Tips will make your narrow house wider
What kind of design will suit your tiny house? Check out the info below.
1. Selection of furniture
Choose tables, sofas, and chairs with sleek and sleek designs, in the sense that they don’t have too many ornaments, details, and carvings. Furniture with a simple appearance will make the room look wider and leave room to put other objects on it. Classic themed furniture is also very suitable for a minimalist home. Usually, classic furniture is made of metal, where this material will make a small room seem wider.
Too much furniture will also make your house look fuller and narrower, and limit the space to move. Therefore, choose furniture that is used and which is not. For unused furniture, you can store it in the warehouse or you can resell it. That way, the rooms in your house will look more spacious and wide.
You can create a more spacious and spacious impression in the room of your house by choosing the right color and the match between the color of the wall paint and the color of the furniture. Choose light, neutral paint colors like white, ivory, cream that can go with any color. That way, you can more freely choose the color of the furniture.
3. Installing the wallpaper
A narrow house doesn’t mean it can’t look like a luxury home. Installing wallpaper will make your simple home look more luxurious. Wallpaper with bright colors and simple patterns such as leaves and horizontal lines is the right choice to decorate the walls of a house with limited space. Avoid wallpaper with large and full motifs because it will only make the room look narrower.
4. Carpet without a pattern
If you want to cover the floor of the house using a carpet, you should choose a carpet without a pattern and with solid colors like black. This will make the floor and room of the house appear more spacious and spacious.
5. Selection of accessories
There is nothing wrong with adding decorations to enhance the appearance of the room. But for a narrow house, you have to be smart in choosing the accessories that you will display. Try not to add too many embellishments and avoid embellishments with too many details. For example, when you want to display a painting, choose a painting with a simple and plain frame, without any carvings.
The addition of decorative lights and living flowers in a narrow room can also give a more lively and spacious impression. Flowers will give a fresh impression to the room and are best placed in the corners of the room so as not to limit the space for movement. Meanwhile, for decorative lights, choose lights that emit white light. This white light will give a graceful and peaceful impression to the rooms in your home.
6. Avoid using bulkheads
The use of a divider as a separator between rooms will only give the impression of being narrower. If it is necessary to use a bulkhead, choose one that is not permanent so that it can be removed at any time. However, we should reduce the use of bulkheads if not needed. With a narrow house, the living room and family room do not need to be partitioned, because basically, the function of the two rooms is as a place to gather and chat. The same is true of the kitchen and dining room.
7. Wall shelves or terraced
Instead of using ordinary cabinets to store objects such as displays, bags, and books, it is better to use wall shelves or multi-story shelves. These two types of shelves certainly don’t take up as much space like a cupboard. In addition to saving space, wall shelves and multi-story shelves tend to be easier to move so you can easily move them when needed.
8. Adding a mirror
The addition of a large mirror will have a wider effect on the narrow room of your house. With the reflection from the mirror, the room will appear as if it is twice as large as it is. You can add mirrors throughout the house, from the living room, family room to the bedroom.
