Small spaces can have a negative connotation associated with them, but the matter of the fact is you do not need a bigger bedroom. We seldom spend time in our bedrooms for reasons other than sleep. But, if you are still unimpressed with the space you are lacking, we have created six easy tips to help you make it look bigger than it actually is. Let’s take a look!
Simple Tricks to Make a Small Bedroom Look Bigger:
The Dark Side.
For years, you were told to avoid dark colors in small spaces, but we are here to tell you otherwise. Using a medium to dark paint color inside your room helps to make the space look bigger than it is. The darker hues make it difficult to visualize where the room ends, thus making it look bigger.
Cue The Curtains.
When selecting your curtains, you want to choose one that is the same color as your walls or two shades darker. When you do not have contrasting curtains, it will help the room flow better and look bigger visually. Also, you will want to hang your curtain rod just two inches below the ceiling’s line and let the fabric hit the floor.
Bare It All.
In recent years, design experts realized that bare floors could make a room look more visually open. In essence, not covering your floors with small area rugs can help to make the room look bigger. If you do decide to incorporate an area rug, you want one that is big enough to cover the entire room. Of course, rugs help to add warmth and coziness to a space; therefore, some homeowners may be keen on the idea of adding one.
Let There Be Lights.
Every photographer knows that good lighting can make or break a picture; the same goes for your bedroom. To help make the room look more visually pleasing, you will want to feature good lighting instead of a dull, dim space. A dark space can make the room feel small and unwelcoming. Light it up by incorporating more lights around the room.
You will want to limit your pattern-use in a small space. Of course, you can incorporate patterns here or there, but it is essential to avoid over-use.
Clear furniture or furniture with mirrors as an accent can work wonders in small spaces. The clear furniture legs will help to make the room look bigger and mirrored furniture helps to reflect light throughout the space.
