Even big houses can start feeling small and look dark and closed in when they are not correctly structured and designed.
The key to solving this problem is knowing how to optimise the space available, choosing the right furniture and implementing simple visual techniques that will transform the look of your home.
We are aware that it is a challenging task, full of uncertainties and doubts, even for professionals. For this reason, we bring you a few tips you will find helpful about how to optimise space in your home, whatever its size.
If your living room is spacious and your furniture is dispersed around the space, then you should consider creating a focal point that brings order and separates the different areas of the room. For instance, you can put the fireplace in the very centre of the living room, giving an elegant and modern touch to the place. Moreover, it will create a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy good company or unwind from a busy day.
Similarly, selecting the right type of stairs can make a big difference in the look and feel of your property. Then choose wide steps to enlarge the room optically, creating varying heights throughout the interior. By doing this, you will be able to divide the different areas without having to put walls in between, which improves fluidity and maximise the luminosity of the house.
Establishing a deep connection between indoors and outdoors can make your home feel roomier and light-filled. How can you do that? Using sliding doors, covered porches and generous windows, as shown in the image above these lines.
Bathrooms are usually the smallest rooms in the house. Therefore, it is imperative to utilise every inch of available space within this room. In this sense, we recommend you create a custom wall-to-wall vanity unit that fits your style and space. This way, you will increase the storage space and simplify the layout of your design effectively, incorporating a minimalist and fresh style.
Lastly, we present you another fundamental element to take into account when designing the bathroom: the walk-in shower. This attractive and celebrated feature reduces to a minimum the visual intrusion, recreating the look and feel of a luxury spa by replacing the shower tray with a tiled floor that converges into a linear drain. So what are you waiting for to live this relaxing experience?
