Just because your bedroom may be spatially challenged doesn’t mean it has to look that way. Here are two more ways to magnify the appearance of space in a small boudoir.
Play With Proportions
Use low-profile furniture
Manipulating the scale of furniture in a space can directly affect the appearance of its size. That’s why if you’ve got a small bedroom with low ceilings investing in furniture that has a low profile can make your ceilings appear taller and enhance the appearance of volume in the room, making it feel larger than it really is.
See beneath your pieces
Consider choosing furniture that has tapered legs because if you can see beneath your bed, and other pieces, it can create a greater sense of openness and help give your room the appearance of more space.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
You don’t have to live in a fairytale to get a bigger-looking bedroom. A couple of strategically-placed mirrors can help do the trick.
By virtue of their reflective nature, mirrors have the ability to de-emphasize the presence of the walls they cover, creating a visual portal through a physical barrier.
Use a floor mirror
Consider leaning a large floor mirror against a wall. If purposefully placed it can create the illusion of a doorway into another space. Or, you could place a floor mirror in a corner to let your gaze travel beyond where the two walls meet.
Hang a wall mirror
Think about hanging a wall mirror adjacent to a window in your room. The mirror will reflect light from the window back into your space, making it brighter and giving it a larger appearance.
You can expand the visual space in your room with a little help from smoke screen and mirrors—minus the smoke, of course.
