Making your small space look bigger

1. Clear the clutter

One of the quickest and easiest ways to make your home feel bigger is to declutter. Go through your belongings and get rid of anything you don’t need or use. Is there anything that you don’t really use, or even need? Or in the words of Marie Kondo, “Does it spark joy?”

If not, just throw it out, or even better, if it is still usable, donate it to a thrift store or recycle it. This will free up space and make your home feel larger.

2. Put up a wall mirror

Another great way to make your home feel bigger is to add mirrors. Mirrors will reflect light all around the room and also make it appear larger than it is. Full length mirrors are an inexpensive way to create the illusion of more space.

3. Use neutral colours

Aim to incorporate more neutral tone coloured furniture in your room. It’ll create more visual breathing room as opposed to busy patterns. And if you’re looking to take on a fun home improvement project, why not try painting your existing furniture neutral tones?

4. Let in more light

Drawing up any thick curtains and opening the windows to let in some natural light can do a world of difference for any room. This works because when more of the floor is visible, it will instantly seem bigger. If there are any tall pieces of furniture in front of your window that are obstructing the path of light, you should move them away.

5. Go for multi-purpose furniture

Choose furniture that can serve more than one purpose so you can cut down on bulky fixtures in your room. Ottomans with storage, coffee tables with drawers, and beds with built-in storage are some great examples of multi-purpose furniture. This can help you declutter your home while also making the most of your small space.

6. Opt for taller fixtures

Tall furniture pieces are another clever way to create the illusion of a room with high ceilings. Tall bookcases, full-length curtains and tall wardrobes, for example, will give you extra storage while making the room appear larger.
