Living in Big Spaces : Three things that makes a big difference

This May, we’re all about Small Spaces, a bread-and-butter topic on Spacio and a personal favorite of ours. No doubt we’ll cover lots of tips, inspiration and ideas for small-space living over the coming weeks, but first let’s revisit what we already know works. Here are three classic ways to make living little work for you.

 

Lighting

Small is one thing, but small and dark is quite another. Almost nothing has the power to transform a room like lighting.

 

Work with the natural light available to you by keeping furniture low and out of the light’s path, using window treatments which let in as much light as possible, and by using reflective surfaces like mirrors to increase the light’s throw. In terms of artificial light, make sure you have sufficient general, ambient and task lighting for all the ways in which you use the space. Once it’s properly lit, even a small room can feel spacious.

 

Organization & Storage

It goes without saying that in a small space, storage, and more importantly, organization, is key.Furniture with added storage and built-ins are a great way to achieve the former, and the latter comes down to habit forming and learning to live with less. It’s a constant struggle for many of us, but tidying regularly and paring down will make a big difference in fully embracing your small home, not simply making do with it.

 

Versatility & Flexibility

In a small space with multiple uses, having a flexible layout and/or furniture can be a saving grace. Search out pieces with multiple uses: a desk/dining table hybrid (or even a wall-mounted dining table), a comfortable and stylish sofa bed, nesting tables and rolling pieces can all make life a little easier for the small apartment dweller.

Visualizations of Modern Apartments that Inspire

The beauty of visualization is that is able to capture the most current trends in interior design. It is such a live medium that changes can be made down to the wire and on the whim of either designer or client. Visualizations such as these, which give substance to modern apartment concepts, by SpacioDesigners. They serve as an indispensible reference for all those artisans who collaborate on a project and a source of stimulation for those members of the greater community seeking interior inspiration.
