Interiors for Small Places

Whether you have an apartment, duplex or house, if you're limited on space and looking for clever ideas to make the most of your available room, take a look at our inspired interior design ideas for small places.

Smart kitchen storage

While wall storage is often a popular installation in cramped kitchens, open storage shelves are a unique and eye-catching design concept that offer the same efficient solution. There are numerous benefits to installing open storage: firstly, they bring aesthetic appeal by allowing you to showcase your favourite glasses and crockery. Also, they enable you to easily access regularly used items. The last is a no-brainer: they create much needed additional storage space. Open storage is also a great way to separate a room into two functional spaces.

Workstation or office nook

If you have a small bedroom, don't waste any available space! It's easy to turn the nook between a closet and the wall or another closet into a workstation. Building the desk directly into the wall not only saves you money but ensures that it fits the space perfectly. You can even add shelves above the desk to store books, stationery and other prized possessions.

Bathroom storage essentials

Stylish and functional, narrow shelves are the ultimate accessory for your bathroom. This type of shelving is ideal for storing and accessing all of your toiletries and you can also purchase glass canisters for your cotton swabs and lotions. These accessories will complement the space, making it more visually appealing.

Creative multipurpose space

Multi-purpose space is often unavoidable when you have a small place, but you can be creative with the design to make it look ultra-modern and uncluttered. If you have a home office that doubles as a guest bedroom, you can have a concealed bed attached to the desk which can be pulled out when guests come round.

Light it up

For rooms with limited space, when choosing colour concepts it's best to stick to light colours. Light colour tones make rooms appear larger and more open, while also freshening up the space.

Placement of furniture

Often where you place furniture in a room can create the illusion of a bigger space. For example moving a dining table from the middle of the room towards one wall, as we can see in the image, makes the room feel larger and enables people to move through the room more easily.

Well chosen furniture and artwork

Well chosen furniture can also make a room feel larger. For example, an L shaped sofa creates more space to sit while taking up very little extra space in the room. Large artworks carefully positioned can also create the illusion of a bigger room. Just as horizontal stripes can make a room feel lower, tall artworks will create the illusion of higher ceilings.

Curtain dividers for separating space

Incorporating a sheer curtain to divide two spaces enhances the design concept of a room and effectively creates different living areas. It also adds a touch of drama and class.

Storage solutions beneath stairs

There are numerous ways you can utilise space underneath stairs as additional storage. A specially-designed storage unit can be placed directly below the stairs, taking advantage of the awkward triangular space. You can also install shelves above the storage unit and turn this area into a stylish and contemporary mini bar for entertaining guests.

Add dimension with a mirror

A well-known trick in the interior design world is adding a full body mirror to create the illusion of additional space. If you add neutral draperies surrounding the mirror, you have the option of leaving these open to add dimension to the room or closing these to hide the mirror when you want a more intimate, enclosed space.
