Small rooms can be practical and affordable to revamp but optimising the space may still be top of your list of priorities. If this is the case, let’s take a look at some of the ways you could make your small room have as big an impact as possible.
Cut the clutter
Clutter will make rooms feel cramped, so get rid of things you don’t need. Think about investing in clever storage solutions designed to maximise the space available. You can find some ideas on the Homes & Gardens website here.
Open it up
Don’t let furniture block the view into your room as this will immediately make it look cramped. The more floor space you can see, the bigger the room will look.
Whether you are replacing front doors in Worcester or painting living room walls in Glasgow, choose lighter cool colours to make indoor areas feel airy and open. The best shades are soft greens and blues.
When browsing front doors Worcester and beyond, you may want to go for a bold colour that adds to the kerb appeal of your property. If optimising indoor space is a priority, however, you want to think neutral. Choosing tones from the same family will open up the space and you can add interest with tonal drapery, tone-on-tone fabrics, and even textured wall finishes.
Coordination is key
Contrasting colours can jar and make spaces appear small. In contrast, having furniture that matches the walls, for example, will blend in and create the illusion of space.
Let in light
Well-lit rooms always look larger, whether this is from artificial or natural lighting. You can achieve this by simple measures such as replacing solid front doors with glazed options, removing heavy drapes, and getting rid of large ornaments or plants from windowsills.
Make use of see-through materials such as glass and Lucite. These make everything on the other side look further away and increase the feeling of space. Clear-coloured furniture, such as tables, can also be practical without being bulky and intrusive.
