Stuck with a small room that feels as though it’s closing in on you? Instead of feeling like a prisoner, take action by following some of these easy tips to make your room look bigger.
Manage Your Storage
A big room is all about creating even airflow. If you have too many things on the ground, the lack of floor space will make the room seem small; if things are stacked too high (hung on racks at the same height) this will also make the room feel small.
The trick is to store your items at different levels. This may mean creating shelves higher up or stacking items on top of each other in a few pretty boxes to reveal more of your floor.
Go White Or Go Light
Painting the walls of your room a light, bright color will instantly make the walls feel further apart. You’ll have the illusion of more open space and the brightness will also assist in creating more space.
Invest in Good Lighting
Adding quality lighting to your room will help to make it seem less dark and dingy and more bright and open. The more of your room you can see, the bigger it looks.
Hang a Mirror
Hanging a mirror opposite where natural light flows in will instantly mean that the light reflects back into your room and will ultimately make your room feel brighter and bigger.
