Increase The Size of Your Home With Designer Mirrors
No matter which type of home you buy, whether it’s a giant farmhouse or a compact city apartment, every dwelling has a room that feels a bit small. In some cases, it’s a study or a bathroom, and sometimes it’s the living room. Either way, there’s always that one room in the home that simply doesn’t look good with furniture inside. We get it, sometimes compromises have to be made, but it sucks having a room where you simply never feel comfortable.
Well, that is until you start harnessing the power of mirrors! If there’s one way to get a small or compact room back up to snuff, then it’s with a bit of antique designer flair. In this blog, we’re going to go through some of the best ways that you can make the best of a small room using designer mirrors.
So, read on, and discover what you can achieve with a little bit of creativity and some well-selected pieces!
The mirror is the interior designer’s secret weapon; it’s a fact. With their reflective surfaces, mirrors can expand the visual space of a room effectively and efficiently.
If you have trouble with a lack of natural light, such as having small windows, then placing an arched mirror in the space can be a fantastic way to double the amount of daylight while also opening the room up considerably.
Antique style and French mirrors are also fantastic choices as they can create a focal point for the room that makes the eye follow them to the most distant part of the room, giving the impression of expanded size and style.
Keep It Simple
One thing that seems to be a consistent mistake for many small space owners is the need to fill them with furniture.
Sure, it looks like a good idea to try and ignore the fact the space is small. But the reality is that it simply isn’t feasible at the best of times to overfill an area already lacking in real estate. The result of overloading your room is having a space that feels claustrophobic or like something a hoarder would be proud of.
As a result, the best way to treat a small room is to keep the furniture to a minimum. Barring that, you could also try using more miniature furniture as a compromise. Either way, we advise embracing your minimalist side as much as possible.
Let’s Get Colorful
Color can be a massive tool in your arsenal to making a space seem more significant than it is.
Painting your ceiling the same color as the walls can work wonders by creating an illusion of added space as the line between wall and roof begins to blur. Similarly, painting features in your room, such as built-in wardrobes and bookcases, the same color as your walls, can be a great way to help them blend into the walls, once again expanding the visual size of the room.
