How to make your room look bigger, in one day

How to make your room look bigger, in one day

I assure you is that by doing these tips that we are going to see at the same time, you will make your room look bigger, obviously, visually. If you’re interested, keep up with me that we start with this list of steps and tips to make a room look bigger. We start

Purge the room

An orderly lounge to make it look bigger

Throughout the months and years, we are adding almost without realizing more things to the room.

A new cushion, a few books on the furniture, a beautiful vase that has been given to you, some other photographs … And so we are adding and reloading all the space.

So, just as if it were a closet that you want to order, the first thing you should do is purge.

Remove everything you think is too much, empty the TV cabinet a bit, which does not look reloaded, do not saturate the cushion sofa. The coffee table and the dining table that do not have many ornaments on top, etc.

In this way, in a few hours, you will get your room to breathe and the space is not so crowded.

It may seem a bit trivial task to make the room look bigger, but at the time you do it, leave the room, go shopping, have a beer or go for a walk. When you re-enter, you will realize the great impact that the task of purging has just done.

I am not telling you to get to minimalism, but you want to, but it is common sense that a space that has element overload seems and is visually heavier, as well as that a room with just elements seems lighter. Lighter.

If you already have your living room like this, and you want to continue strengthening your space, then let’s move on to the following advice:

Lighten or remove the curtains

A room without curtains to make it look bigger

You see, curtains are a very important decorative element, but beyond their aesthetic use, they fulfill a very important function: they regulate the amount of light that enters the space.

Therefore, this advice is not a strict rule but rather, a flexible suggestion that you should adapt to your classroom.

The curtains have a great visual weight, and more if they are reloaded with large and opaque prints.

If you remove them, you will see that your room becomes deep and the space is larger. The visual difference is shocking.

I tell you the same as before. Remove the curtains and turn around. When you enter your room again, you will see what a big difference.

If you cannot or do not want to remove the curtains, because as I said before, you need them to have privacy and to regulate the natural light that enters, then bet on lighter ones.

Even if you want to go further, remove the curtains and put a blind, as we see in the room above these lines, which is a much finer aesthetically speaking element and you will also notice that your room looks bigger.

Naturally, if you remove the curtains, you will also notice that your living room is brighter, but that is another topic, that if you are interested, you can read in this article that I wrote recently where I tell you how to make a living room more luminous.

Let’s look at another tip to make the room look bigger:

Show or show the entire possible perimeter of the room

In the same way that the previous advice in some cases cannot be applied or not at all in some houses, I understand that this advice may not be carried out by everyone.

But it is so effective, and it takes so little time, that I have to put yes or yes on this list.

This is a proven fact: The more clean perimeter you see in your room, the bigger it will look.

That is, the larger the surface of walls and baseboard is free, the larger your room will look.

The feeling that a room, or any other space is small or ornate, comes in large measure that the eye cannot see the perimeter, usually because it is full of furniture.

So lighten your living room as much as possible, take the furniture to the center if you can, leaving the walls as free as possible. If you can not, separate the furniture about 5 centimeters from the walls so that the space does not seem so ornate.

Believe me, it works great. If the eye can perceive the perimeter of a site, it will seem wider.

Let’s keep going:

Hide the wires

Hide the wires to make the room bigger

This step or trick, works very well, since the cables, which we often have many and many of them in sight, form a visual disorder that makes our room seem more crowded and messy.

So, hide all the cables:

Here you can see 15 ideas to hide cables throughout the house.

It is a task that you can probably do in minutes, and the result is a clearer and tidier room. Do not you think enough reason to hide all the cables?

Let’s continue with the next step:

Make your roofs look taller

So, make your roof look taller. How?

It is actually quite simple. Here you can see 12 effective and simple tricks to make the roofs look taller.

Let’s continue with the next step:

Put mirrors

A room with mirrors to make it look bigger

I have left this trick or advice to make the room bigger because it is the only one of all that requires an item.

As you can see, the rest of the steps to make your room look bigger are based on removing or changing what you already have.

But in this case, you will need a mirror. Or several.

If you put a mirror in front of the window, you will give the room a new dimension.

A non-physical dimension, but a visual one, which is what we want. You will make the room look deeper, wider or longer. In addition, more luminous. Sounds good, right?

All steps are effective. Now it is up to you what steps to take to make your room look bigger, clear and “clean.”

