When we talk about living spaces, it often seems that the one rule is “the bigger, the better”. However, small rooms, hallways and even bedrooms offer special cosiness.
They can serve you as your special place for rest, book reading and relaxation. If the interior is well designed and a lot of attention is paid to every detail, small spaces can be so beautiful that you don’t even notice its size. If you want to make your bedroom, bathroom or any other space in your home visually bigger, you should start by picking the right color theme. Let’s talk about finding the right color for making those small places bigger and better.
Even though for some this kind of interior transformation is small and pretty easy to make, others might find it rather difficult. Many of them are not able to imagine the exact effect they would like to achieve in the interior they are transforming. Or, they simply can’t decide what kind of room would actually satisfy their needs. And there it is! It’s the very first question to ask yourself before buying any wall paint: what kind of room would I feel comfortable in? What am I going to use this room for? You might be planning to decorate your office space, but you’re actually going to spend much more time reading in it, or sewing or just napping on a comfortable chair. In that case, you certainly shouldn’t pick all the cold colors and combine them with metal minimalist chairs.
You should also consider that some of the colors look different in day and night time. For example, some shades of orange can be beautiful when a discreet light of a night lamp shines over it, but in the daytime it might look a bit aggressive and hard to look at. That’s another thing you should be asking before deciding about the small room interior: what time of day will I be spending in this room?
Now, let’s talk about the exact effect you are after. Interior room design could be defined by its lightness and warmness. If you’re having a hard time handling small space and you simply want to make it bigger at any cost, you should go for airy interior. Lots of natural light, lots of light and thin materials, as little furniture as possible will give the impression of bigger space. If you’re the type of person that enjoys cosiness in living spaces, soft blankets and generally a home that feels like real romantic family homes, you should go for warm color themes and interior that says soft and inviting.
After these few steps, you’re prepared to choose actual wall paint colors and make your small room look bigger. Even if it’s obvious that light and cold colors give the impression of openness and a big size, well done interior design can also make spaces look big enough by using some shades of warm colors.
