No one likes to small, cramped houses.

  • Fill your house with natural light- One thing that most people do not know is that proper lighting matters. With the right (natural) light, your homes opens up, feels bigger and better. However, not having enough light makes your house feel cramped, regardless of how it was built. Trying getting more natural light with windows in the right places, or painting your house with colours that reflect light. Bright wall finishes can also be used.
  • Have a comfortable bed- This is important because it will also serve as a couch for guests.
  • De-clutter- Having a small house means you can not have too much stuff. This is no reason to be sad. Simply, figure out what is important and give out what is not. You can save yourself a lot of stress by having multipurpose items, for example, a table that is used for reading, ironing and eating, or a bed that is also a couch.

It is quit easy to dislike small houses, however, they have one advantage, they can be played with .

You can literally turn it into anything you want.

All you need to be is creative, and your one-room apartment can be turned into a palace.
