Ways to Make Your Home Appear Larger
Small spaces can start to get cluttered and if not handled properly can become crowded. But did you know that just by adding and changing a couple details here and there you can turn your small home into a larger one. Although, you can’t actually literally make the space larger you can trick the eye into perceiving more space.
Here are a few tips to help your home appear larger than it is:
Mirrors can magically open up any small room by reflecting light and creating the illusion of more space. Place a mirror in a dim hallway or room to bounce back artificial light and brighten the area.
USE LIGHT COLORS
The colors you choose to paint your walls can either make your room look smaller or bigger. Avoid dark color schemes since they absorb the light and make your home appear smaller Instead go for light colors, which reflect the light making the room look more spacious.
INCREASE AMOUNT OF LIGHT IN THE HOME
A brighter room opens up the interior and makes it look larger. Windows not only allow natural light to be brought into the room but also create a connection with the outdoors giving the room a fresh and airy atmosphere.
STOP THE CLUTTERING
Avoid clutter as it can take a lot of space in your apartment and make it feel cramped. Less is more when it comes to decorating your apartment. Try not to go overboard with the picture frames and plants. Maintaining your house and keeping it organized and clean is key to having your home look spacious.
FURNITURE IS THE MAIN FOCUS OF A ROOM
Every room in your home should have a piece of furniture that defines that specific area. For example, the Bed in a bedroom, the Sofa in a living room and the kitchen table in a kitchen. So make those be the center of attention when walking into those rooms. Buy a large bed and place it in the center and keep the rest of the furniture at a minimum.
Remember less is more!
