Who wouldn’t want to live in a spacious home? Although we all wanted to live in a larger home, this is not possible. Nothing to worry, though. If you feel like dismantling your walls to make your small space airy and open is the answer, read on and get solutions.
Make Your Room Spacious via Colors
The size of a room matters both on the visual and functional aspects of interior decoration. To achieve this, you need to pick the correct colors. Color plays an important role in making space look larger.
White can make even the smallest space look larger. Painting the walls of a tiny room in white will make it look airy and spacious. This is because white reflects light and will make the room roomier, wider, and brighter. Painting your walls in white allows you to decorate the walls in any manner you like. White colors also complement natural light, making the room brighter.
- Blue and Green
A mixture of blue and green provides depth and brightness. Like yellow, avoid overdoing it.
Calming teal or sea-foam green are excellent picks. To enhance dimension and clarity into your space, paint baseboards and moldings of your blue and green colored walls.
Another good alternative to white is yellow. Yellow-colored walls, like white, have the same space-effect in a room. Citrus shades mixed with white accents add dimension to a room. Make sure, though, that you do go overboard with this color. Pick dandelion or banana shades. Avoid neon shades.
Painting your walls in grey is another option if white walls give you that hospital feel. A neutral color, grey imparts the illusion of size. If you are selling your home and getting it ready for home staging, paint the walls in grey. Grey allows you to think of the soft summer clouds. This color allows light to bounce around the room giving the illusion of space without the glare.
- Jewel Tones
Jewel tones simulate the colors of popular gemstones, whether precious or semi-precious. These include turquoise, sapphire, emerald, topaz yellow, tourmaline green, ruby red, and amethyst. Amethyst, sapphire, and emerald are the best choices as they are lively. Deep jewel tones soften sharp corners and blend the walls, giving the room a huge look. Jewel tones are very effective in making small areas look larger, like a private secluded nook or bathroom. You must remember, however, that choosing dark colors can be risky. Picking the incorrect shade or patina can make your room look unbalanced. Asking the help of an interior decorator or painter will result to picking the correct shade.
- Monochromatic Hues
If you prefer lighter and softer hues, pick monochromatic colors like grey and white. Apply this monochromatic scheme in the room through furniture, rugs, and accents. Monochromatic colors create a clean, minimalist feel that makes a room look huge.
As for choosing furniture for a small room, pick multi-purpose items. The more functional the furniture, the better as you do not need to add other pieces. Look at the coffee table above. The Nancy Modern White Coffee Table is not only intended to hold cups, glasses, food but can function as a working desk, too. It features a pull-out tray that you can use while working on your laptop or as an eating rack plus storage for books, magazines, and other items.
By choosing the right colors and modern living room furniture, you can make your limited look spacious, brighter, and fresher!
