Every homeowner, at one time or another, has felt that their space is too small, as if the walls were literally closing in on them. But the good thing with space, is that it is what you make of it! There are a lot of little insider tricks of the trade that can help a small room, feel larger. Below are our top three!
Favorite tip: move furniture a few inches away from the wall, it will give the illusion that there is more space between the wall and the furniture, therefore, creating more room!
Favorite tip: If you’re renovating your kitchen, make the countertops the length of the room. It gives the illusion that the room is longer AND you’ll be avoiding dead space.
Favorite tip: Curtains: Going without curtains can make a room look bigger, but may take away from privacy. BUT, you can still use your curtains to get rid of that “too small” feeling. By hanging them higher than the trim and installing longer curtain rods, you’ll give the illusion that the windows are bigger than they actually are. Plus, you’ll let in more light, and brighter rooms always feel bigger.
