Small House Interior Design Ideas To Make Your House Look Larger
Long curtains or none
Long curtains for windows usually make a small room look bigger. It also works if the colour of the windows matches the colour of the room. No curtains also work for a lot of apartments, this lets the light come in and gives a spacious feel to the room.
Sofas or sofa sets can take up a lot of space in a small apartment. Keeping a sofa and a bed together can mean saying goodbye to free space. So it is highly advised to keep a pull out sofa in place of a normal sofa. A pull-out sofa can be transformed into a bed whenever it is necessary for the homeowners.
Furniture with broad stands should be eliminated first. Furniture with narrow stands looks as if they consume less space. Thicker stands below the furniture make them look bulkier than they normally are and make the room look congested. Furniture with storage spaces inside it, is very welcome. Small furniture is always advisable when one wants to make their apartment look more spacious.
To make a room look more spacious than it is, the vertical limit needs to be omitted. The ceiling should not have any distinction from the walls because that only makes the room look smaller. Removing the vertical limit will create an open space for the room.
