You want to maximize things, maximize potentials, and maximize experiences. In the physical world, one thing you should give attention to is maximizing your room space at home. These are some suggestions on how to maximize the space optimally.
Know What You Need
A small space makes you think and prioritize the must-haves. You must take time to filter what you have and what you need. A new thing should replace another instead of filling the room with everything you have.
Display Above Eye Level
You should place art pieces and other framed pieces as high as possible. These pieces displayed above the eye level gives the illusion of a tall ceiling. Aside from those pieces, you can have hanging cabinets in your kitchen. Instead of large counters, these cabinets help you organize and store your kitchen equipment while consuming little space and making the room innovative. Another thing you can install is overhead ceiling racks for recreation equipment and luggage.
Colors to Differentiate
You can create your desired monochromatic palette to establish three or more distinct areas. The differences between colors help the eye delineate the spaces and focus more on one area at a time. For example, wood with orange shades highlights your home entrance and the living room seats are color green. Aside from the space advantage, this monochromatic scheme promotes unity and harmony within the room.
Full-size and Multi-purpose Furniture
Small-sized furniture tends to send the message that the room is small. On the other hand, larger furnishings can create the illusion that the place is more prominent than it is. Aside from the space-maximizing effect, full-size furniture helps hide wires, cable box, and other possible clutter.
It is also good to invest in furniture that has more than one purpose. There are new furniture designs that combine a bed and cabinet, cabinet and chairs, couches and tables, mirror and ironing board among others.
Vertical over Horizontal
To maximize empty vertical space, opt to choose vertical types of furniture that can store and display more things at once. A vertical cabinet, vertical bathroom bin, vertical bulletin board, and to-do lists, and vertical pattern using hanging containers would make your space larger.
Open Up the Rooms
The convention is to separate rooms by putting walls between them. However, a flowing space visual makes the room and house more spacious. The living room can be a combined living, dining, and kitchen room.
