As professional property stylists, this would
have to be one of the most common requests
we receive from our clients. Here are 7 tips
to ensure your home is feeling bright, airy
If you own the home and can paint the walls,
we suggest opting for a light paint colour
that has a similar tone to your flooring. For
example, if you have grey tiles or carpet,
then use a very light grey paint colour.
It’s a job we all put off doing, but once it’s
done, you’ll be so happy with yourself.
Removing unnecessary items from your
living area such as excess trinkets, kids’
toys, and paperwork is a great start.
Evaluate your lounge – is it bulky and chunky?
If so, it might be worthwhile to upgrade to
a new lounge that doesn’t overcrowd the
space you’re highlighting. Ensure it has
legs, so it’s raised from the floor to enhance
the spaciousness if the room isn’t too large.
A large, oversized artwork is a great way
to make a statement in a home, as long as
you’ve got the wall space to do so. A large
mirror is another fantastic way of making a
room feel spacious and can reflect beautiful
aspects of your home, such as the outdoors.
Using a rug in a living area is essential as it
defines the living area and can really bring
the whole room together. If you’ve got a
dramatic artwork, then look at toning down
the room with a plain rug.
Lighting is another fantastic way of creating
the illusion of a spacious room. Ensure
blinds or curtains are open and ceiling lights
are turned on. Floor lamps add light to a
room, whilst also adding height, therefore
drawing the eye upwards.
If you have a combined lounge and dining
area, a fantastic way of making the small
dining area feel spacious is by using a round
table with a glass top, which creates an
illusion of space.
