When you live in a small house, it can be tough to find the right kind of tiny home furniture pieces. They should look great, be comfortable, and, most importantly, fit. Furniture has been following a trend where it seems manufacturers want to cram more and more people onto a sofa. Also, they want to take up even more room in your home because it gives a, “Feeling of luxury and extravagance.” That’s just fine for big Whigs who have homes that spread out over several zip codes. But, for those of us who have a small house, this is a real hassle.
Tiny Home Furniture And Appliances: Cover your small space elegantly
But when it comes to furniture, you don’t have to abide by the philosophy of, “Go big, or go home.” Indeed, contrary to what those sales ads might be telling you, tiny home furniture can offer you some advantages. Such are these advantages, both practically and aesthetically, that big furniture can’t even begin to touch.
To help you make that big impact, here are some tricks and tips you can apply to your own tiny home. You’d like to achieve that impact in your design while making sure your furniture fits comfortably within your little walls.
* Use Engaging Colors to Give an Impression of Size.
Even within tiny furniture pieces, from chairs to foot-rugs, there are plenty of beautiful and elegant colors to choose from. Undoubtedly, it is tough to find just the right hue you’re looking for and the colors befitting your base. Yet, it does offer you some opportunities to make your home seem bigger than it is.
When you choose your colors, one thing you can do is use colors that keep your visitors engaged. Moreover, they should also distract them from the fact that they’re occupying a tiny space. Bright, bold shades of red or orange really make a room pop, and they’re both fairly unique as well. Then, your visitors will be so occupied with your cute design that they’ll forget about the small space. You need to be careful, as you can quickly find yourself in the tacky territory if you throw colors together. But, a well-crafted color palette, even in tiny home furniture, can really create an impression of depth.
* Choose an Engaging Centerpiece: A real distraction
Even if something is tiny, if it’s memorable, size won’t matter in the long run. In the same vein, using engaging colors to bring depth to your room, you can also use a unique centerpiece. This may be a tiny one to draw attention away from your bedpost within spitting distance of your living-room sofa.
Your centerpiece can really be anything you choose, but the more unique, the better. Coffee tables and entertainment centers are some common ideas, but you could also use a small painting that you’ve framed on the wall, or array your furniture around the only window in your room. Whatever you choose, you should try to reduce piling a lot of furniture around your centerpiece, since you don’t want it competing for your guests’ attention.
* Spread it Out:
Speaking of piling, when it comes to tiny spaces, one way to increase the perception of depth is your aesthetic approach. Your first priority must be to keep your rooms as empty as possible. This can be tough, depending on how big your family is. Also, it further depends how often you have guests coming over. But, finding that happy medium is key to making a big splash. All this may also hold true even if you have to go with a tuff shed cabin around your community.
Since tiny home furniture doesn’t take up a lot of space anyway, it can really help you in this endeavor. Avoid couches and go for love-seats or recliners instead. You might even consider avoiding a coffee table, and instead, bring in smaller end tables for people to set their glasses and plates on when you’re hosting.
The point is, the more that you can increase the amount of free space in a room, the bigger your room, and home will feel.
