Everything counts when it comes to arranging or decorating a small room. Otherwise, you will feel suffocated, confined, and uncomfortable. But it’s all about technique: knowing what colors to use, where to place your furniture, and what elements to place to give the illusion that you have a much larger space.
When you know how to get it right, there are so many things you can do with a small space in your home!
Here are some amazing ways on how to make a small room appear bigger:
Use the right colors
A small room looks best painted with light colors, which will open up the space and brighten it, as opposed to darker colors that absorb light and give it an illusion of a smaller space. A light colored wall will also make a room feel airy because it is reflective and maximizes the effects of natural light.
To take it even further, try painting the wall mold or trimming an even lighter shade than the wall paint; this way, the walls will appear further back, making the area look even larger.
Order and organize
There is nothing that can make a room feel smaller than clutter. Too many things can make an area feel cramped. Donate or throw away everything in the room that you don’t need to clear the space. You will be amazed at how bright a room can feel once it is tidy.
Consider the lighting in the room
If your room has a window, open it to let in natural light, as this opens up an area and makes it appear larger. If you don’t have access to natural light, you can choose to install lighting fixtures to illuminate the space.
Use something as a focal point
Create a focal point that draws the eye’s attention once someone enters the room, giving the illusion that the space is larger. It could be a piece of furniture (kitchen table, bedroom bed, etc.) or an eye-catching corner of the room.
Be smart with your furniture
When your space is small, you know how to avoid putting large furniture or too much decoration. Instead, opt for multi-functional furniture that is designed for small spaces. Examples of these are a sofa bed, a bed with pull-out drawers, extendable tables, or a storage chest that is used as a coffee table.
