Living in a home that doesn’t offer large, open rooms? Don’t discount it! Small spaces provide the same opportunity for thoughtful design and tranquil aesthetic as their larger counterparts, as long as you know what you’re doing. If you’re searching for creative ways to make small spaces seem bigger, try one of our tricks below. You may be surprised how one small tweak can change how you feel about an entire space.
1. Find the Perfect Fit
Choosing the right furniture is crucial to the aesthetic of any room, big or small. Always take care to select pieces that complement the size of the space. Smaller furniture, naturally, will save you space and larger pieces will fill out wide, open rooms.
2. Make Room
You may have developed a habit of moving furniture against the wall to create the feeling of more space, but this could actually be working against you. Instead, try arranging your furniture so that there is breathing room around every piece. Giving your furniture some air can help to create the illusion of a larger room.
3. Lay Low
Low-slung pieces can solve your space problems. Close to the ground mid-century furniture coupled with low-hung décor, like mirrors and art, placed far from the ceiling is the way to go.
4. Mirror Image
You’ve probably seen this tip executed in person once or twice before. Mirrors are a great way to create a sense of openness. They reflect light, as well as the view – tricking your brain into thinking there is more room than reality.
5. Paint It White
Actually any light hue will do! Dark colors can be vampy and alluring, but they don’t do you any favors in creating the appearance of space. Opt for subtle tones like cream, white, and pale grays and blues that will keep the space airy and open.
