Small is big - Transformational Designs for the modern compact spaces

The living spaces have shrunk considerably today because of the rise in population and decrease in land resources. The interior designs need to create open and luxurious experiences keeping in mind the constraint of size available. In our everyday lives, we live in spaces that are active, changing, and dynamic. When designers create interior spatial designs for various types of uses and experiences, they consider both the aesthetic qualities of a space and ways in which people experience the interactions and sensations within the spaces. In order to create the modern compact space, the focus needs to be on - Innovative lighting solutions, unique flooring solutions, modern bathroom and kitchen fittings, etc.
