Making the most out of a small space is getting to know the small space hacks that will allow you to maximise space as well as utility. The most common and popular advise is to always go for light colors if your living space is small. But there are few other space hacks for a great living space –

#1 Use the Walls

If you’ve got ceiling height, take advantage of it with lofted designs that lift beds, storage or work spaces, freeing up room on the floor. Also get wall shelves, cabinets and foldable tables that will all you to free up the floor. A wall shelf installed at just the right height next to your bed is simple, cheap and effective. Hinges and hooks attach what appears to be a picture frame to the wall, but unfolds into a table.

#2 Make Magnets your friends

Use a Magnet strip attached to the wall to hold up your jewellery, or knives and such utensils in your kitchens to keep your surfaces clutter free which gives the illusion of a larger space.

#3 Lighting is Key

Keep your windows large, and curtains light for a open lighted space that allows more light to penetrate and gives the illusion of a grander, larger space.Avoid heavy curtains and add lots of light fixtures to make your studio feel larger, cleaner and more welcoming Also use mood lighting to take away the focus from the size of the room, and give it a homely and cozy feeling.

#4 Mirrors are Mighty 

Mirrors can instantly double the appearance of a room, but there’s no reason you have to go the traditional route! Use mirrors and wall ornaments with mirrors to throw open the room to give it a boho chic appearance which allows it to look bigger.

#5 Organise Effectively, avoid clutter

Find some storage organisers that look respectable and then start donating all those things you don’t really need. We know you love those piles of throw pillows, but in a small space, decoration displays can start feeling chaotic. To avoid the clutter, choose one distinctive piece to display or make a grouping of all one colour or shape.
