A lot has been spoken about styling for small rooms but we often forget the big ones. Big rooms come with their own set of challenges. Small rooms have issues like space; big rooms have issues like too much space! While big rooms can be great for entertaining a lot of people, they cannot serve as cosy or comfortable spaces for everyday living.
So how can you make a big space livelier? Here are some simple ways to achieve this. Read on.
Zone it out: In small rooms there's only so much space for a sitting area. In a larger space, you have an opportunity to create different areas like gaming zone, dining area, reading corner, etc. It depends on your needs as to how you wish to divide the space. For large families, you can create different sit outs and living spaces. If you have family members who are into gaming, a gaming area can be dedicated. You can create cosy nooks by creating special reading nooks to utilize the space better.
Create clear division lines: The expanse of your room can be a challenge, while decorating. Creating clear dividers can help break this emptiness. You can take help of beams, pillars, curtains, small walls or wallpapers to create these divisions. The couch can be placed having its back to demarcate a specific area or have huge plants or lamps as dividers.
Think big: When decorating a large room, you have to think of having big things like large sofas rather than collecting small ones, as it makes the room appear cluttered. Huge design pieces, coffee tables, lamps will do the trick for you.
The tall and short of it: If you have high ceilings then make sure you buy taller furniture to balance it out. Smaller furniture can make the ceiling look disproportionately large, disturbing the symmetry of the space. You can even opt for a taller bookcase, lamps and other accessories.
