For example, in the spacious living betterarrange the furniture is not the walls, and the functional groups uniformly throughout the floor to the space was decorated in harmony, and not reminiscent of a dance class. Little cozy room demands the least attention and involves the use of a compact elegant furniture in the form of only the most necessary and the most functional items.

And yet, today we will focus on the peculiaritiesYour narrow rooms, spacious, small or with average dimensions of the area. For all of them there are special techniques, which are listed below in this article are designed to help with the design of the narrow space.

How to equip the interior of a narrow room

two main problems arise in the arrangement of narrow rooms, which have to be fulfilled:

The first is to try tovisually expand the space, narrow and elongate in plan. The second requires careful and thoughtful attitude to planning, namely, to the arrangement of the main large pieces of furniture.

Step 1: Brightening narrow room

In the case where the narrow room decoratedwrong in her a feeling of tightness and stiffness, you may even feel physically. In order not to make common errors, primarily, determine the colors of the major surfaces.

So, it is better to give up too dark andsaturated colors, which are used instead of light colors is preferred. For example, if the narrow room is quite high, it is possible to easily apply a dark floor, the ceiling some "lower" due to the suspension or tension structures. The longitudinal walls is better to issue in light shade with a cold midtone (pastel lilac, silver, pale blue, mint, white), as well as a cool range will expand cramped space visually. To end walls (short), on the contrary, you can apply a warmer shade - it visually shorten the room and bring it to a square shape.



Step 2: Use the cross members

To the space between the longitudinalwalls seem wider effective to apply such a technique as the use of horizontal members between them. These elements can be cross beams in the ceiling design, floor boards, horizontal stripes in the pattern of the carpet or diagonal laying parquet boards.

Also, in the wall or decorating the transverse (short) walls need to use horizontal motifs: stripes, pattern, zigzag pattern or wave, and so on.

Objects forming a narrow room environment and should be selected carefully.

Chairs, sofas and beds should be conciseforms, wardrobes, chests of drawers and shelves should be set shallow, and if they are provided folding doors, better if the facade is smooth, without relief and decor.

It should be noted that the use of largemirrors in the interior of the narrow bedrooms - this is quite a controversial issue because of the emergence of feelings of anxiety, especially at night. So, to recommend to the mirror design, we will, nevertheless, for living rooms, dining rooms, hallways and corridors, where the reflecting surface is not only expand the narrow space, but will make a share of solemnity.



Step 5: Use the light evenly

A well-lit room creates youintuitive sense of well-being, comfort and peace. But it is quite the opposite feelings arise when you are in a narrow space with one or two dim lamps. Light is a key factor in creating beautiful, functional, and, in general, a successful interior, therefore, still in the design stage or room layout, it is necessary to consider the existence and location of multiple light sources, the basic and additional.

The narrow room is the main source of two (ceiling) light may spotlight system, and additional table lamps, wall lamps and floor lamps.



Step 6: Apply the visual illusion

We came to the decorative design of the complexa narrow space, which, nevertheless, has a clear impact on the visual perception of positive living space. It is an application of optical illusions, namely, paintings, murals, photographs illustrating the three-dimensional images of objects, modern themed still life, art installations, landscapes with a strong prospect, and other subjects, creating a non-existent, the amount of pseudo narrow room.

Looking at the picture of the room space,landscape, receding to the horizon, or a portrait, executed in the technique of a stressed realism, creating the effect of presence in the picture, and the surface of the walls gets the depth and texture.
