DIY TINY HOUSE INTERIOR
In small spaces, it all comes to making the most out of what you’ve got. Tiny houses are the perfect example of a multifunctional space that can reflect your personality, without you having to give up on some of your ideas.
When it comes to decorating your tiny, intimate home, it’s all about making the space appear light, spacious and bigger than it is and to still manage to keep that very thing that makes it your home. Since you’re working in a tight space with not that many options, you should start with carefully and diligently defining what it is exactly that you need. Defining the purpose of a room before starting on the design is something you should always do, since not all rooms require the same approach, lighting and other features.
Wasted space is usually a characteristic of much bigger homes with plenty of room to spare. In tiny homes, you will rarely encounter wasted space, because here, every inch matters. When it comes to making the most out of the space you have, there are plenty of ideas available. For example, a built-in closet is a MUST in tiny homes, as it can offer a large storage space without taking a lot of space.
One of the most important things to consider when it comes to decorating your tiny home are the colors you surround yourself with. Generally speaking, you are looking for soft, light colors that will make your living space appear bigger. You can choose a rich, neutral color for your walls, which will have a soothing effect. You can also add some colorful trinkets that will liven up the place. That way, you’re creating an illusion of a larger space that will still incorporate your personality.
Living in a smaller space means you own fewer things, which then means redecorating is limited to the possessions you already have. However, making grand, structural changes is something to be thought through. Many tiny homeowners do all the grunt work themselves, thereby limiting their expenses and learning something new. However, to make sure you’re headed in the right direction, arrange a consultation with an architect or use online programs to same money and have even more fun in creating amazing DIY room sketches for your tiny home.
