If you are renovating or decorating your home and you are finding that you have smaller spaces to work with, then there are many different ways you can decorate the room to make it appear bigger than it actually is while maintaining its stylish aesthetic, comfort, and functionality.
Choosing the Right Colors
Choosing the right colors is one of the first things to consider when trying to make a room appear larger than it actually is. White is one of the most common colors to use that will make the space feel bigger and more modern. Yellow is another color that does the job because of its ability to reflect light and creates a softer space than you would have by using white.
Cool blues and cool greens are two more color choices that can not only make the room appear bigger; they can also create a brighter and more open space with more depth. Adding white to the baseboards and the molding will make the color pop and add even more dimension to your small space.
Choosing the Right Fabrics
When it comes time to purchase the fabrics and other materials for the space including rugs and pillows, it is important to choose items that have a smaller print or are just solid colors. The solid colors will help unify the space and make it feel larger and not small and cluttered.
Mirrors and Accessories
Finally, adding a few mirrors to the smaller space will create the illusion of a larger room because the mirrors will reflect and make the room appear bigger than it actually is. You can also leave some empty spaces throughout the room because these small and empty corners can make the room appear bigger as well. You do not have to worry about filling the room with accents and accessories. In this case, less is more.
