How To Make Your Condo Bedroom Look Bigger

Jan 24, 2022

Many of us see our ideal bedroom as having a spacious walk-in closet, a king-size bed with a canopy, expansive windows that let in lots of light, and enough storage space for all of our condo living possessions. However, if we live in big and busy cities, we certainly live in a much smaller, less spacious room than we might afford elsewhere. 

But don't worry, Vista Residences has these methods to make even the most minor bedrooms appear larger! There are several fast and easy tricks to fool the eye into believing you have more space to work with than you have. Here's how a little rearranging can go a long way, from mirrors to shelves. Follow the recommendations below to make your little condo living bedroom appear more significant than you ever imagined!

How To Make Your Condo Living Bedroom Look Bigger Through Furniture

Because of the restricted space, purchasing furniture for a tiny bedroom might be difficult. However, having less space allows you to be more creative in terms of the sort of furniture you buy and how it affects the overall design of the condo design area. Continue reading for more surprising bedroom decor ideas.

Keep it simple.

This one may seem apparent, but it is still worth addressing. With less debris on the floor, your room will appear to have more space. Combining objects that may serve several functions is one method to minimize the furniture in your room while making the condo living space appear larger. Some tables and ottomans, for example, include secret storage sections that may be utilized to store additional pillows and blankets. There are also space-saving bed frames with built-in drawers that would be ideal as a dresser replacement!

Include Built-in Storage.

Built-in storage is a great option for a tiny bedroom because it doesn't take up too much floor space. Built-in shelves, headboards with built-in storage, box beds, hydraulic beds, a window seat with storage, and other forms of built-in storage can be found in the bedroom. These pieces of furniture take up less space and make the area appear larger.

Get shorter furniture.

You probably haven't considered this bit of advice before, but it makes perfect sense! If you keep your furniture short and low to the ground, there will be more space at the top of the room, making the ceiling appear taller! This method also protects the walls from scuffs and scratches, and clean walls appear larger.

Try out clear acrylic furniture.

Decorating your condo living bedroom in a tiny area might be very difficult. The more furniture you put in a room, the smaller it seems. However, because acrylic furniture is clear, it is ideal for usage in compact spaces. We can see straight through the furniture because we can see through it.

This is due to the fact that light shines through, giving your space a bright and airy appearance. Light may also bounce off furniture, creating the illusion of extra space—just like a mirror. It has the optical effect of making tiny rooms look larger than they are since it is translucent. Apart from your bedroom, you can also try it out in small spaces like your home office or kitchen—you'll definitely fall in love with the condo design and appearance it gives!

Use mirrors.

If you've ever wondered, "Do mirrors make a room appear bigger?" well, Vista Residences's answer is a resounding "Yes." Mirrors may make your condo living bedroom space appear larger and more open. To create the appearance of depth, choose a focal point and aim your mirrors toward it. Mirrors also reflect both natural and artificial light, making a space appear brighter during the day and night. It is incredibly beneficial to place a mirror near a window to reflect the world outside.

Mirrors on the walls and glass tabletops will also help to open up the space, as will mirrored cabinet doors. Have you ever considered putting mirrors on the floor? That's another ingenious method to make a space appear larger.

How To Make Your Condo Living Bedroom Look Bigger Through Lighting

Natural light brightens and expands the interior of any condo living room, which would be useful for making your condo living bedroom look bigger. That's fantastic if you have access to natural light. But don't be disheartened if you don't. Using lighting equipment creates some unique effects. You'll be surprised at how much of a difference one tiny change can make.

If you have access to natural light, bringing it into your home through huge windows will quickly connect the room with the outside, eliminating the need for a door. Use sheer window coverings or draw them fully back to give in more light. If the view is unappealing, place plants or flowers near the windows and use lighting to brighten the room.

How To Make Your Condo Living Bedroom Look Bigger Through Paint

Aside from having the proper scale of furniture, choosing the right wall paint and color scheme can make your condo living bedroom look bigger. Even if you're restricted by room and natural light, the color of your paint may make a great difference in your cramped bedroom surroundings. Here are paint tips from Vista Residences to make your condo living bedroom space appear larger.

Have unity with the colors.

Use the same color for the ceilings, trim, and doors throughout the house. Make them a shade or two lighter than the color of your walls. Similarly, stick to the same color scheme. It's tempting to paint bathrooms or bedrooms a different color from the rest of the house at times.

Using a single color (or a group of colors that are closely related), on the other hand, creates a cohesive effect in your room. As you walk from room to room, your eye will be encouraged to glide effortlessly.

Choose between light and dark.

Lighter colors, we've all heard, make a room appear larger. They do, in general, since they reflect light. However, don't think bright hues are the only way to go. However, lighter walls, particularly pure white walls, can make a space feel like a bland, lifeless box. Instead, choose a light neutral with the appropriate undertone to lighten and warm the space. 

Dark hues can also be used in tiny areas. They blur the edges of the walls while creating a dramatic, intimate feel. This helps to give the impression of a larger space.

We aren't all fortunate enough to have the largest room in our residence. It’s normal for you to occasionally desire a larger area when you need to save money on rent or live in a city with infamously small accommodations. Using the bedroom condo design ideas given above will allow you to live out your desire to have a larger condo living bedroom, even if you can only follow a few of these design tips.
