Tips to renovate a smaller home for a more spacious living experience
Planning a renovation for a smaller home might be a little bit tricky at first, especially if someone is hoping to renovate to create a living space that appears more spacious than it is. However, with the right approach to the project, it’s possible to achieve the desired results.
Below, we have listed some practical ways to transform a small home into a spacious place. Focusing on these details while renovating will help achieve the ideal spacious results.
Install internal double doors
Internal double doors come in an assortment of different designs and colours. And someone might be thinking their smaller home doesn’t have the space for such an installation.
Although, installing double doors is an effective way to separate a room without making the space seem cramped. Because double doors can make a space appear larger than what is it, it will be possible to separate two areas while holding onto an open plan design.
Opt for a darker kitchen area
Someone might be thinking that light and bright kitchen area designs are the best options for a small home, although this is a common misconception. On the contrary, darker kitchen areas tend to appear larger and more spacious than they are.
So, consider black tiling, dark tone cabinets, and be sure to consider other means of saving space in this area of home. It’s possible install more wall cabinets and shelving to hide appliances and keep counters free of the appearance of clutter. Furthermore, it’s also possible to invest in multifunctional kitchen appliances to save more space.
Install a corner bathtub
Corner bathtubs are pretty spacious and indulgent types of tubs. Although they are more than just that, a corner bathtub can ensure a bathroom seems far more spacious.
Suppose a bathroom has a bathtub and a shower; removing both and adding a corner bathtub will leave with much more space. For someone enjoying the occasional shower, there is also the option to consider a corner bathtub with a shower overhead and glass doors or shower curtains.
Rip out carpeting for larger tiles
The carpeting might be comfortable and assist massively with warming a home’s interior. However, carpeting generally tends to make small spaces seem even smaller. And the same is true when it comes to smaller tile sizes.
To make a home seem more extensive, consider bigger sized tiling; the bigger the tile, the larger the space will appear. And with that said, if someone still adores carpeting for comfort and warmth, it’s always possible purchase a few area rugs to decorate a home.
The finishing touches
Once a renovation project is complete, it’s possible to switch up your decor to compliment the home’s new appeal. And there are tons of home decor ideas to brighten up a home.
While there are tons of great options out there, it’s advised decorate with a minimalistic approach; too much decor can give the appearance of a cluttered space. So, whichever interior theme someone goes for, be sure to keep the number of decor items minimal.
