Creating the Little – Big Room

Do you have a cozy room that you love but would like to create the illusion of more space?   The design professionals at Ennis Fine Furniture can accomplish that for you.  Here are just a few tips to start you on your way.

 

Rethink The Paint Scheme

For so many years dark paint and dramatic accent walls have been in vogue for interior paint.   If the goal is to create the illusion of more space, one must look to brighter hues.  A color palette that includes, whites, creams, pale grays and greens, as well as blues, will not only make your room brighter, it will open up the space.   A great design professional, like those at Ennis Fine Furniture, will be able to help you imagine the possibilities of how a new paint color palette can open up your space to new dimensions.

 

Make the most of Those Primary Furniture Pieces

Whether the dining area be big or small, people like to congregate around the dining room table; this is even more so if the dining room and living room are one and the same.

Tommy Bahama’s South Sea Table is perfect for the smaller space, not just because of it’s dimensions but because of the beautiful design influences of natural materials, such as: split rattan, crushed bamboo, and even travertine.  Take note of the geometric pass-through views the South Sea table delivers, as this also lends to the illusion of greater space.

To compliment the South Sea Table, and to be well aligned with our goal of creating the perception of copious space, we recommend to you the Kowloon Chair from Tommy Bahama.  The rich wood finishes and linen-white textures, with splashes of island color are bright and make the perfect complement to your dining table.  This intimate combination of table and chairs is a sophisticated, yet a relaxing place to enjoy dining with family and friends.

 

The Focal Piece Should Not be Small at All

As with every home-space your comfort has to be the greatest part of your consideration.  After all, your comfort is what home is all about.  Why not also make the “comfort” piece the focal point of your room?   And, here’s great news!  This piece does not need to be small; it should actually be spacious and splendid.   Take a look at the Bradington-Young Blair Swivel Tub Chair.   Bradington- Young created this rich, leather chair that is filled with a luxurious blend of down feathers and fibers just for you.  The Blair is available in a myriad of colors so this is also your opportunity to add a POP of color to your new design theme.  Best of all, comfort abounds in the Blair and you will feel spoiled every time you sit in this pillow-soft chair.

 

Create Something Grand With Mirrors

Mirrors are a great way to create the illusion of space and scale through reflection and depth.   By accessorizing your small space with well-placed mirrors, you can create the illusion of something that is, if not palatial, at least grand!

Stanley Furniture Accessories has several mirrors that are to be loved for their quality and clean, modern designs.  The Landscape Mirror by Stanley,  adds a bright, polished touch to your room that reflects light, as well as the reflection of your beautiful furnishings and the overall tasteful design elements of your room.

What creates the illusion of more space?  More mirrors, of course!

The Dario Silver Leaner Mirror by Uttermost is a wonderful example of an artisan mirror with impeccable design and build quality.  The Dario is long and slender so it naturally lends itself to the smaller room that has aspirations of palatial proportions!    Imagine, now, two (or three!) of these identical mirrors placed tightly together along vertical lines on a wall that has a good view to your living area and also receives sunlight.   Voila! Multiple mirrors multiply the sense of space and intensify the reflection of light in the room, which imbues the room with what seems to be additional square feet.  Magic!
