Small Room Decorating Tips
1. Personality is fundamental
No matter the size of your room, there is always room for you to give that touch of personality leaving the environment with your face. So invest in picture frames, family objects or antiques, travel souvenirs, pictures and other objects that convey your values and your passions.
But do not forget that these items should come just as a detail. Otherwise, you overload the space and instead bring personality creates a visual mess.
Besides objects, there are other ways for you to expose your identity. This is the subject of the next items.
2. Choose the right color palette
The colors (right) are also fundamental when decorating the room. Choose a color palette that fits you and your personality and use it on walls, rug, curtains, cushions, sofas, and objects on display.
Just be careful not to become a carnival. The colors should come in balanced doses and in the same tone. When in doubt, opt for sober colors on furniture and larger pieces such as rugs and curtains, and leave the colors vibrant for smaller objects.
In the case of small environments, always keep in mind that the light tones give the feeling of amplitude to the space. Especially white.
3. Comfort and functionality in measure
In small spaces, furniture needs to offer comfort and functionality. You can not lose space for objects that have no use. So, invest in a comfortable sofa that receives your visits as well as you after a tiring day where your only desire is to stretch out on the couch and rest.
If you are going to use coffee tables, opt for those with compartments so you can store objects or organize remote controls, for example. Another option is to use TV panels rather than the bulky racks and shelves, they save space and still add a touch of modernity to the decor.
And do not forget to opt for a television that matches the space you have available. No TVs too big for very small rooms. And, remember, the ideal distance between the appliance and the sofa is 1.5 meters.
4. Carpets and curtains
Choose a tall rug that fills your feet and fits in the center of your living room, but does not go too far in size. Striped rugs help increase the feeling of space. However, if carpets do not make your style, do not worry. If your floor is in good condition and in the same visual pattern, let it appear. You gain sense of continuity and space.
With curtains, the ideal are those that go from ceiling to floor in a unique pattern of color and texture. Another option is the blinds. More economical, they give air of modernity to the environment.
5. Extend the space
The great trick to extend the space (besides those already mentioned above) are the mirrors. They give depth and a touch of elegance to space. You can opt for a large single piece or several smaller mirrors arranged harmonically. Beware only of what will be reflected.
Small rooms need space and warmth, so nothing to fill the place with objects and unnecessary visual information.
Another important tip is brightness. Ensure that your room will receive adequate natural light in order to value the space.
