Here are 5 easy tips to make your home look and a feel bigger:
- Paint your room with bright colours
Colour has the unique magic to change the way we look at any room and with the right selection, you can set the perfect tone for your home. Use bright colours like white, beige, and monochromatic schemes of greys that are more reflective and enable your eye to travel continuously around the space. Accent walls are another solution to make a room look bigger, creating an optical illusion and drawing the eye to a single focal point.
- Open up your space with lighting
Lighting can change how a person feels about a space. Any room will look bigger if it’s well-lit, either by natural light or artificial lighting. You can install large windows to bring natural light into your room.
- Use mirrors to create the illusion of a bigger space
Mirrors are the oldest and most effective trick when it comes to creating an illusion of a bigger space. You can place a large mirror opposite or beside a window that can reflect the natural light all over the room. The bigger the mirror, the brighter and larger the space will appear.
- Get multi-purpose furniture equipped with storage
Heavy furnishing can quickly overrun a small room, making it feel off-balanced, overcrowded, and unattractive. That is why decluttering is important because the fewer the objects in a room, the airier it will feel. For this, you can use multi-purpose furniture equipped with storage that is perfect for a small home.
- Use drapes to provide an instant height to your room
Not everyone has the luxury of having a French window, but how about creating the illusion of having them. Using drapes that drop down from the ceiling but end a little above the floor can provide an instant height to your room. Consider using breezy and lightweight fabrics, which offer an airy touch.
All these décor ideas mentioned above are easy to incorporate and ensure the best results. The next time you invite your friends over, these tricks will make them wonder how you managed to make your home look bigger than its actual size.
