How to: Make Your Space Look Larger

Have a small space you’d like to make look larger? Today, we are going to share with you four tips to creating an open look to a small space.

Tip 1:

Color matters. Color is more than picking a color scheme that is ascetically appealing. Colors that are lighter will help to create the illusion of a larger, more open space.

Tip 2:

Recessed lighting. Using recessed lighting in a small space helps to open up your space by create a perimeter ‘glow.’ Recessed lighting will bounce light off the walls – illuminated the entire space and making it feel more open because of the increased illumination.

Tip 3:

Mirrors. Adding wall mirrors create the illusion of a larger space for the obvious reason – that it creates an illusion of more space, but also because it reflects light – making your small area brighter and offers the feel of a more open space even in small quarters.

Tip 4:

Finally, use a glass table or coffee tables. This opens up your space and doesn’t make it feel ‘cramped’ by too much or too bulky furniture.
