Are you looking for a cozy, intimate space? Use soft, snuggly upholstered pieces, dark, warm tones, and dramatic lighting, turning a small corner space into a wonderful private space.
Making a small space feel larger without serious renovations, some decorating changes, using color, furniture arranging, and interesting lighting, your space will feel larger.
Remove Clutter (organize):
To much stuff makes a small space feel even smaller. Once things are arranged and out of sight, the space will feel organized and open.
Move furniture out and away from walkways, you'll open up the space and make it feel larger. You can also choose short pieces of furniture like an ottoman, an armless, open chair, or a low table, and place large, tall pieces along a wall rather than out in the open space. If you can see the floor, the room will look larger.
Use Light Hues To Paint:
Dark, warm colors make a space feel cozy and intimate, light, cool colors make a space feel more open. Select soft tones of blues and greens.
Use a Monochromatic Color Scheme:
When selecting colors, use colors that are in the same color family, textured wall finishes, delicate tonal drapery fabrics. Cool colors and delicate warm colors on most surfaces give the room a larger apperance.
Coordinate Wall and Furniture Colors:
Contrasting colors tend to break up a space. Pieces of furniture are less interrupting and tend to blend with the space if they're colored to match the wall color.
Let in the Light:
Any room will look larger if it's lit well, either by natural light or artificial lighting. Remove heavy draperies and open up the windows to let the light of the outdoors into the space. Use more lamps or install track lighting or recessed lighting.
