It is not necessary for you to knock down a wall or remove furniture from your room to make a small room look larger. All you have to do is read this blog and incorporate the tricks given below to visually expand the width and length of your room.
For instance, you can choose a paint color that tricks your mind into thinking that your room has expanded visually. But before we get into the nitty and gritty of room designing you need to get rid of the extra clutter in your room because no matter how hard you try the clutter in your room will always win. So, begin by selling or donating the extra items in your room and then follow the design tips we have gathered for you in this blog.
Select the right paint color
It is all about tricking the eyes into viewing something as bigger. So, make sure you select a paint that is light or has different shades of white. The color white will not only expand the room visually but also make the room look cleaner. However, you have to make sure that you choose the right shades of white for the walls and then color the ceiling with a matching hue.
Let your walls breathe
What I mean by letting your walls breathe is that you have to keep the furniture away from the walls. Pushing the furniture right against the wall will only make your room look congested and small. And in order to get the same airy effect, you have to first avoid keeping too many pieces of furniture in one room. Next, you can stop positioning the chairs, tables and most vitally, your bed right against the wall. If you follow this trick you will automatically feel your room has more space and it looks visually larger.
Curate your furniture collection
This is not a trick but a way of creating large spaces. Say, you have a collection of furniture that eats up every space in your room. What will you do in this situation? Simply put, the best way to maximize space is by getting rid of small pieces of furniture. For example, you have three chairs in your room. Instead of stacking three chairs in a corner, fill that space with a bean bag or a single sofa. You can also curate your entire furniture if you are looking for a major change.
Go for ceiling-to-floor curtains
This is one of my favorite tricks and it really works wonders for tiny spaces. So, when you start decorating a small room, ensure that you purchase full-length curtains. In other words, you have to technically increase the height of the ceiling by placing the curtain rod right near the ceiling. In addition to this, also make sure that you protect the curtains from touching the floor.
Decorate your room with transparent glass pieces
Pieces that are visually appealing and consume less space will work best for a small room. So, make sure when it comes to decorating your room you place mirrors on the wall. In fact, you can even place transparent furniture like a glass coffee table in your room. Pieces like this will also make your room look bigger.
Note: Pieces that are visually appealing and capture your visual attention do not require adjustment. You can place them in any corner of the room and they will still appeal to the aura of your room.
Utilize hanging decor items
The beauty of hanging material is that it catches your attention and forces you to look at the point of hanging. This is why most interior designers use this technique while decorating tiny rooms. In fact, there is a science behind this concept. If you hang a piece of lantern, fixture, or a plant from the ceiling, your eyes will automatically move towards the ceiling and make you feel like the ceiling is really high. But wait let me tell you a secret, this trick will work best for people who have smaller roof spaces.
Always remember that just because you have a small room doesn’t mean that you have to accept defeat on the decorating front. You can always use techniques or to be precise aforementioned designs to change the visual appeal of your room. So, how about creating a fitting illusion of maximized space?
