7 Ways to Make a Small Space Appear Bigger
Calculate How to Space Furniture
A common misconception is putting furniture and household items against the walls to make the floor space look larger. Instead, try putting your furniture at an angle in different parts of the room, creating a better looking empty space with breathing room around the furniture, you’ll be amazed at how this gives the illusion of a bigger room.
Buy and Use Multifunctional Furniture
If you’re looking to minimise the number of items in a space to make it look like you have more room, then try to purchase furniture that is multifunctional. An example would be a coffee table that has internal storage capacity, letting you hide your books, DVDs and other items that would otherwise clutter the already small space you have
Perhaps try Larger Furniture
On first glance, it may appear illogical to get big furniture to put into a small space, but it may be that multiple pieces of small furniture in a small place makes the room look more cramped. Try one larger piece of furniture like a chair that will be the focal point of the room whilst keeping the remaining space orderly.
Sometimes it is difficult to engineer more space into an area that has plenty of items and furniture that need to remain in the room. You can easily give your room a personality makeover by providing structure with colour. The reorganised room will look great whilst providing an illusion of a bigger space.
On the other hand, you could paint and collect furniture in different shades of one colour. Instead of going for vibrant coordination, stick to greys, whites and beiges to give a room an expansive illusion.
One of the most efficient ways to make your room look bigger is by using a mirror. You can either go the method of having a couple wall-to-wall, or having one that is full-length and creates a focal statement piece allowing the rest of the room to look bigger.
Keep Your Windows Uncovered
When getting into the enjoyment of interior design it is easy to feel the need to cover your windows with blinds or curtains that make the room look a certain colour or feel the certain way. If you’re looking for the space to look larger then try to leave the windows completely uncovered without the blinds or curtains. Allowing for natural light at all hours of the day will be sure to make the room look bigger. If you’re concerned for privacy reasons, then a light white blind might be enough to keep the room looking spacious whilst keeping away people who are nosey.
