5 Simple Tricks To Expand Your Space
Who would not want to live in a spacious, roomy space? Even though small rooms can offer warmth and coziness, the sense of spaciousness do help after a long day at work, or when you just need to sit back and relax.
Tricks To Expand Your Space
A bigger-looking space will not only make you feel relaxed, but it will also add some functionality to your room as well. Here are some tricks that will make your space look bigger!
1. Use lighter colors
This is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to make your space look bigger. Even though darker shades add a character, lighter tones do bring brightness and a sense of spaciousness to any room. So paint your walls with lighter and softer colors, and opt for accessories and furniture that are also light-colored. This not only expands out the space, but also adds a modern style to the room.
2) Organize your layout
This might be one of the most important aspects to consider when it comes to decorating a small space. You need to be able to use the space functionally, so arrange your furniture accordingly – this does not necessarily mean that you have to shove them right against the walls; you can place the sofa in the middle of the room, and create your space around it. While you’re at it, try not to pick heavy pieces, either.
3) Opt for multifunctional furniture
Even though we love gazing at stylish furniture, not every one of us have a big space to put so many of them in. You should opt for multifunctional furniture – such as using a coffee table with racks so that you can place your mugs on it while stacking your magazines underneath. Better yet, give up on that coffee table and use side tables instead. In fact, you can stack old books together and use them as side table – functionality and style at the same time.
Another trick for living rooms is that you can also use big pillows instead of a second sofa to widen the space out and use them both as a seating area as well as stylish and cozy accessories.
For kitchens and bathrooms, you can make use of floor-to-ceiling shelving to make the most of the space and create a stylish storage space.
4) Include mirrors
This is one of the oldest tricks for making a space look bigger, but it does wonders. We believe that it brings a stylish touch to the room, and it does expand the space so much better than you’d expect. Use mirrors to create a sense of openness.
5) Forget about curtains
This goes for living rooms and bedrooms. Skipping the drapes and leaving them uncovered definitely creates a sense of openness as well, plus it is a trending décor idea! If you think you would be uncomfortable without curtains, you can use lightweight and breezy ones to increase the sense of airiness of the room.
