Sometimes a small bedroom can feel more like a cave than a cozy retreat. If a space devoid of natural light, an intelligent storage and an appropriate color palette, you may feel tight and uncomfortable. However, with the right techniques, even the smaller rooms can be much more functional and even appear larger. To do this I leave 6 tips to make your room look bigger.
- Built-in shelves. The recessed shelving can help you save space. The rack does not need more than 12 inches deep. Recessed bed in the middle of the shelf prevents remove much needed floor space. If you’re using built-in furniture in a small room, try to get to the roof to make the ceiling look higher and painting the wall with a contrasting color to create layers and depth.
- Allow the natural light. Avoid blocking the natural light in a small room, where the only place that makes sense for a bed is right against the window, use a headboard with metal frame, to exploit full sun.
- Place mirror on the closet doors. Use a mirror is ideal for visually doubling the square footage of your room, that is a trick that has been used for centuries. In small rooms often this means replacing the cabinets placed on doors with mirrors. The effect tends to work best when you can place mirrors from floor to ceiling and wall to wall.
- Use a sofabed. A sofa bed can help create the illusion that the room is a small living room, instead of a small bedroom that has been taken by a bed. Sofa beds are often built storage under another advantage for a small room.
- Paint the ceiling. Paint the ceiling the same color as the walls can help erase shadow lines that visually define a space. A white roof against a dark wall immediately shrinks space – the eye can perceive the size of the room immediately. When the walls and ceiling are the same color, it is harder for the eye to say that the parameters start and end of the room so it makes the room look bigger.
- Hanging lights. Hanging lights do not take up space on the nightstand as do the bulky lamps. Hanging ceiling lights creates a focal point while providing lighting on each side of the bed. Just remember to measure carefully so that the lamps hang low enough to not have to get out of bed to turn them off and the light is annoying.
