You don’t have to be disappointed looking at your small living room, there are plenty of ways you can make it look bigger than an actually big room. Just follow these easy tricks into creating an illusion of big room out of a small space.
Ditch the curtains: As pretty as some curtains might be, they’re not an essential. Especially in a small space, you need all the light you can get to give a spacious effect. So ditch the curtains and go for gauzy sheer white drapes if you need cover.
Have a statement piece: Just because you have a small space does not mean you need small furniture to fill it up. Get a statement piece, probably a sofa in a bold colour and keep the rest minimal.
Keep it light hued: From your furniture to the walls, carpets and everything else. Keep everything in light tones, you could go for a white base (i.e walls) and add pastel furniture. This would give a spacious impact.
Use mirrors: Mirrors can make your room look twice the size it actually is, if placed in the right position. Use a big mirror to cover an entire wall in a way that the entire room reflects in it and see how magically it transforms your room.
Add a dash of colour: Since the rest of your room will probably have no colour, it is advisable to add maybe a dash of it to keep things from gettimg boring. The ceiling is a good place to try this. Paint the ceiling a colour that pops, maybe a bright purple or orange. It will, very subtly, make your room very fun.
Save space: By making shelves on the walls and not getting big chunky shelves you can save up floor space and add dimension to your room.
Include plants in your indoor: Indoor plants make your room look fresh and airy, place them in small clusters in corners or get a big. It will definitely add colour to your room without going overboard.
Space things out: You don’t necessarily need to shove your furniture against a wall to create space. Play with angles to create an illusion of space.
Enjoy your tiny space: Small spaces are awesome! They’re easy to maintain and less hassle. So sit back and sip on chae in your adorable little lounge.
