There are ways in which you can make a small room with limited space look much bigger than it already is. With some quick adjustments to the furniture placement and playing around with the light and colour of the room, you can maximize space in any room. Here are some ways in which you make use of these simple adjustments.
Rearrangement of furniture
When the area of space is limited, everything in the space counts. The only way you can do this is by rearranging your furniture in such a way to create more space. One of the ways in which this can be done is by placing the larger furniture close to the edges of the room and not in the middle. If you have ottomans and other smaller furniture, these can be placed away from the wall, sometimes diagonally to give the illusion of more space.
Small rooms need to be sparse
The smaller the room, the more sparse it needs to be which means that it needs to have less furniture and other clutter and only the essentials such as a sofa or a storage ottoman depending on the type of room. The large pieces of furniture will be the most necessary ones and always make sure to keep small rooms organized and tidy. One big or attractive piece of furniture can be the focal point of the room and unnecessary furniture such as smaller coffee tables and chairs will not be needed. Most small rooms also do not require wall paintings or pictures as this makes the room feel cramped.
Storage and multipurpose furniture
It is always useful to make use of multipurpose furniture so that it serves more than one purpose and helps save space. For example, a chest of drawers can be used as a living room table while also providing you with storage space for any cutlery, plates or blankets and sheets.
Furniture that is made of glass especially table tops and clear chair or table legs create more space as such furniture does not look too heavy on the eyes at first glance and allows light to travel all around without hindrance. Elevated legs in tables also make a room look bigger as it creates more space and air thus opening the space. Try as much to remove any heavy draping on windows and rugs on floors. While certain rugs with the right size and pattern can create more space, others will only make it more cramped. As more light comes in to the room naturally it will help the space become more airy and add more depth.
