Crafty Storing shelves
Turn your small kitchen into two different rooms, with a wall divider. They are locally known as screens. Though regular kitchen cupboards act as an excellent storage place, the open and organized storage shelves are much appealing and attention-grabbing. The wall dividers separate the kitchen from the dining area but then transforms the kitchen into two separate rooms. Moreover, the ceiling-to-floor shelves are an ideal place for storing and displaying the most-wanted things and beautiful and fragile glassware.
Clever Bathroom Storage
Narrow designed wall cabinets or shelves are an excellent way to keep your bathroom basics yet in a stylish way. Purchase attractive-looking canisters for holding the cotton swabs and your daily-use body cream. Keep a vanity to store your unpleasant looking toilet items! Small-sized wicker baskets can hold many knick-knacks. Place them on the bathroom shelves as extra and secret storage.
Multi-Use Space for Home Office
There are times when you cannot avoid a multi-use space. Try clubbing your home office section with the guest bedroom. To make good usage of the same, use the adjoining walls to your benefit. A simple desk unit or study unit along with a few shelves can be designed and appropriately placed. Connect a single bed to the study table. It will act as a boon in disguise when you have sudden guests at home! During day-time store away the bed for a more creative and spacious work area. Try not to let any extra space go unexploited. The nook in-between the small closets transform into a simplified and efficient work area too. Added shelves over the study table make room for displaying and storing books. As the table is wall-mounted, it takes very little space, while leaving an open alley in your bedroom for movements.
Shelving unit below the Staircase
Any corner or edge of your house enhances with the aid of an additional storing solution. A shelving unit added directly below the staircase can do wonders. Take full advantage of the awkward-looking extra space! Situated just beside the cooking area, try transforming the place into a mini bar, storing the bar-related essentials and various other accessories. If not so, turn this place into a mini-library by displaying your book collection.
Creative usage of extra space
Innovative usage of the extra space in-between the two-floor levels is a good and unique idea. You can store all the toys, books or other display items over here. Plan to divide the space into six shelves to cater to the optical storage. Small or medium-sized canvas bins act appropriately to keep toys out of sight.
Add-on a Full-body mirror
Add a full-body mirror, which will help in expanding the space visually. It is stated as one of the best, as well as most natural tricks in the designing world! The huge or full-body mirror add-on to dimension to the whole area. Your small sized bedroom will get the ‘larger than life’ effect, owing to the same. When not required, pull the curtains to hide the mirror. It will give a warmer and hemmed-in effect.
Floor – to – ceiling window treatments with sheer curtain divider
Floor – to – ceiling window treatments help in making the living area look spacious. Apart from the small floor area, the living area featuring extra-heightened ceilings automatically draws in attention towards the walls. It reverberates with a much more substantial feeling. Sheer curtains are excellent options for dividing two spaces. Floor lamps fixed at the edges illuminate them further. Incorporate a flat extension cord to make the lights movable and easily manageable, for long-lasting use. A beautiful, designed, silk fabric sheer curtain adds to the dramatic portion. It will thus visually detach the dining area from the living one.
Go for lighter shaded walls
Try and avoid using dark shaded hues. Lighter varieties will help in making your space look more prominent in size. For instance, paint one side of the wall with a tan – grey tone, leaving the other three in a lighter shade. Illuminate this focal wall with sonneman lighting to add punch to the whole effect! Crisp everyday white furniture and built-in units will successfully transform your small living area into a spacious one.
