by - September 18, 2015

Hello! hi, bloggers.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Love you all..heheheh!

Today, I would like to discuss about 10 quick ways  to decorate your small house.Yeah, your small apartment  / terrace house! Small spaces can be a challenge to decorate.  The wrong color can make you feel like in a caves, too much furniture can feel chaotic, and the wrong patterns just feel too busy.

Do you know,narrow spaces can appear wider by using paints in a lighter color. When choosing paint, consider not only the wall color but also the color for the trim. To ensure that the narrow hallway does not feel claustrophobic, choose colors for the door trim that recede, rather than stand out against the wall colors. The idea is to visually create a more spacious walkway.

(1) Colors That Create Space

Is it a good idea to use dark color for small room? Dark paint or light paint in a small room? It's a designer's ultimate debate. But these five pros prove that picking a paint color is like choosing a type of ice cream: You can't go wrong as long as you pick what you like!Don't be afraid to bring color into your small bedroom, where you can use it to create a cozy or soothing retreat.

Any light shade of color will increase the feeling of space. White is standard but not the best choice because it shows all scuffs and hand prints. Light greens and blues have the most calming effect on people. Take a look on this color pallet:

(2) Clever multifunctional furnishings

Don't place too many pieces of furniture in a small space. A love seat may work better than a full-size sofa depending on the size and shape of the room. Pushing furniture up against the wall makes everything look and feel cramped. Even just few inches in between the wall and your bigger items can make the space look more open and don't forget to make use of hidden storage and multi-purpose items.It's a good thing if you can put some multifunctional furnishings in your room.

If you want to buy a sofa for your living room, use this tips :Instead of a sofa with a skirt or boxy chairs, bigger pieces with exposed legs are perfect for a small space. Show off those legs!

(3) Create the illusion of wide space by usage of mirror.

Placing a mirror across from a window is the best way to reflect light and make the room feel larger.They not only reflect images, they reflect light and color.Another trick is to use mirror tiles to mirror an entire wall.Your room will appear to double in size. Good lightening effect through the mirror will reflect the room is bigger than its original size.

(4)  Lighting techniques.

Lighting is a key element in opening up a space.Take advantage of natural light as much as you can, which will open up your space.By allowing natural light to flow freely inside the room, you will be surprised at how this will open up the interior and make it look larger. Make sure window coverings are sheer, or are pulled back, to bring more light in.

If you do not have a lot of natural light, you can add some creative lighting effects.Lamps will bring in special color and focus attention.Here are some strategies to make your space appear larger with light:


(A) Light the Beyond the Room:

In a narrow hall, think about lighting an object beyond the space, such as a staircase, half-landing or a feature under a staircase, to draw the eye to this area and create a more open feeling.

(B) Light Two Opposing Walls:

Room can appear wider by lighting two opposite walls to make the other two unlit walls appear darker, thus giving the illusion of a broader space.

(C) Uplight the Ceiling and Walls:

Uplighting a room provides a more diffused light and increases the feeling of volume and airiness.  For effective uplighting,  the light source should not be too close to the ceiling but it must be above eye level to avoid glare.Don’t install uplights in a room with low ceilings. A better solution would be recessed floor uplights concealed by a piece of furniture In a sloping ceiling such as a loft, a more diffused uplight works, such as a low-level light with frosted glass.

(D) Light the Corners of a Room:

In small, low spaces, it's recommends putting narrow beam uplights in the corners of the room, either recessed uplights or small portable lights behind an object. Always provide enough sockets in the corner of the rooms for lamps and plug-in lights to uplight corners to add dimension.

(5) Pattern Play

(6) Wall-to-wall storage

Consider adding floor-to-ceiling or wall-to-wall storage. This trick will expand how high your ceilings look, plus it’s a great way to add storage.An added bonus is that high-mounted shelves and storage compartments will make the room appear taller – just make sure they are in light colors so that they don’t provide too much contrast and cut the walls.
