Small but perfectly formed
Want to make the most of cramped quarters? These genius decorating tricks can actually make any small room feel bigger.
Pale colours can help make a small room feel bigger
Dark colours are a no-no in small rooms. As suggested, a lighter colour palette creates the illusion of more space. Dark colour schemes, although trendy and high-impact, are best used in larger areas. When dark colour schemes are used in smaller rooms, it can create a suffocating feeling as though the walls are closing in on what is already a space-challenged room.
“Leggy” furniture makes a small room feel bigger
Opting for furniture with legs showing opens up a small space. Compared to large furniture pieces that rest directly on the floor without legs showing, which can appear too big and bulky for a small space, furniture with legs showing draws the eye upward and creates the illusion of more light and space in a small room.
