TOP 5 BEST THINGS TO MAKE A ROOM LOOK BIGGER

 

 

1.     This may seem obvious, but many people don’t even think about it.  Buy smaller furniture.  That’s it.  If your furniture is on the large size and you put it in a room that is small to begin with, well then of course the room is going to look smaller.

2.     Declutter!  Clutter makes the room look smaller because there are no empty planes.  Everything flat surface has something on it or pushed up against it, like furniture.  To give the room more space, leave space.  Leave one wall free of any furniture or artwork.

3.     No heavy drapes or blinds.  You want to let as much light into a small room as possible.  If you can get away with no window coverings that is ideal.  If not, a light penetrating fabric or blind will work.  Just let the light in. An unframed mirror, would be ok if it would help when there is not enough light.

4.     Minimalise.  Have one light and bright color to use throughout the décor.  Furniture, textiles, and paint should be one palette.  A splash of color here and there is great, but too many patterns and colors make a room look smaller. Mix it up with some textures instead.

5.     Paint the ceiling a dark color.  It seems counter-intuitive, but in fact, it’s quite the opposite.  As in fine art paintings, you will see how dark colors recede, while light colors seem to come closer.  Take this idea and apply it to your room.  I love a dark rich hue on a ceiling.  It adds both interest and a sense of more space.
