It’s always been a preconceived notion that large, bold patterns tend to make a space look smaller, but what if that is not the case. Most homeowners are intimidated by this notion, and find their imaginations being absolutely reserved by it. However, we’re here today to tell you that using a bold pattern or design can actually enlarge your spaces. Let’s take a look at just how:
1. A stylish focal point
A large and bold design can become a stylish focal point in your living rooms. The Audrey Hepburn installation on the feature wall of this dining nook is an excellent example of this technique. Its bold, stylistic presence makes the space look larger than life and complements the overall ambiance of the home beautifully.
2. Sense of space
A large décor pattern or object – especially in an open space – can be helpful in determining your sense of space. Take the example of this circular false ceiling pattern – it may look large and overbearing in theory, but in actuality, it actually helps make sense of the space. It acts as the focal point that harmonizes the various objects within the space.
3. A trendy installation
Even when the bold design you’re using in your room has no functional presence, it can be a trendy installation that lends a visual appeal to your interior design. The tufted accent wall installed above the actual headboard of the bed in this image is a beautiful example of how you can use aesthetically similar designs to improve the overall space.
4. Bold colours
Did you know that bold colours have more visual weight then lighter ones? Well, they do and you can use this knowledge to enhance the aesthetics of your space. This living room interior design is a good example of executing this technique. The large sofa in strapping red helps enlarge its relatively smaller backdrop with its vivacious personality.
5. Lengthen-ing artwork
A bold pattern in your interior design can have any physical form. It can be furniture, or even a nicely clustered gallery wall. The compact formation of artwork and photographs in this living room interior design is a great example of how even a straight-laced pattern can contribute to enlarging the room.
