Smaller homes have lots of charm and appeal, as they offer a certain coziness. They can be challenging when it comes to things like storage and space, but homeowners can make the most out of their homes by making the right décor choices. Here are a few design ideas you can use to get the most out of your home.
Get Creative with Storage
When choosing furniture for your home, look for pieces that offer hidden storage. For instance, many ottomans come with interior storage to ensure your living room remains tidy. You can also find beds that provide storage areas underneath, which are perfect for bedding, linens, and other items. Added storage keeps your home neat and ensures all your belongings have a place to “live”, which helps with organization.
Mount Your Television
Entertainment centers take up a lot of space in the living room, especially if you have a sizable television. Mounting the TV frees up space, while also ensuring comfortable viewing for your family. While the installation process is not complicated, you must make sure the TV is sturdily affixed to the wall. Mounting sets will contain all the items you need, and some even come with a swivel to allow you to change the position of the TV. And if you’re not comfortable mounting the TV on your own, there are lots of local services that will do so for a reasonable price.
Use Strategically Placed Mirrors
While mirrors can’t actually expand the size of your home, they can create the illusion of more space. Placing a mirror across from a light source will brighten up the room by enhancing illumination throughout the home. Larger mirrors are also beneficial, as they give a room depth. You can also use a collection of smaller mirrors strategically arranged on a wall to expand the space.
