  • orlando painting team opens up small roomsSmall houses are all the rage these days. The average homeowner is turning away from big, lofty and expansive and moving gradually to compact and efficient. But it can be hard to maintain a household with limited space if your family is growing. How can you get the most out of your space and give each room multiple purposes?

    The answer is a combination of hardware and decoration. From the Orlando painting team you can trust at Orlando Painting and Drywall, here are some ideas to help you make your room look bigger while using the most of your space:

     

    • Make the most of your vertical space. When you think you’ve run out of space on the ground, you can always look up. Install some wall shelves to provide maximum storage without cluttering up the floor. What’s more, the shelves will draw the eye upward, making your room seem taller.
    • Select products and materials that are durable and easy to clean. If you’re making your room into a multipurpose space, like an art studio or an office, everyone in the family will be frequenting the area – including the kids. As we all know, accidents happen, so you’ll want to select paint with a durable finish to make cleaning a breeze.
    • Choose a bright, neutral color to decorate your walls. Not only will this appeal to all residents of your home, it’ll open up the room quite a bit. Whereas dark paints absorb light and make the area seem cave-like, lighter colors reflect light, brightening up the space and lengthening your walls. Try any of Sherwin-Williams’ new neutral shades if you want to break away from white or beige.

     

    You’d be surprised at how comfortable a small room or home can feel with the right design. Between your storage upgrades and your flexible palette, you can revamp your room to suit just about any need you can think of.
