For potential home owners, BTO flats can be a great way to get our own home sweet home despite it is a small square foot space. But, how do we convert a small space into our ideal home? Let’s take a look!
1. Focusing on open spaces
Open floor plans and small spaces go hand in hand these days. The smaller your home, the more you should be careful about creating a spacious layout. Open floor plans are a great way to do that. They can be decorated with a number of themes while retaining a spacious vibe. So if your BTO is small, then you should definitely opt for an open floor plan.
2. Getting innovative with the furniture
The thing about furniture is that it can take up a lot of space. Even a single couch takes a lot more area than some small BTO apartments can spare. You have to get a little innovative in such cases. Start coming up with alternatives that could help your save a lot of space. For example, in the living room, instead of a couch set you can design a small platform as a seating area. You can further decorate it with small throw pillows and large floor cushions to get a comfy vibe.
3. Minimal designs
Simplicity is the best design form when it comes to small space interior design. If you use too many things to decorate a small space, it will end up looking cluttered and too full. So make sure that all the design elements – including accent and media walls, furniture and even ceiling – are as simple and minimalistic as possible.
4. Large circulation space
If you have small circulation spaces, then your interior design can automatically start looking constricted and small. On the other hand, if you have large circulation space even in a small residence, the space would instantly start looking larger. So when you’re designing the interior of your dream BTO home, make sure there are a lot of free forming circulation spaces.
5. Transparent enclosed spaces
There are rooms in a home that should be enclosed no matter what. You cannot include them in the open floor plan. You can create transparent walls between these spaces and the rest of the interior design to get an open feeling. For example, if you have a study room that you want to be closed-off; you can design glass walls to do that instead of brick masonry.
