Ten tricks for making your room more spacious
Interior design is a challenging task. One of the most fascinating parts of it is making a small room more spacious and full of fresh air without a major overhaul.
We at Bright Side made a list of the things that may spoil even the best interiors. We will also share some tricks that will help you improve the situation.
Hang curtains high
If you hang curtains closer to the ceiling, the windows will seem bigger than they actually are.
A board for your fridge magnets
Fridge magnets make a kitchen look messy. If you collect them, assign a special place for your memorable collection on a wall with the help of a magnet board or magnetic paint.
Experts advise finding an ingenious way to store all of your boots, shoes, sneakers, high heels, etc. For example, you can make or buy some beautiful drawers for this exact purpose. As a result, you will get more free space, and your hall will become much more organized.
Light-colored wallpaper with vertical patterns
We know that using dark-colored wallpaper can make a room seem smaller than it is. The same is true for horizontal patterns. To make a room airy and spacious, you should choose light-colored wallpaper with vertically arranged patterns.
Towels of the same color
You may not believe it, but multicolored towels can make a bathroom seem cluttered and stuffy. Nevertheless, don’t be in a hurry to get rid of them all at once. You can always keep some of the towels until you replace them with new ones that will look better.
Glass furniture and furniture with feet
All of your pieces of furniture (a couch, a bed, a coffee table, a wardrobe, and so on) should look as if they were ’gliding’ over the floor instead of ’growing into’ it. You can achieve this effect by choosing glass furniture.
Boxes and baskets
To make sure everything is in its proper place, you need to arrange that ’place.’ For example, you can make pretty boxes, each dedicated to one type of thing: hair combs, stationery, cosmetics, your notes, etc.
A wide carpet
Many people believe that the smaller the room is, the smaller the carpet you should buy. However, this would be a huge mistake. In reality, a small rug next to your bed visually seems bigger than a huge carpet.
A magnet board for your favorite cosmetics
Though many girls have lots of different cosmetic products, some of these products are used much more often than others. To prevent them from being scattered all over the table or locked away in a drawer, you can store them on a cute magnet board.
If your room is not very big, a large chandelier will make the situation even worse as it needs lots of space. You’d be better off using pin lights along the perimeter of the room: it will make the living quarters seem bigger.
