Destin condominium owners are often faced with difficult decisions, like which Motley Crüe poster to hang in the entranceway (just joking J) – and how to best position our ironing board to optimize the feng shui of our living rooms. But in all seriousness, space is a valuable commodity that not all of us can afford, however, there are some simple ways to make sure the Destin condominium you’ve got appear larger.
For starters, be conservative when choosing how much to decorate your walls. Cluttered wall space can make a room feel small and almost as if the walls are closing in. However, when choosing wall décor, consider mirrors. Not too many, but one or two strategically placed throughout your condominium can add depth to a room. Try to place them across from open windows where they can get lots of natural light to brighten things up. And don’t forget to consider your paint choices when decorating small spaces. Light colors are better for making rooms appear larger.
Moving to the floors, a striped rug patterns or wide floor boards are said to add length to rooms, much like vertical stripes can add the illusion of length in clothing. Also, try to choose furniture with legs to leave open space around your floors. For example, a couch or bookshelf with legs that don’t block all the space to the floor, while not necessarily usable space, still makes an area appear more open.
If you’re currently looking for a Destin condominium and space is an issue for you, consider getting more out of your sleeping areas by finding rooms with Murphy beds that fold out of a closets, or even consider buying a sleeper-sofa that can fold back up to allow other uses for a room. Either solution when stored will make your overall space feel larger. If you’d like to learn more about condos in the Destin, FL area, contact us today!
