Do you have a large room? Congratulations! This is a rarity these days. But on the other hand, having a large room does not mean that the decor is easier or requires less care.
On the contrary, the wrong choices can leave your room with a messy appearance if you bury the space with lots of furniture or objects, or it may seem too cold and informal, causing a feeling of discomfort, since a large and poorly filled room may cause this impression.
The question that remains is: how to decorate a large room properly? The answers are given in the topics below. Check out each and find out how to leave your big room comfortable and cozy:
It is not because your room is large that you will fill it with furniture. The use of furniture should be done rationally and functionally, in the same way as with a small room. The difference here is that you have more freedom to use certain types of furniture and choose the size, which in a smaller room is unthinkable.
In a large room, for example, it is possible to use center tables, side tables, puffs and armchairs, besides the traditional and indispensable double sofa and rack. These complementary furniture helps to break the real dimension of the environment and turn it into a more welcoming place, where everything is closer, without great distances to be traveled.
Carpets and curtains
Two indispensable items in a large room: carpet and curtain. They are responsible for the feeling of warmth and welcome. When choosing the models, be aware of the measures so that everything is proportional.
Lighting is also key in a great room decorating project. This is because light has the function of bringing comfort to the environment, especially the directed lights.
One tip is to opt for floor lamps, after all you have room for that. Another way to insert lighting is with LED strips on the floor or embedded in the ceiling.
And do not forget the trick: yellow lights to create a warm and intimate climate, since white lights should be used with the aim of enhancing natural lighting.
If for small environments the tip is always to opt for light tones in the decoration, in a large room the idea is reversed. Broad environments are favored with the use of dark tones, such as green, blue, brown, gray and even black.
They help make the room more comfortable visually and limit the feeling of space. Try painting one of the walls in these colors, using them on the sofa or on the rug, for example.
The key word for decorating a large room is proportion. Imagine a huge wall with a tiny rack or sofa? It does not work, right? So think of furniture that will fit in with the space you have available.
Another tip is to use and abuse paintings, cushions, lamps, art objects, potted plants and whatever else is within your decorating style. All these elements contribute to a more welcoming and well-filled room.
