Tips for maximizing compact spaces: smart tricks to make the most of every centimeter

Storing everything in an apartment or small house is difficult, and arranging and arranging everything is more difficult. However, whether you’re trying to make the most of a studio or a spare room in a modest home, a little creative thinking can go a long way in making your space more open and comfortable.



In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Tushar Mistry, Principal Architect at TMDS revealed, “The space provided by the high ceilings allows for an abundance of natural light. It is intriguing, interesting and useful in itself. Spaces with higher ceilings are easier to cool in warmer climates. When it comes to storage, the space can be maximized vertically and you will have room to install unique lighting and other decorative elements.”

According to him, one of the most important ways to create a sense of space is through the use of light. He said: “Designers will maximize any space by including windows or skylights in strategic locations. It is important to have several different types of lighting in any given room. Multitasking windows require strategic design. The perfect place for a built-in bench or a cozy reading corner, for example, is in front of a bay window. To further expand the illusion of space, place a mirror opposite the window. Countertops can have the same rough texture as the walls for a uniform look and feel.”



He suggested: “Clever use of linear grooves also gives the illusion of height. Disorganization is a major waste of space. The trend towards minimalist architecture and interior design has gained popularity for several reasons. It’s better to think strategically about where you can put your things than to get rid of them all. Installing storage space saves money over time compared to purchasing separate containers. Built-in shelving, open shelving, closets, hidden storage, walk-in closets and upgraded closet space are some architectural storage solutions.”

Bringing his expertise to bear on the same, Ekant Singh, founder and CEO of Page2813 advised, “Using shiny materials has the same amplifying effect as a mirror, reflecting light and creating a brighter and more open environment. Glass pocket doors let natural light into the room without compromising privacy. These doors slide nicely into the wall when not in use and are more space efficient than swing doors. Covering a wall from floor to ceiling creates the illusion of more space.”



He recommended: “One possible use is as a gallery wall, providing ambient lighting for the room. Vertical planning maximizes small spaces. Changing the color of the wall or arranging the furniture in a variety of bright colors can also help create a positive atmosphere in a small space. Drapes are a great tool to hide clutter and gain visual control. Using multi-tasking furniture is essential. Having a deep sofa that doubles as a daybed and round tables that double as a desk or table will help you make better use of the space you have when hosting guests.”
