As we work in many homes and work spaces within Leeds we get asked the same question regularly: ‘How can I make a room feel bigger?’
We’ve put together 4 simple tips to help you create the illusion that your room is bigger than it actually is.
You don’t have to use all the ideas at once, try one or two and see the big difference it makes.
1. Use light colours.
When painting the room use light colours. Colours such as creams and whites will make the room feel airy, brighter, cleaner and less confined giving you the impression that it is bigger.
2. Add Mirrors.
Adding a large mirror or a couple of smaller ones will help you make your room feel bigger as they will reflect light around the room. If you don’t want to invest in a large one you could consider adding smaller ones that blend in with the room. For example you might use coasters on your coffee table that contain small mirrors.
3. Tidy up.
It’s easy over time to let clutter and every day belongings gather in a room, we’re all guilty of it especially if the children have their toys and knick nacks your lounge. Have a really good sort out of what’s in your room and if you don’t need it either dispose of it or put it in the garage.
4. Add some contrast.
If you have used tip number one and have used a light colour pallet on the walls then you might want to add a splash of colour contrast in your accessories. You might want to use lamps, cushions and even prints on the wall. Colours that work lime green, blue or even a dash of plum look really good.
