Furniture in a Small Room
Furniture in a Small Room

Have a small room to decorate and not sure what to do? We have the answers...

Q: Do you have to put small furniture in a small room? How do you make it look bigger?

 
A: This is often the first thought when choosing furniture for a small space. Often a large sofa or daybed can make a change a small room from a dingy space to a cosy space.
 
One must also keep in mind that the look of the room even when it is a small space can be changed with the way that you place your furniture, you can consult a decorator for advice on this or just ensure that the bigger items are up against walls to create an open floor space with will then also make the room look bigger.
 

Decorate the room with lovely large mirrors to create reflection this creates the illusion of a bigger space.

Don’t be shy to add a feature wall in a darker colour, in doing this the wall seems to extend further than the others again creating the illusion of a bigger space.

Be careful not the place larger mirrors opposite the darker wall as this can often defeat the object of the darker wall pushing back in the space as you will begin to reflect the darker colour and in return make the room look smaller.
