Deco tips for small houses

If your apartment is small and has limited area for to and fro movement, then try to keep less and trendy furniture which doesn’t block the rooms and looks good too. The furniture in a house is meant to facilitate living and not obstruct easy and free movement inside the house.

This will not only make the house congested but also bad to look at and inconvenient for the home dwellers.  Also, for small apartments or houses it is necessary that they have light or bright colours on their walls. Cream, light green, light pink and light lavender will make the house look bright and spacious and also absorb sunlight. The paint of walls is the background for everything decorative in the house hence it should be chosen carefully.

Cool Sunlight and ventilation

If your house is small and has few windows or one balcony, then it is important that you utilize the sunlight coming from it to the optimum and do not put dark films, iron nets, dark curtains, and coverings that obstruct the path of sunshine and ventilation.

Keep the windows and balconies free and put light curtains, plants, or small hangings (in balconies if you want to decorate it) and not anything else.

Curtains, furniture and upholstery 

For small houses it is important to keep small and light furniture which fits easily in the house and leaves space for movement. The furniture should match the colour of the walls and curtains and should seem like a well-planned matrix. In cities like Mumbai, the culture of keeping foldable furniture is in vogue, as the size of houses there is very small and not everyone can afford a big house.


Trendy and multi-use furniture are available everywhere now and are reasonable as well. Not only they facilitate living but also look good.

The next important aspects are the curtains and furnishings of the house, which should echo the room for spaciousness and warmth. These should be in sync with the colour of the walls and furniture. Since light colours are prescribed for small houses, so should be the colour of the curtains and furnishings. This will allow the sunlight to filter through them, even when they are drawn and give the house a well-lit, ventilated, bright and spacious look. Dark colours will make a small house look smaller and hence should be avoided.
