Making a Small Room Look and Feel Bigger

If you live in an apartment with small rooms, or if you live in an older house (in which rooms were generally a lot smaller than in newer built homes) then you might be able to use some of these space-enhancing tips to create the feel of spaciousness in you space!

A big problem in small spaces is a lack of storage. Fortunately, there are lots of solutions for your storing needs. An increasingly popular option is under-the-bed sliding drawers and shelves. This can be a great place to keep your extra clothes, bedding or, in a child’s room – toys.

Illusion can be a huge help. Get yourself a good-sized mirror and place it on the wall, opposite a window if possible, this will increase the light, and the feeling of openness in the room.

Instead of a nightstand, install a wall mounted shelf beside your bed. It will open up the floor space, which naturally will give you more room. Wall mounted shelves are a great space-saving solution for any room, and are available in a ton of different styles and price ranges, so you’ll easily find something for your home.

When it comes to choosing a color palette for your walls, use warm, subtle, neutral colors when painting a small room, and always paint ceilings white. This will create the illusion of a higher ceiling, which does a great deal in making your space feel, and look, a lot bigger.
