In today’s world everybody is starved for space. In metropolitan cities, most people, can afford to have a 1, 2 or 3 BHK. Having your own big house is a luxury and a distant dream. In spite of these constraints, you can still make your house look spacious and beautiful with a little help of your imagination. Even a one bedroom house can look beautiful and bigger, if you plan and organise the layout of things in the house.
Most of the time we take expert advice while redoing our home interiors like painting, lighting and other areas. But remember you are the best judge to understand the strengths and limitations of your house. So you can appropriately enhance the advantages while covering up the limitations of your house.
Today,let’s understand the important concepts in making our house look spacious and beautiful.
Ways to make a small room look bigger:
1. Try to create space in your house
One of the important things is to create that extra space in your house. Here is a list of things that you need to keep in mind while creating that extra space.
• Have a full length mirror on the wall. They give an illusion of extra space.
• Painting each wall in a different colour, gives a feeling of depth and freshness to each area.
• Painting in pastel shades will make the room look larger and brighter.
• Having a low seating area and furniture enhances the comfort feeling and the same can be reused as beds.
2. Declutter your house
This is the most difficult thing to do. We need to throw out anything that we don’t require. But every time you decide to get rid of something, you start thinking thatyou might just need it in the future and so we don’t get rid of anything. A good way is to ask yourself the question: Have I used it in the last 2 years at least once. And if the answer is “No” then just throw it.
3. Use appropriate space saving furniture
The choice of furniture is very important as it can enhance the look of the room or make it look cluttered and crowded. For a single person, you can use a bunk bed along with a desk for study and drawers under the bed for storage. Different varieties of sofa cum bed are very good options for a couple.Also the kitchen should have a good storage space for crockery and other kitchen utensils. It should be clean and easily accessible.
Other ways to decorate your house and make it look bigger and more spacious:
1.Proper lighting and flooring enhances the beauty of the house.
You can use soft or low lighting in the living or bedroom area and strong lighting in the kitchen and bathrooms.
Wooden flooring, marble flooring or simple carpets enhance the look of the house.
2. Use of curtain and blinds give a different feel to your house.
Use nice and bright coloured thin curtains to give a fresh feel to the house.
3. Use of potted plants
Use hanging potted plants outside the window. They give a fresh green affect on the environment of the house. Avoid using potted plants inside the house, since they will use upthe precious space.
4. Antiques and family treasures.
Use of antiques and family treasures passed down from generation to generation can enhance the unique look of your house. Some have old crockery items like artistic plates mounted on walls,beautiful hand painted vases or grandfather’s clocks etc. These will definitely add value to the living room.
5. Trophies, Medals and Mementos
You can display trophies or medals won by you or your children. This reflects your personal identity and of course you are proud to display it.
6. Books and Paintings on the Wall
Good books displayed on your coffee table or on a small shelf in the living room, will help showcase your reading tastes. A good painting drawn by your child or a collage of family photographs will add a personal touch and warmth to the living room.
7. Candle stands and Lampshades
Candle stands are highly liked by most of the designers. They are made from wood, wrought iron or any other material. Exotic candles with aromatic perfumes can make the environment soothing.
Similarly lamps and lampshades of different shapes, sizes and colours can add a complete new vigor to a dull room.
All the above are some of the ways in which you can make your house look spacious and beautiful without hurting your pocket. It is also important to note that your house should reflect your own individual personality and your comfort, and so it is important not to overdo things.
