If imitation really is the best form of flattery then you would be wise to see how others are doing it. Entire TV series are being dedicated to this smaller living space theory. There are many things you can do to make your space appear bigger. Some of the ideas I’ve personally felt were ingenious include stairs that double as drawers, tables with chairs that when pushed in form a piece of furniture that looks like a trendy table that’s fully enclosed all around. If you haven’t seen a product called the “Sofa Bunk Bed” do a quick Google search! It’s a modern day piece of genius for space saving and clever interior design!
Interior Design Tips
When selecting ideas and items to include in your space try to choose things that are lighter in color as dark colors tend to make spaces appear smaller. If you are looking to make one bigger living space appear as two separate rooms you can consider using a shelf that will not only provide a divider for the space but also double as storage! You’ll just have to make sure your storage area stays neat and organized as clutter always makes small spaces appear smaller. If you have two floors and your stairs have an open space below them, choose some kind of storage piece that will double as a way to spice up your decoration as well! Perhaps you use shelving with the square holes and paint them alternating black and white to give that modern and trendy look while also conquering space challenges.
