5 Little Things To Make Your Living Room Look Larger
12 May 2017
The living room is the heart of a home and a place that's always alive with activity.
Everyone wants a living room that has more usable space and looks bigger. These 5 tips can help in making your living room look more spacious:
Use the right drapes
The curtains in your living room play an important role in how spacious your room looks. A tip for making a smaller living room look bigger is to use curtains that are the same colour as your wall.
This adds to the illusion of having a bigger space.
More natural light
Natural light makes a space look bigger, and opens up the way you perceive the corners in a room.
Take advantage of natural light to make a small living room look bigger. You can do this by opening the blinds or using curtains that allow light to flow into the interiors.
Use raised furniture
Furniture that is raised off the floor by taller legs, makes a room look bigger.
What's more, it's easier to clean around such furniture and this majorly helps in de-cluttering a living room to make it look more spacious.
Choose a light and neutral colour palette
Lighter colours create the illusion of more space by bouncing light off walls. Some colours that you can use for a small room are shades of cream, beige, plain white and neutral pinks.
Use fewer but larger furniture
One rule to making a smaller space look bigger is to use smaller furniture, but don't go overboard. You can create the same affect by using larger furniture, but fewer pieces of them to accentuate the space in your living room.
