How to Make Home more Spacious- Ideas to be followed.
Recently a friend of mine, Malvika- an interior designer, told me that space will be always a concern no matter how big your apartment is, As per her every person have to be more creative and choose decor and furniture wisely. Colours have a great impact. She told me the tale of a couple living in a bungalow. How they use to feel cramped up in huge space.
I thought about this challenge and asked my friends ‘Are they dealing with this’?. To solve this issue I have read a few articles and got new ideas. I have implemented at my place. I’m sure you will like it too.
Here are some ideas on How to make your home more spacious.
1. Relocate Your Furniture
There are certain tips which will help you change the way your home makes you feel. Yes, you can live in a spacious home without relocating to a huge new home.
Yes, the placing and arrangement of furniture can have a huge effect on how your house looks. Keep the corners open. Float your furniture. Even if by a few inches move them away from the corners and you will see the effect it has on the visual perception.
You have to understand want you to want. Simplicity or comfort.
Tip- Don’t rush to implement all your ideas in one go.
2.Paint Your Walls
Wrong paints have the opposite effect of what you may want. Those dark colours may look good somewhere else but surely not on your walls. Dark colours often make everything look smaller than it actually is. To make it more lively choose bright colours.
Tip-Close your eyes and think what energy you want in your home.
3. Change the colour of your curtains
Yes, your curtains also have an effect on how your room may look. Dark curtains have the same effect as that of dark wall paints. Spend in light coloured sheer curtains.
Tip- If you think someone knows your taste then take help. More ideas, More solutions.
4. Choose to Incorporate Clear Surfaces
Glass topped tables and clear surfaces make a room and space larger than it actually is. Make your size is appropriate and solve your purpose.
5. Colour Coordination
It is best that all the walls and curtains in your house have similar or matching colours. They seem to make the house look bigger than it actually is. You will feel that everything is in one and your house looks way more spacious.
Tip- Think what flavour is missing, a good painting can fulfil the gap.
Remove the excess furniture and other unnecessary items in your rooms. Organise your room. keep limited things on the top.
7. Use Multi-Functional Furniture
You might be aware that some pieces become something else and can be used in multiple ways. Certain sofas can become beds and even have built-in storage spaces. Yes, they are the best when you are thinking of saving and also increasing the space.
Hence worry not if your home does no longer feel like home. A few changes and you will have a modern-looking big house without even relocating to a new location.
Tip- Keep everything in sync. Don’t mix up your style and mood.
