Space constraints have made flats very fashionable in India, offering a simplified and minimalist approach. Micro lifestyles have captured the minds of the millennium generation, with creative solutions that transform small spaces into big living spaces while living small. Maximise space so that your flat feels spacious and welcoming. Here we present you with some intelligent solutions that would be ideal for living in small spaces in a flat.
Make your eye think the flat is more spacious by adding calm, uniform colours. A cheerful colour, such as pale turquoise, is a good idea for creating a cheerful atmosphere in a tiny room. Be sure to add a variety of textures to keep the flat interesting.
When space is limited, limit your purchases of new and bulky furniture, such as cabinets and chests of drawers that take up a lot of floor space. Buy only a few large pieces of furniture to make interiors more grandiose. Don’t stack all your furniture against the walls, as the space behind the furniture makes the room look bigger than it is. Be resourceful in using the entire surface, even a window sill, for decoration, lighting and other essentials when there is no room for an extra table.
Opt for the open
Separate rooms with pocket doors with glass windows that allow light to circulate through the space while creating a separation. Even better, they slide directly into the wall when not in use, taking up much less space than swing doors.
Using space on walls
Mirrors give the impression that you have a larger space, lighter and more airy. And a convex mirror to add a lot of personality to interiors. Fix your TV to the wall, because a media console is the biggest waste of space in a small living room. Use the open and closed shelves installed on the walls to remove book shelves and storage units from the floor and walls. You can also opt for a wall-mounted desk, as it takes up much less space and you can even mount shelves above it to save even more storage space.
Try to choose furniture that you can use for multiple purposes. Find a table that can be used as a desk and dining table, get a deep sofa that can be used as an extra bed, or buy cubes that serve as a coffee table and extra seating when guests are around. Buy extra seating that can fold up and be super compact so you can store them while the guests are away.
