Be it a large villa or a compact apartment, proper planning and space optimization is essential to ensure that your home doesn't look small and congested. A well-designed home is one that is flexible to adapt to the constantly changing needs of the family that it accommodates. The architectural planning should be such that it ensures functional spaces avoiding the presence of dead spaces. You do not have to be an expert in the industry to do space optimization in your home. Follow these interesting tips to make the most of the spaces you have in your home.
Some areas in the house need special attention and the kitchen is one of them. Since it is a space that is most important for you and your family, you must ensure that you have ample space to work comfortably. If you feel that your kitchen is small and congested, consider these tips that will help to make your kitchen look large and spacious.
Colour palette and wall treatment
Irrespective of how big or small your kitchen is, we'd strongly recommend that you stick to a light colour palette. Lighter colours make the spaces look more bright and large thus making your kitchen look large and airy. Likewise, choose tiles with minimal and small designs in order to create an impression of spaciousness. Also, avoid too many contrasting patterns, textures and designs to make your space look large and tidy.
Opt for open shelves
Yes, we are going back in time, as open shelves are yet again replacing closed cabinets. Closed overhead cabinets create a sense of claustrophobia and make a space look really congested. Opting for open shelves will make your kitchen look larger and will also provide you with space that is unrestricted.
Include a kitchen island
If your kitchen has enough space, you should definitely consider getting an island. Having an island in the kitchen is a great asset as it not only provides extra workspace but it also comes with extra storage that you can use to store away things that you use frequently. Kitchen islands come in varied sizes and can be used as worktops and as breakfast tables too.
Keep it clutter-free
This is something that you must practice religiously to make your kitchen look clean, large and well maintained. Clutter is a real problem in every home, and not getting rid of unwanted things is often the biggest reason why your home may look messy and small. Sticking to a routine and getting rid of waste, not just in the kitchen but in every part of the home will help you make the most of the space that you have.
Now that we have taken care of the most crucial section of the home let us look at some tips that you can use in the rest of the home to save space.
We urge you to choose stackable furniture for your home. If you are a social person, you will understand the challenges you face to accommodate all your guests. This is where stackable furniture comes to your rescue. It could be stackable stools, chairs or even side tables- having these handy will help you add more furniture to your home when needed. As these are very easy to store, they can be stored away when not needed, thus making the most of your spaces.
Adjustable furniture, another essential in today's times, is a great addition to every home. Items like sofa cum bed, expandable dining tables etc are great and help you optimize and make the best use of the space that you have. You can find many options that come in varied qualities, sizes and prices.
Choose wall storage
Having storage that occupies floor space is a big no if you are looking to optimize spaces. Wall-mounted shelves, hanging temporary racks etc. are your best options if you are looking to make your home look large and spacious. Replace that chunky shoe stand with a hanging shoe rack, choose wall shelves instead of a chest of drawers as they not only take up less space but are easy to assemble and dismantle too.
Choose minimal decor
You may have experienced a sense of suffocation or anxiety in rooms that are full of textures, rich colours and too many patterns. Another trick to optimize the space in your home is to go for minimal decor. Usage of a single colour- ideally a light shade with similar or same coloured upholstery creates an illusion of spaciousness. You could pepper this simple look with a splash of colour, but maintaining a single tone in your interiors can do wonders to your space.
You do not have to burn a hole in your pocket to make your home look good and airy. We hope that these simple tips will help you make the most of the space you have in your home.
