If you have a small home that you want to make super stylish, don’t think that your limited floor space has to be a factor. Interior designers are constantly turning petite homes into paradigms of contemporary style and chic, so we’ve taken a look at how they do it in order to share the secrets with you today.
From hallways to bedrooms, we’ve got tips for every room in your home so, if you’re ready to plan a modern overhaul, let’s see how the professionals do it.
1. Draw up a scale plan before you start.
You need to know exactly what space you have to work with so sketch out every room to show the shape and size before you plan or buy anything.
2. Consider using earth tones
More pared back and neutral earth tones have a knack for making small spaces seem much bigger and they always look contemporary.
3. Use mirrors and art to good effect
We all know that a large mirror will add to the perceived size of a small room, but also add some art to up your modern home furnishing game. Together, mirrors and art are an auspicious pair!
4.Choose punchy accent colours
If you want to add in some colour to your modern masterpiece of a home, choose bright, vivid shades that will draw the eye. If people are looking at a yellow chair, they won’t be calculating the square meterage of the room!
5. Make a splash with your hallway
In a small home every space counts towards making a good impression and, as the first point of contact, your hallway needs to be exemplar. This is a good location for some extra art, mirrors and definitely some flowers!
6. Could you have an indoor garden?
This is a question worth asking, as indoor gardens are hugely popular in modern homes right now. You only need a small segment of space, such as under your stairs, and you could make a big contemporary statement.
7. Don’t overlook your kitchen
A vital part of any home, your kitchen naturally wants to be modern and cutting edge! Brushed metal appliances and industrial tones work well to create a contemporary and functional look.
