How to Make Your Small Place Look Large

Just because a room might be on the smaller side does not mean it has to appear that way!

Many people find their apartments to be rather small and limited in space. The main issue that small apartment owners have with their apartment is the limited space they have. Just because your apartment doesn’t rival most grand ballrooms doesn’t mean it has to feel or even look small. Here are a few tips on how you can make your small space look and feel so much bigger.

  1. Light Colors on Walls & Floors

While darker colors make a room feel cozy, they absorb more light and make the room feel small. Light colored floors and walls reflect a lot more light making it seem much more open.

      2. More is Less, Less is More

In a small living room, one giant couch, rather than two or three small ones, actually decreases the look of clutter and makes the room feel a lot bigger. An L-shaped couch is ideal for small living rooms.

      3. Pull Furniture Away From the Walls

Pushing furniture against the wall makes everything feel too cramped. Pulling your couches and tables just a few inches from the wall can make any space look more open.

  1. Use Light to Your Advantage

Mirrors reflect almost 100 percent of light, and as we mentioned in #1, light makes any room look bigger. Placing a mirror directly across a window will reflect the natural light coming in and make the room feel larger. It also creates the illusion of more space as it reflects the openness of your room.
