5 ideas for your little condo to make it bigger

April 2015

1. WELL SET PROPORTIONS
When you landscape a small condo, you must first minimize the amount of furniture and maximize the dimensions. The key is to have sufficient traffic areas. Too small furniture gives the impression of being stuck, while a cabinet of a proper size for your space rather produce an effect size. Use the squarest footage possible with a minimum of elements. Be minimalist.

2. MAXIMIZE STORAGE
To keep your space clean, we must organize storage. Each object that you own must have its place in which to be stored; do not overload the visible surfaces. One can think that furniture “built-in” is too massive to be in that kind of room. Rather, it brings together all the storage in one place, eliminating a variety of furniture and clears the rest of the space. With a predominantly closed storage from ceiling to floor, you will come to create a scale effect.

 

 


3. PRACTICAL SIDE
Make sure that each item that is in the condo has a function. Furniture that is useless, unnecessary can clutter your space. A piece of furniture with multple functions is the best way to purify your interior and make it comfortable to live. For example a coffee table that serves as both storage and work surface; one piece can provides three functions. This is another way of minimizing the amount of furniture, as mentioned just above.

4. A PROPER COLOUR
Choose a light color for more brightness and luminosity; avoid cutting colors from one wall to the other (As mentioned in the design tip, coloring in March 2015). Uniform coloration avoids the shrinkage effect.

 

 

 


5. DECORATION
As each element considered when landscape of small spaces, decoration of a room also plays a role. If you don’t already know, the mirrors provide a size effect. Not only do they give the impression of double the size of a room, but they reflect all the light sources in the vicinity; they multiply light. A well lit room is a room that breathes.
