Holidays are coming, and with them guests, naturally everyone wants their house to look perfect when someone is visiting. After you repaired damages and fixed everything, the next step to take is embellishing your rooms. If you’re thinking about changing your interior design, hiring a professional designer would be a smart thing, however, if you want a little refreshment of the space, you could do it on your own.
How to make a small apartment visually larger
The biggest problem when it comes to the interior design is the small space. Even if you know exactly what you like and how would you like your rooms to look, you might not be in the position to use those ideas just because you lack the space. Designers need to combine their knowledge, vision and trending ideas to exploit the space you own the best way. However, here are a few ideas that will make your room larger and the best of all is that you can do it yourself.
If you have one room and don’t know how to exploit it the best way, the answer is a decorative partition wall. It can separate your bedroom from your living room, or kitchen from living room and it will look prestigious and light, especially if you choose the neutral color.
Even though your apartment is small, you shouldn’t be afraid to add a table and a few chairs in your kitchen. Make sure you use a little sofa or a few folding chairs instead of the ordinary ones. Also, the table should be round. Dining zone designed this way won’t make your kitchen seem small, just the opposite, kitchen will seem spacious and sophisticated.
White color always makes the rooms elegant and sophisticated, especially if everything is white. But what when it comes to the size of the apartment? Opposite to the dark colors, white color can make up for all the flaws of your apartment. It will make your rooms visually larger, which is why professional designers always recommend white walls, white furniture, light-colored doors. However, if completely everything is white, it might get annoying to you and your guests. Make sure you use a few bright colored decorations to add some accent and warmth to your rooms.
The most beautiful kitchen tiles are often large, however, if you have a problem with a size of your kitchen use small tiles. Your will visually enlarge your kitchen, especially if you choose tiles in the light color such as white or some other bright and neutral color. There’s one more advantage to these tiles in my opinion they look a lot more stylish than the large ones. You can also add some wall lighting or lighting under the upper parts of the kitchen.
Chandeliers are the best way to visually enlarge your rooms, especially if you choose the adjustable one. However, one chandelier won’t be enough to make your room bigger, and you will need lots and lots of lighting. You can use lamps, wall lighting, wall brackets, ceiling lights, everything you like.
