3 Ways to Maximize Space
“Honey, it won’t fit!”
The dreaded question “will it fit?” is often said when you cannot imagine how new furniture will fit physically into your space. This can be extra stressful if you are already aware that you are dealing with a small apartment or a house.
When it comes down to it retrofitting any room into a modern living area demands some time. And it will add more cost too. Colors, floors, accessories, windows and a whole lot of other items obstruct our thinking at times.
Focusing on the small improvements that you can do today is the key in this situation. It often comes down to the selection of proper furniture as well. Spacing and layout means a lot, why not save a headache and follow these tips?
Soften the Colour
The quickest way to make your living space appear bigger is to paint it in bright colors. Using dark paint or wallpapers will give you the opposite effect and will make any room look way smaller than it really is. Yes, darker colors are way more elegant and mysterious but if your goal is to maximize the size of a room, choose something bright. Painting can be an excellent DIY improvement and you can quickly finish the work on your own.
White is the classic color and will work well with any décor. But it can be dull and generic as well. The best solutions are brown and gray colors because they are warm and gentle to the eyes. It will give you the same effect of wideness without looking too common. You will still have a unique apartment that is well lit and bright. Don’t forget the flooring either. Go for a wooden finish that has plenty of browns in it.
You should continue to do the same with the furniture so choose grays, whites, or light browns. Domino Leather Sofa is designed exceptionally well.
