Mirrors can make a room look larger
One of the easiest ways to make a room look bigger is by adding mirrors. These decorative mirrors both bring in light and create an optical illusion. If you have a small room and add mirrors, you have a doubling effect. This makes the room appear more welcoming and can help it look bigger. If you want more light in your home, mirrors put in strategic places can help with that too.
Use light colors when painting, tiling, and more
If you want a room to look bigger, stick to lighter colors. This is true when you’re choosing paint colors and when you’re choosing new tiles. Darker colors can make a room feel smaller and more claustrophobic while lighter colors have the opposite effect. Not only do lighter colors help to make your home feel larger, they also make a home more comfortable and simply more enjoyable to live in.
Let the light shine in
In addition to light paint and tile colors, you should let natural light into your home as well. This will have a similar effect as what you get when you paint or use light tiles in the bathroom, kitchen, etc. You can add more natural light by removing curtains that are covering your windows, investing in window coverings that allow more light in, or even adding bigger windows. For some homeowners, it’s as simple as rearranging a room so that the focus is on areas that have natural light.
Bring the outdoors in
Adding a few green plants to your home can have an impact in several ways. First, it actually adds oxygen to your home. This can make it feel fresher and more comfortable. Second, it helps to make your room appear more natural and relaxing. Think about taking a nice long walk through a green, plant-filled area. What does it make you feel? If you’re like most people, it makes you feel cozy and comfortable. Bringing in the outdoors can also help make a room feel larger.
