4 Hacks to Maximise Space in a Small Home

Issue: Mar 2019



In Singapore, space constraints are something most of us face in our homes. Hence, it’s important to make full use of every single square meter available. Here are some tips to help you comfortably settle into a small living space without feeling too claustrophobic.

Interior design to create space

One cost effective way to make your house feel bigger is by implementing small “optical illusions” throughout your flat. For example, using a neutral colour like beige to paint your walls will trick the eye into thinking that the room is more spacious than it actually is. This is because the colour will reflect light, causing the walls to visually recede. Another way to achieve this effect is through mirrors. By having decorative mirrors in your living room, the space will seem larger and airier.

Clean up and de-clutter

Do you want your house to be more spacious? Take the first step by going through your belongings and throwing out the things you don’t need. This will help to reduce the amount of unnecessary items hogging up precious space. Next, sort what’s remaining into different categories to make it easier to keep track of what you already have, ensuring that you do not re-purchase any items. Though it may be tiring, this method will definitely reduce the amount of clutter in your house.

Furniture that doubles up

Consider purchasing multi-function furniture instead. Examples of this are sofas that can be converted into beds as well as seats that can be converted into storage boxes. This will help you reduce the total amount of furniture in the house, freeing up a lot of space. You can also opt for furnishings that are specifically made to be space efficient, such as pull-out and double decker beds.

Get extra space with self-storage
