15 Tips to Make a Small Room Look Bigger
1. To gain volume: draw attention to a decorative object
Ultra decorative pendant lights, a coloured wall section, a giant sticker … Make a diversion! Attracted by a decorative bias, the gaze does not focus on the lack of volume of the room.
2. Wallpaper to add depth to a room
In a rectangular and narrow room, bring an impression of width and depth by placing an XXL pattern wallpaper or an original colour on the narrowest wall while the others will be left in white.
3. Clear soil, a good option for enlarging a room
Do not neglect the ground, it also participates in the perception that we have of space. Prefer them clear or add white or greige carpets.
They have the advantage of reflecting light and focusing the gaze on a specific point of space, Which also helps in making a small room look bigger.
4. More space thanks to glass partitions
Opt for glass-like glass partitions to paint in white rather than black to better blend with the walls and increase the effect of transparency.
An excellent solution to bring light into a blind area, to separate a kitchen from a living room, an office area from a corridor.
5. Opt for mirror furniture
Multiply the mirrors. However, be careful not to cover an entire wall with glass: the disorder of the room will be reflected and multiplied. A good option: mirror furniture that gives depth to spaces.
6. Choose low furniture
Prefer low furniture, sideboards, sideboards, sofas and even bookcases or shelves they take a lot of space which we don’t want, we want a small room to look bigger, not smaller.
So not only will you create a cocoon effect, but you will avoid blocking the gaze. You will install an impression of lightness and fluidity.
7. Frames on one wall to enlarge the space
Rather than scattering pictures or posters on all the walls or installing them in the window frame, group them on a single wall section.
The idea? Avoid the feeling of crowding and let the gaze circulate.
8. Bet on white to enlarge the space
Use white from floor to ceiling: the boundaries disappear; partitions, ceiling, and parquet merge into each other.
9. To save space: do not clutter too much furniture
Do not multiply small pieces of furniture that give the impression of clutter. Better a beautiful piece, even a large one.
Prefer seats without armrests and sleek wired structures so as not to saturate the space.
10. At home, choose the lightest colours
They give the impression of enlarging the volumes. To unify the decor, also favor light colours in the choice of furniture.
Then warm the atmosphere with cozy materials: wool cushions, thick rugs, etc.
11. Play with perspectives
To play with the perspectives and let the light circulate, do not mount the partitions to the ceiling, use small cleats for the plinths, prefer full height doors or a hanging bookcase, etc.
12. Brightness: essential to enlarge the space
Even painted in bright, cheerful tones such as yellows, windows and door frames will attract less light than if painted white.
13. Smart storage for a larger space
As soon as possible, integrate the storage in the structure of the room, prefer a dressing room all along the wall rather than a Norman wardrobe.
14. Between the ceiling and the wall, create a white drop
If you do not have a good height under the ceiling, cheat by creating a white drop from the ceiling to the wall about 30 cm, that is to say, 10 cm more than a traditional cornice. The impression of height is then very clear.
15. Sliding doors: an asset to save space
Prefer sliding doors, they allow partitioning without being constrained by the space required to open a door.
