It can be difficult to make the right decorative choices in a large, empty room. Sometimes hanging art on the wall or moving your furniture to a different corner just isn’t enough to make such a large, plain environment feel warm and inviting. When you enter a room in your home, you want it to feel like you are welcome.
If there is a large room in your home that you are having difficulty decorating, don’t just pack it with clutter for the sake of taking up space. That can end up being more stressful than the original empty space. When you are considering bringing more of a cozy home feeling to large room, there are a few main things to keep in mind.
One of the main things that can make a room feel cold and uninviting are the choices of color. Some colors are very beautiful, but not always appropriate for your space. A bright colored paint that looked great in the store, for instance, could end up making your walls look even larger. If you want to make your room cozier, be sure to opt for colors that are warm, neutral, or earthy, and somewhat dark. Choosing these types of colors makes it seem almost as if the walls are closer to you, instantly bringing a feeling that is already more like home.
Appropriately Sized Furniture
Imagine filling your bedroom today with all of the furniture and decorations you had as a child. It is easy to see that the size of the furniture in your room is extremely important. Putting small pieces of furniture in a big, open space creates an even bigger feeling of separation. When you are looking for furniture to fill your large room, be sure to keep an eye out for the bigger pieces. Search for furniture with tall and broad features that will take up plenty of floor and wall space. Bigger isn’t always better, but in this case it is best.
Indoor Water Features
Once you have chosen the color of your walls, and the furniture you like most, the last step is adding an indoor waterfall or a water wall to complement your design. A beautiful wall piece will turn your large, open space into a viewing area where you can always enjoy the beauty and tranquility of a gentle waterfall. A choice like this will make your walls much more dynamic, and the steady flow of the water will calm you, and even help you sleep.
You don’t have to accept your large room and all of its unforgiving space. Just a few specific changes can make all the difference in the world. By making certain decorative decisions, whats feels like a desolate cave can soon become a cozy, welcoming home.
