Living in a small home or apartment does not mean that you cannot have a stylish and comfortable home and that you fell limited when it comes to options of designing your home. There are several ideas that you can use to make your home, particularly your living room, look larger and also make use of every space you got. Here are some of these ideas.
Choose soft and light colors on the walls, such as light blue, yellow, and other pastels. They will make your small space look bigger.
The same goes for the flooring, choosing light hardwood for the floors will look great in a small space and it will beautifully match with your light-colored walls. However, if you live in a rented house or in an apartment where you are cannot change your flooring, then apply the same principle on the carpets. Choose carpets that are in light shades.
Fabrics can also play a role in making your living room look bigger. For example, if you chose bulky curtains that blocks light then it will immediately make your room look smaller. Instead, choose decorative shades or blinds, or you can use sheer panels or lightweight drapes. Hang them several inches above the actual window, and choose panels that are longer in length, and that will make your room appear taller and add visual space.
As for furniture, it can either help create space or enclose a space. Choose furniture that gives you storage options. For example, choose a coffee table that has multiple drawers underneath, or an ottoman that opens up with storage space inside. This will help you to keep your room clutter-free and add extra storage options without adding more furniture.
What can also help you with your interior design is choosing the right art piece because it draws the eye to something interesting, and away from other areas of the room you may not want to focus on. For example, you can use an abstract art piece or a unique sculpture.
