How To Get The Most Out Of A Small Space

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

You might think that when it comes to renovating your small kitchen or bathroom that your options are limited. However, in truth, a small space allows you to become as creative as  you like and gives you room to move in terms of the design elements you use, which may look out of place in a larger room.

Here are some unique ways to help inspire your next small bathroom or kitchen renovation and get the most out of the small space.

Add space by using mirrors
To make your small space give the illusion of having more space, simply add mirrors. They maximise the appearance of light in the room and give the impression that your space is much larger. Ideally you will add one big mirror along one wall. Don’t be tempted to go overboard!

Have you thought about building up?
If placed strategically, adding shelves vertically can do an amazing job at drawing the eye up and optically enlarging any small space. Don’t waste the wall space, instead use it wisely to provide extra space for knick-knacks. Most virtual shelving solutions take up next to no floor space and will give your small space a talking point.

Keep things out of sight
There are a multitude of hidden storage ideas that will help to de-clutter your small bathroom or small kitchen. Get creative and go contemporary with roll-in bathroom sinks that can be pushed back into the wall when you need a little extra space. Make the most of a small 
space by ensuring everything has a home and you will be organised in no time.

Choose your colours wisely
When it comes to making a small space appear larger, choosing the right colour scheme is essential. Light and pastel colours would optically enlarge any space and a unified colour theme would do wonders for any small room. Think about painting over your dark, old cabinets to give them a makeover and refresh your cramped kitchen!
