Painting and Decorating ideas for a Small Living Space in London

Many of us dream about living in large homes with enough space to fill our hearts' delight but living in smaller homes could feel overcrowded and limit the amount of space you have. There are a few painting and decorating tips you can take on board to help open up the existing space in your home. 


Bring nature inside

Bringing nature indoors is one of the best ways to design any home, particularly tiny spaces. The aim is to create a natural flow from the outside to the inside. This can help you make the room feel more spacious before you even hire painters and decorators.  

The easiest and most usual way to do this is to add some small to large house plants. Consider using natural-toned colours, such as richer greens, yellows, and reds, to keep with the concept.


Add Mirrors

Mirrors are your best friend when it comes to ceating space in a smaller room. This is because mirrors create an illusion of space. Adding a mirror near a window, for example, will give the appearance that it extends further into the room. Another great feature of mirrors is how well they reflect light, especially if you place them in darker spaces, will enable the light to be reflected more evenly across the space.


Choose Vertical Stripes

Vertical stripes are a necessary for tiny spaces, according to experts working for professional painting and decorating firms. These stripes provide the illusion of thinner and higher rooms. 

Painting and decorating your walls with vertical stripes of two colours can naturally make the room's ceiling appear a lot taller than usual, giving the space a more spacious impression.
