Making a Small Room Look More Spacious

 

ProDec asked professional decorators give their advice on making a small room look more spacious… this is what they had to say….

I had a very small room. A wise old man told me to put a Chicken, a goat, a pig, and a cow in the room. I could barely fit in the room it was a squash and a squeeze! The wise old man then told me to take them all out again. Now the room feels massive and really spacious

I find lighter colours make the room feel more spacious. Failing that bang up a massive mirror that covers one full wall, thus making it seem twice the size. It worked for Karl Pilkington 😂

Making a small room look more spacious

Use lighter colours to create a more open space and use furniture and accessories of similar colours to absorb more into the room.

To make a room look more spacious you could do many things my advice would be light colours with a feature wall make room looks longer also mirrors and minimal item in room

Name Goes Here

Mirrors and lights   No clutter

Making a small room look more spacious

De- clutter, try a blind instead of curtains, use light colours on walls and furnishings and good use of mirrors.

Nice bright colours always make a room so much bigger

Using light reflective pale colours. Advising on room layout, use of lighting and hanging mirrors, changing woodwork from dark to light, using paper with horizontal striping to give the illusion of length or vertical stripes to give an illusion of height.

A colour reflective paint, a really dark accent wall to create a tunnelling effect, a mural on the wall to add depth, well positioned mirrors to bounce light in from windows, use of metallic accessories

Use lighter colours, such as whites and off whites to make the room appear more spacious. darker colours on the walls have the effect of bringing them in, and a dark ceiling can would make it feel lower
