Making Small Spaces Grand
Location, Location, Location! Would you give up square footage to be near the ocean or to be living on an island? Many homeowners of oceanfront condos and homes in Palm Beach Florida made the exception of having smaller rooms so they can enjoy the luxurious lifestyle of Palm Beach. I don’t blame them! I love the island of Palm Beach!
If you live in a small apartment or home and you want to create a feeling of a larger room there are a couple things you can do. The following two things will give you a bigger look and feel of the smaller rooms.
Creating a focal point by painting one wall in the room a different or darker color will give your room an uncluttered gallery effect by the use of a low hanging light fixture and assembling artwork on the wall. This provides an opening effect on the room.
When reflecting items such as mirrors, furniture, metallic pieces, and things that have a shimmer are strategically placed throughout the home or the room they give a feeling of light and more space. A mirror can be placed strategically in a room to reflect the outdoors or even a window or a doorway which makes the room appear much larger than it is and it brings in more light.
Mastering these two techniques can make your home look much bigger.
