Even though tiny homes have found favor with some people and reality show viewers, having plenty of space is what most homeowners still prefer. Even though some rooms or spaces feel a bit too small, there are plenty of ticks and trips you can use to make them feel larger.

  • Organization – If a room is disorganized or messy, it will often feel smaller. Cleaning up the clutter out of a room can help you utilize all of the space you actually do have. Utilize storage and pieces that have more than one function. Bring your furniture out from the walls to open the room up. Consider practical furniture like a behind-the-sofa table.
  • Color and Design – Warmer colors can make a space feel cozy, but you may not want that if you have a small room. Try using light and cool colors to open up the space and make it feel airy. Soft tones like blues or greens are ideal. Try a monochromatic color scheme using the same family of colors. Lighter colored flooring is also recommended. Stripes on walls or rugs can help to lengthen the room.
  • Paint your ceiling or use wallpaper to make the room appear taller.
  • Draw the eye upward by hanging shelves near the ceiling.
  • Use fewer but larger decorations such as vases.
  • A clear shower curtain can make a small bathroom feel larger.
  • Strategically placed mirrors can provide the illusion of more space.
  • Oversized art can make the room feel bigger if used tastefully.
  • Furniture with legs creates a visual trick to allow your eyes to move through the pieces.
