A nook is an element that can be found in the wall of both small and large rooms. If you have a nook in a small room, use it to your advantage by turning it into a functional space. A smaller nook that does not reach the floor can be used as a shelf for displaying or storing items. Converesly, if the nook is big enough, turn it into a workstation by placing a small desk in it.
Do not think of your small bedroom as a place of limited space. Instead, think of it as your cozy retreat. Start with a bed next to the window with a small pendant light above it, and place a curtain in front of the bed for privacy. Drawers under the bed create additional storage solutions, and a small glass wall between your bed and bathroom creates more visual space. In conclusion, finish it off with a bright color scheme of white, pink and green.
Built-in shelving is another element that can work in most spaces. In fact, it can be a lifesaver in small rooms such as your home office or living room. It gives you a place to store books, electronics and decorative pieces. You can even install built-in shelves that include drawers for additional storage. The best part is it gives you more floor space, which can be used for a desk, chair or just movement.
If you’re living in a one-bedroom apartment, an open concept is the perfect layout for you. It makes you feel as if you’re living in one big space rather than several small rooms. Use continued flooring or a large rug to make the space feel bigger, or you can use continued flooring with small rugs to create zones. If you want to create a combined living and dining space, the open concept could work for this layout.
Why choose between a bathtub or shower for your small bathroom when you can have both? All you need to do is install a shower head above the bathtub to create a combined tub and shower. You are going to use a shower curtain instead of a shower door, but a clear shower curtain helps to create more visual space. If you want to create more floor space, you can always opt for a wall-mounted toilet or sink. Another idea is to use a large mirror to make the space feel bigger.
Whether you’re using a nook, built-in storage or bright colors, the right elements and a little imagination can create a design that works in most spaces.
