Almost everyone knows how difficult it is to make a tiny space appear larger. It's a struggle to cram all of your essential stuff into areas with little room. Finding a sufficient, large living space, whether in a dorm or an apartment, is difficult these days, but not anymore.
You can truly make a space appear larger by strategically placing a few well-placed things and making clever design decisions. Colour schemes, furniture arrangement, mirror placement, and imaginative lighting design can all deceive the eye and make homes appear much larger than they are.
Here we list a few ways that can help you make your home look bigger than it really is!
Use light colours
We are all familiar with the reflecting properties of light colours. Light colours tend to open up space, making it feel light and airy. Try painting the room in a single colour or multiple shades of the same colour. Light colours also simplify the room, making it appear less cluttered and highlighting the architecture.
Place your furniture wisely
When you do not have access to a larger room but still need to fit all of your belongings in, all you have to do is carefully select your furniture. Choose multipurpose furniture with creative contrasts between the furniture and the walls. Built-in furniture can also be used to create more space.
Using natural light is the key!
Allowing natural light into your living area does nothing but make a place appear larger. Natural light expands an area, making it appear brighter. When you paint your room in a light colour and allow natural light to enter, the light reflects, making your space appear beautiful and large. Mirrors that are strategically positioned may also help to penetrate the light!
Add a bright colour pop
Your ceilings should be painted in a brighter colour than your walls. This technique draws your attention to the ceiling, making it appear taller. Basically, keep your interior modest and use simpler decorations to trick your eyes into thinking your room is bigger than it is.
Select small print fabrics
Choose fabrics that are the same colour or have modest prints for your decor. No matter how well-organized your area is, large-printed textiles will make it appear smaller and a little mixed up.
Create a focal point
Learn how to make a room look bigger through an established focal point — one area or feature that will draw the eye’s attention. In the dining room, that’s probably the table. In the bedroom, it’s the bed. Make that focal point the star of the room. Arrange the furniture so that focus is drawn to that area, and keep the décor in the rest of the room to a minimum (limit the number of accessories).
