We are heading towards the end of the year and it’s definitely the most loved time of the year for many people. Xmas season, holiday season whatever you may call it, it’s been loved by many for many many years! In many countries where they experience the ice and the snow, it’s where everyone is basically indoors enjoying the holidays. Even if you and your family are enjoying the occasional chat by the fire place or even if you’re curled up with a good book, or buried under warm blankets either way it’s your way of celebrating. With most of your friends and family joining you at home, you expect the home space to be less cramped up. This is why we have ways on how you can make your home feel large enough to accommodate all the presents, the food and of course the people!
Focus attention on the lighting
One way to make your guests have the ‘wow’ effect is to hang an attention grabbing lamp or an elegant chandelier in your living room. Don’t let it hang too low, instead hang it in close proximity to the ceiling so that when your guests walk in their eyes will draw up above, making the room feel much taller.
Make your furniture stand out
One important rule to follow, do not hoard and overcrowd your living room with too many or too large pieces of furniture. Remove and get rid old bulky furniture and replace with new and trending design furniture.
Don’t commit yourself in buying more than what you actually need. Just stick to a few design furniture pieces that you love. Regardless if they are patterned or large, minimal furniture will set the needed tone for your living room.
Let your plants do the talking
Show off to your friends and family how much of a nature lover you are. It’s a known fact that indoor plants are beneficial to be kept at your home, however the dual purpose of placing plants that are significantly tall in height can make your home feel larger, check this dining room chairs. So go ahead, place some fancy tall potted plants next to a window or door to make the area feel more airy and large.
Shelf it and organize it!
One thing that can make or break the living space is how well you have organized items in your living room. If you have messy over crowded shelves its one thing that can make your living room feel cramped up. To deal with this fact, a great solution would be to install floating shelves along the walls in your room. Neatly organize the books and other items and disposes of whatever is not needed.
