Take Full Advantage of Space in Your Flat/Apartment in Edinburgh

By LauraCampbell Subscribe to RSS | February 27th 2012 | Views:

Making a house look small of large totally depends on the way you decorate it. You need to understand the colors, the lighting, and the furniture placement in order to give your house an open feel. However, if the house is really small and there isn’t much you can do about it, there still is the option of renovating. You can always knock through a wall to create more space. Just by getting rid of a wall you can have three feet worth of space. Adding in an extra window will also brighten up things and also make the place look big.

Try to open up

Many rooms and houses look cramped because people block the view into the room. Hence you need to re-place the furniture such that it is away from walkways. This will give it an open feel. Also try not to add in too many tables; instead make the floor visible, this will also make the room look bigger.

Choosing the right color scheme

Make sure that the colors you choose belong to the same theme. Use same colors for the walls, fabrics, curtains, upholstery. Moreover, if the select the same theme for the entire flat or apartment that will look blended well together and will also give a feel of continuity. Warm light colors give the room an open look. Another important thing is to coordinate the furniture and wall colors. This will blend with the space instead of contracting colors which tend to break the space.

Lighting it right

This is very important and most people mess up in this regard. Lights have a very important effect. The perfect lighting can make a room look big and also help you to relax and unwind. Adding in lamps and wall lights will make the room look sophisticated and larger in size. Instead of using curtains use blinds which take up much less space.

Adding mirrors

Adding in mirrors on the walls will give a larger room effect. You can always have a mirrored wall or a large framed mirror on the wall. The space and light will be reflected with style and also give a more open feeling. Mirrored furniture is also in these days and it gives the same effect.


These days there are so many options, like folded chairs and tables. You can always use them when needed. Some of these fit inside the construct of the table so you won’t need extra space to keep these. You can also use small size beds, sofa beds in small rooms. These days there are so many options in the market, like multi functional furniture. You can always make use of this for small rooms.
