Do you wish the rooms in your home were bigger? Worry not, there are a few tips and tricks to make any small room appear larger than it actually is. Follow these tips below to achieve a more airy, spacious atmosphere that you can apply to any room of your house.
Work with Light Paints and Colors
Light colored paint, furniture and accessories create an open, airy feel. This can easily make any small room appear bigger.
Draw The Eye Upward
Placing your curtains higher and wider than your actual window can visually make a room appear larger, as well as bring in more light.
Reduce Clutter and Space Out Furniture
Stay away from lining furniture against walls. Try spacing your pieces out and giving them some breathing room. This will lead to a more spacious feel. Minimize clutter with storage options such as baskets, ottomans and shelves/book shelves. Keep items on coffee tables to a minimum.
Be Mindful of Furniture Size
Make sure the scale of your furniture fits the room size. Putting over sized furniture in a small space will make it feel even smaller. On the other hand, putting small furniture in a large space will make it feel empty and uninviting.
Placing a large mirror in a spot where it will reflect the most light, will enhance the size of the room. Include a glass coffee table, which takes up very little visual space, to complete your look.
