How To Make More Out Of A Small Space

Designing small rooms can be a difficult task but that doesn’t mean you have to always feel cramped. Here are some amazing ideas to make a small room look bigger and unique.

Big but Less Furniture

A lot of small furniture into small rooms can look cramped. If you wish to make your small room look bigger, the best idea is to use larger pieces of furniture, but fewer of them. For instance, instead of filling your living room with a sofa, ottoman, chair, coffee table, side table, etc. use a regular-sized sofa, ottoman that can double as a coffee table, and just one chair. Get rid of excess small pieces and include only what is important and you need.

Remove Clutter

Clutter is a big no-no in any room, and that’s the key rule in small rooms. Keep everything in its place. It is recommended to keep small items like remote controls in storage drawers or boxes and avoid the display of excessive accessories. Keep tables clear and don’t let newspapers and books lying around on tables. Clutter in small quantities will affect the overall look of the room.

Maximize Natural Light

Natural lighting is important and one of the best elements in any room. Let natural light in and hang curtains outside the window frame so that when the curtains are open none of the windows is covered. If possible hang a mirror on the wall opposite the window. This will reflect the sunlight making the room feel bigger and brighter.

Use Mirrors Strategically

Mirrors are great to properly reflect light and creating the illusion of more space. Hang a large wall mirror near or across from a window that can effectively reflect natural light. It will also become an amazing focal point in your room while creating an illusion of depth. It’s always better to use large mirrors when trying to make a small room look bigger.

Use Light Fabrics and Colors

Colors always look beautiful, but if you desire to make a small room look bigger, use only natural colors. Pastels, light neutrals, and shades of white and creams are the best to give airy feels. Avoid the use of heavy fabrics like velvets and wools and use cotton and linen that are lightweight.
