While it’s fun to experiment with large spaces, one of the most cumbersome aspects that people struggle with is how to make a large space feel cozy and comfortable. In today’s post, we will provide you with a few tips that you can use to help you make your open-concept floor plan feel more like home.
Use an L-Shaped Sectional
There’s nothing more inviting than a large comfortable couch in the middle of the room. However, more often than not, there’s not always enough space to invest in the large sectional couch that you have always wanted. If you’re faced with a large living room that needs a place for your guests to settle in, now is the chance to use a sectional to your advantage! Adding a sectional sofa to a large space will make the room feel more comfortable and less empty and uninviting. Not to mention, if you’re having trouble breaking the room into different sections, you can always place the sectional in such a way that it will divide the room in half.
Paint With Two Different Colors
In some cases, you want your space to appear taller, so you add in long curtains or tall plants to draw the eyes towards the ceiling. That being said, if the room is as tall as it is wide, you may be striving for the opposite effect. One way that you can help the room appear smaller and give it the homey feeling that you desire is to paint the room with two colors. You can achieve this in a variety of ways. For example, if the walls are naturally broken up with a decorative chair rail, you can paint the wall below the rail with one color and paint above the rail with another. This will give your walls the appearance of being shorter, thus making the room feel as though it is smaller than it is.
Invest in Large Ottomans
When you’re trying to save as much space as possible, coffee tables offer storage space while also helping the room feel complete. If you’re working with a larger space, you may consider large ottomans as a replacement for coffee tables. Large ottomans not only give you a place to rest your feet, but also have an aura of comfort that can aid in making a big room seem less intimidating. Not to mention, some larger ottomans have built-in storage or can act as extra seating if you’re in a pinch.
