Whether you need more floor space within your house or apartment or just want your rooms to appear more spacious, here are some tips for making the space appear roomier, bigger, less cluttered and more relaxing:-
Wall Hung Furniture
Furniture that is attached to the wall, rather than sitting on the floor, create the illusion of more space. Examples include using more shelves, bedside lockers that are wall-hung, foldaway tables and chairs, wall-hung desks and tables.
Glass, Mirrored or Perspex Furniture
Being able to see through furniture ‘to the other side’ means the room seems bigger as the opposite wall and floor is visible. Mirrored furniture or mirrors on the wall, especially if positioned opposite a window, can make the room seem almost bigger the size.
Choose furniture with legs! Furniture that goes all or almost all the way to the floor means that it looks like a solid block. Being able to see under the furniture means it seems lighter and smaller.
Sliding Doors or Curtains
Normal doors require quite a bit of space to open up fully but you can use a sliding door or a curtain instead as a space saver. You can even use a curtain to partition a room or to hide away items stored in a hallway or landing.
Using Vertical Space
There has been a move to vertical gardening in small spaces but you can apply the same principles within your home too. Use the walls for storing kitchen items and crockery. Place items that aren’t used frequently high up on the walls including above the door frames.
I hope you find these tips useful if you’re working to make rooms in your home seem bigger or make them less cluttered.
