6. WALL MOUNTED LIGHTS

Again, when it comes to serious small house interior design, every inch matters, so make the most use of your space with wall-mounted extras and lighting to free up space on tabletops while setting a mood with smartly placed lighting fixtures on your walls for added drama.

7. BUILT-IN SEATING WITH EXTRA STORAGE

Another genius small house interior design hack is to have built-ins lining walls that double as concealed storage areas as together they’ll take up less space while lending your home the feel of endless upgraded amenities.

Imagine if the kitchen featured above had its table and chairs situated in the middle of the room – now, wouldn’t the room come off as much smaller, more cramped, and worst of all, badly styled?

8. KEEP FURNITURE AWAY FROM WALLS

One of the easiest small apartment ideas to manage is to keep all furnishings drifting towards the middle of a room rather than against walls as the space will come off as cramped and uncomfortable for no good reason.

9. KEEP IT COZY

When it comes to small apartment ideas, keeping the space cozy should be a no-brainer. But then again, you’d be surprised at clients who think they can go for rigid and grand in a compromising space.

And since you can’t make that kind of magic happen without severe compromises, be realistic with your approach and do create cozy nooks to make your space feel like an inviting home.

10. USE STORAGE WISELY

Lastly, making good use of the storage space you’ve got is of course, essential. Space is at a premium in the kitchen area (ask any interior designer); there are loads of interior design hacks for kitchen cupboards out there, which help to make the best use of the space you have.

Easy to replicate, consider hanging cups and utensils on the walls and create as much functional shelving throughout as possible. Think storage compartments which slide out from built-in cabinets, desks which fold up into a storage unit, Murphy beds that drop down from the wall and tables and chairs that serve dual purposes. The possibilities are endless when it comes to small space interior design; you simply need to carefully plan accordingly and keep your mind open to what can be done within the small space.
