“Decorate your home. It gives the illusion that your life is more interesting than it really is.”
Charles M. Schulz
Everything counts when owning a small space. Rooms can feel restraining and uncomfortable. But there are clever tricks and designing ideas that can fool the eye of others to make your room bigger and spacious. This includes choice of furniture, lighting and color techniques.
Light colors and ingenious contrasts.
Light colors are expansive and airy, making rooms seem larger and brighter while dark colors are urbane and warm which gives large room a more intimate appearance. Light colors makes room bigger and brighter while dark colors absorbs light so it makes a room look smaller.
Select off-white, blue and green tones. This will help to make a room more inviting and huge.
Lighting for space
The key element in opening a space is lighting. Letting natural light to enter the room makes it look bigger. If your place cannot receive pleasant lights from windows try to be creative with using lighting equipment. Leave your windows uncovered to give a room more depth.
This is the major rule. Maintain the cleanliness and organized image of the room. If you have a small space, make sure you live a minimal life and it only means minimalizing your possessions too. Tidy from time to time. Never allow clutter to feel your space. Clutter tend to add noise and chaos in a room.
Keep your flooring as clear as possible. Decorate your walls with a large one painting than a small paintings in groups. Make use of large rugs to create illusion or wide floor space.
Place for Mirrors
Mirrors gives the illusion of depth that can make a room larger than it usually was. With the right angle and reflections, a room can always appear larger.
Try using mirrored cabinet doors, mirrors on the walls and tabletops, mirrors near your window. It will give your space a more open feel.
Now a days, there are plenty of multi-functional furniture that are available in stores. Buying such items is probably the wisest decision anyone can make. Try replacing your dining tables into an expandable, folding, and nesting ones. Choose a sofa with arms and exposed legs. Use a bed with drawers and storage underneath. Glass tables help to maintain the image of an open space in a room. Always choose a furniture that agrees with your room size.
