6 ways to make small interiors seem grandiose
Making small interiors seem larger than life in the best sort of ways is an ongoing challenge that is being tackled in unique ways by many designers all over the world. Some go for robotic walls, other go for vertical fashion-ability and many others go for minimalism. There is no hard and fast rule that defines that is right and what might be wrong with the practice that determines this sort of interior interventions. The market is chock full of manufactured ideas that promise to make the dimensions of your space more cognizant of all your big ideas – think; compact furniture, reflective surfaces and small features. Below, we’ll be looking at a summary of some of these ideas that may make your small interiors seem relatively grandiose.
- Compact and one step higher
If you strip your interior of all the frou-frou accoutrements that make up the bulk of its aesthetic, you will end up with something very simple yet very impactful. The design in the image below shows that if you take your space just one simple level higher and strip off some major design interventions – bed pedestal, wardrobe, large-scale media walls and more – then you can get an adequately grandiose aesthetic in a majorly awesome way.
- A shade of gold
The image below shows an interior that has been dressed in a rich, black contemporary outset and you might be wondering – how does it still manage to look so grandiose? Well the space might be small, and the color scheme might be rich but the lighting goes a long way in taking it all off-kilter in the best of ways. In this case, the gold of the lighting adds to the bold, beautiful charm of the interior which makes the space larger than life.
- Work with tallness
One of the more conventional ways of tackling the problem of small style interior designing is by imbuing tallness. The image below shows an interior that has used a zany design and a quirky color scheme to imbue individuality and low-key grandiose vibe within the interior in the best possible way; through tallness.
- Play with textures
The right combination of colors, textures, materials and lighting can go a long way in making even the smallest of spaces seem grand and inviting. The image below showcases an interior that uses a gold on gold scheme to celebrate its glamor and opulence within the smallness of the space.
Sometimes, all you need is a little bit of creatively induced minimalism in order to make the most of a small space. the interior in the image below utilizes its open floor plan and uses simple but sporadically placed furniture objects in order to imbue a grand vibe within this aesthetic.
