As the trend continues to grow, an influx of new tiny homes for sale has entered the market as prospective homeowners look for alternatives to expensive traditional homes. However, a major hurdle these potential homeowners face is making a comfortable living environment in such a limited space. If you’re considering a tiny home or have already moved in, here’s how to make your tiny home feel more inviting.
Emphasize Natural Light
The way we light our homes can have a larger impact on our mental health than we may think. Because of this, you want to focus on providing your tiny home an adequate source of natural light. This natural light is non-abrasive, and a well-lit room will feel bigger when corners and other nooks are not hiding in the dark. To reap the benefits of natural lighting, a few methods you could use include:
- Mirrors reflect and amplify light, creating the illusion of a larger space than you have.
- Windows and skylights give natural light a way to enter your home.
- Light colors on your walls will also make it easier to reflect light and cover the entire space with natural lighting.
Keep the Space Organized
One of the most basic methods to make your tiny home feel more inviting is to keep on top of housekeeping and cleanliness. Allowing clutter to build will cause your tiny home to feel tighter and claustrophobic, while grime and dust will make the home uncomfortable and unappealing.
Designing the Colors
As previously mentioned, lighter colors reflect light and ensure your tiny home stays well-illuminated and appears as spacious as possible. However, sticking to neutral colors is pretty boring. Adding splashes of color to your home helps add more personality and distinction, but it’s good to stay particular about what colors you use. Warm colors like red or orange can make the environment feel warmer while still reflecting light, while colder colors, such as blue hues, promote a feeling of calm and serenity but mute and absorb light more.Previous Article Next Article
