PWF DESIGN TRENDS - 2021

We’ve all seen a room that looks so small and cramped, it triggered claustrophobia.

Ok maybe not that bad, but did you start wondering how to flip that room to make it look more spacious? A lighter colour here, a smaller chair there maybe. Utilizing the area is a priority when designing smaller spaces, on top of having everything need for your lifestyle.

1. Paint walls light & contrast

A long curtain that hangs all the way down to your floors instantly makes your ceiling look higher. You can opt for sheer curtains to maximize the natural light coming in, or go for a blackout curtain for privacy and for when the sun is too bright.

2. Use ceiling-to-floor curtains

A long curtain that hangs all the way down to your floors instantly makes your ceiling look higher. You can opt for sheer curtains to maximize the natural light coming in, or go for a blackout curtain for privacy and for when the sun is too bright.

3. Go for sofas with raised legs

Having sofas and armchairs raised on legs provide the view of extra space underneath. The sight of extra space means a more sense of openness and movement. It will also come in handy when cleaning for easier vacuum access. You’ll need to keep your room clean. Less clutter means a bigger space.

4. Use mirrors

What more to reflect the illusion of a bigger area than mirrors! We honestly love giant mirrors. The aesthetic and Instagram-worthy photos it can be used for gives us life. It gives the illusion of depth and placing it near a window reflects the view outside is most effective.

5. Accentuate the vertical or horizontal

If your space has a high ceiling, we recommend emphasizing the vertical aspects of your furniture and design. You can do this with long pendant lights, tall bookshelf or artworks showcasing vertical designs. As well, horizontal lines widen the room. It can be achieved by using horizontal strips and paneling.

6. Go for bigger furniture (then arrange nicely)

Using a few large pieces of furniture is more preferable than plenty of small ones. It would look like clutter. Arrange them in a way that would create more space in your room. Push sofas all the way to the wall and create a space in the middle of the room to make it feel more open and airy.

7. Keep the shelf spacious

Filling up a shelf can make the room cluttered and disorganized. Instead, just choose a few items to display.

8. Keep it minimal

It can be very easy to go overboard and add too many decorations, but you have to have self-discipline! Keeping it nice and simple is the best way to not overcrowd the room. The colour, pieces and little items you choose will work together and complement each other.
