How to make small spaces look bigger

You can make your small spaces in your room to look bigger. Small rooms don’t mean it has to feel that way too. Try these simple tricks to make your room seem spacious and bigger.

Mirror mirror on the wall

Adding a large mirror is one of the simplest ways to make a small room look bigger. Mirrors can make a room look twice its size if you put it in the right place. Consider the light, color, and images when you want to install the mirror. Put it in an area with the brightest light so it can reflect the view of the room or the nature outside scenery from the window.

Buy what it fits not what you need

Keep this in mind that you don’t need a very big sofa in your small living room. It’s just a waste of money because I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t fit the room and make it look very cramped. Instead of buying a large sofa, buy a loveseat or smaller chairs.

Now we move on to the dining room. You can make a small dining room looks instantly bigger if you choose the right dining table. Go with the small dining table and clear up your wall from any accessories. Choose one large painting to make it visually bigger. The small dining table and one large painting go very well to make a strong focal point. You can add rugs and remove any plants too for stronger effect.

Lighting is important

By choosing the right light color can create a strong illusion of a bigger room. Go with the light color such as neutrals, pastels, white or bright color because it reflects more light than a darker color. It makes your mind feel the room is roomier. In addition, a sheer window allows more light to come. Avoid bold or strong color for you wallpaper or carpet because it’s not going well with small spaces.

Matching the color of your furniture is another big help. Keep all the color on the same line to produce a strong feeling of openness and roomier. Don’t try to improvise by using a contrast and strong color because it will break the line. Decorate your room in the same shades to make it feel more seamless.

Tidying up

I know that you want to show off your entire knickknack collection to your visitor. But trust me they will just feel cramped and inconvenience once they enter the room. Just go with just three pieces at a time for decoration.

Organize your stuff and things and store it neatly in one place. Avoid placing too much stuff on the floor and wall as much as you can. It will create more spaces for your visitors. Place furniture based on the comfort and convenience so that you can maximize the feeling of openness. By this way, you can make your visitors feels in the bigger room than they actually are
