We all seem to have a space in the house that needs to be spruced up. It might be a room that is not used often or it is small and you have no idea what it is best used for. The small spaces can be hard to design because they start to feel smaller and more condensed when you start to make changes and add to them. There is great news for many of these small spaces. There are lots of tips and tricks that you can use to make these spaces usable as well as looking much larger. You want to not only use the space but have it feel as big and inviting as you can. The best way to do that is to find out what you are doing wrong and make some changes. McKay’s Painting outlines how to make a small space feel bigger and brighter.
Paint Colors to Make a Room Look Brighter
When you have a space that feels small and not usable you want to do what you can do make it look and feel larger. One of the best ways that you can do that is to use paint as a way to create dimension. The best thing you can do to make a space look larger is to use the right paint color. The paint that you choose can make it feel much larger but you need to make sure you go with a color that is light. You want to find a light grey or even a blue that is a shade that you can use through the space. You want to also think about taking the color not just to the walls but take it into the trim as well. The more you break up the space the smaller it will look. You want to use the paint color to cover as much of the space as you can.
Brighten a Small Dark Room Through Decorative Furniture Changes
Now that you have a color that you like on the walls and the trim you want to make sure that you choose the furniture that is best for the space. You want to have a hue in the pieces that will flow well with the color. This means to have things that are commonly colored and have little deviation. You also want to use larger pieces rather than many smaller pieces to decorate the space.
Paint Finish to Make a Space Look Bigger
When you choose the paint for the walls you also want to go with a finish that is best for a small space. There are several options that you can choose from when you are getting your paint. There is matte which has no shine at all. Then you can choose satin or eggshell and all the way to high gloss. The best finish for just about any space in a home including a small room is satin or eggshell. This finish will help to hide any imperfections and will avoid light reflecting from the walls as well.
