While choosing where to invest your hard-earned money, it’s indeed important to look for the things good for the entire family. And when you finally pick the right community—considering all the basic needs and wants of your family—it’s time to dwell in that community and maximize it to its full potential.
Since, space is a crucial thing in line not only for the housing cost but for the comfort of the family, it is good to calculate how much space your family will need.

In addition, floor-to-ceiling shelves could be placed in empty corners. Floor-to-ceiling shelves could be used to de-clutter the room. It gives additional storage and may serve as book shelves and photo frame compartments. It is advisable to build one in the bedroom, kitchen, and living room. It also draws the eyes upward making the ceiling look higher.
Use one scheme light colors
Humans are visual beings, thus, colors tend to affect moods. As colors remain subjective for humans, they also play an important role in architecture. To make your house look spacious, use only one scheme of color (preferably light) in wall, curtains and furniture. Using only a single scheme of colors, light would be able to bounce back. Also, one scheme of color gives us a sense of continuity—making the room appear bigger.
