Realtor OKC Tips On Making Small Rooms Look Bigger

Realtor OKC: Helping You Love Your Space

Living in a smaller home does have advantages such as lower energy costs and less space to fill up, but just because you’ve decided to live in a smaller home doesn’t mean that it has to feel small. In fact, there are plenty of ways to make cozy rooms look bigger! Today, our realtor OKC team is here to share a few tips with you so that you can enhance any small room.

Our realtor OKC gathered up these 5 clever tricks to share with you:

  • Choose light paint colors for the walls. If you’re feeling like white isn’t your thing you can go bold and still make it rooms seem larger by matching the paint color to the flooring, moldings, drapes, or cabinets. This helps draw the eye towards the blended colors rather the size of the room.
  • Go for multi-functional furniture pieces such as ottomans with lids which can be put together for a coffee table, seating for guests, and can be used as storage space.
  • Adding mirrors is an old trick, but still a good one. The best place to put a mirror is across from a window to reflect light and make the room feel larger. Another good placement would be behind an end table or a chest to make it look like another space is behind it.
  • Keep decorating to a minimum for a more airy look. For example, don’t fill bookshelves all the way and if you have knickknacks consider color coordinating them (blue colors on one shelf, red on another, etc.). If you like area rugs go for small prints or plain colors to visually expand the space. If you like artwork, experts say that adding in one dramatic piece of artwork will add flare and trick the eye into thinking the space is bigger.
  • Choose to place several lights around the room to draw the eye to many spots rather than just one. Also, make sure the lighting is bright!

Our OKC realtor team hopes that these simple design tricks will help you make your small spaces feel a lot larger.

Mahogany wood- Realtor OKC

Realtor OKC Tips For Complementary Paint Colors With Mahogany Wood

Realtor OKC Team Talks Of Aesthetically Pleasing Wall Colors

So you have the house and you want to decorate, but you don’t have a clue where to begin? Being a homeowner can be so rewarding, yet it takes a lot of decision making to make your home feel like your home. Today, our realtor OKC team is specifically providing tips directed towards those of you who have homes with mahogany wood trim and finishes throughout.

Mahogany is a beautiful color, but can often leave you wondering how to best complement this lovely wood. Since the natural color of mahogany changes with age from pinkish to more of a copper or reddish-brown it may be difficult to decide which wall color to choose. Our realtor OKC team set out to research what real designers had to say about matching or contrasting this type of wood. In most cases, experts say that mahogany is best matched with other accents around the room such as a color in a tile backsplash in the kitchen, the room’s crown molding, or interior doors.

So which wall colors are actually best? Our realtor OKC team learned that the answer isn’t all that straight forward. The truth is that the “right color” can actually be different based on personal preference and what kind of look you are trying to achieve. Here are some tips on how to choose paint colors for various decorative styles:

  • If You Want To Highlight The Wood: To draw the eye to the wood, choose a wall color that is contrasting such as light, creamy beige.
  • If You Want Maximum Contrast: For more contrast from the mahogany wood finishes, choose wall colors that are earthy such as a light green.
  • If You Want Relatable Colors: For a very adaptable color with varying shades from cool to warm, Gray is a great choice.

No matter what your end goal is, whether you want to provide a bold statement or a subtle one, with the right color choice the end result is bound to be stunning and your home will feel personalized for your family.
