Aaaah… If your tiny bathroom is giving you more of an AAAARGH! feeling, this post is definitely for you. (For those of you who have the perfect bathroom, but are hurting for space in other rooms of the house, you can skip this post and go read 9 Ways to Make a Small Room Look Bigger.)

I’ve listed 22 ways to make your small bathroom look better below. Of course, everyone’s bathroom (and tastes) are different. That’s why I suggest you pick 2 suggestions from each category (Floor, Walls, Ceiling, Details). [...]

10 Ways to Make Your Kitchen Feel Bigger

10 Ways to Make Your Kitchen Feel Bigger | Interior Design | Scoop.it
For many, a huge kitchen is the stuff daydreams are made of. If only I had an 8-foot kitchen island with a second sink, you sigh dreamily. Food would definitely taste better if you made it in a spacious kitchen with a 10-foot ceiling and sun streaming in enormous windows, right? But physically increasing your kitchen’s square footage isn’t always an option. Thankfully, as a kitchen and bath designer, I have learned a few tricks along the way to enlarge the look and feel of your kitchen without knocking out any walls. I can’t guarantee you won’t bump elbows with your significant other anymore, but keep reading and I’ll see what I can do to give you a little more breathing room. 1. Lighten up. As I wrote back in January in “9 Ways to Make a Small Room Look Bigger,” dark colors almost always make rooms feel smaller.

Your Guide to an Interior Painting Color Palette

Your Guide to an Interior Painting Color Palette | Interior Design | Scoop.it
Color is one of the most effective tools to establish the mood of a room. Before you even take in furniture, flooring, or decor, color sends a signal the brain. That’s why some 1,500 jails and hospitals painted detention rooms bubblegum pink in the 1980s: the color would calm people down and even lull them to sleep. “Several experiments have shown that different colors affect blood pressure, pulse and respiration rates as well as brain activity and biorhythms,” wrote The New York Times.
