The most common problem designers always face during a renovation is a distinct lack of space. Where ideas are plentiful and the space is short, things can become very frustrating. This is the reason many designers try to come up with space-saving hacks and layouts that can make any home looks like a private home. As an ode to their creativity, below, we’ll be looking at 5 clever layouts to make your room more spacious.
When you’re looking to enhance the circulation space, it’s best to stick with the wall-to-wall formation. It allows you to sweep all the essentials to the side so that you can have a large amount of circulation space in the middle. This makes your homes look inherently spacious from the start.
2. Proportionate furniture
Sometimes, when you’re sourcing furniture for your HDBs, your heart might get set on something that might be a little too big for your homes. In such ways, proportionate furniture can end up determining the layout of your space. If the furniture suits the dimensions of your space just right, it can automatically end up looking spacious no matter the layout.
3. Dreaming of a closet
For those who’d love to have their own walk-in closets but feel like the space is not enough – rejoice! With this clever layout, you can have a small walk-in of your own. You might have to borrow a little space from the bedroom, but if you clad an entire wall in looking mirror, you can end up with a considerably glamorous bedroom come walk-in.
4. Media wall separation
The media wall can either be the centerpiece of the room, or as this image suggests, it can also act as a partition wall. If you’re using it as a partition wall, you can make it a centralized accent wall with clear circulation spaces on either side. This not only makes a small room looks spacious, but also allows you to play with the overall layout as you wish.
5. Dual purposed
If you’re looking at an accent wall that connects to the other side of the space, then you can use it as a multipurpose feature. For example, if you have a media wall that has a free back, you can use it for an in-built shelving unit, a dresser, a wardrobe or something else to your liking.
