The furniture pieces you choose and where you place them matter when you want to make any room look and feel bigger.
Here, we share some tips on how to furnish your rooms to avoid looking cramped, dark, and crowded.
If your rooms are small and the walls are a bit dark, consider using furniture pieces with thin, long legs.
These are called ‘floating furniture'.
Take a good look at this living room. The side tables and the coffee table in this featured living room are great examples of floating furniture pieces. The thin legs of the tables do not block the line of sight, revealing a more visible floor area and making the room feel larger.
In reality, it is easier to style a square and rectangular room than the long and narrow areas of the house. It is very difficult to furnish and decorate hallways, corridors, and entry because these have very little floor areas. More often, these end up empty and ‘soulless'.
To give life to your hallway and entry, furnish these areas with thin-legged furniture pieces. Take cues from this beautiful foyer:
Thin-legged furniture pieces such as the console table above and bench featured below allow much floor area to be visible as possible and further lengthen the space.
Your bedroom might have an unused corner that you can jazz up when you redecorate. Turn this into a cozy nook where you can read books or drink your warm beverage in the morning.
Try not to place a chunky chair next to a bulky bed. Choose a soft-coloured and snuggly-looking chair with thin legs instead. Use a side table that does not take so much floor space as well. Consider doing these to visually lighten the weight of the bedroom.
In the kitchen, use dining chairs and stools with long legs. Find pieces with a light-looking frame similar to the chairs featured here:
Furniture pieces with long and thin legs enhance the sense of space. Opt for these to make any room look and feel bigger.
