5 Mistakes to Avoid With Smaller Room Sizes
Let’s look at mistakes clients make with restricted spaces in their homes.
Mistake 1) Filling up smaller sized rooms with lots of medium or small sized pieces of furniture. Many may even justify this act by saying that small pieces of furniture are in proportion to small rooms. However, the right strategy for smaller rooms is actually just the opposite.
Mistake 2) Never cover up windows in smaller spaces by blocking out part or all of it’s natural light. Let the lights make the room appear bigger.
Mistake 3)Don’t go for Dark colours when painting walls in small rooms. Going dark for one feature wall is OK, going dark for all the walls will make a small room look even smaller.
Mistake 4) The big NO NO, don’t clutter rooms in confined spaces, clutter is a notorious space-eater – it eats up physical space as well as makes small rooms appear even cramped to the eyes.
Mistake 5) Never stop the flow of a room, people like to walk easily through a small room, not weave their way through furniture. Light and Space make the eye see the room as bigger than it actually is.
With the right strategies, you can make compact rooms look even more impressive than large rooms. And, you can make a smaller room look impressive on a lower budget, as the amount of premium finishes and elements required to ‘fill’ a restricted space is lesser than that required for larger spaces.
