Tips in Making Smaller Spaces Look Bigger

Posted by Greg Birch / Comments are off for this post.

If you are building a house in a small lot, space within your home could be a bit of a problem. Unfortunately, your limited lot area isn’t something that home builders could fix.

 

The good thing is, a lot of home builders work together with architects as well as interior designers who could help your building to appear bigger than it actually is through maximizing the space you have.

 

However, although home builders can recommend professionals to help you with home designs, styles, and issues with small spaces, it’s not mandatory that you get in touch with professional interior designers and architects right away to help you out. There are countless ways you can make small spaces in your home look bigger – without having to spend cash on hiring experts.

 

With a little mixing and matching, trying new home accessories, and redecorating on your own, you can make any area appear more spacious.

 

If you have limited space in your home, try to use lighter tones to make various rooms seem larger. Curtains, sheets, pillowcases, carpets, area rugs, and other home items with lighter shades are great choices. Repainting your walls with lighter colors will work too.

 

Putting mirrors on your walls is an effective technique to create an illusion of additional space.

 

Using large wall decorations will make any area look roomier as well.

 

As space is a major factor when you have tight room to move in, it is paramount that you keep your things organized. Keep your home neat to show all the available space in your home.

 

Instead of constructing a wall to turn one big room into two separate rooms, you could put a divider. And, you could opt for multi-functional dividers such as shelves or closets. Not only would shelves and closets serve as a divider, but it will also help you organize your things more effectively.

 

Last, but certainly not the least, keep the rooms well-lighted. Dim lighting would just highlight the room’s small size. If you are using drapes, use light colored ones or you can keep the drapes open instead to let the light in.
