How to make a small room seem bigger

If there's one thing we could change about our homes, most of us would probably wish that they had more space. While this may not always be feasible, creating the illusion of more space is quite easy. You don’t need a bigger home - there are many things you can do to make a small room seem bigger and it's much cheaper than moving house!

To make a small room seem bigger, the most important thing is to get rid of all the clutter. If you are a hoarder you will never have the space you want. It is the easiest way to make the most of your space. Don't worry though, you don't have to throw away all your favourite pictures and ornaments, you just need to keep unnecessary clutter to a minimum.

Another easy way to get more space in the living room is by having a flat screen on the wall. It saves taking up room with a TV stand.

Colours can give the illusion of space. If you have a small room that is decorated with dark coloured paint and furniture, it will seem smaller than the same room in lighter colours. This doesn’t mean that you have to have all white walls and light coloured furniture. You can still play with dark and bold colours in the room, but try to avoid excessive use and remember that it's best to steer clear of dark walls.

Mirrors can also help a lot with making the room seem bigger and they add extra light to the room.

Hidden drawers are a great way of adding storage without making a room seem packed or cluttered.

These are just a few of the ways you can make the most of your space and make a small room seem bigger. Once you know these tricks, it's relatively easy to accomplish and if you follow these tips in every room, your whole home will feel a lot bigger.
