With that said, we’ll now share five tiny yet beautiful room ideas with you below. Please use them to make your home look absolutely amazing whenever you see fit. Idea #1: Put Smaller Furniture in Your Home You may not want to face facts, but your large furniture is literally cramping your style at this point in your tiny home. Instead of having a humongous couch or a king-sized bed, it might be time to downsize and get smaller furniture that fits into your tinier place a heck of a lot better. Most people overlook this when they first move into a smaller space. They do not realize that their large furniture is going to take up too much room and they’d be much better off downsizing. But eventually after filling their space with extra-large furniture they realize the error of their ways. Instead of furnishing your apartment with humongous furniture, you should bite the bullet now and sell or donate it and use the proceeds to buy new much smaller furniture for your tinier living space. As an example, let’s say you have a large six person dining table in your current dining room. But now that you’ve downsized to a much smaller apartment, this table and chair set is much too big for your current space. Get rid of it as soon as you can by selling it on Craigslist, eBay, or a different online or off-line publication. And use the money to buy a new table and chair set for your kitchen that’s much smaller than your current option. Idea #2: Use All of Your Surfaces Judiciously for Additional Space Are you typically used to decorating a medium-sized or larger space? When you have all of this additional room, you may not feel the need to utilize each and every one of your surfaces for decorating purposes. But when you live in a tinier space, every surface count and using every inch of your home is the best way to take hidden nooks and crannies and bring them to the forefront. As you search your home for additional decorating space, you may discover surfaces that you hardly even realized were there. A good example of this is displaying your favorite portraits of you, your family, and your friends. Typically speaking, most people will display these items on shelves, cabinets, and even desks. Guess what? Your small space doesn’t have nearly as many of these surfaces as you’re used to so you’ll have to figure out new and exciting ways to display your pictures prominently within the home. So look around for different nooks and crannies hiding within your home. Or even better, put shelving on your walls or hang your pictures directly on them if shelving isn’t going to be an option. Just look at all of your available space and figure out ways to place pictures or hang them up so they display prominently in your home. Idea #3: Use Wall-Mounted Lamps to Replace Desk and Standing Lamps Living in a smaller space means surfaces just aren’t available. So forget about trying to place a large desk lamp on your tiny desk. Get rid of your desk lamp altogether instead. You’re still going to need light, so you can get a wall-mounted lamp to secure to the wall above the desk and have it hang over and provide excellent light for this area. Standing lamps can also be a real nuisance in smaller spaces. They constantly get in the way on the floor and it looks like they are totally cluttering up your place. So take out your standing lamps and replace them with wall-mounted options instead. Or even better, maybe install a ceiling lamp to replace your standing lamps and you’ll have much brighter light and a beautiful chandelier to boot. Idea #4: Remember to Use All of Your Vertical Space Many of us fail to take full advantage of our vertical storage space. This is often a huge mistake because this space is great to use to hang things up and store things when storage is at a premium. So, remember to hang hooks on the backs of doors and inside kitchen cabinets so you can hang up and store many of your great possessions. You can put hooks on the walls in your kitchen to hang up your pots and pans, or if you’re looking for more decorative space, you can always hang beautiful decorations on your walls as well. Idea #5: Large Rugs Make Small Rooms Look Bigger Are you trying to make your small room appear much larger? There are a couple of tricks to make this room look bigger, but today we’d like to mention putting a large rug in a small room. The rug should be neutral yet very big. In fact, we want you to add the biggest rug that you can fit into your tiny space. What’s the purpose? When you fill a small space with a large rug it provides the appearance of making it look much bigger. It’s the truth and the only way you’ll really know is if you give it a try, so we suggest you do so. Final Thoughts Creating a tiny yet beautiful home might seem like a daunting task right now. But it’s definitely possible and our suggestions will help you create the beautiful dream home you’ve always wanted. Don’t worry if your home seems too small now because our suggestions will make it seem larger than life when you’re through implementing them.
