Decorating with light: 7 easy tips that will embellish your tiny house

different kinds of light bulbs

When it comes to small homes and tiny houses, maximizing the usable space is of great importance in order to be able to have a functional home without lacking anything. Decoration options are quite limited for tiny homes from obvious reason.

While we can all agree that tiny houses look adorable as they are due to the building style and their compact layout, adding personality requires careful planning.

You don’t want to interrupt the perfect way in which all elements are set, so clearly large decorative items are off the table.

But how about experimenting with lights? Lights obviously don’t take up a lot of space and they can perfectly fit in the vintage yet modern atmosphere that a tiny house has.

Live? Love? Laugh? Dream? Smile? The choice is yours!

If you have a nightstand, a shelf or a table that could use a bit of decoration, one such flameless fire pit can add a great personality to the entire room.

All you need are some lights, a few sticks and a few stones (pun not intended). Arrange the stones in a circle and place the string lights in the middle.

Make sure the light can reach the socket before anything else! Set the sticks up in a way they would mimic how a fire pit would look like. And there…
