Incredibly Simple Ideas To Add Elegance To Small Spaces

You want to give the house a fresh air but don’t have the budget for a full redecoration? We’ll let you in on a small tip: you don’t have to invest a lot of money to achieve an elegant look. You just have to identify those spaces that are forgotten and work with them.

What do I mean with forgotten spaces? Well, these are spaces we don’t usually include in the grand interior design. For instance, the space under the staircase or that long hallway at the entrance; all these (and more) are spaces that could be changed and used to liven up the atmosphere.

To give you a head start, we’ll discuss a few incredibly simple ideas that not only will bring new life to your home but will also create more storage space. So, let’s see a few ideas that (we hope) will amaze you.


The First Step: Choosing The Right Colors

When you deal with such small spaces, you must select the correct colors. Otherwise, the result may not be as aesthetically pleasing as you might think. To help you out, here are a few useful tips to consider.

Today’s specialists recommend using powerful colors that attract the eye and create both space and style. However, if you don’t feel ready for this, you can start small. For instance, you can start with changing the wall color under the stairs – to see how it goes.

The Second Step: Identifying Forgotten Spaces

Space Under The Stairs

Starting with Harry Potter’s bedroom and ending with a home office, the space under the stairs has a lot of uses. You just have to know how to use it.

First, it can be an amazing space for storing things. For instance, you can put together a great wine case or (if you’re not into wine that much) a bookcase. The possibilities are limitless as long as you use your sense of design, and you decorate the space with grace.

The Home Office

The room where we discuss family affairs or where you run side projects. However, even if it may remind you of work, this space should not be forgotten. An elegant home office with subtle touches of luxury and great organization can be inspiring.

The best part is that you don’t need an entire room for this area. You just need to make sure the office space is well-delimited. You can do this with several elegant room separators or by using a small area that is already delimited (a corner or the space under a window).

The Laundry Room

Who would ever think about adding a touch of style in the laundry room? It’s just a place where you squeeze a few machines and hope for the best. But things don’t have to be this way: this room has great potential!

For instance, you can use powerful colors and, if you love organized spaces, here is where you can go nuts. For instance, the space behind the door is amazing for hanging things. Also, the space above the washer can be organized by adding shelves and creating areas for towels, detergents, other cleaning products, and so on.

The Kitchen

Why the kitchen? Because here too you’ll find tons of small spaces that can have a better use. For instance, the space above the sink – if you don’t have a window, you can easily add shelves where to store all sorts of small things.

You can also create a nice area where to hang all the pans and other tools right between the counter top and the cabinets on the wall. There are a plethora of gorgeous kitchen design ideas on a budget, and all you have to do is look for them.

With a bit of imagination and some effort, your home could look amazing! There is no need to invest a ton of money on redecorations to create a cozy atmosphere; you just need to use all the spaces correctly.
