In theory, bringing a concept to life would go off without so much as a hitch, and you would enjoy the beautiful space you have put together! In practice, however, there are several elements that may get in the way of accomplishing this goal. One such example that comes to mind includes working with a limited amount of space, as this has been found to be a common source of design distress. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX interior designers discuss some tips and tricks that you can pursue to help enhance a limited space, as well as how our team can help.
Playing With Contrast
There is something empowering about visualizing a concept and being able to bring it to life before your very eyes. Whether it be the result of painting, sculpting, sewing, or even interior designing, that is the beauty of art. Sometimes, however, we are presented with creative barriers to design that prevent us from interpreting our vision in the most realistic manner we can. As a result, we must find ways to work around them.
One such barrier to design involves a limited or finite amount of space. Fortunately, there are tactics and practices that can be used to help make the most of the limited space. For instance, playing with contrast can bring dimension to your space, making it appear larger or smaller, depending on your design.
Indeed, contrast is an excellent, low-budget way to make your space appear more open and less boxed-in. When used in conjunction with colors, patterns, and other elements, you can really work wonders in your room. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, give our office a call today.
Consider Subtle Storage Options
In addition to playing with contrast in your design, subtle storage options are an excellent way to make the most of a space with limited area. Take, for example, a small kitchen. One might optimize space by installing cabinets that extend forward when opened, revealing much more storage space than is presented.
Another example of subtle storage might include a child’s bedroom whose bedframe doubles as cabinet storage. Contact our team to learn more about maximizing a limited space in your design.
Do Not Box Yourself In
Finally, but most certainly not least, it is important you do not box yourself in. It can become easy to hug walls with bookshelves, furniture, desks, and more, but the more wall space you occupy, the smaller the room will feel. Moreover, if most walls are covered with looming furniture, it can quickly cause a person to feel trapped.
