Lighten Up Your Interior Space

This entry was posted on 9th January 2011

Ever wanted a bigger living space? Well stop wanting and start getting, if a bigger house just is not an option then why not transform the living space that you already have. You really can elongate a space by using clever tactics to deceive your room into looking bigger. Here I've outlined for you a number of small cost effective steps you can take in order to make your living space appear bigger than it actually is! Flooring - By using light wooden flooring consistently throughout a downstairs space creates a sense of continuity and makes a space appear more open-plan. Alternatively you could use a light coloured subtle carpet as this may create the same effect, but not to the same extent. Walls - If you only have a small downstairs living space then it would be advisable to stay away from dark coloured walls  and busily patterned wallpapers all over, as this will only make your room appear darker and more boxed in. Instead go for a light palette of soft pastel colours. Mirror image - Add width to a small room with the strategic placement of mirrors. The most cost efficient and conveneient way to change the appearance of a room is to add a mirror. Whether it be a dramatically framed, classically cut mirror or a abstract shaped contemporary mirror, it really will change the shape and appearance of your chosen room. You see, the thing with mirrors is that they make a space appear bigger than it actually is, changing your room in an instant. Let there be light - As with your wallpaper, your windows should not be dressed too darkly. The lighter you dress your window, the lighter your room will be and so the bigger the space will appear. Using contemporary light plain roller blinds fabrics like the Controliss Oscuro Cream roller blind, this will block out the street lamps at night, but will appear bright enough in the day. Alternatively you could go for our Textura roller fabrics for a cooler effect. So there you have it, four simple ways to make your living space appear bigger, good luck!
