Making creative use of the space inside your house is the dream of many a homeowner. Sometimes, you just have to live your interior design and décor succeeding as functionality. Not all the time, however. Take a good look around your home and you can probably find some room where creativity comes into play either with or without the utilitarian addition of being functional. This is what is called using space for the purpose of imaginative design.
Glossy White Ceiling
A small ceiling area can be put to decorative use by painting it in glossy white enamel paint so that you are left with a reflective surface when you look up. The reflective quality of especially liquid paint on the ceiling helps to create the illusion of space. Add a mirror or mirrored effects to a wall and you’ve got the perfect way to open up a small room to make it look like it is a bigger room.
Interior Wall Windows
Consider the decorative effect of adding windows to interior walls. These opening in the walls inside the home aim the eyesight of visitors into the adjoining rooms to create a highly creative effect of spatial design. If you can afford to add a skylight into the roof in a room or two, these interior openings have quite the effect of opening up your space.
Draw attention to the space defined by an open ceiling that showcases beams or buttresses by stripping the loft area walls of décor. Plant your furniture-preferably furniture that is of a very vivid color like red or yellow-in the center of the room. This lack of adornment on the space occupied by your walls will draw attention overhead to the beams or buttresses or other architectural design of your open ceiling.
You can make quite a big decorative splash with your current interior design by adding multiple levels. Adding steps, step-ups to a high level and even partitioning off a dining section that requires take a step or two upward can do wonders for the fashion of your interior space. Prop up a wall with a column or two and you will have created quite an interior design effect from what was simply another boring layout without the levels.
Shop around on the internet and you will eventually find a place that sells platforms to be used inside home designs that feature a large, high-ceiling loft space. This room on stilts can be become a bedroom or a den or even a home office. Look for a loft platform with a circular staircase to make most efficient use of the limited floor space.
Stainless Steel Room Divider
Go tech-y by dividing a larger living space in half through the use of stainless steel panels. Make the panels convertible by installing them on rollers so that you can open up the space when you need it. If you prefer, the stainless steel panels can be installed without the ability to move them. Be creative by allowing some space between them so that the two sides of the room are not completely divided.
