    How To Create The Illusion Of Space In Small Rooms

    Not all of us are blessed with large spacious houses. Some of our properties are so small and compact that there is barely room to swing a cat, but if you can’t afford to move to somewhere a bit bigger, don’t worry because there are plenty of things you can do to create the illusion of space in small rooms.


    Use Light to Your Advantage

    The lighter a room is, the more spacious it will feel. Even large rooms can feel small if they are decorated in dark oppressive colours and filled with large pieces of heavy furniture. So if you are blessed with a room that is a little on the small side, you need to fill it with as much light as possible. Natural light is best, but in the event the room does not have a large window or is cast in the shadow of a large tree or building, add some extra light in the form of lamps and other types of lighting.

    Reflections of Light

    Mirrors and glass are your friends when it comes to decorating smaller rooms. Glass lets lots of natural light in and mirrors reflect what light is already there into the darkest corners. You need to make the most of what assets you have, so if a small room looks out on to a pretty garden, consider taking the window out and installing patio doors or French windows instead. You can also do this in a bedroom, although it is a good idea to build some kind of balcony or balustrade in the event you accidentally stumble through the door late one night and end up splattered on the patio.

    Illusions of Space

    Mirrors don’t just reflect light back into a dark room—they also create the illusion of extra space. Mirrors come in all shapes and sizes: from modern sheets of mirrored glass to antique mirrors with heavy gilt frames. You can mix and match mirrors to your heart’s content. Hang mirrors everywhere there is space and the room will instantly feel much larger.

    Mirrored Doors

    If you have a small bedroom, an easy way to create a feeling of space in the room is to swap plain wardrobe doors for sliding mirrored doors. Mirrored wardrobes serve a dual purpose in the bedroom—they make the room feel much larger, plus you can use the mirrors to check out your look before heading out for a night on the town. It might not prevent you from committing crimes against fashion, but at least your bedroom will seem a lot more spacious if you are lucky enough to bring home a companion for the evening.

    Pale Colours

    Small rooms look best when decorated with pale colours. Avoid using dark colours unless you want to create a sense of cosy intimacy and stick to whites, creams and any other light shades from the paint palette.
    For a light, bright modern home, take advantage of glass and mirrors to create space where very little exists. Glass doors and mirrors are an easy way to fill your home with light and space, even if it is no larger than the average shoe box.
