5 FOOLPROOF WAYS TO KEEP YOUR SPACE LOOK BIGGER!!!

Color techniques, furniture arranging and smart lighting are just some of the topics we cover in this post. We hope these ideas will inspire you.

1. USE LIGHT COLOURS and CLEVER CONTRASTS.

Light and bright walls are more reflective, making a space feel open and airy, which helps maximize the effect created by natural light. For an optimum effect, select soft tones of off-white, blue and green, and always remember that brighter rooms look bigger and more inviting. Try painting your wall trim and moldings in a lighter color than your walls. By doing so, the walls will appear farther back, making your living room seem bigger.

2. Lighting is a key element in opening up a space.

Light and bright walls are more reflective, making a space feel open and airy, which helps maximize the effect created by natural light. For an optimum effect, select soft tones of off-white, blue and green, and always remember that brighter rooms look bigger and more inviting. Try painting your wall trim and moldings in a lighter color than your walls. By doing so, the walls will appear farther back, making your living room seem bigger.

3. Well-placed mirrors can do wonders...

Placing a mirror near a window to reflect the outdoors is especially effective. Mirrors on the walls and glass tabletops will give your room a more open feel. You can also use mirrored cabinet doors to make spaces feel larger.

4.CUT THE CLUTTER!

Don’t cover your walls with a lot of pictures. One large painting works better than a group of small paintings..

When decorating a small room, create a focal point — one area or feature that will draw the eye. In the dining room, this will probably be the table. In the bedroom, it will most likely be 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).

5. MAXIMIZE YOUR FURNITURE ARRANGEMENT...

The longest straight line in any room is the diagonal. When you place your furniture at an angle, it leads the eye along the longer distance rather than the shorter wall. As a bonus, you often get some additional storage space behind the piece in the corner. Choose a sofa and chairs with open arms and exposed legs. This allows light to filter under the furniture, making the room appear airier. Glass tables also will help to maintain the appearance of an open space.
