As a young homeowner, you may have imagined a small and cozy space to be your dream home. But as you start living in a small space, it takes no time to transform from a cozy nook into a cluttered and cramped space. You can always keep the place clean and tidy to make it look more spacious. Proper arrangement of furniture in small spaces can also do the job to some extent. But today we are going to talk about a quirky way of making your home look bigger.
Curtains are not only an embellishment for the windows and doors but it is also a great way to create illusion of space in a cozy room. So if you have a studio apartment or a small 1 BHK, use these smart ideas to make the space look bigger.
Carve out a Private Nook
In case you have only one room, that is used as many, like in the studio apartments, there will be a lot of chaos in that single area. This will make the space look even smaller. A creative use of curtains to carve out a private nook for reading or just for a quiet retreat would create an illusion of space. It will add fun to your room as the first look at it will strike the guests with the thought- “What is behind that curtain?”
Place a comfortable accent chair or a two seater couch with a cool rug in front of it. Complement with a small side-table topped with a houseplant or a bunch of your favorite books. A pendent lighting behind the curtain and a few throw pillows will create magic. You can also use the behind wall as a bookshelf. If this nook is by the balcony or a window, the effect would be resplendent.
Smart Storage with Curtains
A huge wardrobe will sure look good in a big home, but in a small studio it covers a lot of space. So is the wardrobe worth it? There are other ways to become the master of organizing using just curtains. Forget shelves, racks and all other forms as they create an illusion of clutter. Or just hide them. Shift all the storage furnishings to one side of the room and place a broad curtain in front of it. So now the clutter is behind the curtains and no visitor has to see it. This is by far the smartest use of curtains in a small home.
Multiple Zoning with Different Curtains
What if your home does not have separate living room, bedroom and guest room. Carve it out with the help of curtains. You have to be very creative to make this move so that the room does not look like a museum of curtains. But don’t just hide everything behind curtains.
Make smart use of these window treatments and make you small home a better place to live in.
