Space is a luxury that not everyone has. This is a common obstacle and difficult that many living in large and populated cities must manage. For some, the solution to this is a tiny house, to provide them the necessities of their lives but without the expense and financial burden of owning a full-sized home. Still, even with a small space, you want to incorporate a sense of luxury, and here are a few ways to do so.
For many tiny homes, space is a commodity. You appreciate what little space you have, and the best way to do this is through the utilization of multifunctioning and multidimensional furniture. The interior of your home may be small, but that does not mean you need to skip on your necessities. Your furniture will need to be flexible and require the ability to adapt as much as you do as a person living in a smaller space. This can be a variety of design choices, like pull out tabletops and counters, to stow away chairs and sofas. Because every bit of your home needs to be maximized, you have to consider all your storage options and how your furniture will move, fold, or tuck away when not in use.
Similar to the point above, if you are looking to create a sense of luxury in your small living space, do so with additions and changes that provide quality to your home. Flooring can be a way to provide the aesthetic and functional look and feel that you are going for. Installing luxury vinyl planks gives your home a clean look, and you can top that with a small area rug. This is a small touch but really brings the attention down to every detail of care you put into your home. Living in a small house also means you won’t be spending quite as much with less area to have to account for.
Quality Over Quantity
The great thing about living in a smaller space is that you have to prioritize what you keep in your home. You cannot simply fill it with clutter because space is such an important commodity. This translates to not just the things that you can potentially accumulate but also the quality of the material that is used for the construction of things like furniture and housing. With a smaller home, what might have been more financially burdening purchases like expensive countertops would cost a fraction of the price when purchasing for the use in a smaller home. This is a direct result of needing significantly less, and what you save in quantity of the material purchase, you can put into the quality of the goods. It is okay to splurge a bit on these things to give your smaller home higher value.
Windows And Lights
One important way to help you increase the feel of your home to be more luxurious is by letting in more light. This helps accentuate the space of your home through more natural means. Windows are perfect to utilize during the days and can help make a small space feel infinitely larger. Lights are important as well, as they can help set a mood for your home. Good lighting also makes space feel bigger, as corners are not as dark, maximizing your visual field. This can be accomplished with the right bulbs and window installations and will result in your home feel bigger and ultimately more luxurious than it is.
Space is a commodity of high value. Unfortunately, your homes don’t always come with the most space to work with. For those that live in tiny houses, one way around the space issue is to utilize your yard or outdoor area. Some small homes have facilitated and incorporated patios that can transform, pull out, and expand to accommodate space for more guests and room to stretch your legs. If you can create and include flexibility to the exterior of your home, you will see the benefits of a large space, with the ability to retract and condense whenever you don’t need the space. This is also perfect for people that live in areas where the weather can be unpredictable, and keeping your home and patio away from dangers and damages of storms.
No matter the size of your home, you can still incorporate certain additions or changes to give it more worth than at face value. It is key that you maximize the space you have but not fall into the trap of cluttering your space. Balance is the key to luxury.
