Getting a little area around the home or the entire house to look bigger is possible by following a few simple steps.
- Repaint the ceiling or use a background to give the space a taller appearance
It is irrelevant whether it’s your living room, or your bedroom, repainting the ceiling or making use of background can make a room appear larger. The trick is that a brightly colored ceiling tends to make you 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 seem a bit cozier because of they absorb light. Whereas when the walls are painted with bright colors, it will help to make a room more spacious because lighting easily gets reflected around the room. Ensure furniture’s are not 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 near the wall which makes the area appear cramped.
- Use light colors on the floor too
Much like in the case of a brightly painted wall, a brightly colored floor also gives a room 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 carpet.
- Place shelves close to the ceiling to get people to look up.
You can make a small space seem bigger by placing structures in place to draw the eye to the ceiling. And one effective way you can attain this is to hang a shelf near the ceiling. It can be a book shelf or one with an array of decorations that are pleasing to the eyes. Make use of large decorative accents
Accenting a room with big 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 for a lot spacious to make room for air and light, a very simple approach to achieve this is to take advantage of a large couch instead of several tiny pieces making 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 look bigger.
- Use color coding on shelves
Organizing items on shelves according to colours makes room looked structured and coordinated which ultimately 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.
