How To Make The Most Of The Smallest Rooms In Your House

800px-Small_room_-_interior.JPG

Anyone who has a box room in their home knows that they can easily go unused or become havens for storing all of the items that you haven’t used in the past twelve months. It’s about time that you put all of that stuff in the garage and started to utilize your small but beautifully formed room. Just because of its diminutive stature, doesn’t mean that it can’t be a useful addition to your home. Take a look at these ways to get the most out of the smallest spaces in your property.

Organization Is Key

When you don’t have a lot of space to play with, the room will be less forgiving when it comes to clutter. Just one book removed from a shelf and placed on the window sill can make the space look like a bomb has hit it. Even though space is limited, consider purchasing a piece of furniture that allows you to hide clutter away and keeps the space as ornament and item free as possible.

If you’re considering making your small room into a study, get a desk with plenty of drawers and utilize box files to keep paperwork from seeing the light of day. If a home gym will be gracing your room, grab some funky swimming lockers to store your weights, straps and energy drinks. Think a little outside the box and go quirky for all of your storage needs.

If you’re a big fan of shelving units, ditch the main frame and opt for the floating shelves. By mounting them higher than you would in a larger room, you will be drawing the eye upwards and generating a feeling of space.

Become A Master Of The Art Of Illusion

As with any small area, you want to create the feeling of space even if it isn’t really there. Begin by going back to basics and painting the walls and ceiling a light color. You’ll need to keep the deep burgundy and rich plum hues for your larger rooms. Don’t obstruct windows and put up a mirror to reflect the light around the room.

The best way to get inspired is to visit a showroom and immerse yourself in different interior design pieces and high-quality fixtures and fittings. Some stores like World of Renovation have their own in-house designers to aid you in creating the perfect small space. They’ll arm you with many tricks to emulate the feeling of space and make your room feel bigger.

Think About Materials

If you’re creating a home office, it might pay to purchase a glass or perspex topped desk. This way, even more light can be bounced within the room, and there are less harsh lines to break up the already minimal space. You may want to utilize glass bricks and mirrored surfaces that won’t take up too much visual space.

It can be tough to renovate the smaller rooms of the house and give them a purpose. However, it would be such a shame to leave these smaller areas of your home without any use as this would mean wasted square footage. By thinking more creatively about your space and utilizing these nifty little tricks, you’ll be able to make the most out of your small room.
