It would be nice to be able to live in a giant villa or house fully furnished. Infinite spaces, dozens of rooms and so many bathrooms that we wouldn’t know what to do with them. It will have happened to everyone to fantasize about the mega villas where millionaires or movie stars live. In reality, however, most people are satisfied with smaller and more functional spaces. But that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t want some extra space if possible. Even if we can’t structurally change our home, it doesn’t mean we can’t do anything at all. Using some tricks, we can make an environment optically larger, without putting our wallet.
Not everyone knows this, but only by playing with the painting of the various environments you can completely change perspective. Many will have already heard of the all-white walls to visually expand the rooms. This is just one of the techniques for making a room more spacious. In other cases, it might be better to take advantage of another method widely used by architects and design experts.
The method consists in creating a continuous surface that goes from floor to ceiling. A good way to do this is to choose floors without joints, then wood parquet, resin flooring or microcement. Ideal for living rooms, this trick can be used in different spaces of the house to give more depth to the environment.
Which furniture to choose for a well-groomed effect
Continuing on the principle of continuity, we can opt for furniture without any visible handle or knob. Even better if suspended, alternating closed furniture with open furniture, to create movement. A perfect solution for kitchenettes or peninsulas, also opting for a contrasting color. So as to transfer the focal point where we want and to make the whole environment homogeneous as in the catalogs.
We use mirrors and reflective surfaces to add depth, while also playing with the lighting. An excellent idea, then, are the glass coffee tables in the living room, which seem to almost disappear into the environment. Let’s just remember not to fill them with objects and furnishings, otherwise all our purpose will vanish.
In general, even if it seems paradoxical to us, to make a room seem larger you need little furniture. The less furniture there is, the more tidy and spacious everything will seem, a real luxury home.
So here are some tips to make your house look bigger without spending a lot of money. Perspective is a key thing to play with the size of any room in the house. Not to mention the great help that furnishing accessories such as carpets can give us. By placing them in the right way, we will immediately get an incredible optical effect.
