At one point of time in our lives, in relation to the management of spaces in our homes, we have had great tension in decorating that small place – that small place beneath the shelf, or perhaps, thinking big, that small little warehouse in your backyard, or that ill maintained garden in your best friend’s home – we have all always wanted for that place to be beautiful, as much as we want the other parts of our homes or our offices to be beautiful. Of course, everybody wishes. But, how many of us could actually get it done? It is not much technical to be actually equipped in decorating a place to be beautiful, nor does it require a very advanced skill set. All it needs is a pretty good understanding of our surroundings which you would have gained through the sheer idea of familiarity with a given place, and also a body that is willing to work. So, here’s presenting the 9 ways to decorate the small place that might be nagging you.
9 Creative And Simple Ideas To Decorate Small Places
1. Using smaller things in place of bigger ones
Well, wasn’t that obvious? Obviously, yes! Probably the best of ways too. All you have to do is choose the smallest of things, which are pretty and cute enough to lighten up the small space that you want to decorate. You could always go with a set of smaller, well decorated and well-designed chairs, rather than ultra large sofas which can take up a lot of space.
2. Make it look bigger, perhaps?
Well, if you draw a line and draw a line bigger than the present one, then obviously the previous line will end up looking small. In a similar way, we could always decorate our smaller places, only doing it in the reverse: using smaller tables, book shelves etc, to make the room look bigger.
3. Inculcate some colour
A colourful place is beautiful, for anyone who sees it. Colours could be blinding in some circumstances, and maybe, that is all you need in this small space. Using colourful blankets, mattresses, and pillows always helps in providing such excellent mix of exuberance to the room.
4. Using windows to a minimal level
A window not only provides ventilation, but it also could be helpful for decorative purposes. Especially in a small room, it could be very useful, for the hanging of curtains and sheets, which will add colour to the room.
5. Use additional paraphernalia
If you want the room to be really beautiful, a statue or an idol of a smaller size doesn’t hurt at all. Always go for something that would be liked by everyone, in the case of choosing idols.
6. Posters? Yes!
A little poster, here and there, depicting some favourite saying of yours or your favourite rockstar always help in getting you fans for your room all along.
7. Post-modernist art? Check.
A portrait of something hanging down the walls always helps in getting the attention of people who see your rooms. Plus, posters and paintings are not something that would take up space from the width and breadth of the room’s internal surface. All it does is just hand down the wall, and you don’t have to be a chief architect to actually decide whether that takes up space or not. Make sure, you use a painting or a poster that doesn’t offend anyone who might look at it, or it may lead some kind of debate on nationality or patriotism. Trust me, it always does.
8. Use paint, in a newer way
Always go for better combinations and permutations of painting styles to the older, conventional ones. With the world around moving up on the international scale in every aspect of living, you cannot expect to be still in the 60s.
9. Fans, and other stuff…
It’s better to use a ceiling fan rather than a table fan, or even better, a smaller sized air conditioner or air cooler always helps.
Summing It Up
These are just some steps to improve that smaller living space that has been a pain in the neck to actually be improved. Hope this helps you to make up your mind regarding the way you approach the makeover of that small room or space.
