Lack of space is always a problem, and it is usual for current homes to have a very limited space. However this “mini floor” located in Gran Canaria, is a perfect example of how to solve the lack of square meters with imagination and elegance. Decorating small spaces with good taste is possible.
Recently we have opened a new section of the Blog called ” “, where the proposal is to invite our readers to visit those beautiful houses that we see in this social network. On this occasion we thank Yaiza , who opened the doors of his house, which we met through his Instagram account @yaidecora . Then we invite you to visit this beautiful apartment in the Fortunate Islands.
Functionality and flexibility in the distribution of a mini floor
The main concern when decorating a mini floor is that it should have the same functionality as a conventional home. It is very important that the distribution of the spaces be flexible , allowing that, moving some furniture of position, we can allocate the stay to another activity.
The functionality is achieved with the rational distribution of furniture and with the maximum that all elements must have at least one function .
The arrangement of the work table with its back to the window and serving as a support on the side of the sofa is an ingenious way to take advantage of the light and space of the room. Light colors and fiber elements remain the protagonists of the composition.
The house is located on an island next to the Tropic of Cancer, which makes it enjoy an almost tropical climate of mild winters and warm summers. This characteristic makes a harmonious decoration fully integrated into this paradisiacal environment in which light and warmth are the main protagonists.
A palette of colors ideal for decorating small spaces
The chromatic range is composed of light colors with a predominance of white and pastel colors . These tonalities represent tranquility, balance and a touch of freshness and naturalness. The white metal table in the image has a vintage feel that combines fantastically with the carpet of natural fibers of the room.

The house perfectly combines functionality with the natural component of plant fibers. , fiber mats and lampshades of braided bands give a natural air typical of the colonial style . In any room and wall there is a fiber element that serves as a link between the different objects.
How to solve storage in small spaces
To decorate small spaces it is necessary to use all the ingenuity and imagination possible to achieve storage areas . Low furniture with shelves and drawers are an ideal solution that does not saturate the space and offer a large volume of storage. In the living room of this charming apartment have been used in a practical way shelves at different heights that serve as support for plants and decorative objects.
In this area the idea of low furniture takes the end and has been dispensed with the legs of the bed, getting a sense of spaciousness and relief. The luminosity is one of the protagonists of this harmonious home. It combines the green color of the plant elements (plants), with the warm tones of fiber mats and natural wood. These tones provide the atmosphere with a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.
The importance of fabrics
On the contrary, in the main room we have opted for a simpler decoration. It has been chosen to use a screen as a headboard, minimizing the presence of decorative elements, limited to simple pieces of wicker hanging from it, giving prominence to the prints of the bedspread of the large double bed.
The kitchen as a work center
In the kitchen, predominates with discreet handles to manipulate drawers and cabinets. The countertop is made of black granite, which creates an interesting contrast with the white of the kitchen furniture. It is a small kitchen but with enough space for all the tasks that are carried out in this room of the house.
