The single biggest problem for an interior designer is definitely related to organizing and managing spaces.
Especially when very small, it could be highly complicated to fit in a variety of objects and pieces of furniture in your specific space but hey, if there’s one thing which interior designers are paid to do well, that’d be improvising.
Let’s analyse some tips which could be very useful when dealing with small spaces.
Number One: Remove Bulky Stuff When Possible
The key to space optimisation is indeed understanding the space itself. If you’re renovating a small bedroom, for example, you must keep in mind how a considerable part of that very room will be dedicated to the bed itself, therefore keeping this in mind is mandatory.
By deeply understanding the small space you’re going to renovate or design from scratch (if that’s the case) you will also be able to properly identify whether your furniture/accessories/lighting eventually will fit in the room itself.
Number Two: Plan Your Colour Pallett
Deciding which colours are likely to work or not in your small room (especially if it’s a bathroom) it’s very, very important.
For example, if you’re planning a patterned ceiling (or statement ceiling) to go well with your designer furniture, you should keep in mind a variety of colouring patterns and trends, as many of these are relying on wooden or soft colour-based ones.
Planning a colour pallet is mandatory for every designer who’s working with small places and budgets, eventually.
Number Three: Minimalism Is The Key
Big lesson for all the interior designers out there: a small space can actually be planned to make it look bigger than what it actually is.
Avoid using big pieces of furniture, complex statues etc, if you’re just renovating a tiny bedroom. Keeping in mind the classic minimalistic designs which are used in the Japanese culture (which isn’t necessarily feng shui) could be the starting point in better understanding my statement above, but you get the idea: the less is more.
When it comes to renovating a small, tiny place, there are a lot of different variables which must be taken into consideration.
With examples ranging from budgeting to colours to the actual space, renovating a tiny room could be heaven or hell really, with no middle ground.
Keeping those in mind (especially the minimalism-related part) could definitely help you out. Good luck with your renovation!
