Recommended Posts

Provide Proper Lighting

Light can play a huge role in transforming a room. If you want to achieve a relaxing ambience, you can consider hanging a large pendant light above the top of the dining table, or the central table in the living area. Another tip is to add a dimmer switch to have a more dramatic and subtle glow.

If you want to perfectly blend the proper lighting and ambience, you must also pay attention to the color that your shade will throw around the room, and which direction the light will stream into. If you want to attain low illumination, you must make sure that the shade doesn't have any opening at the top. You can also buy light bulbs that are made to only throw light downwards. Keep in mind that darker shades will let some light out of the shade; while warm-colored shades, including bronze and reds, will create a reddish-pink glow inside the room.

Find The Right Paint Color

There are color charts available which will help you choose which paint color you want; however, this can still be tricky. To be safe, you can buy sample paint in one or two shades lighter than the one you really want, then try painting a small area of your room. You can also paint them into pieces of thick white paper and display them on the walls. Doing so will help you visualize what the room will look like using a particular paint color. Remember that the color of the room can have a significant effect on the room's ambience and size. The paint color can also trick the eyes into thinking that a small room is bigger than its actual size.

Arrangement Of Furniture And Fixtures

It is vital to ensure that the furniture and fixtures in the room are properly arranged and placed. You must bear in mind the proper flow of passage in the room. You must also allow for enough space between each fixture. For instance, if you are designing your living room, the coffee table and sofas must have at least 50cm between them. You must also place the sofas and chairs in the right angles so as to avoid restricting traffic. If you are planning to re-decorate your bedroom, you must put enough space between the bed and wardrobes. You can go for smaller cabinet with sliding doors and a smaller bed if the room is too small.
