One of the most exciting aspects of being a new home owner is the fact that you will have the privilege of being able to design your new home’s interior. Whether or not you decide on hiring the services of an interior designer or not, having the freedom and power to choose how you wish your own home to look like is something that is cherished by many a new home owner.
If you have a compact home with not too much space, you will need to be extra creative in designing your interiors in such a way that it will still be finely and tastefully designed while taking into consideration of the space limitations. With small homes and spaces, you will want to maximize function but maintain a certain level of aesthetics which you will be able to appreciate every day you come home to it.
One strategy to achieve this objective is to utilize corners intelligently. Most of the time in most homes, corners are relegated to becoming a non-functional space by installing a furniture piece in it that is just aimed at filling that space. But I believe a better strategy would be to fill that space with some kind of corner seating furniture like a corner settee or a compact 2 or 3 seater sofa.
The advantage of doing this is that the corner becomes a functional part of the house rather than remain unused and filled with a useless piece of furniture that may or may not add a touch of aesthetics.
Don’t get me wrong, we do need furniture that adds some art in our home space but with compact, small and limited space, you have to think harder to make it work. After all you do not want to clutter your already limited space with unnecessary items but at the same time, you do not want to be all function. We all need a little art in our lives and you can think of your living room as a blank canvass!
Installing corner seating in suitable corner areas of your home instantly makes those areas a nice and cozy place to hang out. To add a little style, you can choose among the new and modern sofa styles coming out that are even aimed for homes that are exactly like yours— compact and small!
