Getting a little area around the home or the entire house to look larger is possible by following a few simple steps. Repaint the ceiling or use a background to give the room a taller appearance
It is irrelevant whether it’s your living room, or your bedroom, repainting the ceiling or using background can make a room appear larger. The secret is that a brightly painted ceiling will make you raise your brows upwards which make the space appear big and spacious. Use light color paint on the walls
When the walls in a room are painted with dark colors, it makes the room seem a bit cozier due to that they absorb light. Whereas when the walls are painted with vivid colors, it helps to make a room more spacious since light readily gets reflected around the room.
- Ensure furniture’s are not placed closed to the wall
Making space between the wall and furniture creates the illusion of a large room; making the room look more open unlike when you put them near the wall which makes the area appear cramped.
- Use light colors on the ground also
Just like in the case of a brightly painted wall, a brightly colored floor also gives a space a spacious outlook. You can decide on a floor remodeling if you’re up for it or simply just get a brightly colored rug or carpeting.
- Place shelves near the ceiling to get people to look up.
You can make a small space seem bigger by placing structures in place to draw the eye towards the ceiling. And one effective way you can achieve this would be to hang a shelf near the ceiling. It can be a book shelf or one having a range of decorations that are pleasing to the eyes.
- Take Advantage of large decorative accents
Accenting a room with large decorations like tall vases or handmade items can get it to look large. This is because few large decorations in a room give it a thorough outlook unlike when you cramp it up with smaller decorations scattered here and there.
- Go for furniture that makes a statement
So you want the living room to be much spacious to make room for light and air, a very simple way to accomplish this is to make use of a large couch rather than several tiny pieces which makes it look a lot cluttered.
- Put a striped rug on the ground
This works perfectly in a small bedroom. Placing a striped rug like that of a zebra makes your room look larger.
- Use color coding on shelves
Organizing items on shelves according to colours makes space looked structured and coordinated which ultimately gives the room a spacious appeal.
- Boost a tiny bathroom with a clear shower curtain
You can give a small bathroom a spacious look by getting a brightly colored shower curtain.
