Getting a small area around the home or the whole house to look larger is possible by following some simple steps.

  1. Repaint the ceiling or use a background to give the space a taller appearance
    It doesn’t matter whether it is your living room, or your bedroom, repainting the ceiling or using wallpaper can make a room look bigger. The secret is that a brightly colored ceiling will allow you to raise your brows upwards which make the space appear big and spacious. Use light color paint on the walls
    When the walls in a room are painted with dark colors, it makes the room look a bit cozier due to they absorb light. Whereas when the walls are painted with bright colours, it helps to make a room more spacious since light readily gets reflected around the room.
  2. Ensure furniture’s aren’t placed closed to the wall
    Creating space between the wall and furniture creates the illusion of a large room; making the room look more open unlike when you place them close to the wall which makes the area look cramped.
  3. Use light colors on the ground too
    Just like in the case of a brightly painted wall, a brightly colored flooring also gives a space a spacious outlook. You may decide on a floor remodeling if you are up for it or simply just get a brightly colored rug or carpeting. Place shelves near the ceiling to get people to look up.
    You can make a small space look bigger by putting structures in place to draw the eye towards the ceiling. And one effective way you can attain this would be to hang a shelf near the ceiling. It may be a book shelf or one with an array of decorations which are pleasing to the eyes. Make use of large decorative accents
    Accenting a room with large decorations like tall vases or handmade items can get it to appear large. This is because few big decorations in a room give it a detailed outlook unlike when you cramp it up with smaller decorations scattered here and there.
  4. Go for furniture’s that makes a statement
    So you want the living room to be much spacious to make space for air and light, a simple way to achieve this is to make use of a large couch rather than several small pieces which makes it look a lot cluttered.
  5. Put a striped rug on the ground
    This works perfectly in a small bedroom. Putting a striped rug like that of a zebra makes your room appear bigger.
  6. Use color coding on shelves
    Arranging items on shelves according to colors makes space looked structured and organized which finally gives the room a spacious appeal.
  7. Improve a tiny bathroom with a clear shower curtain
    You can give a little bathroom a spacious look by having a brightly colored shower curtain.
