Make your Small Space look Bigger
There are many reasons that people prefer to live in small space or an apartment. Some people live in a small apartment because that’s all they can afford, and they’re grateful for it. Some people live in a small apartment or home because they’re tired of taking care of a larger place and want to “economize.” Others just don’t want a large home. Small is beautiful! And easy, and practical, too! Doesn’t Matter why you are living in small space, you’ll definitely have to make some compromises in your decorating, get really organized, and make some adjustments to your lifestyle in order to make everything fit and not feel restricted.
If you really feel the need to stretch out in your small space, you can make some decorating changes to make the area look and feel larger without moving any walls! With color, furniture arranging, and interesting lighting, your space won’t feel so cramped.
Let’s see if some of our tips will work for your small space to look Bigger:
Use of more Lighting:
First of all to make a small room look bigger, use a lot of light in the room. Use blinds to maximize sunlight. Any room will look larger if it’s well-lit, either by natural light or artificial lighting. Get rid of heavy draperies and open up the windows to let the light of the outdoors into the space. Add more lamps or install track lighting or recessed lighting. If you have drapes, hang them high to give the room the appearance of being higher. Use furniture with open arms and exposed legs to maximize the flow of light.
Paint your walls with Light Shades:
Dark colors may seem design-friendly, but they make rooms look smaller. The lighter the shade is, the more open your space will appear, so stick to pale blues, grays, greens, yellows, and creams etc., So that your room will look bigger. The lights color shades are very attractive for the wall and make your room fresh as well. Paint the walls in different tones of the same color to give an appearance of receding space. Use lighter colors for borders and trim. Use darker colors for accent pillows, bedskirts, tableskirts, and curtain ties.
Clean-up the Disorder:
There’s nothing that makes a small space feel restricted more than having too much material and accessories. Work out ways to get collections out of view, organized behind doors, table skirts, or on shelves. With things gracefully set and out of sight, the space that is in view will feel orderly and open
Open the Way:
Overcrowding the view into a room and out to open spaces with furniture and accessories, a room will look restricted. You’ll open up the space and make it feel larger by moving furniture out and away from walkways. You can also choose short pieces of furniture like an ottoman, an arm less, open chair, or a low table, and place large, tall pieces along a wall rather than out in the open space. If you can see the floor, the room will look larger.
Use the Entire Wall:
Placing a piece of furniture against a wall can make the space seem smaller. Instead of placing one of these items, use the entire wall. Floor to ceiling modular pieces from furniture companies are good options as well as custom-built models for people who can afford them.
Use of Mirror:
Wall-to-wall mirrors may seem like a ’70s design leftover, but adding a little glass opens up the area and reflects light on a budget? Cruise flea markets and garage sales for bargains. Use mirrors to make a small room look bigger. Put mirrors on closest doors and hang a large mirror on a wall.
While you’ve probably heard that a clean, white ceiling will open up a space, giving your ceiling texture with bright colors and fun fixtures draws your eye upward, creating the illusion of height in a room. Use of ceiling pops is a better idea to make the room bigger and classy. It looks really specious if you will use of ceiling pops.
Use a few large, simple pieces of furniture or accessories in place of several smaller pieces which would make a small space look disorderly. You’ll actually create an airier atmosphere by displaying one prominent item by using small things for small room — from a statement sofa to a curved armchair — rather than putting tons of tiny pieces everywhere. With open space and large blocks of color, the room will appear to be more calm and comfortable.
