Creating an elegant interior that evokes a sense of grandeur, doesn’t require a huge budget or a huge space. Even with limited cash and small space, there is a lot that you can do to update your home to make it feel a little suaver.
Before you start your redesign, it’s important to have a clear idea of what you want to achieve with your design. To get some ideas to search for blogs online, read interior design magazines, go to showrooms or browse furniture stores to find some inspiration for your new space. With a clear idea of what you want to do, you can start taking steps towards making your vision become reality.
Let’s take a look at some useful tips to help you to create a more elegant living space in a smaller home.
Focus On Lighting
To set the mood in your newly designed space, you need to ensure that you have the right lighting. Soft ambient lighting is a great choice. You can use candles, accent lighting and lamps to create the right atmosphere in your room. Experiment with different options to find a solution that works best for your space.
Hang A Large Mirror
A large, ornate mirror will instantly make your space feel a little more luxurious. Not only that but hanging a mirror in a smaller space is the perfect way to make it feel brighter, more spacious and more welcoming when you have guests around.
If you want your apartment to look classy and ooze elegance, you need to ensure that you bring all of the design elements together in a cohesive finish. Matching different elements in your home will help to create a consistent finish that will help your home to look a little more glamorous.
Add Some Plant Life
Plants are a great way to add some life to your space and provide some much-needed contrast to neutral tones. Having plants in your home adds a little touch of class with the added advantage of improving air quality and making you feel more relaxed too.
Choose The Right Rug
Adding a well-chosen rug to a smaller space can really help to elevate the space. Make sure that you choose a rug that covers most of the space so that all of the furniture sits neatly on it. A small rug in a small space is never a good idea, so be sure to splash out for some size.
Select The Right Furniture
Choosing furniture that fits the space and flows with the design will help your space to look more sophisticated. If you are working with a narrow space, choose narrow furniture. If it’s a boxy room, choose smaller pieces. Selecting furniture that fits the space well will help the interior to look more stylish and less cramped or squashed. With the right fit-out, your space will feel more welcoming, cosy and comfortable.
