Elegantly Done Small House Interior Design Ideas

Small houses and loft apartments are today a part of urban living. Most of our cities are populated so heavily, spacious and roomy houses are not the rule but the exception. With more people keen to have a home in fashionable quarters and inside the town limits, small homes and apartments are practical solution for the house crunch and high real estate rates.

With the arrival of small houses, minimalist, contemporary and eclectic furniture has come to be in much demand. People have not space, place, time or interest to find humongous looking solid furniture. People live in mini houses and minuscule apartments so they want small -size furniture that will not look clumsy or heavy in the limited space available.

In most small houses or apartments, the living room doubles up as dining room. The house designs are open and quite fluid with an open type kitchen that runs into the living room directly. The formal dining room has been replaced by the kitchen counters or kitchen-island counters that serve as the dining area with either high dining chairs or some bar stools with adjustable heights.

Bedrooms are small with compact beds – maybe king size along with built-in storage under the bed for storing extra stuff. The wardrobes are mostly wall supported – maybe walk-in closets which can match the bed and nightstands. A small built-in alcove could be the dressing area. Any work area or the home office is most probably accommodated right in the bedroom.

Kids; rooms and the guest bedroom are self-contained and the furniture is easy to maintain kind as well small in size and modernly minimalist in style. With modular furniture options, kids’ rooms come with bunk bed and modular units that can make the kids’ room completely self-sufficient and cool looking through out year.

Dining areas need storage area to keep the extra cutlery and crockery as well extra serving dishes that you may not use on a daily basis. Even if you do not have a separate dining room, you will need storage cabinets near dining area without fail. You can create a focal area of décor if you opt for great looking sideboards that can be used for storage too.

Formerly dining rooms used to be separate from living room areas where family will dine every day. Dining room is where your guests eat either a sit-down formal dinner or a buffet that can be casual and relaxed. But nowadays dining area is adjacent to the living room area. Some of us have a separate dining table and chair set or most of us use high bar stools and eat off the island or kitchen counters.

When you have such an informal dining setting, you can create elegance and sophistication by bringing in a beautiful and traditional looking side board as an accent piece. Sideboards can be exotic looking in baroque fashion making your dining area and kitchen a stylishly elegant and beautifully furnished area.

Sideboards can have bow fronted look or straight cut fronts and like the patio console table, the dining area consoles can have beautiful and ornamental framed mirrors. The mirror not only adds a special decorative accent, the entire kitchen – dining section looks brightly lit and more beautiful. Sometimes instead of a mirror, a beautiful painting, wall art or artifact can be suspended over the console table.

Sideboards can have shelves with doors or pull-out drawers. Some sideboards are specially made with bow fronts, and special carved details in the corners or in the center. Some of them have additional glamour with gilded designs and special carvings etc.

Here you can see a number of sideboards that look very authentically rococo and ornate in design and finish. These sideboards are from the stables of Elitis. They look very elegant and chic with a good amount of carving and hand-tooling done to make them look imposing and grand looking with additional gilding and other hand work. Theses gilded tables look really elegant and chic and will add to the style quotient of your dining area and your kitchen!
