Small bedrooms seem difficult to furnish and remodel. Most of us know what to do to make small bedrooms seem bigger through clever placing of furniture. But have you ever thought that you could use the magic of colors with your bedroom walls, coverings and furniture to make your room seem bigger? Never fear, because here I shall teach you how to accomplish this.
First of all, use bright colors. Bright colors have what I call “the magic of reflection”. They reflect natural lights and make you think that the room is much bigger. Make sure that you match the color of the curtain to that of the walls and the bed sheets. For example, use icy blue colors for your sheets, then softer shades of blue for the curtains and rugs.
Don’t you sometimes think that the ceiling is higher than it really is? Or that one exact room in the house has a higher ceiling than the rest of the house? This is due to the magic of colors. The ceiling of that room looks high only because of its color.
To make the room look bigger use a pale color for your ceiling. White, cream and ivory give you a strong impression of vastness, and will make your ceiling look higher. Be smart using the magic of colors and paint the walls in a softer shade of the color of the ceiling.
Another color magic you could use is installing the right lighting. Different lamps create different colors of light, and will be available to work their magic when the sun is down. Do not underestimate the ability of fluorescent light just because it is artificial. Put lighting fixtures in the corners of the room so that their expanding magic becomes more potent.
There are many tricks you could use to make a small room seem bigger. So it is not just about de-cluttering the room and saving space. Using the right design and the right colors works wonders too.
