3 Big Design Ideas for Small Interiors

With the prices of real estate shooting up day by day, it has become increasingly hard to get a large place within a limited budget. Even studio apartments these days have prices that are touching the skies!

So how do you make a small space seem larger and more welcoming? Here are a few building design ideas you can use that allow you to do this.

Introduce Layers

Large houses have the space for a separate office and wardrobe area, etc. This kind of flexibility is not possible in small spaces though. In order to utilize the benefits of separate wardrobes, bedroom area and workspace in a spatially challenged area, try incorporating layers. A loft bed or a loft workspace can allow you to create more space. Layering areas like the wardrobe and dressing area within one part of the house can allow you to free up more space effectively AND aesthetically.

Fold-Away Furniture

Furniture these days is highly adaptable to the spaces within a living area. Foldaway furniture like beds, coffee tables, settees, etc is easily available and can allow you to make more space in a small house. There a number of reliable suppliers available who deal in foldaway furniture that also provide storage space.

Fold out beds, iron tables, and coffee tables are just a few examples. There are a number of options available online as well. Depending on the client requirements, you can manipulate and design the placement of the foldaway furniture in a way that it does not seem crowded.

Hybrid Furniture

Hybrid furniture is a highly practical option for designing the interior of a spatially challenged house. This type of furniture serves at least two purposes. Consider the example of a sofa bed or a settee-combined coffee table. There are a number of options available and you can use your creativity to design the space in a way that is practical yet spacious. Building storage spaces under the bed and dining tables are a few examples of how you can use one piece of furniture for multiple purposes without compromising the final look.

Builders today have to be able to use their creativity and skill set to satisfy the demands of all kinds of clients. More and more people are opting for smaller living areas that are constructed in a manner that is both practical and spacious. The sky is the limit for the creativity you could use to accomplish this!
