Getting a small area around the home or the whole house to look larger is possible by following some simple steps.
- Repaint the ceiling or use a background to give the space a taller appearance
It doesn’t matter whether it is your living room, or your bedroom, repainting the ceiling or using wallpaper can make a room look bigger. The secret is that a brightly colored ceiling will allow you to raise your brows upwards which make the space appear big and spacious. Use light color paint on the walls
When the walls in a room are painted with dark colors, it makes the room look a bit cozier due to they absorb light. Whereas when the walls are painted with bright colours, it helps to make a room more spacious since light readily gets reflected around the room.
- Ensure furniture’s aren’t placed closed to the wall
Creating space between the wall and furniture creates the illusion of a large room; making the room look more open unlike when you place them close to the wall which makes the area look cramped.
- Use light colors on the ground too
Just like in the case of a brightly painted wall, a brightly colored flooring also gives a space a spacious outlook. You may decide on a floor remodeling if you are up for it or simply just get a brightly colored rug or carpeting. Place shelves near the ceiling to get people to look up.
You can make a small space look bigger by putting structures in place to draw the eye towards the ceiling. And one effective way you can attain this would be to hang a shelf near the ceiling. It may be a book shelf or one with an array of decorations which are pleasing to the eyes. Make use of large decorative accents
Accenting a room with large decorations like tall vases or handmade items can get it to appear large. This is because few big decorations in a room give it a detailed outlook unlike when you cramp it up with smaller decorations scattered here and there.
- Go for furniture’s that makes a statement
So you want the living room to be much spacious to make space for air and light, a simple way to achieve this is to make use of a large couch rather than several small pieces which makes it look a lot cluttered.
- Put a striped rug on the ground
This works perfectly in a small bedroom. Putting a striped rug like that of a zebra makes your room appear bigger.
- Use color coding on shelves
Arranging items on shelves according to colors makes space looked structured and organized which finally gives the room a spacious appeal.
- Improve a tiny bathroom with a clear shower curtain
You can give a little bathroom a spacious look by having a brightly colored shower curtain.
