28 Ideas For Small Rooms
Use every square inch effectively
In small apartments and rooms, you have to be inventive in order to create enough space. Here are a few ideas on how to make it easier.
- Bed with storage space: A bed with storage space is a blessing in small apartments - you won't believe how much extra space you'll suddenly have. You can either buy such a bed or you can build one yourself.
- Wall lamps instead of floor lamps: Floor lamps look nice, but take up a lot of floor space which is a problem in small rooms. Luckily, today there are a large number of stylish wall lamps that are in no way inferior to floor lamps in terms of design.
- Divide rooms: By deliberately setting up furniture you can optically divide a room. This creates the impression that a room consists of two parts (eg kitchen and living room). Bar tables with stools or bookshelves are ideal for this.
- Less is more: small apartments and rooms, by their very nature, offer limited space. To make effective use of the space it is helpful to keep things tidy and regularly get rid of things that are not being used.
- Radiator "roofing": radiators often take up a lot of space. However, by covering it with a shelf, you can create space where there was none before.
- Use corners: Instead of placing a box or similar storage in every corner - which can quickly look suffocating and cluttered - use a shelving system. Open shelves make a room look bigger.
- Mirrors above all else: Any kind of reflective surface makes a room look bigger. Mirrors are the easiest way to make small rooms appear more spacious.
- Go up: If you have a small room with high ceilings, a loft bed is a great option. This creates a few square meters of additional floor space quickly and easily.
- Flexibility on wheels: Rolling furniture can be a blessing in small rooms. This way you can furniture around quickly and easily if you are expecting visitors, for example.
- Halving: Sometimes you might have a very narrow area such as a corridor. A table halved lengthwise and attached to the wall might be a good option here.
- Form follows function: Do not be restricted by traditional rules for furnishing. Keep what you need and let go of the rest. Look around and identify what you can do without. Do you really need a large dining table when living alone in a small apartment?
- Many lights: Many small light sources are better than one big one. You can use spotlights to focus on certain areas.
- Green up with plants: Plants often take up a lot of room, but they also add vitality and energy. If floor space is limited, you can hang plants on the wall or ceiling.
- Coordinated colour scheme: An apartment with many colours looks restless. A coordinated colour scheme makes even small apartments seem friendlier and more inviting.
- Appliances on the wall: If you only have a small built-in cabinet as storage space for household appliances, you can use the door by installing storage options there. For instance, hang up a broom on the door instead of obstructing floor space.
- Magnets and hooks in the kitchen: In your kitchen, you can create more storage space by using magnetic strips for the knives. You can also store a lot on hooks: from a wooden spoon to a small pan.
- Thin legs: Use pieces of furniture with thin, small and inconspicuous legs. These do not obscure the view, which makes each room look bigger.
- Folding table: In small apartments, there is often no room for a proper desk. A folding table is a good option if you do not want to use the dining table as your work space.
- Wall shelves: Shelves that are fixed to the wall are a wonderful way to create extra storage space. You can place other pieces of furniture under the wall-mounted shelves, such as a desk.
- Sliding doors: If possible, replace regular doors with sliding doors. That way you can free up the space that would be otherwise occupied by the arc of the door.
- Trolleys: Small trolleys with several levels not only look stylish, they also offer flexible storage space.
- Hanging bedside table: If you do not space for a bedside table, a hanging table attached to your bed is a good alternative.
- Clothes rack: A cupboard or an armoire is not necessary to put away clothes. Clothes can also be stored on hangers and stored on clothes racks. The room will look larger. Pluse, you gain more flexibility without a heavy cabinet.
- Multifunctional furniture: Furniture that has a variety of uses is a must in small homes because it maximises every available inch.
- White walls: Use the colour white on walls to make spaces look larger.
- Transparent coffee table: A coffee table with a transparent (eg. glass) tabletop does not obstruct the view and creates the impression of more space. Plus you can store smaller items such as low stools under it.
- Chests as a coffee table: An alternative to a glass coffee table is the use of a chest. So you have storage space in addition to a table.
- Use space effectively: No matter how small the area, put every little bit of space to use. For example, you can hang up your towel on a hook on your bedroom door.
