Space is very crucial for your home. If you lack it, it will never feel like you are home. But it is not always possible to get the space you want in your home. With more people putting up homes, space is becoming a rare commodity. But it does not have to be real space to make your home feel big. You could use the illusion of space to your advantage and achieve your space needs.
Out of the experts’ secret box, these are bedroom ideas to make your home look bigger:
Use light color on the flooring
For the color scheme on your flooring, go for a light theme. If you cannot remove your entire dark wood floorings, you should buy light colored rugs to make your bedroom feel bigger. This is an old trick that homeowners use to make their home space feel big. And does not have to cost much you pull it off.
Clear the clutter
With so much stuff on your bedroom floor, it will feel stuffy and suffocating. You will never feel your home big enough. If you want to achieve the illusion of space, get all the unnecessary stuff off the floor. You can install a cabinet to keep them. With clean and clear floors, your home will feel big.
Make use of the vertical space
You may not have much of floor space, but you can for sure compensate that with the vertical space. Put up cabinets that stretch from the floor to the ceiling. You can have a few decorations using the vertical perspective. At the end of it all, you will take away focus on the small floor space and instead see the vertical opening.
Use more mirrors in your bedroom
A big-sized bedroom could use one large mirror. But with a smaller room, you can have more mirrors. Have a mirror over the dresser, one on the closet door and another over the wall. With more light, you will see your room getting bigger.
Keep the same treatment for the wall and windows
With a large room, you can contrast the window treatment with the wall decoration. However, a smaller room will appear even smaller if you use this old trick. To create some sense of space, match your window treatments to the walls.
Keep away furniture
Apart from your bed, you should keep off other kinds of furniture. With a bedroom filled with furniture, you will always have a problem with space. Take away all the furniture from your bedroom. Have some space to dress up and walk around your room. If you have to, only keep furniture that leaves open space with their legs.
It does not have to be actual space that will make your home feel bigger. Getting creative with a few aspects will give you the illusion of space. It does have to cost a dime to achieve that. You can do most of the ideas on your own to give your bedroom the feeling of an open space and your home will always feel the right size.
