Rental residences come in different shapes and sizes, as well as the rooms within them. Based on the style and age of your Sun Prairie property, you may find that the bedrooms in your rental home are on the small side by today’s standards. Rooms that feel dark and cramped are not appealing to potential tenants and it may make it difficult to get your rental home leased right away. The positive aspect is that there is plenty you can do to optimize the appearance and feel of small bedrooms. By observing certain guidelines, you can make bedrooms feel bigger than they really are.
The first area most design enthusiasts embark on is with paint color. As to small rooms, your choice of paint can make a world of difference. Interior designers suggest using light colors in a single color family. Coordination is the solution to change narrow rooms into appearing bigger than they actually are. Dark or bright colors and accent walls will divide the flow of the room, making it look smaller.
A further fundamental design approach is to stain the trim a light color. White is a particularly popular choice because of the way it reflects light and gives a clean, airy feel to space. When the trim is lighter than the wall color, this raises a sense of depth that can assist a rather small room into appearing wider than it is.
Though it sounds apparent, one excellent measure to make a bedroom become wider is blank, empty space. Shadowy or colossal light fixtures, long, massive curtains, and added elements can make a smaller room feel full. If your rental home is furnished, using furniture with narrow lines and legs that lift it up off the floor can help keep the room from feeling cramped. Additional advice is to put up sheer drapes and hang them just underneath the ceiling, enticing the eye to look overhead and lending the room a spacious atmosphere.
Several other things you can do to make a small room larger consist of acceptable lighting and shiny surfaces. Lots of bedrooms go along with a single overhead light that may or may not exhibit the room in the most appealing light. Consider adding additional lighting to banish dark corners or brighten a closet. Reflective surfaces like mirrors or glass can also give light and depth to a little room. Consider attaching a tall mirror on a door or close by a window to turn the room into a more seemingly bigger space.
