3 Interior Design Tips to Make Your Beach Condo Feel Spacious, Gulf Shores, Alabama

There's a lot to be said for condo living, but even the best units may have limited space, which makes interior design a challenge. However, with a little experience and carefully chosen condo furniture, you can use decorating to create the illusion of a bigger space. Whether you're moving into a new condo or just redecorating, Beachside Furniture & Interiors in Gulf Shores, AL, has the products and guidance you need to make your space beautiful and functional.

3 Interior Design Tips To Create A Spacious Condo

Install Darker Flooring

Some people try to brighten a room by lightening its floors, only to wind up with a low-contrast effect that lacks warmth. Instead, use dark, rich hardwood floors or carpets to make your walls seem brighter, which in turn will make the room feel larger.

Use Clear Furniture

Gulf-Shores-AL-interior-designTransparent furniture, such as an acrylic chair or glass-topped table, maintains sight lines throughout the room, making smaller spaces feel roomier. Entertainment units or curio cabinets with glass shelves also can help you achieve this interior design effect by making these large pieces of furniture seem light and airy.

Leave Space Around Furniture

Your furniture arrangement is almost as important as the pieces you buy. Putting everything against a wall sometimes can emphasize how little space is left. Instead, angle a piece in a corner or put the sofa in the middle of the room. The feeling of space around each piece of furniture will translate to a more open feel.
