When it comes to decorating our homes and coming up with the perfect interior design, the size of the space you will be working in is something to consider. Depending on whether or not you have a lot of space determines the amount of decor you can get so that nothing looks crowded. You also don’t want to have a situation where you didn’t get enough decor and your space looks too spacious. To make sure that the design you come up with perfectly fits within the confines of your living space and looks amazing, we have mapped out six different tips to use when decorating for a small home.

6 Decorating Tips For A Tiny Home

Think Multipurpose

With limited space, you will need to think smart with the furniture and furnishing you plan on buying with your tiny home. The best route to take is to have every item in your smaller home serve dual functions because you will have multipurpose items that also assist with the overall decor. A great example of a dual-purpose item is buying an adorable small trunk to place on a bookcase that can hold candles, office supplies, medicine, etc. You should also look into benches, beds, or tables that double as a storage container or cabinet.

Be Selective

While there are tons of different kinds of decorations out there, multipurpose or not, you will want to make sure that you are selective when it comes to decorating a small space. Make sure each piece

you choose has the impact you want without adding clutter to your home. The same goes with items you already have; you have to be selective. Keeping items out of guilt is the first step to clutter so make sure you go through all your old items and truly let go of items you no longer need.

Using Versatile Pieces

Just like how you will want to have multipurpose items to add to your decor, finding versatile pieces are perfect to assist with your minimalism living in your tiny home. Start off by finding wall art or tapestries that have a different design on both sides. That way if you feel like changing things up, you don’t have to buy anything new. Some kitchen items you can use that are versatile is switching out tile art in a frame to freshen the look or to change with the seasons. Look into rubber mats with carpet centers that can be swapped out to fully embrace a season change without getting a new mat.

Go Big

The intriguing thing about decorating smaller spaces is the illusion of space. You would think that in a smaller space having several small items, to fix the room size, would be nice. However, you are better off having one large item accompanied by smaller items creates a better look rather than several smaller items grouped together. The look is a much cleaner and chic look and the large item can be a multipurpose item.

Embrace The Light 

The downside to having a smaller living space is that you will not be exposed natural light as you will have fewer windows. For the windows that you do have, make sure that they are not being blocked by furniture or bulky window treatments so the natural light can flow into your home. In addition, you can also counter the dark with light colors in your interior design to brighten your space. Adding soft textures, and sand to white wallpaper is a great way to start. You should also help brighten up your room by adding a good amount of lighting options to your room using LED bulbs as they shine brighter while using lower amounts of energy.

 

Wall Space

The best thing you can do with tiny home decorating and overall interior designing is optimally using your wall space. With less space to work with, you will be looking for ways to hold all of your belongings together while also making your space your own and proper wall space decorating is your best bet. Just like we have been mentioning with every tip, take advantage of these ideas but doing so in a way as to not over clutter your home. Invest in hooks for your shopping bags, umbrellas, and coats, add shelving that holds baskets for items such as gloves and hats and use wall mounts to hang plants to add character in your room. You can use the wall space in your kitchen as well and save space in the cabinets by hanging your pots and pans.
