Small and awkward spaces in the home definitely come with their own unique design hurdles. We get asked all the time how we can maximise the space and turn small spaces into a light, airy and inviting space to enjoy.
Designing for small spaces is such a creative experience, with the right advice and plan you can end up with a practical design without sacrificing style.
So, whether you need help with a small room or an awkwardly shaped room feature, these top design tips can help you get the most out of your small space.
Mirrors can transform your space, making it feel larger, lighter and airier. Consider the placement and size of the mirror in your space to make sure you get the most out of it. For example, if you have limited wall space, mirrored wardrobe doors can add that extra light and feeling of space that you need.
The best method to utilise every inch of space in small or awkward areas is to install bespoke furniture. Furniture that is made to measure and perfectly fit your space and storage needs. Another thing to consider is bespoke storage can mean any solution, from cupboards to wardrobes to shelves. It can make the most out of your storage space and style.
Consider your space potential vertically as well as your floor space. Taking cabinets or bookcases all the way up to the ceiling can unlock how tall your room feels. Could you benefit from floor to ceiling storage? Don’t let precious space go to waste!
Consider how you could incorporate a range of shelving and open and closed storage in a fitted unit. Align it with your style with different finish options too!
Small or awkwardly shaped spaces can often feel dark and cold due to poor light sources. Overcome the lack of natural light by adding plenty of light sources in the room. From lamps to striking ceiling fixtures, don’t forget the potential of adding light to shelves and open furniture. Small, featured LEDs can highlight any dark areas and really open up a room.
To really make the most of your space, consider finding furniture which also doubles as clever storage. Such as beds with built-in drawers, or benches with space to store extra duvets or blankets. When planning a small space, every piece of furniture needs to pull its weight.
Keeping clutter at bay can help make your small space feel larger, keep items out that you love and make sure everything else has its place stowed away.
