There are many ways to make a room look spacious and large. The first most important element is the room lighting. Go for soft and even lighting so that shadows don`t divide your room into smaller sections. Avoid putting ceiling lights as they make the ceiling look lower. By having a diffused and ambient lighting the room will look large. The next thing to keep in mind is the texture used in the room. Smooth surfaces tend to reflect more light as compared to heavy textured flooring. For interior decoration one can also use mirror and chrome as the reflection and shine give depth to a room. The wall colors of a room are also important in giving a spacious look to the room. Go for cream, beige, gray or cool pastels for walls. Also while selecting colors keep in mind that the ceiling should be in the lightest color in the room. The next thing comes the furniture. Place the furniture in a manner that it leaves adequate space to move around. Push the largest piece of furniture against the wall. Let the furniture color be similar to the wall and floor color of the room.
An outdoor space may be something that you want to consider, if you are looking into buying a new home. While having extra space outdoors may mean that your new home will be more expensive, without a doubt your whole family will be sure to love the extra outdoor space for a long period of time.
Lights: The setting of the bedroom is decided by the arrangement of lights in the room. The switches for the lights are to be placed where they can be reached easily.A personal corner can be made by the window by placing a comfortable chair and side table for reading. This would allow the use of sunlight during daytime. A book case or a magazine rack can be added.
A cooking or food preparation area is always of importance. While it is acceptable to carry food from the kitchen to the outdoors, many people opt to have a grilling area, built in or freestanding, fireplace or fire pit. Your outdoor table and chairs may be custom made, purchased at a store or a combination of the two in order to achieve the design elements you require. An excellent way to define the eating space is with a large outdoor area rug. This will help to formalize the space and give it a bit more polish than a plain table and chairs outside.
When decorating the room, let`s not forget that using food as a decoration can really put people in the mind of partaking of a meal. Try setting platters of fruit around where they could look good. A platter bountiful with fruit placed next to your tea service should look very attractive. And of course, when considering dining room decorating ideas, let`s not overlook the contribution that the right kind of lighting can bring in. Certainly, a beautifully shaded lamp or two casting a warm glow next to the table should be very pretty. If you could afford it, a chandelier with tiny bulbs right above the dining table should light everything wonderfully, only not too brightly. If you could put in a large mirror on one wall, that would lend a slightly unexpected expansiveness to the dining room that should really make for a dramatic effect.
Additional space outdoors can also be used for planting beautiful flowers, vegetables and other plants. You can even grow your own organic vegetables and enjoy harvest, as you rest assured that the healthy food you are eating contains absolutely no pesticides. At the same time, adding flowers will be sure to automatically boost the appeal of your home`s portico. While plants and trees are also ornamental in purpose, they also serve to ensure that fresh air circulates around your home regularly. Trees also provide shade and are especially helpful for those hot summer days. Also consider making use of outdoor furniture, to further beautify the space, and to immediately expand your home.
Both rattan and wicker furniture is a less expensive alternative to hardwood, if you want to have furniture that is made from natural sources. These types of patio furniture don`t require a lot of maintenance and can be used in or outdoors all year long. It`s also possible to change the outlook of Wicker or Rattan furniture by giving the furniture a new coat of color. So, if you`re inclined to change the decor of your patio frequently without buying new patio furniture every time, then wicker or rattan furniture would be the best choice for you.
There is a huge trend right now to have a defined outdoor living space. The popularity of outdoor fireplaces or fire pits, patio furniture and some kind of theme to tie them all together is on the rise. Outdoor design teams can coordinate an entire yard with walkways, sitting areas, flower gardens, entertaining spaces, and gathering areas. These spaces can be defined with plants, decks, rockwork, furniture, and or/ outdoor rugs.
