If your space feels small, it can quickly hurt the overall appeal of a room. Smaller spaces tend to feel more clutter, less comfortable, and sadly, unwelcoming. You cannot always change the blueprint of your space; however, there are several simple tricks that can help your space feel significantly larger without breaking ground or the budget. Incorporating these three simple tricks in your home is an easy way to enhance your space and make smaller areas appear more substantial. Let’s take a look!
Applying a light color palette to your room’s theme is a simple yet effective way to help make a small room appear bigger. Light can travel easier through the room, making the space feel brighter and more open. Using this paint trick on your walls and ceiling is the first step, but you can take it a step further by using light colors even on the ground and for your decor pieces. The brighter a room, the larger it will look. Finish off by adding bright lights in your room and consider if it is bright enough. If not, you may also want to apply more lighting in the room to create the perfect balance of brightness.
Another great tool to help your small space appear bigger is using mirrors. Rooms may seem smaller because of boundaries. Using mirrors can help visually eliminate those boundaries. Mirrors will create the illusion that the space continues while allowing light to reflect around the room, opening up the space.
If a room feels cluttered and small, consider replacing or removing furniture. Low-profile couches and beds will give the illusion that your ceiling height is higher than it actually is. Using glass end tables or coffee tables can allow you to see through the room easier and leave it feeling less obtrusive.
Open design furniture that is less bulky and more open can leave your atmosphere feeling airy. The more you add to the room, the smaller the space will appear. A minimalist approach to smaller areas is key to having your room looking larger.
The key to making your space feel bigger is allowing the space to feel open. Try incorporating these three tricks in your space and watch the wonders it can do on your home. For more great tips and tricks, visit us at From The Floors Up.
