Home Improvement Tips For Small Homes From The Handyman In St. Louis

Urban living is on the rise. As of 2010 more than half of all people live in an urban area. By 2030 it is anticipated that six out of every ten people will be living in a city, according to the World Health Organization. But no matter where you live, you want to make the most of your available living and storage space. A few simple adjustments can help you open up your living spaces to create more room.

The Living Room: Choose furniture that is appropriate for the amount of space available. Measure your space before purchasing furniture. Too large of a couch can cramp a room and make it seem even smaller. I have made this mistake myself.  Avoid sofas with skirts and instead select couches that are raised off the floor. Select coffee and end tables that have an open frame. A strategically placed mirror can create an illusion that your room is much larger than it really is. The same goes for lack of clutter. Keep your small space organized. Remember, less is more!

Storage: Use creative storage solutions to make more space. For example, an ottoman that doubles as a trunk is a great place to store photos and magazines. A jacket rack with a key ring holder in your foyer is a creative way to create space.

The Kitchen: The kitchen is often the heart of the home, particularly if you entertain a lot or like to cook. It can get over crowded with excessive gadgetry rather quickly. Consider highly functional appliances that have multiple uses. For example a built-in microwave that is equipped with inverter technology. This gives the ability to function like an oven and ensures every dish is cooked evenly, while opening up coveted counter space.

The Bathroom: Give the illusion of space by decorating with neutral or pastel colors on the floors and walls. Save the bolder colors for accents on towels or ornamental pieces. When remodeling your bathroom use white floor and wall tile to make it look bigger.

Throughout The House: Ensure you have lighting at floor, table and even eye level to help eliminate shadows. Another trick is to use a tall floor lamp to draw the eyes upward and add height to the room. A small home is no excuse for feeling cramped. With a few interior design strategies in place, you can make even the smallest space feel larger in size.
