By: Jeff Schuman
Are you trying to make a small bedroom seem larger than it really is? This is a common problem in interior decorating. It is not easy to make a small bedroom appear larger, but with the information given in this article you should be on your way to a larger looking room.

The first thing you need to do is take a look at the lighting and color of the room. If the room is too dark it will make a room seem closed-in and small. By increasing the lighting of the room and painting it a light color, you will be able to make the room look bigger. Because they will block out too much light using thick curtains is usually a bad idea.

By painting the walls of your room a dark color you make the room seem dark and cramped. This is good if you want to make a large room seem cozy, but not good if you want to make a small room look big.

You should move your furniture around every once in a while into different positions. This keeps the room interesting and allows you to find the best position for the furniture. It also allows you to find creative positions that you would have otherwise never found if you would not have moved the furniture.

The second thing you need to do is take a look at the position and size of your furniture. Furniture that is big will appear to be taking up a lot of space in the room. By buying smaller furniture you will get the appearance that the room is bigger. Color is another thing you need to consider. By choosing furniture that has a light color it will have the same effect as the light colors of the walls.

The final thing you can do to make a room look larger is place wall mirrors in it. Wall mirrors give the illusion of creating more space in a small room. You are able to increase the illusion more if you have the mirror catch light from the window or lamps.

At one point in your life you are going to have to figure out how to make a small room appear larger. It is common problem for interior decorators, but one that can be fixed. With the information in this article you should be on your way to a larger looking room in no time.
