Perfection is hard to achieve, and in reality, almost all houses, flats, apartments, lavish villas, bungalows, cottages, etc., have awkward spaces, which can be a narrow hallway or tiny study struggling as double to be a spare bedroom or have an odd-shaped lounge.
Surprisingly these awkward spaces can be turned into assets in the home. You can transfer the problem rooms into charming-looking and original spaces with knowledge and the ability to highlight positive points of space and minimize negative.
We all have a space or room that we desire to fix because it is too small, has a low ceiling, narrow, or has any undesirable features.
Pointers for using the awkward space of your home:
If your room is too big, divide them into intimate areas like a group couple of chairs with a loveseat, or set up two chairs and a small table, sofa, and chair, or an arrangement that will make the room intimate.
Internal windows are a smart way that will help increase light and give small rooms a welcome outlook to adjoining areas.
Narrow spaces: you can distract the attention from room narrowness if you add dramatic color or painting to shorter walls. If you place a sofa covered in horizontal strip fabric or a short wall will trick eyes into seeing walls wider.
The awkwardly shaped room can look awesome, too, when you decorate it boldly. Don’t décor it with half heart. Chose soft color, even a soft print; anything dark will make the wall look close. Soften angles and strong lines by painting walls and ceiling of white color or pale color, receding. Innovate the room with symmetrical displays on the shelves and table to offset the angles.
If your ceiling is too low, you can add height to a room with tall and vertical elements like long curtains and tall lamps, paint the ceiling color light, add a bookcase, and make the room seem open and bright. Use uplighters to direct soft light towards the ceiling. Accentuate vertical floor to ceiling stripes on walls.
If the room is tall, you can incorporate horizontal lines in the room and add shelves, art, and crown moldings, which will help you lower the height. You can install molding or chair rails; this will visually shorten the room. Paint ceiling dark or warm color.
Uncover windows by opting for the shutters in place of curtains; sweep drapes clear of frames on walls, and paint garden fences and walls white which will help bounce light into the interior.
Pale color paving stones below doors and windows for a lightening effect
Have sparkly and shiny surfaces for the bounce of light around rooms like mirrors, kitchen units, and mirrored splashbacks.
