The master bedroom of your home should be a haven, but if you’re short on space, it can be difficult to create the effect that you truly want to achieve. The tips below will help you achieve the perfect illusion, and help to ensure that your master bedroom looks and feels far bigger than it actually is…
#1 – Use a bright wall colour
Whether you choose wallpaper or paint, ensure that you keep the colour light, bright, and — preferably — neutral. This will help the space to feel much larger.
#2 – Make use of mirrors
In an effort to continue that bright, light feel, ensure you use mirrors as a key part of your decor. This incredible dressing table mirror combined with an oval floor mirror should be the perfect duet that helps to enhance the look and feel of your room.
#3 – Use the right bed base
As beautiful as wooden beds may be, metal bed bases tend to be more delicate, which helps to make a room look larger. If you’re not a fan of metal beds, then a high gloss bed will also work well when trying to make the room look larger.
#4 – Maximise your storage
Nothing will make a room look smaller than large amounts of clutter, so maximise your storage using ottomans and as many chests of drawers as you can fit in the space.
#5 – Use blinds rather than curtains
Curtains protrude into the room, which can make the room feel smaller. Opt for roller blinds to avoid this.
#6 – Choose your wardrobe first
Your wardrobe is the most important piece of furniture when it comes to trying to make your master bedroom look bigger. As it’s such a large piece, you have to select it with care. Buy your wardrobe first and then build the rest of the room around it. A particularly good choice for this is a mirrored wardrobe, which helps to reflect light and remains functional.
#7 – Use “open” furniture
Furniture that incorporates negative space, such as this gorgeous bedside table, trick the eye and look like they are taking up less space, which in turn helps the room to look larger.
#8 – Use rugs to divide the space
Dividing the space can, oddly enough, actually make the space look larger. Rugs are a great way of dividing the room in a subtle, but unmistakably beneficial, way.
#9 – Don’t push your furniture flush against the wall
Create the illusion of extra space by placing your furniture an inch or so from the wall rather than flush against it— you’ll be amazed how much of a difference this can make!
#10 – Place artwork higher than you normally would
Make the room look and feel much taller by placing artwork around six feet from the floor; this creates an illusion of height that improves the overall look of the room immensely.
By implementing some — or all! — of the tips above, you should be able to create an optical illusion that makes your master bedroom both look and feel far larger. Enjoy
