How do you update your small home to accommodate your 21st century lifestyle without remodeling? Here's how to get an update without the cost of adding on!
1. Taller Doors
Designer tip: Can't afford to replace and remodel your doors from 6'8 to 8'? Add pediments, antique windows or mirrors above your doors. It will give you the added affect, and won't break the bank.
2. Raise the Drapes
Designer tip: Add features to the top of your drapes like grommets, ribbon, or buttons. The added texture creates shadowing and more weight to the top of the drape.
3. Extended Cabinets
Designer tip: Already have a good kitchen in place and not about to remodel your kitchen? Try replacing a couple of cabinet doors with glass fronts and place a mirror in the back of the cabinet, Use glass shelves and install a light. You will be amazed how this simple procedure will give you the illusion of doubling your space.
Mirrors add sparkle, grab and bounce light, and reflect objects from different angles. They are excellent weapons for a small space.
Designer tip: Be careful what you are reflecting, you don't want to look into a mirror from the front door and see the dirty dishes stacked up in the sink.
Instead of choosing a small rug, go for the largest one that your room can fit. A larger one makes the room feel bigger.
