Whether you're thinking of updating your home or getting it ready to sell, here are five ways to make any room in your house feel more spacious:
- Use Light Well: Adding light is an easy way to make a room feel bigger. If the room has windows, open the blinds and curtains to let in more natural light. You can also brighten up the space with lamps or hanging lights if there are no windows.
- Install Skylights or Sun Tunnels: If it's feasible to install Skylights or Sun Tunnels in your home, I would strongly suggest opting for that approach over simply hanging a mirrored wall. Mirrored tiles can come across as outdated and, for those who are superstitious, they might even be associated with negative energy. On the other hand, Skylights and Sun Tunnels are consistently valuable additions as they allow the entry of natural light from outdoors.
- Smart Storage: Too much furniture can make a room seem smaller and crowded. To avoid this, try shelves built into the walls, use vertical space, and pick furniture that can store things out of sight.
- Choose Light Window Treatments: Heavy and dark window treatments can make a space feel tight. Instead, go for light-colored, sheer window coverings that can let more light in.
- Light Color Floorings: Dark colors make a room look smaller. To make a room feel larger, go for light colors like whites, pastels, and light yellows.
