Trinidad Washington DC Realtor: 5 Tips to Make Your Bedroom Seem Bigger
Trinidad Washington DC Realtor Michelle Buckman wants to show your home at its best. If you follow these tips, your bedroom will seem bigger – and better – to potential home buyers.
Cramming too much furniture into a tight bedroom? Maybe you've placed the furniture in a way that creates awkward traffic patterns. Yep. You're not alone. When it comes to designing and furnishing a small space, those are two of the biggest offenders. But there are some tips and tricks that can help you make a small bedroom seem larger.
- Scale down the size and amount of furniture, and raise the drapes. Replace a King-sized bed with a Queen, replace a wide dresser with a tall and narrow dresser, and take out one of the nightstands. Hang drapes close to the ceiling, and make the windows and room appear taller.
- Light and airy colors: it’s true – light colors make a room seem larger, however, so do light color drapes, and bed linens. Break up all the light with a few dark colored accent pillows or art pieces.
- Add storage: built in shelves, painted a contrasting color in the back and going up to the ceiling, are a great way to store books, photos and other personal items.
- Furniture placement: place bed across from the door, if possible. In a small room with a twin-sized or double-sized bed, place it against a wall and make it a daybed.
- Make use of mirrors to expand the size of the room.
