>Making Small Spaces Grand

>If you live in a small apartment or home and you want
to create a feeling of a bigger room there are several
things you can do. Two of the biggest things you can
do is create focal points and take advantage of
reflecting. These two things will give you a bigger
look and feel of the smaller rooms.

Creating a focal point in a small room is key when you
don’t want people noticing how small the room really
is. When you have a specific focus point the room
might be more interesting and seem a little bit
bigger.

You can do this by painting one wall in the room a
different or darker color giving your room an
uncluttered gallery effect by the use of a low hanging
light fixture and assembling artwork on the wall. This
has an opening effect on the room.

When you use reflecting to make a room bigger, you
will use things in your home that reflect such as
mirrors, furniture, metallic pieces, and things that
have a shimmer.

When these items are strategically placed throughout
the home or the room they give a feeling of light and
more space. A mirror can be placed strategically in a
room to reflect the outdoors or even a window or a
doorway which makes the room appear much larger than
it is and it brings in more light.

If you are trying to take the focus from the small
size of a room and make it look bigger then you can
take advantage of the use of reflections and creating
focal points. Mastering these two techniques can make
your home look much bigger.
