In every household there will probably be one room which is a pain to deal with – due to the size of it. But there are things we can do in order to make this room look and feel a lot bigger than it actually does.
In this article I intend on giving you 3 very useful tips in order to make your smaller room look bigger.
In every room there will inevitably be furniture, however getting the right furniture which is fit for purpose within a room is vital when space is an issue. Far too many people kill space in a room with furniture that isn’t used and clutter up the area.
You need to think what you need, not what you want when it comes to making these rooms feel as big as they possibly can. My big tip when it comes to furniture is to look for items which are both multi-functioning and also multi-purpose.
Multi-purpose furniture is one of the greatest inventions made for small rooms, and a stylish sofa bed is always a good idea, if you need a space to look as big as it possibly can. A sofa bed is great because in the day it is a compact sofa which can be used as a place to chill out and a place to entertain guest also, but then on a night when nobody else is there, or when a guest is staying over you can transform this into a lovely comfy bed.
As far as multi-functional furniture goes things such as coffee tables which can be transformed into a desk and various other pieces of equipment is a great idea if you want somewhere to relax and complete work or study.
Another great tip which I would advise is to get furniture which is the same colours as the walls or décor. This tip will make your room look far larger than it does now due to the fact it looks like your furniture blends into the walls, this creates an illusion which seemingly will make your room feel so much bigger. Avoid dark furniture like black or dark wood as they will darken the room.
Storing things correctly
You could save so much space when it comes to storing things around your home, and having your retro collection of summer clothes in your wardrobe through the winter months in something you should think about changing.
Store your clothing in a more compact way by using tightly sealed vacuum bags, and storing them under your bed or in the garage or loft is the best way to save space when they’re not in use.
A common problem is big piles of old cd’s or magazines in the corner of a small room – this will not help whatsoever, and this can be a problem all over your home. Have a good clean out, and getting rid of things that you don’t use or need will save you so much room.
A good mirror
This is a simple technique that will make your room look so much bigger. By having a big mirror on the wall, angling towards a particular focal point within your room will create an illusion of depth that you room doesn’t actually have.
Having a mirror exposed to directly sunlight or even artificial light is a good idea, with your room looking larger due to the fact it is much lighter. Also the light is actually bounced deeper into the room, as your room now looks deeper and more spacious.
