We cannot always have all the square meters in our home that would be able to carry out the activities that we like so much. To improve in this aspect, the idea is that you design your space thinking that it works so that you can live in total comfort, avoiding crowds of furniture or other elements, and always opting for open spaces.
For small houses, a good idea is to cancel all partitions as much as possible. Logically, we do not want to find the bedroom in front of the entrance door either, so we can use furniture as room dividers or even screens, which will also act as decorative elements.
The delimitation of areas, even in open concept homes, is essential to know how to separate the activities carried out in some rooms or others. For example, a kitchen integrated with the dining room is always a good solution, but don’t forget to mark the passage between this area where we will be cooking every day and the living room where we will spend time with family or watch television.
Multifunctional Furniture, An Essential Tool
Multifunctional furniture, such as folding tables that we can quickly unfold or collect daily do not take up much space and are perfect for gaining space. To receive your guests, there is nothing better than folding chairs that you can keep hidden the rest of the time.
Take advantage of space, including corners, by adding floating furniture such as the office chair (เก้าอี้ ทำงาน, which is the term in Thai). Those type of furniture that moves away from the floor tend to give a greater feeling of spaciousness. In homes with smaller square meters, it is something very appreciated.
Finally, our advice is that you use well-measured lighting to create depth and illuminate corners in the living room or bedrooms. In this way, you will help open spaces and create different environments that you can take advantage of depending on the activities you carry out in the different hours of the day.
