01 January 1970

When considering home renovations, you may dislike small spaces. But there are various reasons why small is better: it is easier to clean, easier to decorate, and easier to organize. But still, if you feel that you need to make your home look bigger, there are several ways in which you can actually do this. And guess what? All these ways that we are soon going to talk about would not demand any kind of structural change. You can make your home look bigger by just following these crazy and easy tips. 

So, to help you with this journey of making your small home look bigger, we have curated a list of easy tips and tricks that you should definitely try.

Clear out the cutter

The very first thing that you should do is to clear the cutter. This is due to the fact that having too much stuff in our home will eventually make it appear smaller. You'll need to figure out how to hide your collection behind doors, table skirts, or on shelves. When things are neatly arranged and out of sight, the space that you can see is definitely going to look orderly and open.

Open the way

There are times when furniture and accessories block the view into a room; it will look cramped. As a result, you must remove furniture from walkways. This is going to open up the space and make it look larger. And you should consider picking short pieces of furniture like an ottoman, an armless open chair, or a low table. You should also place tall pieces along a wall rather than out in the open space. The trick is that if you can see the floor, the room will look larger.

Utilise glass and lucite

If you use materials that help you see through them, everything beyond them will appear farther away. For example, if you have a tiny bathroom, you need to get rid of that opaque glass shower enclosure and instead replace it with a clear frameless one. This will definitely help you by making your room bigger as you can see all the way to the wall at the back of the shower—it may be only three extra feet, but the difference it makes is dramatic. You can even consider using glass or lucite for tabletops. With a sturdy base of wood, stone, or metal, the space around the table will open up the view beyond. 

Add reflective surfaces

Using a large framed mirror on the wall or installing an oversized framed mirror against the wall will help you make your space look bigger. This is because using mirrors will help you create an enlarging effect with more style. Mirrors will help to reflect space and light, creating a more open feeling.You can top a coffee table or side table with pieces of bevelled latex mirror, or you can even get a mirrored chest of drawers for a similar effect.
