Small rooms are more than present in the projects of houses and apartments. For the disillusioned with lack of space, the good news is that simple decorating tips can help make the bedrooms more practical and larger looking. Are you interested? Check out the suggestions of the architects Sergio Astrauskiene and Gleice Cantero.
Dark colors can give the appearance that the room is even smaller. Therefore, invest in light tones, which impart a sense of amplitude. The double room designed by the architect Maria Fernanda Rodrigues follows this tip.
Some details are also welcome. The architect Gleice explained that one of the walls can count on panels, wallpaper, stickers. “It’s interesting to opt for lighter tones. If you want a wallpaper with pink stripes, let the background be beige, of course. An all-colored paper reduces the room, “added Astrauskiene.
Invest in mirrors
Mirrors are not just for looking. In the decoration, they have the function of providing a greater aspect to the environments. One suggestion of the architect Gleice Cantero is to attach them to the sliding door of the closet. So they do not take up space on the wall.
Bed drawers are a good choice for small environments. Some box models already come with them. If you do not find them, it’s worth even betting on a box mattress in a conventional bed.
The headboard is an important item of decoration, which should harmonize with the style of the rest of the project, as Gleice said. It can be cushioned, wooden, iron. The one of the photo, idealized by the interior designer Fabio Galeazzo, is covered in silk straw.
Abuse of walls
The walls of small rooms are large allied. Abuse of them with suspended details, as shown in the photo environment, designed by the architect Maricy Borges. Shelves and niches collaborate with the organization.
Objects and bedding
The light environment can gain color and details through rugs, bedding, cushions, colored chair, ottoman, pictures. All this without exaggeration, of course, and with complementary shades. If you get nauseous from the visual, just change the objects and tissues. The aspect changes without spending too much. In the photo room, proposed by the architect Sergio Astrauskiene, the cushions give an extra charm.
Placing the television on the wall, as in the project carried out by the architect Maria Fernanda Rodrigues, is an option to occupy less space in the furniture. “But you have to be careful what you’re going to call her. It’s important to think about where to put the DVD, the video game, the cable TV set, “said architect Gleice.
Picture frames can enhance the decor and revive memories. It is allowed to invest in frames of different sizes and models depending on the style of the owner of the room. In the dormitory designed by the architect Maria Fernanda Rodrigues, the small shelves serve as support for the photos of the couple.
