Well planned and aesthetically, of course, There can be no space, regardless of size and shape. It is only important to know some secrets and apply them in practice, if it is a complex area.

For example, in the spacious living-day furniture, the walls are not, and the functional groups are uniformly decorated throughout the floor, and are not reminiscent of a dance lesson. A little cozy room requires the least attention and includes the use of compact, elegant furniture in the form of only the most necessary and the most functional objects.

And yet, today we will focus on the characteristics of your narrow spaces, spacious, small or with medium dimensions in the area. For all of them, there are special techniques listed below in this article designed to help with the design of the narrow space.

How to equip the interior of a narrow space

Two main problems arise in the arrangement of narrow spaces, which must be met:

The first is to visually expand the space, narrow and elongated in the plan. The second requires careful and thoughtful approach to planning, namely the arrangement of the most important large furniture.

Step 1: Brighte's narrow room

In the event that the narrow space creates a feeling of tightness and stiffness, you may feel physically. In order not to make common mistakes, primarily, determine the colors on the main surfaces.

So it is better to give up too dark and saturated colors, which are used instead of bright colors are preferred. For example, if the narrow space is quite high, it is possible to easily apply a dark floor, thanks some "lower" due to suspension or stress structures. The longitudinal walls are better to emit light shadow with a cold midtone (pastel purple, silver, light blue, mint, white), as well as a cool line will expand the crowded space visually. To finish walls (short), on the contrary, you can use a warmer shade – visually shorten the space and bring it to a square shape.



Step 2: Use the cross-sections

The space between the longitudinal walls seems more effective to apply such technology as the use of horizontal members between them. These elements can be cross-beams in the roof construction, floorboards, horizontal stripes in the pattern of the carpet or diagonal laying parquet.

Even in the wall or decorate the transverse (short) walls need to use horizontal motifs: stripes, patterns, zigzag patterns or waves, and so on.



Step 3: Set the correct furniture

Objects that form a narrow space environment and should be chosen carefully.

Chairs, couches and beds should be cardboard decks, wardrobes, dresses and shelves should be laid shallow, and if they have folding doors, better if the facade is smooth, without relief and interior.

Among the rest of the furniture, most suitable for your narrow room can distinguish objects with mirrored facades (chests, cupboards, brackets) because visually they almost interact with the surrounding environment, becomes an integral part of this.




Step 4: Expand space mirrors

You will of course get familiar function. Mirror increase the space visually and make it more light, airy. But as this is often overlooked or ignored it is not clear, because the room, decorated with mirrored tiles, panels or small decor becomes more elevated and front view.

It should be noted that the use of large-scale mirrors in the interior of the narrow bedrooms – this is a rather controversial issue due to the appearance of feelings of anxiety, especially at night. So, to recommend to the mirror design, we still come for living rooms, dining rooms, corridors and corridors, where the reflective surface not only extends the narrow space, but will do a part of the solemnity.


Step 5: Use the light evenly

A well-lit room creates a duintuitive sense of well-being, peace and quiet. But on the contrary, feelings arise when in a crowded space with one or two dim lamps. Light is a key factor in creating beautiful, functional, and generally, a successful interior, therefore, still in the planning stage or space division, it is necessary to consider the presence and placement of several light sources, the basic and further.

The narrow room is the main source of two (roof) can easily lift the system, and additional table lamps, wall lamps and floor lamps.


Step 6: Apply visual illusion

We came to the decorative design of complex tight space, which, however, has a clear impact on the visual impression of positive living spaces. It is an application of optical illusions, namely paintings, murals, photographs illustrating the three-dimensional images of objects, modern themed still life, art installations, landscape with a strong outlook, and other subjects, creating a non-existent amount of pseudo-narrow space .

Looking at the image of the space, landscape, receding to the horizon, or a portrait, executed in the technology by stressed realism, creates the effect of presence in the image, and the surface of the walls becomes deep and texture.
