There are several secrets of apartment interior design that will help you visually expand even the smallest living space. In the previous article & # 171; Small apartment. Secrets of increasing space & # 187; we have already covered the secrets of increasing space and you can find many useful tips there.
Today we want to pay attention to how color and pattern can change the optics of space. And how to avoid gross mistakes that can spoil the feeling of a new renovation when choosing a color and pattern for decorating your apartment.
Let's start by choosing a pattern and pattern. And it doesn't even matter what you choose: a floral or geometric pattern, an ornate ornament or a mischievous ornament. There are basic rules to help you create a harmonious and balanced interior.
A large painting on the wall (for example, a wallpaper or a large decorative mural) on the far wall will visually shorten and diminish the space in the room. All attention will be paid to this element. But if your room is narrow and uncomfortable, to get rid of the feeling of “corridor” just you can use this technique.
But a small drawing of wallpaper or stencil painting will visually enlarge and expand the walls of the room. To do this, give preference to light shades of the selected color.
Although the transverse stripes move the room apart and make it wider, they visually lower the ceilings. Therefore, this method of expanding the space is suitable for rooms with high ceilings. The lines on the far wall shorten the room.
But the vertical stripes, on the contrary, lengthen the room and raise the ceilings visually higher. It is worth noting that the wider the stripes, the more noticeable the effect will be.
Transverse stripes on the floor, as well as on the wall, have a very ambiguous role. They are able to make the room wide, but at the same time short.
If, when entering the main door, the stripes on the floor are placed along the room, then they will visually lengthen its space … And the wider the stripes, and the more intense their color, the stronger this effect will be.
Pay special attention to the color of the floor. You don't often see a floor of some bright color. Most often, even if the walls are painted with an intense color, the floor is made more calm and traditional. But if your choice fell in favor of an unusual floor finish, it is worth remembering a few rules. They will also help you choose the right carpet for your interior.
A bright and dynamic red color for coloring the floor will strongly emphasize the boundaries of the floor, which will visually narrow the space of the room. Will make it feel like the floor is pressing against someone in the room and pressing it against the ceiling.
Blue shades (except dark blue) will fill the room with air, will be conducive to long rest, and the room will be spacious and wide.
The yellow floor and carpet will undoubtedly fill the space with sun and warmth. However, they can create a feeling of unstable support underfoot.
Green and its shades are very good color choices for the floor. A soft green carpet will create the impression of a spring lawn and arrange to walk along it.
If you decide to use bright colors in interior renovation, then it should be borne in mind that strong colors can significantly change the optical perception of space. For example, a room with a colored floor creates a sense of stability. He pushes the walls of the room up and in breadth. But in combination with a colored ceiling, the room will seem lower and wider. The feeling of space will be much larger than it actually is.
The combination of a colored floor with a colored back wall will emphasize its color even more, and the room will optically move to the sides.
A colored ceiling and back wall will make the room look shorter, but also widen it to the sides.
On the contrary, the combination of a bright floor with side walls makes the room narrower.
It is very common to paint one far wall in a bright color. This wall becomes a kind of background for highlighting, for example, furniture.
Colored side walls also make the space of the room narrower, extending it up, down and towards the far wall.