Trends in bathrooms and toilets 2020

Trends in bathrooms and toilets 2020

This selection of washrooms and toilets is special: It shows a lot of what’s going to be in 2020. And don’t forget to take a look at what I said last year about 2019 trends in bathrooms and kitchens, because practically all of them are still up. Things don’t change drastically from year to year (although some want it to look like this…)

Carving the vats is trendy and it’s a great idea for small bathroomsbecause you have great freedom in bowl sizes. It’s lightweight and straight lines make it easy to clean, but since drains are often hidden and there are crevices for water to drain, cleaning should be frequent.

They can be made of various materials (marble – lighter ones can easily stain), granite, nanoglass, silestone (quartz in general), wood, concrete or porcelain) and are generally more expensive than ready-made vats. They may or may not have ramps (see photos). In this case, the water drops to the crevices in the deepest part, and it is best that the tap is on this side to avoid splashing. In straight bottom water goes to the sides of the removable plate.

Lighting and glow effects

Terrazo, Marmorite, Granilite and the like

These, already commented for 2019, we should see more and more around in 2020. You bet!

As you can see in the photos, the other trends I mentioned earlier this year (industrial chic, minimalism, scandinavian, use of black and light wood, geometric coatings, curves, plants, transparencies – did you notice the almost transparent boxes, Cebrace launch? -, frames in black… All this beautifully keeps decorating our bathrooms and toilets, okay?

Small office at home or apartment

Small office at home or apartment

Working at home is an activity that more and more people are doing. And if you want to play in entrepreneurship and you have a room or a corner in your home or apartment and you want to start your entrepreneurial activities there by turning the room into an office or creating a home office corner for your business, This post is special to you!

If you have an entire environment for your office and will welcome clients at home

I am already imagining that you are investing seriously in your business! So be sure to invest in this space In addition to giving your client a good impression, he works in the most comfortable way (see what is indispensable in a large or small home office).

It will be super interesting if you have a way to let your customers reach your office without getting too much into your “intimacy”, for example: If a separate entrance is possible for them or the office is very close to the front door of their residence.

And it is essential that customer conversation is minimally hampered by “noises” which are normal in a home but not in a work environment. Think of somehow diminishing the outside sounds.

Of course with customers visiting, you need invest in decoration, organization and comfort. Having a small refrigerator, a corner of coffee and / or drinks, if it is consistent), comfortable chairs or sofas is an investment.

Make it your office decor is consistent with your business. Not to be mistaken, follow the decorating style of companies working in the same field: A law firm is more formal. Already a company that works with fashion or beauty follows the style of the audience that seeks to reach (more chic, classic or more relaxed, depends on the customer you intend to have).

It is good that the areas where the client will go to reach his office have some consistency with the style you will use in it.

Another tip: Furniture distribution should allow you to talk facing your customer. The best idea is the table with 2 chairs facing each other. If this is not possible, use 2 chairs on the same side of the table or a small sofa nearby.

Nothing prevents the environment from being used as well as guest roomwith a sofa bed. But the decor should clearly be that of an office.

If you have a corner in your office / home office environment but need to receive clients

It may be more complicated, but not impossible: It will be necessary to create a more or less separate area in that environment and create clear rules to the other residents so that the conversation with the client is not hampered by family issues.

Keep betting on give comfort and keep organized. This is very important to you and your client because you can’t work well in an environment that isn’t good for you.

And repeating the same tips: In talking with the customer it is important that you can be facing him. And maintain consistency in decorating the rest of the environment.

The living room can be a good place if it is possible, when receiving the client, to have the utmost silence.

A space in a bedroom can also be used, but with sofa bed and more impersonal decor.

If you only need a corner to work, but you will not receive customers

Even so, be sure to pay attention to comfort, organization and the need for your space to be respected! Who can work if it doesn’t exist? Make sure every investment in your space returns in greater productivity and enjoyment.

In that case, it’s okay to have the table against the wall and your chair facing it. Which is good, because it takes up less space.

Photo: Designsponge

The freedom is greater, you decorate as you wish, following the style of decoration of the house. And you can create this little corner anywhere in the house. Your way, for your handiwork, for working on the computer, etc.

Whatever it is or whatever, be sure to also pay special attention to lighting the space and follow these 5 suggestions. And much success for you !!!!
