Tips and Tricks to Make Your Bedroom Feel Bigger

Choose the Same or Similar Colors

An easy visual trick that opens up a room is to match the drapes to the color of the walls and accent furniture. Try finding your window treatments first, and then have a paint color mixed to match. Lighter colors will create a more open feel. If you have small accent pieces, like chairs, frames, or wooden lamps, find a paint color that is a tone lighter, darker, or more metallic and paint them to match. For example, a rose gold spray painted accent chair would gently pop against warm caramel walls and window treatments.
