Lots of people want to have a larger home or living space, however due to a variety of reasons such as property availability, budget or simply life’s practicalities people often compromise on the space they would prefer in their home.
Some love this, some don’t, while many don’t want to live in a large home and are content in a standard sized home, many want to make it feel as light and spacious as possible.
No matter the size of your living space, you will have to undoubtedly compromise on your design and style choices. If you are looking for a cosy ‘snug’ space, then you’re in luck! With the simple addition of some dark pieces, warm tones and dramatic lighting you can easily create a relaxing space.
However, if you really want to increase the feeling of space in your home, slight design choices can really help you make the most of your space and make an area seem larger, without having to knock down a wall or two!
Check out some of our top tips below to make your space feel as large as possible!
Nothing makes a space feel smaller than when it is cluttered! Work out ways to remove pieces you no longer need or use. While you’re doing that, why not try and create creative storage solutions, such as hidden storage or stylish shelves?
The best way to declutter is to layout everything on a floor or table and remove what you no longer need!
Open Up Your Space
Furniture and accessories may be blocking the view into a room and out to open spaces. This will make your room feel cramped and small. By rearranging furniture to create walk ways and clear spaces you will make any room feel larger and much more spacious.
Top Tip: Use low pieces of furniture, like a low coffee table, etc, this will draw your eye-line up and allow your space to feel instantly larger!
Colour Is Key
Choose colours that are in the same colour family and be sure to add texture where possible, this will give your room a spacious yet comfortable feeling.
Let there Be Light!
Any room looks instantly larger when it is well lit with natural light. Get rid of heavy curtains and open up your windows to let as much natural light in as possible. Adding mirrors and reflective surfaces to a room, allows natural light to bounce off surfaces and increase the feeling of space in your room.
Use Light Fabrics
Sheer and light fabrics, such as curtains, bed furnishings and table covers, allow light to pass through. But don’t worry, light fabrics doesn’t mean plain, why not go for a print such as floral or stripes to add some personal style to your home!
