Small space ideas for your spa
a small space, every inch counts. By applying a few clever tricks,
you can utilize certain design concepts that fool the eye and make
interiors seem much more spacious. Maximize your minimal space with
Dark colors absorb light,
making a room look and feel smaller, but light-colored walls are
reflective and make a space feel open and airy. Be sure to use a
color scheme that’s light rather than bright, such as pastels,
neutrals and whites.
Follow an overall
monochromatic color scheme when buying furniture, rugs and wall
paint. Select different shades and textures of your single color, as
even the bigger items will begin to blend into the room and widen out
the space. Use materials that are see-through for an open airy space
like a glass table or acrylic shelving.
A cluttered room equals a
smaller room. Restrict the amount of furniture to necessary pieces,
and limit accessories. Keep rooms tidy and organized. With things
neatly arranged or out of sight, the remaining space will feel
orderly and open.
Avoid covering your walls
with pictures. One large painting or mural works better than a group
of small paintings. If there’s too much going on, it can make the
room feel busy and crowded.
Mirrors can make your room
look larger and brighter, as they reflect both natural and artificial
light to make a room seem brighter, both during the day and at night.
Invest in multi-function
furniture. For instance, a manicurist stool with built-in storage
lets you tuck away supplies and products, while a massage table with
cabinets underneath is a great place to hide sheets, towels and even
a hot-towel cabby.
Make your ceiling pop! A
clean, white ceiling will open up a space, but giving your ceiling
texture with bright colors and fun fixtures really draws your eye
upward, creating the illusion of height.
Lighting is a key element
in opening up a space. Recessed
spot lighting is perfect for a
small space. Try a torchiere light, which is great for bouncing light
off of the ceiling and back down onto the room.
