The size of the parts of our homes is sometimes very limited and the lack of space is often aggravated by colors, furniture and accessories inappropriate. There are many tricks to “expand” a room.
Create space by color
In general, light colors or slightly saturated help “expand” the opposite of dark, saturated colors. Cool colors are pushing the walls while the warm colors closer. Before choosing a dominant color, we must consider the lighting of a room. Know the other a shade will always look darker when dry. Some hardware stores offer the opportunity to purchase samples of the chosen color to give it a try.
The frames of doors and windows should not be painted a different color because it shrinks the room. It is best to paint the ceiling and walls the same color to soften the transition between the two areas. If your ceiling is very low, it is possible to make it seem higher by painting it a different color and adding a wide band of wall color on the periphery.
The choice of furniture and their positioning
The space is easily a room feel smaller than it actually is. We therefore limit the furniture in a few key elements and will ensure they are not too massive, or that their color is too much contrast with the rest of the room. We can try different ways to position, until we found the best, but a cabinet too far from a wall will consume more space.
Avoid placing too many items on the floor. A room must “breathe” so make sure you can move about without having to watch where you walk! We can solve problems with a large storage cupboard wall with sliding doors, which eliminates the need to harmonize what is inside.
The judicious use of accessories
We can give an impression of space to a room by placing accessories in the same color as the walls and ceiling. It should however be careful accumulation of decorative! The dress of the windows should be of a similar color to the walls and ceiling should limit the number of different reasons.
The glass creates an illusion of EPAC, like a glass table for example. A large mirror in discreet, especially if it captures the natural light, create a kind of psychological extension of the room. There should ideally be only one element of great size (table, mirror, flat screen) on a main wall.
