Making Your Room Appear Larger


Visitors: 187

If you have a small room in your home you know that it can be difficult to decorate. It is just hard to get over the small size. If you are having this problem you should read this article which will give you some quick tips to help you make that small room look much larger.

The first tip and the most common way to make a room look bigger than it is is to paint the walls a light color. Lighter walls reflect more light and give the allusion of a much larger space. Dark colors on the other hand absorb light and thus make the room look smaller than it is. So use dark colors sparingly if you must use them at all and use light colors everywhere else including the furniture. Another way to make a small room seem larger is to play around with furniture placement. Try to not block walkways to make it seem like there is more open space. Try to also put some of your larger pieces at an angle in corners. This will open up some wall space and make the room seem bigger. Play around and see what works the best for your particular room. The last tip is to use more reflective objects in your room. These will reflect more light and make the room seem larger. No you do not have to create a mirrored wall but you could add a framed mirror to one wall. This will work wonders on making the room seem much bigger.

I hope you have learned something from this article. Just because a room is small does not mean that there is nothing you can do for it. Try out some of these tips and experiment a little bit and you will come up with a solution that works for you and your room. Good luck and have fun decorating.
