Do you have a very narrow hallway or an oddly-shaped room in your home? There are helpful interior design tips for adding depth to living spaces and visually balancing any room shape.
These simple but effective tips can help you transform the interior without renovation to become more attractive and spacious (without adding square footage).
If you feel that a room is a bit dull and lacks interest, contrasting colors will give the desired dynamics. Regardless of the room size, contrast created by colors will add depth and bring more life into the room. Depending on how much natural light enters the interior, adjust the intensity and darkness of colors to avoid the mistake of feeling “heavy“ in the end. If there’s not plenty of natural light in a smaller room, then leave most walls white except one, add a striking art canvas painting or a catchy wallpaper on one of the walls.
Dark or bold color as a background pushes the light details towards the viewer.
Size and Patterns – Perception of the Space
For smaller interiors, think of a few different smaller furniture pieces that will trick the eye looking around the room. For example, instead of going for a bulky or large sofa, arrange a few different designer chairs. To create a light breezy interior design focus on light and bright colors, and don’t forget the greenery – plants really add life to a room instantly!
As for patterns, moderation is key. Choose smart, go for a great design pattern as the main one, and choose small-scale patterns as secondary.
Texture and Light
Clean lines, floating design, and smooth surfaces toppled with some simple geometric patterns and decorations, will display your ability to play and achieve a contemporary and elegant interior design.
Glossy surfaces and mirrors will inevitably expand the room visually, so place a mirror strategically (it is always welcomed in a narrow hallway) or any place else where it will reflect most of the room.
