If you have a problem with your room, or you want to make your room look big. Here are ways and mistakes that you need to know about.
First we will discuss how to make the room look big.
Space expanding approaches
- Use a focal point
This first technique is definitely one of the most important rules for great room design and that is use of a focal point.
Focal points serve multiple purposes such a helping you to :
- more easily organize room design
- help you create a “wow” moment
- distract from size of the room
One of the best focal point opportunities for a small is the ceiling, so that it draws your eyes upward and helps you to emphasize the vertical space.
- Always Think Vertically
For example, when hanging curtains or drapes hang them high and wide for an average height ceiling meaning no more than nine feet or two seven meters, you want to hang them within a few inches of the ceiling or crown molding also be sure to hang the inside edge of your curtains or drapes at the edge of your window to maximize daylight in your room.
And perhaps interestingly using window coverings that are the same color as your walls usually a provide higher and designer look.
Other ways to emphasize a room heights is to use :
-tall plants or hanging plants
-built-in bookcases or taller arragement of open shelving
- Full Lenght Mirrors
Use of full-length mirrors, really any mirrors.
Here are the ideal tips and locations for placing a mirror :
- Designer often use them in a location where -you would typically have a window but dont.
- Mirrors placed opposite window also help bounce natural light around a room
- behind a piece of furniture suchas behind a chair or table, it will actually provide the illusion for another room behind that piece of furniture.
One important point do be thoughtful with your mirror placement, so you aren’t reflecting a problem area in your home.
- Seating of walls
Keep your primary seating away from your walls. It seems to be instinctual and so common to want to push the sofa and chairs up against the walls, but floating your seating even just 12 inches or 30 cm or so, will make a big difference in how big or small your room feels.
Now it’s a mistakes you should know and be aware if you want to make your room look big.
- Too small furniture
The first mistake is too small furniture for their space. You should avoid filling your small room with small pieces. Now that said, you can’t obviously use a high number of large piecesin small room, but you can use 2 larger pieces in each room design.
- Too much clutter
Inadvertently happens in many small homes is that every surface eventually gets crowded. Small homes often pose significant storage challenges. If you don’t want your home to feel smaller than it is. It’s extremely important that you minimize clutter and avoid.
- Single light source
When you use single light source such as a flush mount light it’s typically not adequate lighting for the entire room.
Not properly measuring their space before purchasing a large item such as a piece of furniture or a piece of artwork. Obviously smaller homes generally means smaller rooms, and more chances to make mistakes by purchasing pieces that just don’t fit.
So, these are the four ways the room looks big, and the mistakes of room. I hope this is very helpful and useful for all.
