Wanting a bigger living space is something a lot of us struggle with. However, with the constant rise in housing prices and lack of availability, it’s not always easy to be able to make that move, which is why we’re helping you fall in love with your home again by showing you the best ways to give the illusion of a bigger home.
Optimise your space
To start you want to make sure you’re optimising your space, which you can do mainly by building ‘up’ instead of ‘out’. Higher shelves are a great use of space and will help you to declutter a room if everything is put away in an area that’s hard to see.
You can also do this by purchasing furniture made for smaller spaces, pull-out beds or folding away dining room tables are a brilliant example of this, as well as placing this furniture in the right places to optimise the space.
Install higher windows and doors
Another thing to consider is having higher windows and doors installed. A large window or door will give the illusion of a bigger room, especially when it can be opened out into another area.
Bifold doors are the perfect example of this as they don’t need any space to pull out into but they can fully fold back and open up to create the illusion that your space is nice and open, making it appear much bigger.
Use your walls
If your walls are quite a dark colour then chances are this is making your room look a lot smaller. Try painting your walls a lighter colour and adding a pop of colour by having a feature wall, whether this is just one colour or patterned wallpaper.
You can also hang mirrors up on your walls, they will reflect the room and give the illusion of a bigger space.
