And sometimes they don’t know that there are still some tricks for fooling the eye and making the room look bigger and wider. These tricks, of course, will not recommend us to add more sizes of the space, but in fact the tricks will only add the looks of the room to appear as if it has a wider and larger size. You will see your small space look bigger.
One of the key elements that allow us to create such illusion of greater amplitude is lighting. It is one of the key points to achieve wider and larger area, as the more the light spreads out the area the larger it will look, especially if we use natural daylight.
In order to achieve more light for the entire room, the use of heavy curtains should be avoided, and hang only blinds or lighter curtains so that the natural light of sun can flow freely into the room. If your house does not have enough natural light and you have to use artificial light sources, use a uniform light source and avoid too many shadows appear from the light.
Besides lighting, the color of walls is also a key for enlarging space. Dark colors consume lots of light, as well darkening the house. While white or yellow tones are ideal for enhancing the light, which then create a greater sense of space.
Decorating with mirrors also plays the important role in resizing the room’s appearance. Without any doubt the effect of mirrors is phenomenal as it perfect to generate more visual space, including the reflection and light produced from mirrors will make the room appear larger. So use larger mirror to enhance spacious illusion, and remember that the larger the better. Additionally, don’t forget to put them on the wall facing the window as far as possible.
Choosing the right furniture and accessories is also important to make the room more spacious. Basically, use minimalistic rule, meaning that less is really better because the more furniture and objects you have in the room, the smaller it is going to appear. As for bathroom, for example, larger tiles tend to make a floor appear less busy. In addition to the size of the tile, you can increase the feeling of spaciousness by installing your tiles with a smaller separation between them. Not to mention, also choose furniture and accessories in small sizes to reach more spacious area, as well choose bright colors that will help you generate the amplitude.
Last but not least, never ever forget that a clean, neat, and tidy room will also bring much wider and larger atmosphere to the entire room. So, make sure your room is always organized and cleaned perfectly.
