After some time, your bedroom may seem to have gotten smaller because of the extra items, clutter and old arrangement of fixtures. Making a few changes can effectively create the illusion of a much larger space. You do not even have to spend much or hire an expert to get the results you need. Here are some tips for you to ponder on.
1. Get rid of the clutter. Check the items in the room that tend to occupy so much space but are not used very often. Take out the garbage and locate things that are very unattractive to look at, even if these are your favorite collectible mantel clocks. De-cluttering your space can greatly improve the appearance of your bedroom, thus providing more space for relief and leisure. Even some aspects like very heavy curtains on small windows can give a very overwhelming appearance. Look out for these and keep them out of sight by moving them to the basement or hiding them in shelves.
2. Color matters. Do you plan to change the tones of your bedroom? Light or cool colors tend to expand the available space while darker shades give you the feeling of a smaller one. Try to get a color palette where you can choose the right hues that will accentuate the size of the bedroom and help it seem to look bigger. Invest in colors like mint green, yellow, white and light blue since these convey a larger space. Try to paint all walls with light tones and leave one area, preferably where your bed is located, to be painted with darker tones.
3. Mirrors. Mirrors are one of the most important things you need to expand the available space. Find a huge mirror and place it at one side of the room. I suggest placing the mirror against the window to reflect the light across the area. Other recommended sites include a single mirror running from the floor to the ceiling or placing two mirrors facing each other, with your unique wall clocks above. Glass also provides a more fluid environment.
4. Accessorizing. Select items that will greatly enhance the size of the room, but be careful about adding things that may overwhelm the space and instead, make it seem smaller. Inclusions are rectangular carpets, light curtains, and light fixtures. Strategically place your lights in dark corners to boost the illusion of space. When putting frames or paintings, try to position these at eye level. The space running from the frame to the ceiling will make the room seem much bigger.
5. Storage. The more storage space you have, the more clutter you get to keep. Hide items that you only use occasionally, such as blow dryers, books, and CDs. Make sure you have enough storage space for your shoes, clothes, kits, and other paraphernalia, so you can free up more space. Tabletops, the bed, and desktops need to be as empty as possible. Putting a decor or two, preferably nautical table clocks can help provide a more aesthetic appeal.
