Living in a big city comes with perks such as access to mega shopping centers, cool music and entertainment sports, and great nightlife. However, the downside is that you pay huge rents for spaces that are smaller than ideal. If you’re planning to repaint or redecorate a small room, how you choose to go about it can make it look spacious and open it up, or make it smaller and uncomfortable.
Strategic decorating and wall painting is one of the easiest ways to open up seemingly small rooms without significant investment and effort. Whether you’re planning to open up your small bedroom in the city or a smaller spare guest room at your home in the countryside, here are some painting and redecorating dos and don’ts:
Dos and Don’ts
• DO Use Light Colors: it’s a generally known fact that using light colors can make small spaces look bigger. Bright walls and lights make a space feel a little more airy and open, and this helps enhance the presence of natural light.
On the contrary, dark colors tend to absorb light, making small spaces look even smaller. If you’re repainting your walls, choose soft tones of off-white, green and blue.
• DON’T overuse Patterns: Choose plain light colors for your walls, or one bold color for your focal point and add in quitter complementary neutrals. This way, your room will not feel crowded.
