1. Wall of memory

It’s a beautiful way to keep the memories alive, the wall of memory. Instead of hanging painting on the expensive space, decorate it with family pictures. Use the lower half of the wall for cabinet. It is a smart utilization of space, especially the one in the hallway which otherwise goes waste.

​2. Niches on the wall

Artifacts, travel memorabilia, cherished gifts… there are lots of thing that you want to exhibit in your home to add to its beauty quotient. If the home is small, create niches on the wall so that it doesn’t occupy extra space of your home. Or you may like to combine it with a few open shelves just like here.

​3. Window magic

​4. Beauty with a purpose

What if the beautiful closet is more than just another closet? Think out of the box and give that beautiful closet other role to play apart from its predefined role to keep the space clean and organized. Or take a clue from here and design the one for your home. Sit elegantly while tying your shoes now.

​5. Attractive delusion

An attractive illusion created by the designer tiles will distract the mind from feeling the size of the space. Use shower door made of glass instead of shower curtains; it will make the bathroom feel roomy.

​6. Integrating the space

Don’t overdo the décor, not even the ceiling. Heavy false ceiling will make the room look smaller. Just keep it simple and sober. If you want decorate it with simple wooden panels and then opt for simple lampshade instead of heavy chandelier.

9. Colour it right

Light subtle shades make the room feel bigger, lighter and airy. Select a single colour for the walls and mix it with its own variation for furniture and furnishing. Throw in some colour in the cushion covers, carpet or may be a statue like it is done here.

​10. The vertical green

Nothing can decorate your home beautifully than a splash of greens. If the space is small go green vertically. There are lots of options available of the vertical garden in the market. Just go for it!
