Fantastic Ideas To Make Your Apartment Look Bigger Than It Is
Apartments are excellent if you prefer modern, urban living to a suburban lifestyle. The problem is that many contemporary apartments tend to be quite small. You should learn to make the most of the space. There are loads of easy tips and hints you can use to change the way you view your home. After all, you need to make the most of your apartment so that you can truly enjoy it.
Make space for your furniture
Some people think that cramming all the furniture against the wall is the best way to make the room look larger than it is. Well, it isn’t. In reality, that just makes the room look tiny. If you look at chic corporate apartments online, you will see that they tend to have spaced out furnishings. This trick makes the rooms look attractive and spacious. Try it and you’ll see what a massive difference it makes to your home.
Use bright, light colors
Of course, if you paint the room dark colors, it will look dingy. That is the last thing you want. You should make sure that you use bright, light colors. You might want to opt for pastel tones, which tend to look quite feminine and attractive. You could also use a feature color to highlight certain aspects of your home as well. This technique will mean that your apartment always looks inviting and cool.
Paint the ceiling of each room
If you don’t have much space, you should use the height of your apartment. If you are lucky enough to have tall rooms, you should draw people’s attention to it. If you paint the ceiling of each room in a slighter darker color than your main color, you will find it draws people’s eye. That means that people will start to notice the height and size of the room. This hint will help when you try and sell your house as well, and so it is well worth a shot.
Put shelves high on the wall
While we are on the subject of making the most of your room height, you should try this trick too. Of course, everyone needs storage and shelves. Unless you want a cluttered home, you need to make sure that you install amble storage. One of the easiest things you can do is install some shelving high up on your walls. It might sound like rather a bizarre idea, but it will work. You will find that the shelves make people look up and see how vast the room is.
Use stripes in your decor
If you’re into optical illusions, you should check this one out. Stripes make things look longer (or bigger) than they are. That means that if you use them in your home decor, you can make your rooms look more spacious than it is in reality. You might want to paint a striped wall or even a massive rug. Black and white stripes tend to work quite well for this purpose, but, of course, you can use any color you like.
Get loads of mirrors for the walls
Of course, one of the quickest ways to make your room look large is to use mirrors. If you don’t have any mirrors in your home, what are you doing? By reflecting light around the room, you can make sure that the space looks incredible. You will need to think about where you need to place the mirrors. That way, you can make sure that the apartment space looks massive. Easy.
I hope these tricks and hints help you when it comes to revamping your apartment. Let me know what you think of them!
