The vast majority of folks who live in small homes have wished for a bigger space at some point. What many don't realize is that it can be pretty tricky to decorate a large space. Larger environments often appear cold and disconnected. Not to mention it is quite common for generous-sized rooms to be a bit flat. If you have a large home, and you are nodding your head right now in agreement, then you will find this list of tips for creating depth to be very helpful.

  1. Paint - There are a lot of tricks you can do with paint to create depth. Obviously, painting an accent wall is an easy idea, but it is not your only option. If you have light carpet, paint the ceiling a lighter shade than the walls. This will give the illusion that the floor and ceiling are pushing away from one another. You can paint the trim around your windows and doors an accent color, or try painting a wall with a mixture of shades that complement each other.

  1. Marble Wall Water Fountains - One of the most important elements of a large room is a focal point. Since there is so much space for the eyes to scan, décor that would make a statement in a room of average size simply gets lost in a large one. Marble wall water fountains are ideal because not only do they naturally attract attention and become a focal point; the pattern in the marble creates depth. Do make sure you are considering scale while shopping. A large room will demand that you shop for large marble wall water fountains.

  1. Layer Rugs - If you are going to layer rugs then you have to be prepared to spend the money for large ones. Layering a couple small area rugs in a big space will look out of place. You can layer solids, but the effect looks best when you layer a patterned one on top of a solid one. Obviously, the one on top will be a bit smaller than the bottom one.

  1. Textiles - Choose a variety of textiles when you shop for furniture, pillows, and curtains. If you have 10 pillows tossed on your sectional they shouldn't be all the same fabric. Incorporate a few patterns, as well.

  1. Plants - There is no other art as three-dimensional as plants, because plants move, grow, and change. Add a few ferns or other varieties that have a whimsical look.
