HOW TO MAKE A SMALL ROOM IN YOUR CONDO LOOK LARGER

Do you have a room in your condo that makes you feel that the walls are closing in? It is very possible it has more to do with the decor than with the dimensions, even if it is a very small room. Believe it or not you can make significant changes without spending a lot of money.

 Think about the following things:

1. Are your walls dark and full of pictures and decorations? Or are they light, airy and minimally covered? To make a room feel larger, paint the walls with a light color such as white or pale yellow. When choosing a color consider the amount of sun the room receives. If the room is on the north side of the condo, receiving little or no direct sunlight, a pale yellow is your best choice. If the room does receive a substantial amount of sun, a pale green or blue will work. Please refer to my previous article about « TRENDS IN PAINT COLOR.

2. Consider removing your window treatments completely. This will open your room up drastically. Heavy drapes close a room in and make it feel dark. If you want something on the windows for privacy use mini blinds in white or wall color. For softness add window treatments that are minimal in size such as a rod pocket and light in color.

3. Remove any dark or heavy pictures or wall hangings. Dark, heavy frames give the feeling of pulling the walls in. Many items on a wall will do the same thing. Instead try scattering just a few select items in light colors with light weight, light colored frames.

4. Consider painting your furniture white or covering with a light colored fabric. Using light colors, close to the wall color will make the room feel more open and airy.

5. Minimize the furniture in the room removing everything you can live without. Avoid tall book cases and any large, bulky items.

These simple changes can change your room without breaking  your budget!
