How to Make Small Spaces Grand
If you live in a small apartment or home and you want to create a feeling of a bigger room there are several things you can do. Two of the biggest things you can do is create focal points and take advantage of reflecting. These two things will give you a bigger look and feel of the smaller rooms.
Creating a focal point in a small room is key when you don’t want people noticing how small the room really is. When you have a specific focus point the room might be more interesting and seem a little bit bigger.
You can do this by painting one wall in the room a different colour or darker color giving your room an uncluttered gallery effect by the use of a low hanging light fixture and assembling artwork on the wall. This has an opening effect on the room. You do not just have to use paint, you can use tile, wall paper or anything else you can think of.
When you use reflecting to make a room bigger, you will use things in your home that reflect such as mirrors, furniture, metallic pieces, and things that have a shimmer.
When these items are strategically placed throughout the home or the room they give a feeling of light and more space. A mirror can be placed strategically in a room to reflect the outdoors or even a window or a doorway which makes the room appear much larger than it is and it brings in more light.
If you are trying to take the focus from the small size of a room and make it look bigger then you can take advantage of the use of reflections and creating focal points. Mastering these two techniques can make your home look much bigger.
