How to make the most of your small home with interiors!
We live in an era of vertical masses and horizontal urban sprawl. Kent Larson, a famous urbanist, has declared our world an asteroid of architectural garbage. In a way he is correct; the population boom has only led to more atypical advancements in architecture and in turn, interior designing. Real estate is a precious commodity these days, and those who do own a home covet to make it seem more spacious and organized than it is.
Many designers have strived to work on this concept – what to do in order to emulate more glamour and luxury in the small spaces that we have. They’ve come up with many solutions that have become global phenomena’s. These include the concept of an open floor layout, visual transparency and of course compact interior designing. The Arc Define design team understands this concept and how to emulate that within your homes. So below, we’ll be looking at some exceptional ways in which they’ve managed to combine both the functional and aesthetical aspects of a space within a small interior.
- A nicely compact plan
Compact planning is an extremely challenging task to accomplish, especially when you’re working with a predetermined framework of space. However, the Arc Define team has done an amazing job with pulling off a successful plan by engaging in double height spaces and neatly stacked elevations. In the image below, you will notice the step-on-step elevation of the small kitchenette and music area – both have retained their functional integrity while giving off a dual beautiful aesthetic.
- Layering the spaces
Hitting that perfect height sweet spot while layering two individual space on top of each other can be quite impossible. But the designers at Arc Define certainly managed to find that perfect compromise which allows the user to fully utilize both the kitchen as well as music area without deeming any of the space redundant.
- Horizontal amalgamation
While vertical amalgamation of spaces is hard, horizontal combinations could be just as creatively daunting. However, these are much more doable than most.The designers have fully utilized the space below while combining the functional aspects of a bedroom-come-study in a creative way. Even though the space is small, the aesthetics and function never fall short of the bets.
- Engaging natural lighting
Incorporating natural light is a mainstream but successful way to make small interiors seem more spacious. The designers have respected that age old concept and utilized all natural light to the fullest by designing large, sliding windows that let in an abundance of natural light in the interiors.
- Resizing the furniture
If the context of the space is slightly altered – like a kid’s room instead of an adult one – then you can increase the spatial efficiency of the room by resizing the furniture. In the image below, the Arc Define team has expertly resized the furniture to kid size to accommodate more spaciousness within the small space.
