People say size matters for a home. The bigger the place, the more inviting and welcoming it feels. Recent trends, though, are leaning to smaller and smaller spaces. As a home addition contractor, we’ve helped many clients turn a cramped area into a roomier, more functional space. Here are four key tips that we espouse when it comes to space efficiency.
1. Multi-Functional Furniture
You’re limited by your furniture. Not every home can have a dining table and an island for cooking. A good way to work around this is to combine them. Multiple-use furniture can save you space, while giving you all the tools you need. For example, a comfy couch can also be folded into a nice bed.
2. Style by Eye Level
Looking down to observe a nice plant or a lovely picture isn’t just bad for your back. It can also emphasize just how small your place is. Accommodate your guests by hanging pictures and mirrors at eye level. Home addition companies do this to make the ceiling feel taller.
3. Brightness in Size
It’s been proven by science that brighter colors help with space. In this case, we suggest light grey, brown and white for your primary scheme. These neutral colors glow in the area. They also help emphasize your furniture, making the room feel bigger.
4. Keep It Simple
The best thing about small home spaces is that there’s no fuss. You don’t need to concern yourself with a large garden, dozens of windows and eight different chairs to watch over. Saving space means you can choose the things you need. If you’re not sure, a professional home additions contractor can guide you on what to prioritize.
