Rooms are easy to furnish, but are they welcoming? Have you ever stepped into a dimly lit room with a large gray couch and a dark table? Surely it seems there’s enough room for everything, but they won’t be fitting for a large group to stay in.
Light and Soft Hues A room looking hip is typically a matter of the walls. In a small living room you can try painting it with ‘cool’ colors like blue or green.
Make sure the shades in the room are of darker color, to compliment the entire room. If you follow those rules, you can actually give the appearance of a higher ceiling.
Tips with Window Treatments If you have window treatments, you can use them to give the appearance of height. To accomplish this feat, just have them move up towards the ceiling. Definitely worth a try. Oversized Objects Oversized or over-scaled pictures can be paintings, picture frames and patterns. With this visual trick you can make your living room appear bigger than it is.
Hold on to the Necessities It’s important you leave space in your living room. Sometimes the best thing you can put in a room is space. The more space in your rooms, the more free and clear it will feel. Now don’t take this the wrong way and empty out the room, but skinny furniture can not only give a hip look, but help free up some room.
