Small space, big color! Let color guide your room makeover!
Think all-white walls and sparse furniture are the only way to make your small space look bigger? Think again! These quick and simple tips are a great way to extend your living space so you can breathe easy.
Painting walls a shade of neutral, or mixing and matching different shades, is a simple way to expand your space. Go for off-white, beige, light grey, or subtle browns. Here’s a hint: Paint your wall and trim the same color to give the effect of a larger area!
Big, sharp colors are a fun way to liven up a small bedroom. Let your color palette run wild with bright blues, bold yellows, crisp greens, and even a pop of red. By painting one or two key walls, you’ll contrast the color with open negative space to create a real sense of room and flow.
Paint your nightstand. Buy bright orange picture frames. Place a red carpet in the middle of your bedroom. By adding accents, you pull the eye towards one place and give the impression of a larger area. This works great with brightly colored furniture, too—like the Novogratz Bright Pop Metal Bed.
bedroom room and living room connected? Does your hallway open up into the living room? Try decorating two adjoining rooms in similar colors to tie your space together and make it feel larger. Pick a paint shade and carry it all the way through. Use the same accent colors. Add furniture in similar styles a tufted armchair in the living room and the vintage ottoman in the entranceway.
Sound too simple? Picking one color and going all out with it is a clever way to create depth perception and make your space look larger than it really is. Paint an accent wall dark pink, add a dusty pink bed and finish with a pink-and-white striped area rug. Or hang floral green wallpaper behind your aqua-coloured Novogratz vintage futon in a room filled with your favorite plants. Your imagination’s the limit!
