Small Decorating Tips that Create Big Effects

Feeling like your walls are closing in on you? Chances are it’s that bulky bedroom furniture of yours or your maroon walls that should be blamed. There’s no need to cram our lives into small spaces because in fact, small is beautiful, it’s easy and practical, too! That said, there are plenty of quick and easy solutions that can make your small space look more spacious, multi-functional and attractive.

  1. Make a statement with paint

Dark colors are definitely design-friendly and can make a space feel cozy and intimate but they make a room appear smaller. So be sure to think in a color palette that’s light and neutral. Light colors reflect and multiply light.

  1. Clear out clutter

If you live in a small space, de-clutter relentlessly. Having too much stuff can make any small space feel even more cramped. Be sure to have a place for everything, it’ll be easier to keep things tidy and clean. Work out ways to get small items out of view such as using shelves, drawers or other storage units. If you keep things organized and neat, the space will feel orderly and open.

  1. Let in the Light

Try to have several lighting elements in one room. You’ll be surprised at how this can will open up the interior of any room. If you do have access to natural light, take advantage of it. This can instantly connect the room with the outdoors. Get rid of heavy draperies and opt for light, airy curtains, this can brighten up any room.

  1. Space it out

Try creating unexpected furniture arrangements. Don’t automatically shove your furniture against walls, this won’t guarantee a larger room. Try angling your bed or your sofa with a console behind it. Breathing an open space around your furniture lends the appearance of a bigger room.

  1. Use multifunctional pieces

Maximize your space by opting for pieces of furniture that can do multiple tasks. Try using an ottoman, this can serve as a coffee table and an extra seating, all at once. Or a chest, that can be used as a storage unit to tuck away books and blankets and can be used as a table, as well. It’s a simple way to streamline a room.

  1. Mirrors can do wonders

It’s the simplest trick on the book. You can try leaning an oversized full-length one against a key wall or hang a few ones to create a statement wall. You can do this technique to fill spots in your gallery wall that don’t have the perfect picture yet. This will reflect light and can add an extra layer of interest.
