Miri Property Interior Design Ideas: Space Illusion

Posted by tasan@developer on October 12, 2021

In Miri, most people think that hiring an interior designer to design your property is not necessary and most often this service will only be perceived as a luxurious service. However, this is not the only restriction you should have. Interior designs can help you to create the spacious and clean space illusion, which is especially essential when your Miri property is relatively small in size. This illusions of space combined with brilliantly designed furniture pieces, practical storage ideas, and thought out organizational plans can only help us achieve the required interior. 


Now you may be wondering and looking around your property and realise that your home might not be as spacious as you want it to be. If your property decoration really doesn’t feature enough open space to create a trendy design, you don’t have to worry. In this blog, Tasan will show you how to work on the creation of space illusion to achieve the look! 



Embrace Monochrome


While you may love to cathe your rooms in colours, this may actually give the illusion of narrow and overcrowded space. In contrast, a more simple colour theme such as the monochrome colour schemes allows the eyes to move more easily around the room as they are not constantly interrupted by different visual stimuli. So if you’re thinking of ways to magically make your room bigger, you may want to try painting your room into white or other shades of white.

If you think that it is too blank, you could also add one or two bold pieces to your living room. You may want to have a stroll at places such as SSF Home or other decorative store for one. A statue made of reflective material would be the best! This will lead us to our second point.



Use Mirrors


Mirrors or reflective materials reflect lights, which can make your living space feel airy and spacious. These characteristics could also help to add depth as you are reflecting the existing space in a room. An odd ceiling-to-floor mirror can also transform a room instantly when place strategically. One of the most effective places to do so, is to place a mirror opposite a window to harness as much natural light as possible.



Be Selective With Your Furniture 

An obvious tip to have your space look spacious is definitely to avoid huge furniture. Couches and sofas which are raised by legs should also be utilised as skirting around the bottom blocks light. Furniture made of light woods such as beech is always a good idea. But you should think carefully about what you need and what you don’t to avoid overcrowding. Often, going minimalist with your furnishing could be able to save up your precious space. 



Create Large Expanses Of Floor Space

For most of the time, different flooring for one area breaks the space and gives people the illusion of smaller space for each area. If you have an open-plan space in your home, you might want to maintain one type of consistent flooring throughout. For instance, you do not want to have a carpet in your living room and tile flooring in your dining room if they aren’t divided by a wall. Choose something light, whether it be a light-coloured carpet or wooden flooring and be consistent throughout. 



Curtains and Drapes, Your Besties 

Natural light always makes a room appear bigger, so make sure you always have your windows clear of any blockage. Closing your windows with heavy and dark curtains may make things look crowded. Then when and how to use them? 

You may fit them well above the top of the window – you could reserve a space up above the window or cut a box into the ceiling to hide the curtains up. When letting them down, make sure to have them down until the floor. This can help to create an illusion of a larger window, thus a larger perceived size of the room.



Keep The lights low 

Ceiling lights can often create large shadows which could make the space seem smaller. To avoid this, you could have plenty of low-level lights in the room, on the wall, standing lights or on tables and desks. Ceiling lights are essential, perhaps you could get pendant lights and suspend them down to reflect the light. 



If you are looking forward to renovating your property in Miri, all these may be useful when you are trying to make your house look even bigger and cleaner.
