High and airy rooms, a large, spacious bedroom and a huge bathing oasis. These are things many would wish for within the confines of their home. However, in the housing market, things usually look a little different. The rooms are not quite as big, the entrance hall rather narrow and the bathroom is at first glance no wellness oasis. But, with good planning and a few tricks, even smaller apartments can be turned into very cozy homes. Here's how it works:
Bright walls make rooms look bigger
Before furnishing the home, you can make the rooms look bigger by choosing the right paint for the walls. Bright colors make living spaces look bigger, while dark colors or coarse wallpaper will make the place look smaller and narrower. Adding color accents is best done with colorful accessories such as pictures, vases or cushions. This will save you the time-consuming painting and these colored accessories can be easily changed and replaced. Repainting a whole wall, is much, much more expensive.
