You just don’t need feel restricted
When you start planning to decorate your newly bought home, the first thing that comes into your mind is the fact that you’d want it to be just like you’ve always wished for. People with a desire to decorate and renovate their homes every now and then, feel a little restricted when their home is not as big for them to channel their inner designer and experiment with their aesthetics. Decorating and designing a small space can be tricky but it is as exciting as designing a big living space. Here are some basic and easy tricks, for your small space décor which can satisfy your urge to make your home look big and perfectly reflective of your own taste.
Emulsion can become illusion
There exists a good rule of thumb to make your not so spacious room or apartment is to paint it in colors which highlight and create a capacious feel. There are certain colors that can subdue a large area, making it look suppressed and small. However some other colors with a bright and airy feel can make your space look big. There are however no limits to choosing colors for your room or apartment to make it look larger. The best thing to do would be choose a color palette of your own choice and imagination. Creating a focal wall may sound clichéd but yes this trick has always worked for small spaces. What most people think is that bright colors can make areas look small and dull tones are actually what you need, just reverse this rule and you will get what you want.
Furniture placed appropriately does the trick
What people normally believe is that less furniture can make your house look big or small. That’s not true; properly arranged furniture does the trick every time. However, you should choose furniture that doesn’t look like coming up to your face when you see it. Also, placing your sofas is an art you should know. Color in furniture is also a key element to bring life to your little space.
Look for portable furniture that can serve the purpose of two or more furniture items. There are different kinds of furnishing material available in the market that’ll make your room stand out. Remember one thing; do not buy anything that ultimately compromises on your comfort like buying a fancy spring mattress when you can easily buy one of the coolest mattress available made up of foam, to make you feel relaxed would be a better option. Nonetheless, any kind of decorative or sprucing up thing in your bedroom mustn’t compromise on your relaxation.
How about for some accessorized distractions?
There are so many ways of making your home look comparatively bigger and the best way to deal with not so spacious rooms or other spaces is to create distractions. If you think a particular part of this space is what creates this tiny-esque feel, then use this part to create a diversion. You can use an attention grabbing painting or a big mirror to make it feel and look roomy. Find accessories you can use to create multiple illusions in every part you need.
Small spaces can be turned deep
You can certainly make your small space look bigger and when it comes to choosing accessories, furniture, flooring, colors or even appliances for a little space, look for things you can actually use and which can create an element of depth. Wood has always been an all-time favorite for most designers but wood is not something that can work with every size. Find options that wouldn’t overhaul the entire area but still manage to make things look detailed and deep. A mirrored wall can do wonders to make your house look big.
Proper enlightenment is so vital
A well-lighted house, specifically sunlight has the ability to make small spaces appear large. A room where windows pour in light from every direction will naturally look big and wide. To add more dimension to your space, create an enlightened illusion by using curtains or other window coverings which lets light enter freely. A space that is airy and filled with light is all one needs to give that enlarged touch to your tiny yet homely living space.
One can assume that the application of these tips can save you for turning your small home into a cluttered doll house with everything stuffed in it. Big or small, give this little comfort zone of yours, a personalized touch. Have fun decorating!
