People in bigger city living in smaller apartments deal with space issue, setting up a drawing room ,living room ,dinning room ,tv cabinet, library all in one space is a challenge, but working up with some solutions can help look a space bigger as well as comfortable.
Starting with Colours, that play an important role with space. Its the first impression that anyone makes out of the space made. lighter colours definitely give illusion for bigger space whereas darker or brighter hues make space look smaller. So try choosing lighter and neutral colour for walls from palette for paint.
For ceiling, I will strongly recommend choosing only white colour. (The rule is, you should opt lighter shade for the ceiling than the walls and it will make your walls look higher) Also go for simple design do not make too much fussy false ceiling, it gives heavy and bulky look.
Recommended the Same thing with curtain, choose white, off-white, creamer or pastel shades. As it covers a big portion of the wall. One good trick is that try covering full walls for windows, they will appear huge, what you have to do is raise the curtain rod to the top of the wall and hang drapes touching the floor. This is a simple way but making a big difference. Allow maximising use of natural light in your space. Mirrors can play a vital role in making your space look bigger than actual, by using it makes the place roomier also they reflects light, but I will suggest use as per vaastu. There are some areas one should not fix them. (Avoid mirrors facing to the north) You can really feel the difference before and after.
When it comes to furnishing keep your furniture minimalistic ,don’t just overcrowd what you have ,remove what is not necessary. For example, If its a bedroom then a bed is must and may be a love seat sofa or a chair. You don’t need to add too many. Instead of heavy and big, keep light and easily movable furniture.
Instead of one big centre table put two-three small table set, its trendy too and utilises less space. Keep furniture size proportionate to the room. You cannot put an oversized dinning table which will block movability. Or too much sitting that blocks area.
Get low sitting arrangements, this not only makes the sitting comfortable but, gives a lot of space on wall(huge wall effect).Try choosing Furniture raised to leg as they give the depth effect and allows flow of energy.
Use of art, decoration, wall-hangings and murals should be done wisely. Such as, Nailing paintings that has depth effect reflects intensity.
Don’t use too much paintings, your home is not an art gallery.
Don’t let a single space unused also, get good organisers for storing purposes. Try using furniture that can be multipurpose. As a trunk is used as a storage as well as a coffee table too.
Kernig krafts has a vast variety of furnitures for full home furnishing ,they can also make bespoke furniture in the best price.
lastly, the flooring, choose same flooring throughout living ,dining ,kitchen area etc. or those which are connected ,choosing different style of tiles gives separation in mind and hence place look smaller than actual.
You cannot make a small area actual big in the measurements, but can surely make it look bigger keeping in mind these points.
