Do you often feel uncomfortable about the fact that your room is not spacious enough? Well, with some clever décor tricks you can make even a small room look spacious. It is all about innovation & experimentation that actually creates the fantastic illusion. Read on to learn how you can do it:

Paint your walls with Light Color

Make sure the color you choose for your walls as well as flooring has a lighter shade. Light colors have a mirror effect. They’ll reflect light, making your room look spacious and airy quite unlike dark colors.

Plan the décor wisely

Instead of using several small decorative accents in your small room, it is better to use few large sized decorative vases. That will make the room look more organized & de-cluttered.

Let the ceiling be wallpapered

Wrap the ceiling with color-coordinated wallpaper or choose a design that suits the theme of the room. It will not only make the room look different but also spacious, as it will draw all attention towards ceiling thereby creating an illusion of height. Instead of using wallpaper, you may even choose to paint the ceiling of your room with a different color.

Light fixtures should be spaced out

In a small room it is not very wise to use top-down lights which emit very harsh beams. Such lights will make the room look all the more dingy by pulling in all light into a single point of illumination. Instead for a small room, it is far better to use a number of smaller sized lamps spaced out throughout the room at more or less regular intervals. In that way every corner of the room will be highlighted, creating an illusion of space again.

Space furniture away from walls

You may think it’s best to shove the furniture against the walls. You think by doing so, you’ll expose maximum floor space and make your room appear larger. But it is a wrong notion. On the contrary, tricky angling of furniture and revealing some space between furniture and the wall at the backdrop could actually make your room appear spacious.

Statement Furniture is an incredible trick

In a small room, using several small furniture pieces is not a wise decision. Go for single statement furniture like a couch, divan to give it a more de-cluttered, spacious effect

Rugs can function as space enhancer

Use colorful rugs to create the illusion of many small compartments or spaces within the given space. That again amazingly creates an illusion of space for a small room

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Mirror is perhaps the fastest and easiest solution to making your small room appear spacious all of a sudden. A Full-length oversized mirror or a couple of salon style mirrors installed in the room will reflect so much of light that your room will not only look spacious but also scintillating in no time.

These are some of the top measures, adopting which you can make your small room look spacious.
