Make a Small Room Look Bigger
You may regret the lack of space if you're decorating a small room, but there are many reasons why small is better: Small spaces are easier to decorate, easier to keep clean, and easier to organize.
These simple tips will help you make a small room look bigger without breaking the bank.
Clear Out the Clutter
There is nothing that reduces a small space more than having a lot of things. Find ways to keep collections out of sight, organized behind doors, on tabletops, or on shelves. With things well organized and out of sight, the exposed space will look neat and open.
Open the Way
When furniture and accessories block the view of a room, it seems limited. By moving furniture out of hallways, you will open up space and make it appear larger.
You can also choose small pieces of furniture, such as an ottoman, armless open chair, or low table, and place large, tall pieces along a wall rather than in an open space. If you can see the floor, the room will look bigger.
Chooser Soft, Light Hues
While dark and warm colors make the space cozy and intimate, light and cool colors make the space open and airy. For best effect, select soft blues and greens.
Use a Neutral Color Scheme
Choose colors that are in the same family and use tone-on-tone woven upholstery fabrics, textured wall finishes, and tonal curtain fabrics. Cool colors and delicate warm colors on most surfaces give a small room a more open look.
Coordinate Wall and Furniture Colors
Contrasting colors tend to divide a space, making it appear even smaller than it is. Furniture that matches the wall color is less impactful and tends to blend in with space, giving the illusion of a larger room.
Let in the Light
Any room will look larger if it is well lit, either with natural or artificial light. Get rid of heavy curtains and open windows to let outside light into space. Add more lamps or install track lighting or recessed lighting.
Utilize Glass and Lucite
When you use materials that you can see through, anything beyond will seem more distant. For example, in a small bathroom, remove an opaque glass shower and replace it with a clear frameless one.
The room is the same size, but it will appear larger. Now you can even see the wall at the back of the shower; It may be only a meter taller, but the difference it makes is dramatic.
You can also use glass or lucite for the tabletops. With a sturdy wood, stone, or metal base, the space around the table will open up the view further.
Add Reflective Surfaces
Use a large framed mirror on the wall or place a large framed mirror against the wall. You'll get the same room-enhancing effect as a mirrored wall, but with more flair.
The room and light will be reflected, resulting in a more open feel. Cover a coffee table or end table with a beveled mirror, or buy a mirrored dresser for a similar effect.
Use some large, simple furniture or accessories in place of several smaller pieces that make a small space look cluttered. With open spaces and large blocks of color, the room will look more calm and comfortable.
Keep the Upholstery Plain
Select solid-color furniture upholstery over bold plaids, stripes, or prints. Use texture for interesting neutral tones whenever possible.
Stick With Airy, Light Fabrics
Sheer fabrics allow light to pass through curtains, bed skirts, and tablecloths. If you want something other than plain colors, look for soft floral vines or simple stripes to keep the look simple.
