Easy Ways to Make a Small Room Look Larger

Picking Colors - How to Choose a ColorNot everyone has the luxury of space when it comes to owning a home. So if you happen to be living in a small one,  don’t be discouraged. There are many different and creative ways to make your living areas look larger and more luxurious even without having to spend lots of cash for renovation. In creating the illusion of space, all you need is a little touch of creativity and the right color combination of interior paints.  Below are 5 easy ways that you can revamp your space without emptying your wallet. 

  1. Choose light and neutral colors.
    Most important thing to consider when creating a larger room is the use of right color combinations. Choosing to paint your home with light, cool colors and neutral accents can give the illusion of more space.
  2. Keep a visual balance
    Another way to create a larger space is by keeping a visual balance through the use of complementary colors among furniture, walls, ceilings, floors and other room decorations. Avoid adding a brightly colored element that may overwhelm the room and reduce the illusion of space.
  3. Lighten up your room (literally!).
    Ideally, you must use several lighting elements in every room of your home instead of recessed spot lighting to create the illusion of more space. You may also avoid using heavy curtains with dark colors to take advantage of natural light especially during daytime.
  4. Add mirrored elements.
    Try adding a horizontal wall mirror, glass table, or other decorative pieces with a mirrored finished. These will not only reflect images, but also light and colors across the room. To make your room look much bigger, you may care to use a nice, long horizontal mirror as an added decorative element.
  5. Style with horizontal or vertical stripes.
    Horizontal stripes are best for widening the room, while vertical stripes are perfect for making the room seem taller. It may be a bit overwhelming to paint an entire room with stripes and the same effect can be created using a striped accent wall.
