WE CAN MAKE OUR SMALL FLATS LOOK LARGER WITH SOME DECORATION TRICKS
Size of flats and families are getting smaller due to the increase in prices of the real estate properties during the last few years. This situation brings along the need to make our small homes to look larger than they actually are. It is not that hard to create a comfortable living space for people who live in flats that most of them are built in reduced sizes about forty square meters and are located in big cities.
What are the tricks to make a small flat look larger? Here is the answer:
CHOOSE LIGHT COLORS
Regardless of how small the size of your flat, from floor tiles to wall paintings choosing light colors is going to do the trick to show your flat roomier, brighter, and more spacious.
HIDE OVERHANGING COLUMNS
Adding spice to your place is possible by painting the overhanging columns in dark colors or installing wallpapers in different patterns than the ones installed on the walls.
SHELF UNITS BETWEEN COLUMNS
You can make use of the space between the two columns by installing shelf units to keep your books or decorative items.
USE CORNER SOFAS
When purchasing a sofa for your small flat, you should go for a corner sofa, which is upholstered in a light color. Moreover, if you choose one with storage space you are going to get even more use out of it.
HANG YOUR TV ON THE WALL
You can install shelves on the wall to the right side of your TV, if you hang the TV on the wall or you can place a console underneath it and keep your dining sets in it.
Opt for an extending one when deciding on a dining table. However, if you choose one that extends at the ends instead of the middle, it would have a more aesthetic look because it is not going to show a line in the middle.
CHAIR AND OTTOMAN
You can go for four chairs and a long ottoman instead of six chairs in your flat. The ottoman could serve you as an ottoman by day and as a dining chair by night.
You can create an atmosphere, which makes your flat look more spacious by choosing lacquered furniture.
CARPET IN A SOLID COLOR
Using a carpet in a solid color makes your flat look even larger than it is.
