1. Paint small rooms in soft and lighter colours to make a room larger

The living room below is a good example of how you can maximise your living space. With huge windows and light coloured walls, it is able to reflect natural light into your home, making the room seems larger than it is. On the other hand, dark colours will make a room feel smaller. Even with natural light and mirrors, a room with dark colours will have a more boxed-in feel.

2. Use decorative mirrors to add light into your home

Mirrors can be used to make a small space feels bigger. For rooms with a limited amount of natural light, you can place mirrors directly across windows. Reflected light will automatically shine into space and add dimension to your home. Furthermore, decorative mirrors can also be used as a home decor to fill up an empty wall.

3. Add a hanging pot holder in your kitchen

A kitchen is a place where it is supposed to be inviting and warm. We spent most of our time in the kitchen, either whipping up a meal, getting food ready for a party or serving dinner.  A hanging pot in a kitchen is able to add nature and purity to your home. Furthermore, it can be seen as a decorative item to make your kitchen look greener and better.

4. Use area rugs to soften hardwood floors.

Rugs give warmth and add texture and style to your living abode. Hardwood floors may be easy to maintain but they lack comfort in comparison to carpeted floors. Adding area rugs can add fun and personality to your space. There are many different types of rugs ranging from pattern rugs, solid colour rugs to fabric rugs. To add on, you can even get washable cotton rugs which are an ideal choice for homes with young kids.
