Small spaces can be difficult, as there is often not as much room for furniture and personal items. This being said, with all of the furniture and personal items in place, you can still run into problems. Rooms can start to look cluttered and dirty. One tip for smaller areas would obviously be to remove as much furniture and unnecessary items as possible, leaving a cleaner and more sleek ambiance in your room. Let’s take a look at some of the other ways that you can trick the eye with paint.
- Painting Furniture: By painting your furniture to match the walls, you create a sort of illusion. Anything against the wall kind of blends in and seems like it isn’t even necessarily there. This being said, you will have the ability to have a kind of main focus piece of furniture that will really pop.
- Mounted Shelves: These kinds of shelves are perfect for a home that is tight on space. By painting them the same color of the wall, you can also give the illusion that they are not there as well.
- Neutrals: Soft neutrals are perfect because they can help lighten up a room, which makes the eye see the room as more open.
- Dark Shades: Darker shades can help tremendously in that they can help to hide specific items. A dark hunter green or a navy can make it seem like the wall is flat, even if there are cabinets etc.
- Trim: Painting the trim the same color as your wall is the perfect way to make it seem like your ceiling is a bit higher, creating the visual illusion that the room is taller.
- Focal Wall: Adding a focal wall is always a good idea, as it makes the room pop!
