Good Small House Plans
Small house plans are popular but are not a style of home. Small house plans make sense for many people and families because they are more affordable. Small house plans can be anything from a cottage, ranch style or even cabin or almost any other style home. A common characteristic of small house plans is an attempt to make the room seem like it is bigger than the actual footage of the room. One of the ways architects compensate for the square footage in small house plans is to build high ceilings, thereby making the space feel larger regardless of the actual square footage. There a number of design tools a homeowner can apply to accent this feature. The owner can create a horizontal border across the room and paint the lower half a slightly darker color and top half a lighter color. This creates a visual illusion of more height. Homeowners can also compliment their small home plans by buying small paintings that are similar in size and hang them in a vertical line in a prominent area on the wall. This also creates an illusion and draws the focus to the vertical height rather than the length or width.
Another facet homeowners must consider when deciding how to use their small house plans is the placement of furniture. A common mistake made by interior designers for small house plans is using large furniture that does not fit the space. Homeowners must avoid over decorating the rooms to compensate for the size, as the over decorating can emphasize the smallness of the area. The best approach to design for tiny house plans is to keep the furniture and decorations minimal.
