Beige walls and mirror cases have stopped being the only rescue for registration of the extended rooms long ago. Designers invent all new ways to cope with deficiency of space so that to the owner it was comfortable in the updated dwelling.
Below the collection of the freshest interior finds which prove: main not the number of square meters, and how they are used.
The main thing governed — not to mold all furniture along one wall, whether it be kitchen, a drawing room or the bedroom. Such arrangement will only emphasize the extended room form. How to get rid of this effect in the dining room, tell here.
One more way "remove length" — to use various invoices, and not only on opposite walls, but also within one wall. It will help to break the room into several zones. At the same time it is possible to combine both materials, and wall-paper imitating them.
If the space allows, it is possible to counterbalance the extended room by means of arches, columns, podiums or decorative fireplaces. The located in a middle part of the room, such element will draw attention to her center and will visually make the room less extended. How to create the same drawing room, read here.
If room length at least by one and a half times exceeds width, it is worth being engaged in her zoning. It can be done by means of arrangement of furniture, use other (unlike the most part of the room) finishings of walls, a decor and additional lighting. And mirrors will help to increase space visually. Other examples of zoning can be found here.
One more ban for the narrow room — the only source of lighting. Especially if it is a bulky chandelier. For the extended rooms designers choose chandeliers on an easy framework with several plafonds, and then complement them with lamps at a headboard of a bed or a back of a sofa, lamps over a desk, a garland at a mirror and other elements. Several examples here.
It is possible to get rid of feeling of the room - "car" by means of color accent and also pictures and rugs with the geometrical drawing. Such elements create the volume and depth, visually expanding space, as in work of these designers.
The abundance of trifles like photos and pictures on one of long walls will only strengthen an impression of the extended space. The same, however, will occur if to leave a wall empty. An alternative — a big horizontal in a middle part of a wall. It can be a mirror, a panel or a picture. It is recommended to place such element within a zone to which it belongs, but not on border of two sites of the room in any way.
If the room not only narrow, but also small, for a small window in it is more practical to use to blinds or a rolshtor. Usual curtains and portieres "will eat" already scarce space, and the laconic option will allow to create a cosiness even in the small room.
It is longitudinal the laid parquet creates illusion of the movement, focusing attention on room length. Not only cross laying, but also replacement with a tile, for example hexagonal will help to deal with it.
It is wrong to believe that cream or gentle-beige shades will become a panacea in itself. On the contrary, identical color short and long walls "will extend" the room. There are two easy ways of it to avoid.
First, the window frames and doorways located in a face wall can be painted in contrast color. Such reception kind of will put these elements in the forefront, distracting from a room form.
Secondly, it is possible to arrive more considerably and to paint all face wall more dark color. It is also possible to use wall-paper of brighter shade. The accent by means of color visually "brings closer" a distant wall to the center of the room, doing the room not such narrow. In reality at your disposal there will be a former area suitable to create a cozy corner.
