A small home does not necessarily mean having to live in confinement. With the increase in rent in many cities, the living space has reduced considerably for a lot of people. But if you get creative, a small space could be made to look bigger with some great ideas which we present to you today. Explore them and make your small home a better place. 

1. Shelves, the saving grace

When space doesn't allow for shelves to be placed at eye level, you take things to the next level by placing them slightly beneath the ceiling. 

2. Straight lines for detail

3. Mirror mirror

Don't let the lack of space be the reason for that frown of yours, turn it upside down as this reflection suggests much more than a small, simple room. 

4. Dual functionality

When time and space align for you to kill two birds with one stone, you jump on that opportunity! Make your dining table and center table one with this nice piece. 

5. Depth with wallpaper

If you're looking to create the illusion of space, then there really is not better option than wallpaper that creates the illusion of space. 

6. Segmentation of the area

One way to keep the area neat and organized, leaving you with enough room to move around is to segment the area with the use of compact furniture. 

7. Multipurpose furniture

Furniture that can act as a sofa in the living room as well a chair in the kitchen is something you can bank on when space constraints you. 

8. Neutral colors

Neutral hues when picked out work with each other in harmony as is seen in this living room. Cream and light brown colors make for the ideal pairing with neutral hued lights as the icing.
