#22 HOW TO MAKE A SMALL ROOM LOOK BIG.

IDEAS FOR MAKING A SMALL HOME/ROOM LOOK BIGGER.

Do you feel that your home is lacking space for your larger than life aspirations and desires? If yes, read it on. You all must have seen a painting at least once in your life. It’s possible for an artist to fit mountains on a small canvas. One message is clear here. The canvas remains the same, only the imagination expands. That’s how creativity is born. This brings us to the Second message. Imagination and Creativity are independent of size or space. Your homes, whether big or small, are canvases on which you can unleash your creative outlook. Here are some crafty ways which can make small spaces appear large. Following these, you may create an illusion of a big home without actually increasing the area.

TOP 10 ARTFUL WAYS TO MAKE A ROOM/SPACE APPEAR BIGGER.

I. DE-CLUTTER

It basically means to clean off the mess. The things that you don’t really use are meant to be dumped or donated to make some extra visible space. This will automatically and literally give the picture of a big space. De-cluttering also provides an ease of vision which implies that the eyes can easily move around the space with least possible distractions. The best way to de-clutter is to throw away all those things that you haven’t used in last 6 years.

II. MIRRORS

When it comes to making a space bigger, you can always count upon mirrors. Mirrors are super versatile and functional as there are 100’s of things you can do with mirrors. Mirrors reflect light which gives the illusion of large space. Whether you hang one or place it or create a wall art with many mirrors together, it’s all up to you. Whatever is outside the mirror is reflected inside it. This explains quite how the mirrors would serve the best in small places.

III. STRIPES

This is another brilliant illusionist. If you’re painting your homes or are up to a renovation, consider applying striped patterns on the walls. For narrow spaces, try having horizontal stripes and for spaces with low ceiling or less height, go for vertical stripes. Either way, stripes are the best friend of small spaces. Another interesting way to incorporate stripes in your home is to have the upholstery with striped pattern on it. Also as a hot tip, it’s suggested to keep your curtains and sofa covers lightly patterned. Heavy prints and patterns give the clustered image. Stripes have come quite trendy and chic these days. At Impulse Luxury we’d recommend you to go for the Unusual always.

IV. THE CEILING COLOR

This is the super tricky one. All you have to do is continue the wall color onto the ceiling. This breaks the division between the wall and ceiling. When there’s no breakage visible one can not make out where the wall ends and from where the ceiling has begun. Ultimately, you have an unending span of a single color which gives the illusion of big space.

V. SCHEME OF COLORS

Keep the general scheme of colors neutral or light. Light colors reflect more light while dark colors absorb light. Hence, go for the neutral, pastel tones the next time you are painting you home. Similar can be your choice of upholstery. If by chance you’ve already got dark colored walls, the effect can still be neutralized by a light toned upholstery.

VI. REDUCE SOFAS

Judge the seating requirement and accordingly keep the sofas. It is not compulsory to have a whole set of sofas. A single 3-seater sofa is enough in a small living room and you can comfortably avoid the other two single seat sofas. Instead of those single sofas, go for some trendy and quirky chairs. Chairs are really great space-saving options. Have a look at our suggestions below. These chairs come in a wide range and variety.

VII. WINDOWS REPRESENT LIGHT

When you’re dealing with a small space, have large windows facing the sun. A small room with little windows would resemble a prison cell. We don’t want to be imprisoned in our own homes. The second rule says never hide windows behind dark curtains. Let the daylight come in as much as possible. Instead of regular curtains, you can have sheer curtains or blinds. The more daylight would come in, the more illuminated the house would look. It’ll make your small space look bigger.

VIII. BRING IN THE LIGHT

Lighting is basically the lifeline of a small space. Lights play a big role in enhancing the visibility which makes the living space two times bigger in appearance. Have large chandeliers in the living room or pendant lights hanging right above the dining table in small spaces. The motive is to increase the intensity of light so it’s better to have low hanging lights or more table lamps. If you are hanging a pendant light, hang it as low as possible so that it lights up all the area around it. Another way is to have floor lamps which come in thousands of shapes, materials and sizes.

Want to have maximum out of your small space? Go vertical in every way possible. Vertical is just a shape reference which can be applied to shelves, mirrors, wardrobes, windows, etc. Vertical things occupy less space while being super functional. Try out these unconventional pieces and designs for maximum utility of your available space.

X. YOUR ROOM IS BIGGER THAN YOU THINK

Curtains serve a lot more purposes than you would imagine! In order to make your room appear taller, hang the curtain rod higher than the actual height of the window. The curtains beginning right from the ceiling give an impression of long walls. Another variation of curtains is to hang only one curtain on an entire wall instead of hanging two or three curtains on a single rod. Single curtain running wall to wall can make the wall look wider.
