    Hi I just installed wordpress theme and I'm using a copy of the twenty eleven theme but they both look so narrow, not like the demo of the theme I also tried to change the width from 1000 to 1100 in the style.css file but I notice absolutely no change, can anyone please help me ?

    I'm extremely new to wordpress, and I need to make the content area wider

    Thank you for any help or direction

    before you continue with customisations, create a child theme if you haven't done already; http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    you seem to be using the one-column option;

    in style.css of the child theme, add this with a new width value:

    /* One column */
    .one-column #page {
    	max-width: 690px;

    also, because Twenty Eleven is the default theme and widely used and modified, there is a good chance that somebody already asked the same question:
    always try to use the forum search and add 'twenty eleven' to the search terms.

    the best might be if you post a link to your site to illustrate what you have so far and what you are trying to achieve.

    there is some information about all those things in the forum, it might just be a bit difficult to find with the forum search.
