can help you reduce surfaces covered with furniture.
Fifth, use mirrors to decorate the interior of your home. The mirrors can spread the light better and make a visual illusion. Your house will look more spacious than it is.
Lastly, do not be afraid to express your personality in your home interior. Although your house size is limited, you do not need to limit your favorite ornaments. You can still use any decorative lighting, window decoration, beautiful furniture or accessories, and patterned or brightly colored wall coverings. Just make sure you are comfortable in that place.
