Small Spaces, Bold Colors

Thinking of decorating a small space in your house or giving your small apartment a make over? Small spaces can be a challenge to decorate but if you dare to be bold, then you will see the potential that your small space has. When looking at paint colors you have to be careful to not chose the wrong color because it can make the room feel claustrophobic, or dark. Also, if you have too much furniture, the room can feel crowded, and too much pattern or the wrong patterns will make the room look busy. Using light colors will make walls appear to be further away from each other, creating a bright and airy feel. If you are thinking of using light colors, consider light blues, greens, light grays and neutrals.

If you are more on the adventurous side, then go bold in a small space and consider using, large-scale florals, graphic prints, vertical or horizontal stripes. The horizontal stripes will give a small narrow room a bigger look. Vertical stripes will make a low ceiling seem taller. Even a small space like a bathroom or hallway or even small kitchen or office can seem bigger if you choose the right colors. These are a few pictures that I found online showing how beautiful small spaces can be.
