In terms of floors, engineer Reham points out that “dark or multi-material, that is, the floors covered by two types of marble (or ceramic), one of which is light in color and the other dark, indicates a lack of space. ” Therefore, she asks that the floors of the rooms of the house with limited space (except for the floors). Bathroom) with the same type of tiles (ceramic, for example marble, or parquet) are tiled, as well as the same color (sugar, beige, beige gray, white or light wood).

Small home decorating tips
- Entrance: The wall opposite the front door of the house is covered with mirrors, which gives a feeling of comfort. The said space may include a shelf above a natural plant.
- Lounge: The room performs the functions of gathering family members, as well as receiving guests, which requires that it be equipped with appropriate, beautiful and comfortable furniture, or the family members now sit with the purpose of watching TV or even lying on it. In this context, the engineer, Reham, lists the appropriate colors for furniture fabrics, which are: gray, beige, light blue or light pink, that is, light colors in general. Engineer Reham emphasizes the importance of having a dining area in the space, as long as the table and chairs are well thought out in terms of sizes and comfort, and away from the choice of dividers that insulate between the corners. The walls are decorated with colorful (or fiery) paintings and accessories. As for the floors, it is spread with small pieces of ordinary carpets, and the windows are obscured by light curtains which, in terms of size, do not exceed them just a little. The TV is installed in a place so that it can be viewed by those sitting in the sitting area, such as in the dining area, provided that the aforementioned place is covered with mirrors, with two pairs of shelves running lengthwise to the right and left of the TV screen.

As for the bed, a fabric-lined one is finally in vogue, and it fits in with a narrow room, as long as the material is chosen in gray, light gray (or pink, light blue or gray). Cabinets with mirror fronts also replace the space, as well as a mirror table built into the wall, complete with drawers, and with a separate mirror.
- Boys ‘(or girls’) bedroom: It is equipped with two beds stacked on top of each other, which holds a place for storage in its practical design. The storage space takes the form of a ladder that connects the two beds. But if each of the two beds is spread out on a wall in the room, perpendicular, then the space in the middle of the two beds is for the entertainment of the occupants of the room. In the lower space of each bed in this design there is a place for storage.

The cupboards are painted in a light color that suits the occupants of the room, with shelves spread on the walls.
The kitchen in the house is small in size
Small kitchen cabinets look “closed” and white, with kitchen “accessories” spread out on one wall. Another idea is to distribute the kitchen units in the shape of the letter L. Whatever the shape of the kitchen, it is necessary to pay attention to the hidden lighting in it, with the choice of floor white (or gray), the walls covered with white ceramic, and the ceiling painted with white paint. In this space, engineer Reham does not advise the presence of accessories and plants, and asks for an increase in the number of cabinets and drawers so that none of the stuff appears on the sink, indicating that the place is cluttered.
The bathroom in turn includes white sanitary ware, a large mirror and light-colored rugs. The bathroom walls are clad in ordinary light-colored ceramics, and the shower cubicle is framed by a transparent frame to make room.
