There are many different reasons as to why you may have to move, it can be because of a new job opportunity, starting a family, or in some tragic cases, they can no longer afford to continue living at their current location. Sometimes, we have to bite the bullet and downsize our habitat and move to a smaller area. Though it is doable, it is also difficult to get used to a location that is smaller than the one you have gotten used to inhabiting. Here are some tips to take into account when your future has a more modest home on the horizon.
Organize your Belongings
Having your belongings scattered around your house betrays the size of the location. It gives the visual of living in a cramped existence. Take advantage of storing your things in clever places, such as storing in boxes that can slide under your bed, or have furniture that doubles as storage containers.
Open Up with Illusion
Utilize light colors on your walls, bright rugs and utilize lighting. This will help open up your home and add a positive feeling to your house. Try not to put your furniture on your walls, having space between the couch and wall can make the area appear larger. You may also want to consider getting rid of some of your initial furniture as well because having too much furniture can overcrowd a room.
Dial it Down
Think about what you are buying before you do so you can avoid buying too many things, as this can lead to you boxing yourself in and cramping your space. Stick to having the basics of what you need and make sure anything you purchase will have in your home.
Feeling cooped up in your new, smaller location, maybe go outside. Go for a drive, bike ride, or even a walk. A change of scenery can help you deal with living in a small space.
