Accessory dwelling units, often referred to as granny flats, are a very popular trend in home remodeling at the moment. If you have a garage or a basement unit on your property, it’s fairly easy to convert it into an extra living space with help from the right adu contractors. Since granny flats are small, they can be challenging to decorate if you’re used to living in a much larger space. Here are some tips for decorating your granny flat to maximize the space available and make it feel cozy.

Use mirrors to make your space appear larger

When you’re working with a small space, mirrors are a must-have decorative item. They immediately make your space look larger than it actually is by reflecting the light and space. Placing a set of two mirrors across from each other can really maximize this effect in small rooms.

Maximize your walls with shelves

One of the most challenging parts of decorating a small space is finding enough storage space. One of the best ways to deal with this is by putting shelves high up on your walls, so you can store items out of the way. This leaves more floor space to work with and can make your space feel less cluttered in general.

Emphasize natural light

Natural light is always the most flattering type of light. When decorating your space, don’t put anything in front of windows or skylights – you’ll want to really let the light in. During the renovation process, you may want to add more natural light by installing a door with windows or carving out skylights.

Install a kitchen island and bar stools

One of the trickiest parts of designing a small space or a granny flat is the kitchen. You need to fit several features in a relatively small space, which can be very challenging. One of the best ways to tackle it is to install a kitchen island with stools – you’ll have more cooking space to work with, and it eliminates the need for a table.

With a little creativity, you can make a small ADU feel like a perfect little oasis.
