Making Your Space Larger Than It Appears

After spending a long day in a less than spacious office, it is nice to open your front door and walk into a room where you can stretch your legs.  While the Santa Clarita valley’s population is steadily growing, the amount of space in new homes and backyards are rapidly declining.

Making your living space appear larger now days is more of a necessity for growing families.  Choosing the right furniture for your living space can be a tedious job, but creating a spacious room with the right furniture can be easy and enjoyable.

One way to make your living space appear to be larger is to use multi-functional furniture.  Having a chest double as a coffee table is one way to save space while storing your valuables at the same time.  Also, using folding tables, an extendable dining table and a bed with drawers can all save you room in a smaller space.

If a more rustic look is your cup of tea, then the brand of furniture Dovetail might be just right for you.  Dovetail specializes in sprucing up re-claimed wood from boats and old buildings and transforms them into elegant furniture for your home.

Even if you have larger furniture, creating that ideal space is attainable.  By placing the larger furniture, like a book case or a night stand up against the wall you will eliminate the risk of breaking up the middle of the room. If you want to create some dimension in your small space, you can place the family couch or love seat at an angle so it leads the eye to a longer distance, as well as provide more storage space.  

Overbearing your walls with ornate pictures and paintings can seem overwhelming and actually make your room seem smaller.  All you need are one or two large paintings on your wall to do the trick.  Playing with different colors can give your room a splash of flair and ambiance.  

“Add mirrors and decorate the room with lighter shades of color,” said Julie Lafferty from The Right Place For Fine Furniture.
