This is because the color red gives an illusion of space in such a way that it makes the space look smaller, thus, it becomes more intimate, which could be intimidating for visitors especially the newly acquainted ones. Meanwhile, electric blue is also not suitable as colors of a wall because when seen in huge spaces, such as walls, it has a slight effect of inducing dizziness to some people, and any of your visitors could be one of them.
Size and Scale – Another good tip to remember is to pay attention to the size and scale of your furniture in relation to the size and scale of the given room. For example, living room designs with overstuffed, oversized furniture can look cluttered and tiny. Opt for furniture that is sleek and sized appropriately to fit the space. This should ring true for every room you are working in. Remember, furniture is an investment. It is an opportunity to start building a room you will love, it shouldn’t be taken upon likely. Shop around, look for the right piece. Don’t ever settle unless you’re sure it is of good quality and suits your space, your tastes and of course, your budget.
The best way to start from scratch is to use a floor planner or room layout program that allows you to recreate the bare essentials of a room or entire home. There is no better method to genuinely eliminate the current room layout from your minds eye. It’s very helpful to work from an overhead view of a room where you can simply drag furniture and home decor items and set them in place as desired. You can easily and quickly see how well things fit or don’t fit. Overall, this works great for performing furniture placement and calculating furniture sizes, but it falls short of providing all the elements necessary to create a new room design.
Quality Versus Quantity – It goes without saying that when you make large purchases, especially with furniture, that you opt for quality over quantity. For example, if you’re purchasing a sofa that you hope will blend into your living room design ideas, you’ll want to choose one that is of good quality. One that will last for many years. Sofas are expensive and even a sofa of modest quality can go for more than $1,000.
To obtain the truest perspective of how to best design the room, you need to be able to view that room from the inside, with every design aspect of the original room removed. You could do this to an existing room, but that’s easier said than done, especially if the space is being utilized at the time. But even if you could empty the space, your room design options will be limited to small attempts to envision how the design will all fit together.
