You might have de-cluttered, moved furniture around and even utilized a self storage unit but still find it hard to achieve your desired space. There’s a limit to how much space we can create without compromising our convenience. This is where these tips come in.
One easy way to give a “space” feel to your room is making use of furniture, such as arm chairs and sofas, that are raised on legs. Raised furniture allows for easier movement of light into the room. This effectively creates an illusion of having more space.
The use of transparent furniture like glass tables and plastic chairs, is another great way to make your room look spacious. Furniture pieces that are transparent allows you to see the walls and floor, giving the illusion of more space than there actually is. Where as, opaque furniture, completely blocks off space from view, giving your room the illusion of being smaller than it actually is.
When buying curtains, be sure to get sheer curtains that can help elongate your room. Sheer curtains block minimal light, allowing the room to look and feel more open. Avoid the curtains touching the floor, so you utilize all the length and height of the room.
If you are a book lover, floor-to-ceiling bookcase is the best choice for your living space. Floor-to-ceiling bookcases gives an illusion of a higher ceiling. The symmetry and of the bookcase draws the eye upwards systematically, emphasizing the height of your ceiling.
