There is usually that one room in your home which looks small and always seems cluttered with things. Try as you may the room remains to look cramped and stuffy. You must have be given tips to put up a mirror in the room to make it look bigger, but this actually makes it look worse because the mirror reflects every single object in the room. Here we give you some practical tips to make a small room look bigger.
One of the best and easiest ways to do this is by choosing a light colour scheme for the room rather than a bright or dark theme. Pastel shades, whites and neutral light colours are suitable. To complement these light shades you can also try and implement a monochromatic colour scheme for furniture, carpets and curtains. You can do this by selecting different textures and designs of the same colour to use on different surfaces.
You might have heard this suggestion before: lighting is a key aspect of making a space look bigger. Recessed spot lighting is visually appealing and is perfect for a small space. A torchiere light is great for bouncing light off of the ceiling and back down on the room. Skylights and solar tubes are natural alternatives for adding light to a room. Skylights also add to the aesthetics of a room, especially if it is a small bedroom.
Another simple way to make a room look more spacious is remove unnecessary accessories in the room. Try and accessorize to the bare minimum in small rooms, otherwise the clutter itself takes up more space. What you can do is add one large painting on one of the walls instead of a cluster of small paintings or pictures.
To make a room look bigger you should also have larger tiles. The larger the tile or pattern on the floor the larger the room will look. Most homes have small powder rooms nowadays, and even these small spaces can benefit from this tile trick.
