When you feel swallowed up by the small space in your house, try these decoration tips. It just need some shifting of your existing furniture, no bursting of your budget but it can do wonders in creating an illusion of a bigger space.
Stacking up your cupboards
Most of us has a two-shelf or a three-shelf cupboard. You don’t have to separate them. Marry them together and they make a pretty couple for your deco. And free up spaces too.
Placing a two-shelf next to a three-shelf can change dramatically your house deco. It also gives you more decorative space to bring back in your favorite plant from the garden or that old antique clock which was sadly hidden in the attic.
If you love reading, fill these cupboards with your magazines and books, place it near your favorite sofa. Snuggle up with a throw pillow and just reach out for a leisure relaxing read. It can literally transform the character of your interior.
You can punch in more artistry in your house deco by filling up these shelves with a display of eye-catching and unique decorative items like the big seashell which you have collected from your last beach holiday. They make great conversation pieces especially when it is your lover first visit to your house. It can be awfully awkward silent when suddenly both of you ran out of topics.
