Everyone loves their home regardless of the size and vanity it possesses. Home is the most satisfying haven we have. But it gives more satisfaction when it looks spacious. When you know how to utilize the space you got, even the small home becomes gratifying. Interior designing and decorative approach can make a small home look spacious and elegant. Let’s have a look at some ideas to make every home spacious.
Walls and space
The wall of a home is the soul of the room. If your walls are modern then the house is modern. Any changes in the walls have a direct impact on the interior of the house. So when we need the feeling of space wall is the best option you can experiment with. By hanging a long picture or curtain in walls we can create the illusion of space. A window frame touching the floor and ceiling can also foster the feeling of space. Try mirrors in the walls which can create extra virtual space inside the rooms. Or make long inbuilt shelves which give the same virtual effect. When you need to separate the big room into multiple compartments uses curtains or thread walls instead of concrete walls.
For most of the large house, the ceilings are the least concern element for the eyes. But when it comes to the aspect of space, ceilings play a vital role. Homes having less carpet area usually has ceiling close to the floor. This may give an impression of living in a cage. It is practically hard to redesign roofs once created. But you can use the lights to resolve this problem. Artificial lights pointed towards ceilings (uplighting) can overcome the congested feeling of the room. You can also try a glass window near to low ceilings. This helps to distract the guest’s critical eyes and the natural light will give your home spacey look. By painting ceilings with light colour than walls and using non-pendant light can contribute to the spacious look. If you are fond of hanging the light in rooms use it in the side portion of rooms instead of the centre point.
The magic of colours
It is known that our brain calculates space according to the colour combinations around it. The easy way to make a room spacious is painting. Brighter colours always make the room visually larger than the dark paints. The combination of dark floor and white ceilings always tricks every eye. If you are fed up with pure white walls then consider light green or blue colours instead. And when lighter colours are used in the walls match it with curtains also, because a matching curtain blends in with the wall and makes a flawless visual effect. It is better to maintain monochromatic colours in a small space to set up the visual continuation.
Every living space faces the problem of clutter. Sometimes we store unwanted and useless items inside the rooms which steal the precious space. A protruding decorative or overcrowded shelf can corrupt the spacey look. Always try to maintain a particular distance between items inside the rooms. If there is no white space inside a room it gets hard to live in it. And cluttering items like clothes attracts dust and the air eventually becomes polluted. That makes your room virtually and physically congested.
Rather than other interior decorative flooring has a huge impact on the space of the home. A shining and stylish floor can pin one’s look down. Single stone flooring gives incomparable space to a room. The best options for flooring lie between dark and light colours. If you choose light colour flooring it will pose a better leg space. Light floors reflect colours and the room looks airy and welcoming.
But dark floors are as good as brighter ones. You can use rich colours instead of black. But remember to balance the dark tone with bright walls and ceiling.
Carpets or tiles having vertical stripes do magic in the space issue. Those stripes when coming parallel to the walls show the room as a long area. Or try diagonal tiling that helps in deceiving the eyes and make the room spacious than in real.
Most of us select furnishing materials based on the style and size of it. But when you forget the proportion of the room this selection become a burden. For small house always choose low profile furniture. Bed close to floor and sliding doors are choice that reflects modernity and space. Mounting TV on the wall and using multipurpose furniture can be tried for utilizing the space you got. Remember not to allow any furniture take large floor space in a room. Instead, personalize your little room so that the appearance makes it emotionally spacious.
