Living in a big city but a tiny pad? That’s the deal with most of us living in metros. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make the best of the space we have. All it takes is a little bit of intelligent decoration, a little permutation and combination with the furniture, and nice lights. Making optimum use of a smaller room with the right kind arrangement is an art, and that’s what we’re going to learn today.
Colour plays a key role
Lighter colors reflect more light – we have all learned this in school. It’s time to implement that in life. Your wardrobe could be full of black t-shirts but your walls must be light colored. The more lights your walls reflect, the more spacious will your space look.
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Have you ever walked into a shop or a parlor and thought the place is quite huge only to realize a moment later that it’s actually the mirrors that are making it look huge? Use mirrors wisely to make an optical illusion of a larger space. The trick is to place mirrors on opposite walls.
Plastic Furniture: Keep it light, keep it smart
When it comes to making the best of tiny spaces, you will often need to rearrange your furniture. Things like accommodating a new washing machine or making space for guests for a party will require you to move around your furniture. Light plastic chairs and plastic tables are best suited for such houses where space is an issue.
Make it multi-purpose
A couple of nice plastic armchairs and a neat plastic table can not only work as a place to enjoy a cup of tea with your friends but can also be used as a sturdy corner. Just place a nice study lamp on the table and your tea-party zone will turn into a nice place to get some serious work done.
Tiny seating arrangements
Go with the minimalist way of life when it comes to seating arrangements. Is your plastic table high enough for having tea but too low to keep your laptop and work sitting on a chair? Use plastic stools! They are the perfect height, don’t take too much space, and if you’re getting them from Italica, you’d be getting really good looking ones as well.
Keep the air fresh
It can get stuffy very quickly in small spaces. Therefore, make sure you keep the rooms fresh. Use artificial air fresheners if possible. Also, don’t let the waste stink up the whole house. Use a good quality plastic waste bin, with a proper lid to make sure it does not emit any foul smell.
You don’t need a mansion to be happy. A well arranged tiny space can be the costliest home if you want.

They may be your gardener, watchmen, servants etc. It would be a nice and sweet gesture to make sure that they have nice seating arrangement as well. Therefore, investing in a few nice and strong plastic chairs for your outdoors can never go wrong.

Is there a favorite restaurant of yours that makes you happy the moment you step inside, and it’s not just the food? Is there a particular friend of yours whose house you love visiting, and it’s not just because of the great friendship you two have? There’s something about the atmosphere of these places that makes you cheerful. Little things make up for the ambiance of a place. One of them is the furniture. Bright, colorful plastic furniture affects your subconscious mind in ways that directly affect your mood.
Take restaurants for example
New age restaurants, cafes, and eating joints that try to appeal to a younger crowd make sure that their ambiance is bright and happy. That’s why you’d see brightly colored tables and chairs that lighten up the mood at once. Fast food joints use a lot of red chairs and tables. This is because the colour red raises the energy levels in our body. The young crowd, mostly from schools and colleges are attracted to this kind of energy. The best option for such places is plastic furniture. The number of color options that plastic furniture can provide cannot be matched by any other material. Italica’s spine care chair, or the sofa chair for outdoors are excellent examples of colorful, lightweight furniture that restaurants and cafes are using these days.

Colorful plastic tablesand plastic chairs come with extremely jovial, light and positive vibes that keeps students from looking outside the window out of boredom.
The trend with the corporates
Colors play a very important role to amplify the productivity of employees. People spend 9 hours of their day at their workplace, and therefore, it’s only necessary to make sure that the place does not burn them out mentally. Most modern corporate buildings have done away with their boring white walls and nondescript furniture with bright, colorful alternatives. Common rooms, learning centers, cafeterias are nowadays adorned with attractive plastic chairs that try to uplift the mood of the employees.
For a brighter home
Brighter the color of your furniture, the more light it will reflect. The rooms with brighter furniture look bigger, brighter and not to mention, feels happier.
